This is a minor gripe, but the hyperlinks are not loading in my signature correctly.

Add in the http:// in front, and see if that fixes it.

It's that last slash. Delete it and then try.

ETA: Yeah definitely the slash.

Do you maybe have the "Disable BB code" option checked where you edit the signature?

This is the next best solution. When I copy and paste your link from your signature I get this:

Amanda McCarter’s Blog

Before, when I copied and pasted your signature I got what you had, until I deleted that last slash and it produced the link in my post above.

It was Monty's suggestion if changing the BB code settings is what fixed it. wotf007

Now you're all spiffy! wotf010

Who needs an admin, when there are so many helpful users?

Amanda, I see you got it fixed.

Cool.
