    I'm tired of my 'want list' looking long and sloppy in my signature. I've looked all over but can't find how to make it look nice with one word "wants" as text for a link. Someone show me how to do this please. Thanks

    Hey Lixx,

    Enter it as:
    [ url=http://url]Wants[ /url ]

    ...but without the spaces before "url" and before and after "/url"

    Cool problem solved thanks guys. Now for extra credit how do I make it look fancy with different color or bold text for the word 'Wants'? :)

    When you enter your sig, you can pick a color from the font list and it will show up as [ color=#0000FF][/color ] again without the spaces though. Just put that around your "Wants" like this: Wants.

    Just noticed . . . I had the Thrashout Zag on the BST a little while back. Was $150 an outrageous price? . . . it got no bites so went back on the shelf!

    Too bad I can't pick GID for my color code but I guess all text is GID on the web. Andy, your price seemed reasonable to me it just reached the upper limits of my affordability and is not the highest priority want at the moment. Beyond 150 for one figure has to be something that will fetch me coffee in the morning. ;)
