I'm just wondering how do you make a link but make it so the address is not displayed? (ie. "My DVDs") I would like to link to my DVD Profiler page in my signature but I don't want the address showing. Could someone help me?

Keith,
You have to use a special form of the URL tag. As follows:
{URL=http://www.realURL.com/page.html}Name You Want Us To See{/URL}
Of course, the "{" and "}" are to be replaced by square brackets.
Another possibility is to use the HTML anchor tag. But why make it more difficult?
Good luck!
Cees

Keith, use the following UBB code (with the spaces removed):
[ url=http://www.yoursite.com ]WhateverNameYouWant[ /url ]
HTML isn't allowed in signatures, but in your posts you can also use the following tag (again after removing the spaces):
< A HREF="http://www.yoursite.com" >WhateverNameYouWant< /A >

There's an icon on the reply page that makes this very easy. It's above the smilies, fifth from the right (after bold, ital, underline, centered).
