Hello, XDA'ers,

There seem to be a lot of people on here that don't know how to make pictures "clickable", so I thought I might as well make a thread to help you guys out!

First, I'd like to notify you all that you are only permitted to have and edit a signature after you make 10 useful posts, so don't worry if your Control Panel doesn't have an "Edit Signature" tab.

To make a Signature Picture clickable:

First, you must upload a picture you would like to be displayed in your signature. Here's a screenshot:





Then, you can use the [sigpic] tags with URL tags wrapped around them, like this:

Code:
[url=the.url.of.the.page.you.want.to.be.linked][sigpic][/sigpic][/url]
Now, maybe you're thinking, "Hey, thanks for the tip, but I have more than one signature picture I want to link to a URL - how do I do that?" Well, here's how:

To make any picture clickable:

First, you must upload the image you want to be displayed to an image hosting site. I use imgur, for example.

Then, you must copy the URL of the image you uploaded. For Chrome, this would be [right click the image] > Copy image URL.

After copying the image URL, use this code to insert into any post or signature:

Code:
[url=the.url.of.the.page.you.want.to.be.linked][img]the.url.of.the.image.you.want.to.display[/img][/url]
Done! You have successfully linked a picture to a website/webpage by making it clickable.

Hopefully this post helps you all out a bit!

Regards,

Nookie
