Linking to this place

    Here's the plan. I'd like to use the following graphic as my signature over at the clubs message board... (with the image creators permission of course)...

    [​IMG]

    ...and I'd like it to link to here if clicked on. My problem is I've never succesfully managed to insert an image for my sig over there, let alone a link, and I call myself an administrator ::)

    Any advice welcomed!

    Sounds like a plan but you can get accused of spamming if you ram it down peoples throats.

    I popped a note over at the yahoo fantasy footy forums for Watford supporters, and submitted the site address to Yahoo & Google (hope that was OK)

    No problem, I appreciate you doing it. Within the forum software admin area there's a button to directly submit the site to all the major search engines & bots. I haven't done it yet but it'll happen soon. As for spamming I agree it's an issue, which is why I've not been ramming it down their thoats over there. I do keep posting so that the link is seen, but people get used to seeing text at the bottom of posts, I wanted something a little more noticeable yet not in your face and I think the image above is perfect. I might pop over there now and have a little play!

    I dont think it would be spamming as the URL is subtle, and not a major par of the pic.

    Getting there. To link to an image in your signature you need to put the following...

    <img src="image link here"

    Strangely enough there doesn't appear to be a > at the end of the line, but maybe that's my cut and paste? Takes a few minutes for the software to catch up though. Still don't know how to link through it yet.

    Hers the funny thing, I know the code but it doesn't stay in the sig box for some reason.

    Code is...<A HREF="http://www.wfcforums.com"> <IMG SRC="image url"

    When I used a big old picture it worked OK, but this one it won't. Still trying, (but not for much longer tonight).

    Link works OK here. I'd put it down to the steam powered server and punchcard software they use over there.

    The server over there doesnt allow for external linking i think you will find.
    If you notice none ot URL's people put in there will work as links like they would on normal boards like lets say.. this one!

    I have my strip in place and staying put over there now!
    lets see if it brings in the crowds, not that it isnt nice having an exclusive little club here but a few extra people would be good, just so long as we can keep out the numpties!

    Gave up reading that thread when it started to take more than 30 secs to load. Another advantage of these superb forums.

    With the balanced and well adjusted contributors on this forum, I don't think there are going to be any woosh moments for a while. :)
