Newbie to this forum, I posted my first pics of a project I'd completed, along with a link to my blog where I have lots of other photos of the same project, but the link was removed by the moderator, so I figured this is a forum where you can't share your blogs, but now I see other people showing them in their profile info.  Soooo, I went in there and added mine, but it doesn't show upHuh

So, I'm confused.  I don't sell anything on my blog, never have, so it can't be considered spamming, and anyway, many people sell on their Etsy sites and link to them.....................

Ok, it's easy to get confused sometimes! Smiley

For blogs:  if you post photos and some information on the project and link to your blog, you're fine. 

You can put your blog and/or etsy in your signature also.  If you need help getting it there, just holler!

Sevsonlygirl & Sweets4ever, thank you for your replies!
I guess I didn't include enough info on how I did the project in my blog, and that's why my link was removed. It's not really the kind of thing you can do a tutorial on; like most of my art, it just sorta happened, but I thought it might inspire someone else to try something similar..............

But then I went into my profile and added a link to my blog and one to a photo gallery, and they're not showing at the bottom of my posts like I've seen in some others' posts. Any ideas on what I'm doin' wrong?  Roll Eyes

Let's see if I can help:

So you click on My Craftster on the yellow ruler.  Then on the left side click on "Forum Profile Information".  There's a section that says "custom title" and "signature".  Add your links into the signature box.  Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Change Profile".  That should do it.

If not, please open a HelpDesk ticket and we'll help you figure it out. Smiley

Sevs is right on the money!

Currently you have them listed in your URL section.  If you click the globe graphic under your avatar, you'll see the #1 link on that list in action.

If you put them in your signature, as Sevs described, they'll actually be visible and fabulous at the bottom of each of your posts.

Ta-daah!  I didn't know I had to add it again to the Signature box. Hugzzzz to you both!..........one more thing, some people just have the words "My Blog" instead the link showing in the signature area.  How do they make that work?

I believe that if you use Name You Want Show then immediately following it it should show up.

Sweets might be able to better explain it though.  Make sure you leave no spaces between the [ ] and the name.  I did it because I didn't want it to show up as a link and you wouldn't be able to see it.lol
