OK, How the hell do we underline links with our own witty puns? Buggered if I can find how to.

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Do you mean something like this?

Yes. How the hell do you do that?
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

It's not magic, but the New Forum Software (NFS) makes it all a bit confusing.

First, some explanation of the New Forum Software (NFS) and the way it works, as well as a few definitions.

When you write a forum post, you'll use the Post Editor in one way or another. This post editor you'll use either in the box at the bottom of a topic window, or in a new window, after you clicked the button labelled "More Reply Options". The editors are the same for this discussion, but the latter has a few more options and buttons.

The most important thing to know is that the Editor now has, due to some dweebs at Invision who ought to be flogged in public, two different editing modes, which I'll call Modern and Classic.

Before I go on, let me show a picture of the editor, so that we all know what we're talking about:

Posted Image

In this picture I've circled two buttons, with a call-out and digit '1' and '2', respectively.

Use the button labelled '1' (I suppose it's supposed to show a light switch) to switch editing mode in the Editor. Now let me explain those two modes.

Modern mode is intended as a kind of "What You See Is What You Get" editor. For many, but by no means all, purposes this will do all you need.

Classic mode is a bare bones text editor, where all markup like typeface, URLs and images is showed and edited in BBCode, the bits with the square brackets around them. All markup buttons are disabled.

In Modern mode the way to get a nice link is this:
  • Type the text you want underlined in the link.
  • Copy the URL you want to link to in your computer's copy/paste buffer
  • Select the text you want underlined in the editor, like this

    Posted Image
  • Click the button labelled '2' in the editor. This produces a window like this:

    Posted Image
  • Paste the URL from the copy/paste buffer
  • Hit the OK button

Et voilá.

In Classic mode, you'll have to type a BBCode link like:

[url="http://www.foo.com"]Bar[/url]

where the bit between double speech marks is the URL to which you want to link and the bit between the URL and /URL tags contains the text which you want underlined in the link.

Hope this helps.
Hein

Found it! The new thread about The Bill seems to have initially veered wildly off topic....

Sometimes when we see the eyes- those horrible times when we see the eyes,eyes that ... that have no soul - then we know a darkness.

By using the img and /img tags, with square brackets around them. Interesting enough, you already use them in your .sig, with the Posted Image joker image.

What you do now fails, because you use round brackets around the tags.

I don't want to encourage more readers to add animated gifs (or for that matter large pictures) to their signatures. So listen very carefully, I shall say this only once…

In other words: it's the bog-standard way of putting a picture in BBCode.

I don't mind gifs as long as they are not in signatures.

I find them very distracting (and tiring on the eyes) especially large ones like the above, but I don't want to opt out of seeing all signatures.
