I am going to have to stop this for today as it is driving me out of my mind. And I have stuff to do.
May be I am missing I dont know where to find the CODE Select all screen.
If I paste your link address into my signature and preview I get an error code, and the same if I cut and paste the example from the fh instruction page.
You cannot use certain BBCodes: [url].
Thank you for your help. I did it no problem four years ago which shows my brain is going.

The CODE: SELECT ALL is just a way to show raw text in a posting.
Otherwise the [url] BBCode is activated and you won't see it.

Because it was abused by hackers the [url] BBCode is now barred in Profile Signatures.
Legacy users such as Helen are able to retain their previously entered code, but new entries are not allowed.

When we were having lots of problems with Spammers, I turned off the use of links in Signatures. Existing ones were retained but new ones restricted. I have turned the option back on.
