Exclamation put your build thread in your signature

i notice most of us do not have a link to your build thread in your signature.
having the year of your truck and a link to your thread in every post you make,
is better than the 2nd post asking what year truck you have.

i had to modify my signature line today (rip fiberglassforums.com ) and took a few screen shots of the process.

step 1: go to the first page of your build thread, click on and copy the header. i use chrome but it should be similar in all web browsers.
use what ever method works for you to copy the text, i just use ctrl+c to copy



step 2: click on User CP (user control panel), then click on the Edit Signature link and you will see this edit signature page
click on the icon Insert Link that looks like a globe and chain link and a window will pop up like this.
paste the text you copied from your build thread into the text box and click on OK
to paste use what ever you use, i just click in the box and use Ctrl+v to paste



step 3: after you click on OK you will see this screen.
it will show the link to your thread AND it will show a duplicate highlighted link to your thread.
while the text is highlighted type a description for your thread, i typed ''Ogre's 58 Truk build'' and the link shows like this Ogre's 58 Truk build
if you hit save signature without typing in the highlighted text your thread will look like this http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=501998





step 4: click on the Preview Signature button and you should see your new link in the Preview pane
click on this Preview link and it should open a new window into the first page of your build thread.
if your thread does not open in in a new window, something is wrong, go back to step 1.
then click on Save Signature button to save your signature.
every thread you post to will now have a link to your thread, if you wisely put the year of your truck in the link everyone will know.



i use this method to insert the link you see below in my signature line

Re: put your build thread in your signature

step3 is also used anytime you want to insert a link into a thread post in any thread.
copy the link, use the insert link button, paste the link, click ok and type the description you want.
i can direct you to my build thread here or Ogre's 58 Truk build or XXX

Re: put your build thread in your signature

My building is going so slow on the 48 that I would have to post a "life gets in the way" thread. This 'easy" engine swap in my 71 is eating my time and extra cash to the point I can't even think about getting back on the 48.

Re: put your build thread in your signature

That would be nice to have to be able to see what someone is working on.

My progress on the 48 is too minimal at the moment to warrant wasting space on a build page. The engine swap on the 71 has eaten all of the time and money earmarked for the 48 and the other projects and the end isn't in sight yet.

I would much rather have everyone post info on the truck they are working on that brings them to this forum so we can more readily be able to answer a question that they present. Being able to look at the signature line and see what their project is makes it a lot easier to answer a question and many guys do not have their trucks listed in their profiles so that really makes it hard give an answer when you have no idea of what they are working on.

Re: put your build thread in your signature

Sheesh! "Do this, do that, do it this way" A guy could get a complex with all the orders flying around!

Ok, so I did it. Happy now?

(Good suggestion. Good too that you posted screen shots or I'd have never figured it out)

Geeze, Ogre, I think I finally got the code right.
I couldn't have done it without your explicit instructions!

Re: put your build thread in your signature

Ogre thanks for the help as I've been trying to figure out how to do this. The screen shots were very appreciated by us computer illiterate old farts.

Regarding.... "click on the icon Insert Link that looks like a globe and chain link and a window will pop up like this. paste the text you copied from your build thread into the text box and click on OK to paste use what ever you use, i just click in the box and use Ctrl+v to paste" .....it always took me to a GCI website after it started to open. I finally just pasted the address directly into the box below the icon and it worked fine. Anyone else have this problem?

Re: put your build thread in your signature

you must be clicking on a different globe w/link command icon.
done properly your link would look like this --> '48 Chev extended cab with attitude
there is a red arrow in the pic below pointing up to the correct ''insert link'' icon,
if you mouse over the icon it will tell you what it is.
either way your project and a link to it is in your sig.
this tutorial was written by an old fart, being an old fart is no excuse

I took this personally..... and I should!!!! my bad.

I'll give it a try later, thanks for the reminder Ogre.

By the way, my spell checker says you spelled "should" wrong.
