    I know this is probably a stupid question with an easy answer, but here goes anyway. I want to add a hyperlink in my signature area that does not show the URL, but it shows the text of my choosing. I have tried using HTML tags to do this, but it never works. All I want to do is add my Twitter account but make it say "Follow me on Twitter" or something to that effect. Can someone please tell me how to accomplish this? Thank you in advance.

    EDIT: Darn, I just noticed this is probably in the wrong sub form. I am sorry about that. Please move this thread to wherever it belongs.

    Thanks so much for the help. Again, sorry for the wrong sub forum placement. ;)

    I am usually more wary of that. Oh well. :)

    Says I can't have one. Who do I have to bribe?

    Can developers get them so we can show the world our stuff? Would be useful to others.

    They're disabled until you hit 25 posts. Think it's to stop spammers putting links there.

    Got 25 up now, without even deliberately spamming! :)

    However I still can't get one?

    You might have to wait for a little bit. I don't really know why it's not working.

    PM me if you want me to set up your signature for now. ;)

    Changing mine "took" in about 10 minutes or so.

    Maybe the system is analysing each one for proper content.

    That's a half-joke. ^^^^ :D

    I think the sig system might be broken. I've put one in and it shows up when I post, but when I come back later as the thread is continued, it's gone again.

    Now I come to think of it, it's very rare to spot a sig at all. I've just been rooting in the options and can't find anywhere I may have disable viewing them. Frisco's is visible right now.

    Weird.

    EDIT: Yep, just hit F5 and my sig is gone.

    It's that way by design. It's supposed to show up the first time you post in the thread, then all subsequent posts you make in that thread won't have one.

    Unfortunately, the plugin which controls that has to be enabled on each sub forum individually meaning there are some which Phases may have missed (there are over 300 subforums here iirc).

    There are a few posts in the Suggestions & Feedback forum if you want more info: Suggestion Box & Feedback - Android Forums

    Ah ok, at least I know I didn't do anything wrong.

    Thanks for a speedy and useful response. :)

    I've had a look myself and can see nothing wrong with the code. Give it another day and if it's still not appearing in any forums send Phases a PM.

    edit: I tried editing it, saving, re-editing back to your original and resaving but nada.... still no show. :(
