    Talking

    No! Sorry!

    I always wondered for years why it was disabled. Then I was chatting with someone who was on the forum long before me, and he told me why. While I won't get into specifics or naming of names, let just say a competitor of LRO was using it for unscrupulous reasons I don't blame Byron or Paula for doing this and am just happy they give us this place to chat. Just ask for someone's email it, or better yet put your e-mail in the question for those that will answer you, just not out in front of everyone

    Lightbulb Html-email format for signature

    b_vanfossen,
    May I suggest you add this <html> to your signature by using the User CP(?).

    It will keep your email address hidden from web-scanning software; but, allow others to open your email address up in their default email program. They can view it by right-clicking and copying email as well.

    Hope this helps.

    1. Just change the homer@example.com to your email address and
    2. you can change the subject to whatever you want.
    3. The "Email Me" text is what will show up in your actual signature and not your email. So; you can change this to whatever you want as well.

    <a href="mailto:homer@example.com?subject=LRO Forum Message">Email Me</a>
    -------------------------------------------
    Revised: 5/13/14
    *USE: Just remove the (") from the format below.
    ["email=homer@example.com]mail me[/email"]

    I tried this and when i preview my signature and click on the "email me" link it brings up the LRO homepage. am I missing something?

    Madiison,
    thanks for your input but it will not work on this forum due to the fact that html is turned off. Though BB code is permitted. After googling a html to bb code converter I found that if you replace the <a href and the <a/> with [url= and [/url] then it it works just fine and dandy. Tight lines everyone!

    [u...rl=mailto:homer@example.com?subject=LRO Forum Message]Email Me[/url]
    remove the ... in url and it works

    Sounds like you gentlemen fixed it yourself. Good Job! Kris, just be sure to change the html to your actual email address. You can use this simple code to refer to a webpage or facebook page as well-just remove the mailto syntax. Glad you guys troubleshot this issue and shared the results.

    *Do not put your exact email in your signature-use the code above to hide it from web programs. There are many mischievous hackers that scan the internet for email syntax and then try to hack your account.
