    In Edit Signature, Everythind typed is red and underlined.

    How do I get my BLACK cursor back in "Edit Signature"? Everything that is typed is in red and underlined like a URL.

    What caused this? I did not leave a space after I typed in a Help URL that was posted in red. Nevermind.

    FIX = I cut and pasted a black URL into Edit Signature & that fixed it.

    It sounds as though you are using WYSIWYG mode in the message editor. If your settings are giving you WYSIWYG mode for the post message editor, you will get the same for the signature editor. WYSIWYG mode is very confusing when trying to incorporate BBCode into a post or into a signature. My guess is a misplaced [/URL] BBCode tag was causing the problem you describe. You can't see the BBCode tag in WYSIWYG mode and it's easy to be typing with the cursor on the wrong side of it.

    You can change your default editor mode from settings -> General Settings -> Message Editor Interface. If you want to change mode for a single post or just for editing your signature, the icon in the message editor toolbar that looks a bit like A/A will toggle between WYSIWYG and source mode.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.
