Members' web sites

To see a list of members who have their own web page

1. Click on the "MEMBERS" tab right below the news item and above the path of the page you are looking at.
2. Click on the column header Website (4th column of the members list)

You should see a small white triangle right of the word Website. The members list is now sorted to show members with a web site on top. The little globes in the column are linked to Members' web sites

  • Click on your handle anywhere (mine is "Figleaf"), including in the list of members, or click the "profile" tag (5th from left in row that starts with "HOME")
  • Click on "Forum Profile Information", scroll down if necessary
  • Fill in the last two fields

To promote your web site in your signature, do the same thing with the field just above.
