    I used to be able to just put a weblink in my sig & it worked at the press of a button.

    Could also create a hyperlink in a thread & copy it to my sig... & it would work.

    Now all of a sudden I can't get my sig links to work.

    Edit update 03/16/17: Hyperlinks are now working... but I was not able to do it. Lethal did it for me. with the first 2. Then a couple days ago I went to edit in the 3rd hyperlink currently in my sig... & it nixxed all my hyperlinks. Once again Lethal fixed them for me. He said that it looked like the formatting was missing... but as I understand it... that's not something I can do for myself... so there is still work to be done on the software. I would think that a user should be able to create these links themselves without extra help.

    I am in the same boat. I tried to add a link to my sig and it erased all of my links which are vital to my existence here at SD. I am so freaked out now.

    If anyone has links in their sig DO NOT EDIT YOUR SIG OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR LINKS.

    Yeh, someone turned off links, font sizes, everything else for regular people up to and including mods a few weeks ago

    Nobody is owning up to it though :), :)

    @Tachy

    BWR mentioned you thought it waz fixed for registered users now... It still Doesn't seem to be working... I created this Hyperlink

    #LegionOfGroove

    Then I copy/pasted it from here into my sig but the hyperlink didn't work. I also re-pasted the web address in there & that didn't work either.

    Interestingly, when I click "preview" in the "edit signature" area... the links DO work. lol... (even the hyperlink I created) they just don't transfer to the forum. Even the one for the Learn to shoop thread worked there & I didn't re-copy it or anything

    they dont want us putting links to our signatures in case we post dodgy links in there

    god forbid if someone clicked on my signature and it linked to a porn site, or a virus removal site or the like...

    We promise we won't do that.

    Can we get our links back please?

    If we did do that, we can still post the link... it just won't be a hyperlink. You'll get none of those hyjinx from us though. :D

    Fixed your sig, should be linked now. Not sure why some members are having problems with it.

    Hi dim. I have been in contact with @Tachy about this. At one point he seemed to have thought that he fixed it, but I haven't heard from him since. I reckon I should contact him again. There has been talk about this in the mods' section, so it is a known issue. I should make a disclaimer that this is what I know. I am not privy to everything, so maybe there is something else to it, but it doesn't seem so.

    I can't edit the sigs of other Staff members. Are you using Chrome? I haven't been having any issues with links in sigs at all.

    WOO HOO! Lethal is my hero!

    [​IMG]

    Is it a permanent fix where I can edit in different links, or do you have to do it for me every time?

    Me bro @bigwaverider needz his links fixed. Do you need him to post the URL's to make the hyperlinks

    edit: Just saw your post to BWR... thanx so much for helping!

    Now that's messed up. I can see my sig link in Chrome (on PC and Android Phone), Internet Explorer (on PC and Windows Phone), Opera, Tor browser, Brave browser, The Sherdog App on my phone, UC BrowserHD on my tablet, but not in Firefox. Yes, I have a lot of browsers but Firefox is the one that I use on this forum.

    The other day I had a user tell me they couldn't see my sig links so maybe he's using FF too? @Myrddin Wild can you see my sig links and what browser are you on?

    I just editted my sig in Chrome to see if it would fix it on Firefox. Now the sign links aren't working on Chrome. :eek:
    This is the same thing that happened to me in Firefox. My sig was working fine. I edited it, and the links no longer worked. :mad::mad::mad:

    I use Firefox on Sherdog too... Can't see your links bro. :oops:

    I can see mine though.

    Edit: I did that check 10 minutes after you posted this though....

    Interestingly, on Microsoft Edge & Internet Explorer (my only other 2 browsers)... I don't even see anyone'z signature at all! lol... It's just empty space. :eek: Spooky

    I wonder if @Lethal will be able to see my sig links in Chrome now that I screwed those up too.

    Even before that change, your sig was never linkable on my browser.

    When you say "never" do you mean just since you were aware of this issue a few weeks ago or even before that? So odd that editing a sig will screw it up now.
