    Hello everybody. So, first of ally sorry for this idiot question, but: how can I insert in my signature an image, which, if clicked, leads to a specific web page or forum thread?

    Thank you in advance.

    You need to click on the little switch to the upper left that says: BBCode Mode and add the following:
     
    xurl=link of sitex ximg=link to imagex x/urlx
     
    x = [ and ] respectively.

    Here's my example: (Just quote my post and click BBCode mode and you will see how It's setup).

    I think in the past, I've just highlighted the picture I want to use and then click the little thing that looks like a chain and paste the url.

    You will need to host an image first.  I chose imgur.

    [​IMG]

    This is the line you will need highlighted marked "Linked BBC Codes"

    The first part of this is the URL and the second is the IMG.

    You will want to change the URL to the http address you want attached to the image.

    I recommend you open up notepad or a document program first and copy paste the origin address in there to work with.

    Copy the address of the link you wish the image to redirect people too in full with HTTP attached and copy it from the address bar

    Highlight the HTTP portion of the Linked BBC Code in your text editor and paste in the new one

    Now go into your settings and click on edit signature, or about you page.

    Paste in the edited Linked BBC Code

    Click Preview

    The window will refresh and give you the image, mouse over it and right click "Open in New Tab" to see if it worked.

    Examples are in my signature.  Feel free to message me with the image and I can help get it working if you are unsuccessful.
