- Profile names & hyperlinks
on some peoples profile name it seems to link them to the user info page;
totally random example – for jon1973 it links to
but on a few there seems to be a link to an external website. How do you do this? It seems more than just adding your website url to the website box in your profile. Any ideas?Posted 6 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
Just a guess but based on nbt’s changes I reckon:
• if you haven’t filled in any public profile details at all then your name doesn’t get linked.
• if you only fill in a website and nothing else then your name is a link to that website.
• if you fill in a website and other details then your name is a link to your profile (which lists those other details and the website).
Which would all make sense, but not be terribly intuitive.Posted 6 years agopatricksingletrackMember
Right – I’ve looked into it. Seems like this facility was being abused quite a bit in the past so It was disabled. We didn’t remove the existing innocent URLs, hence the discrepancy.
Users can still access your personal website by viewing your profile and this way the target url is clearly visible before it’s clicked.
Hope that makes sense.Posted 6 years ago
