    Congratulations, rookie101! You did it! Well, almost. You got the image from GreenHybrid.com, but you didn't set up the link from the image to your data there.

    Now, in the spirit of PriusChat, are you going to tell the other rookies how you did it, what your problems were, and how you solved them by using the right HTML/BBCode?

    Bill,

    I think I figured out how to get the picture/link thing to work:

    1. Copy and paste the code you posted in the other message into your "edit signature" box...

    [URL ="http://greenhybrid.com/compare/mileage/car/userID.html"]
    [​IMG]
    [/url]

    2. Now, right below it, type out exactly what you pasted in (with no spaces or returns, it will change lines on you by itself as you type but don't worry), substituting your car number for 'userID'. Apparently there are carriage returns or something hidden that you can't delete when you simply copy.

    3. After typing the complete code, delete the portion you copied.

    4. Voila! Pic w/ link!

    Almost...

    Put
    [URL ="http://greenhybrid.com/compare/mileage/car/7274.html"]
    [IMG ]http://greenhybrid.com/compare/mileage/car/7274/signature.png[/ IMG]
    [/ URL]
    in your signature and take out all the spaces and returns. Now you're just displaying the picture without the link (the part after [URL = above.

    Here's my post in the other GreenHybrid sig thread.
