    I was wondering how I can add a URL tag in my signature here. I want it to be a link when I click it, but not to have the actual link, but like the title of the website or something like that.

    FOR EXAMPLE:

    The link is to redsox.com

    However, I do not want it to say: redsox.com, but Red Sox.

    How can I do this? Thanks.

    Like this:

    [ url="redsox.com"]Red Sox[/url ]

    without the spaces by the brackets.

    Yes and there are instructions. However, all you need is
    [ URL="http://cubs.com"]CUBS[ / URL]

    Just remove the spaces.

    Thanks for the responses. No, it was just an example. I am trying it out right now. Thanks.

    You don't have to put quote marks around the URL. These are the same:
    [url="http://www.macrumors.com"]MacRumors[/url]

    [url=http://www.macrumors.com]MacRumors[/url]​

    The "Insert Link" tool (the one with the [​IMG] icon) adds extraneous quote marks, and they don't hurt anything, but they aren't needed if you type a URL yourself.
