 paste this smaller link in the link spot instead of the entire one - http://bit.ly/2trWVjZ ;

I think it was maybe not having the smaller bit.ly link for it - the signature section is limited on spacing I think, and messes it up if you don't use the shortened version. 




Haha, still having issues. Such is life.

Thanks maiaco - busy day and i didn't get out to CWC til now .

@Joni - the signature is limited -but not *that limited,  It's over 100 characters - maybe over 200 (i just dont recall at the moment - anyone?).  With shortened urls I have been able to get four rounds of stories in my sig.  The ugly part is, it doesn't tell you when you have exceeded - it just refuses to save :(

Well, I don't think I am ready for this level education! Tried to jump on board at the last minute because it looked so fun. But... I am on an extended RV vacation with less than stellar tech options. I received feedback that my link is not working. Yesterday after I did what I could, I checked and it seemed all functional (I celebrated a bit because it is all new to me). Today I went back to try to fix the link and then the whole body of my post changed to show all the 'coding language'?. 

Now I am stuck. If there is anyone who might want to talk me through at least fixing it or even removing it, I would be thrilled!

Pacific standard time here. My time online will be hit and miss over the next two days! 
Thank you!

Michaela

You've put the link to the "edit post" in your signature rather than to the post itself, which could be causing some of your difficulties.
