Thanks signature for working right after that! I'm convinced this forum lives to mess with me.

It should be near-instantly. Did you say "Show my sig on all posts"?

I have the box ticked in the control panel to show on all posts and I check in individual posts. Getting nothing.

I’ve figured it out! It doesn’t show on the mobile layout. Just switched to classic layout on my iPad and there it is.

My Contest Entries (Below) and How to Fix Your Sig Easy!

Hello, fellow writers!
I have noticed that some newbies have had trouble hyperlinking their
signature or their signatures go to their stories rather than their
forum posts which makes it hard to make comments.

1.  Create your forum post following the subject rules.  Add your description and
hyperlink to the location of your story (wordpress, blogger, google
docs, etc.) using the globe and paperclip icon as usual.

2.  Copy the link to that forum post. *

3.  Go to your Member Control Panel, to Edit Profile, scroll down the page to edit your signature

     You need to use BBcode brackets to make hyperlinks in your signature  [ ]
     You put the address like this: [URL= webaddresshere ] Text/Title Here [/URL]

      Here is mine as an example:

      [URL=http://forums.nycmidnight.com/rd1-heat10-mindful-things-spy_topic11946_post134726.html]Mindful Things R1 HEAT10 [/URL]




*Bonus: 
 
Save space by shortening long web addresses.
 
go totinyurl.com
 
paste in your link and it will shorten it for you

There
is a character count limit for all signatures.   If you want to create
two clickable links, you must use "short links" to save on extraneous
characters.

I think if you just click "edit post" and then click out again on each post, it should then show your new signature... 

EDIT: Sorry, just saw you got sorted!

Thanks so much for reaching out to the newbs. Between your coaching and someone else letting me know I hadn't set up my link to my story properly, I finally figured it out, fingers crossed.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. 

I see you have entered these competitions many times. Anxious to take a look!
