I see some folks have banner images again… they are not clickable, but there are links below or next to them…. how is this being done? If there is an info page I’d be grateful for a link…
Thanks in advance for any info or help!

Hi! look at the upper right of any top post on a thread page in a Forum. See the “Your Control Panel”? Click it and all will be revealed.

It’s called “Signature” but you probably knew that.

Yes they’re back, but this new forum software doesn’t allow (or DAZ prefer it not to allow) for linking to off-site sigtags.  That’s why they have the “upload” option and not the off-site URL option the old forum had.  I prefer the clickable sigtag too, but I tried, and it just comes out as text, so no-go.

The DAZ badges/banners aren’t working either. Guessing even those html codes are blocked.

Oh right, I totally forgot about those.  I know there are quite a few who used them in their signatures.  Hmmmm, maybe DAZ’ll change their minds about that, if it’s even possible with this new forum software.  Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Or maybe just post the badges as jpg’s so we can upload them ourselves. smile

Wow, thanks for all the replies.  I used to have a clickable banner, which I had learned how to make from a thread that was posted by Jamminwolf…  Apparently once I did it, I deleted it from my memory… probably replaced that info with a Margarita mix recipe or something…

I hope clickable banners are possible… eventually with Magento, if not that would be a really crappy shortcoming for that software… it seems surprisingly limited/difficult in terms of forum features, given it is supposed to be so widely used and so many companies wish to have communities around their products…

One other question… How do I do a link like (for example) Miss B has… hers is a clickable link that says “Visit My Renderosity Gallery” (nice fractals by the way)...
I’d like to have the link say “Visit McGyver’s Freebie Gallery” and it link to my ShareCG gallery…

Yes… I’m that dumb, I still don’t know how to do a link that is not an actual copy/paste address.


Anyway, thanks again in advance for any help on this subject.

you need to have [url=      ]  at the beginning putting the url in the space
then type your text
then [/url] at the end

SO then you get Type your text here

and if you click to quote that you will see exactly how I idd it

One of the things we are working on is the embedded images with links and embedded videos as well. We hope to have them working before too long.

Thank you chohole!
It works now! I’m bookmarking this so when I see something shiny and it distracts me, I’ll be able to do this again without bothering people.

Good to know DAZ_bfurner ! Thanks!

I See Cho has given you directions on how to do a text link, and that you got it done successfully.  wink

Oh, and glad you liked my fractals.  Haven’t done any recently, but when I get on a fractal binge, there’s just no stopping me.  grin
