    Hi,

    I had 2 perfectly working hyperlinks in my signature for quite a long time. Now I tried to update my signature with a new one, but it seems that BB-code is not working.
    I put the link in the usual URL-brackets, like
    Code (Text):
    1. [URL=http://some-random-url.com/]sample text[/URL]
    The Preview produces perfectly working links, but after saving the changes all BB-code is gone and just the plain text remains.



    The Editor for the signature doesn't offer any button for adding links (whereas the one I'm typing in now does). Here is the signature-Editor:

    And here the other one:
    MPForum_Editor.JPG

    Is this intended behaviour? Was there by any chance a change in the rules for signatures that I missed?

    Have you tried using the BB code editor? That's the far right icon on both editors.

    I did, but with the same result.

    Edit: I made a screencast and put it in my dropbox: LINK. (.MP4 ~ 2,6 MB)

    Try to put quotation marks around the url
    Code (Text):
    1. [URL='http://www.google.com']Google[/URL]

    Nope...doesn't change anything. :(
    Neither quotation marks nor using Internet Explorer (see how desperate I am :rolleyes:) made any difference. The BB-code is not saved.

    Test. Does my signature have a link?

    [edit: Clearly it works for me. The BB code I used was:
    Code (Text):
    1. [URL='http://www.google.com']www.google.com[/URL]
    ]

    I don't see any signature of yours:

    But I can see links all over the place in other signatures (the fancy ones with the favicon left of the text). Mine worked fine as well in the past. I didn't change anything. I saw they were broken before I tried to add a new one.

    Edit: Can anyone confirm that the signature-editor does indeed not have any buttons for hyperlinks?

    That's because I removed the link again after confirming that it worked.

    Here's a screenshot:
