Hi All! I'm a newbie! And haven't been able to edit my signature. I've just been trying to add a link to my blog and tried the UBB codes but I keep getting an error message to shorten the length. I even tried shortening my url, but it still doesn't work. :( All I'm putting in there is my url - not even text. I'm sure there's a way to add text and still have your url in the space alloted - but I just haven't figured it out. Hoping someone can help me and also help future-newbies. TIA. :)

Here is a bit of info from our Terms of Service:

Only One URL
A visitor post to the BellaOnline forums can only contain one URL per post - and the visitor only earns that right after they have established their standing within our forum system. [u]We do not allow brand new users to post ANY URLs to ensure they are not spammers.[/u] Only after a visitor has been with us for a while do we allow them to make ONE website recommendation per post. That URL can be in their signature or in the post itself, but not in both locations. The URL can never be an affiliate link or other for-cash promotion.

We look forward to you establishing yourself on the forums; then you will be able to add your url to your signature. Please be sure to stop by the ADD and Sandwiches forums! I look forward to your posts.

THANKS Connie :-)

Here is some more information, hope it helps!

"Visitors who have proven themselves by making over 50 non-promotional posts may at that point provide one external link. We had to implement this over-50-posts rule after years of dealing with mass-pasting spammers. The rule helps separate legitimate visitors who occasionally want to share a fun link with the posters solely using the forum system to get them free link farm activity. For this reason, usernames cannot be a URL.

Once a user is established and trusted, the one URL may be either manually entered or automatically via a signature."
