Member Website Links

I apologize if this is something obvious that I'm missing, but I noticed when I registered that there was a space to put a web address if I had a blog (which I do) or other website. Looking around on the forum it doesn't seem as though there are links automatically tied to people for that. For instance, nobody's username seems to be a link. There's also no links to people's profiles. So how would anyone know that I have a blog and how to get there? Should I post a topic somewhere inviting people to check me out? Or did I miss where interested parties could get that info on their own? I don't mind posting a topic, I'm just confused why there would be a space for it at the registration but no obvious links anywhere.

If you look on this post, you'll see your name is a link. Click on it, and you'll see that your website info is posted right there in your profile. Smile

That's the thing, I'm not getting a link when I move the mouse over my name or anyone else's. That's why I was confused. I'll go ahead and make a signature just in case.

Anyone else have this happen?

It wasn't letting me click names, but then I logged in, and now it works. Is profile viewing locked for members who are under a certain number of points?

Only for anonymous users.

Also:

1. None of us is above a little shameless self-promotion.

2. If you have something especially noteworthy, feel free to post a new topic drawing attention to it.

3. Link to your blog in your signature, also conveniently located in your profile.

I do all three on a regular basis, usually hijacking a thread for my own sake in the process. No one will think less of you for letting us know you exist elsewhere, too. Hell, they haven't voted me off the island yet.

And I will read the phone book if I have to, by god.

Somehow the toggle allowing authenticated-but-not-ranked users to see profiles was turned off. It wasn't supposed to be like that. It isn't now. Thanks for finding that!

Oh good, then it wasn't just me being a dumbass somehow. The name links are working for me now. Thanks! That means I can delete my signature (never been much fan of those).

It was supposed to be that way, to prevent people from just making an account and gaining access to social network info when you added that to the profiles. Not that it's necessary, any spammers we've had haven't bothered with an account, but I do recall that there was a reason for it.
