How to Get Hyperlinks in Your Microsoft Forum Signature

How to Get Hyperlinks in Your Microsoft Forum Signature

This article is part of the Wiki series: MSDN/TechNet Forums.




Hyperlinks

Try this:

<a href=http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/how-to-get-hyperlinks-in-your-microsoft-forum-signature.aspx>TechNet Wiki</a>

When it works correctly, you would see a hyperlink named "TechNet Wiki".

My signature looks like this:

Ed Price a.k.a User Ed, Microsoft Experience Program Manager (BlogTwitter, Wiki)

So I used three different "a" tags to make the links for my Blog, Twitter, and Wiki page.

Horizontal Rules


You can also add <hr/> if you want to separate your blog from the rest of your message, although one is already added automatically above your signature.


Font Style


You can also use colors and the center tag.

 Say, my signature looks like this
<font color="blue">For every expert, there is an equal and opposite expert. - Becker's Law
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>
<b><a href="http://blogs.lessthandot.com/index.php/All/?disp=authdir&author=218">My blog</a></b></font>
