I am not that computer literate and I am trying to create a clickable link that will show up every time I post at the bottom of my post.

The Link is to a youtube video of a song I really like by Tom T hall.

I can see the link I tried to create at the bottom of my post but I cannot just click on it and open it.

I have to highlight it first than I can open it.

I would appreciate it if someone could explain this to me so I can make it to where it highlights itself and then it can just be clicked on to open.

Thanks
Craig

When writing a post there is a row of buttons above your text field. You want to click on the URL button. You'll get two URL tags (inside brackets) with a blinking cursor between them. Paste your link right there, between the tags. Super easy.

If you hit the quote button on this post you should see the formatting for the link above.

I was trying to do it in my user control panel under edit signature and it told me that url was turned off.

I was wanting it to be at the bottom of my post automatically every time I post ,and not just a one time link.
Im confuzzled !

I think that it is called a signature.

At the bottom of this text.

Here ya go:
Put this code that will be shown if you click the quote button into your signature. You should realize that it will consume a lot of room. I had one in mine, and changed it back to the link without the URL coding. That feature was turned off due to spammers using it in a huge excess. That excess is causing me a lot of work to take them out.

I think that I will just leave it alone then.

Thanks
