@Odd Duck, if you carefully select the existing text per entry, you can hit the link icon to edit or replace.

Talk to me like I’m 5 when it comes to tech.  I don’t know what you mean.

Great tip! My side by side journal has gotten pretty long, so this helps me as well as readers and followers.

@Odd Duck, here are screenshots of editing my signature, specifically the Aquariums link.

Selecting text:

After hitting the link icon:

I’m still missing a step, here.  I don’t understand how to edit the link.  I get how to copy the link to get it into the signature, but I’ve not been able to figure out how to edit a link, I’ve only replaced it when I needed to change it.  So I’m not figuring out how to edit the existing link nor what to do to make it work like this so it goes to the “new” part of the thread.  Explain like I’m 3.  😆 🤷🏻‍♀️

Hi @Odd Duck I just did this. I went to "Account Settings" in the drop down menu when you click on your icon in the upper right corner. Then, click on "Signature" on the left side. Now, click on one of your links, and the URL link will appear. You want to find the nearest slash "/" and immediately afterward, enter:

?do=getNewComment

Then be sure you "Save" to update your signature.

So, for example, right now if I move overtop of your signature link "100 G Angelfish Habitat Tank" the following URL is indicated in the lower lefthand corner:1032337047_ScreenShot2022-05-25at2_38_02PM.png.e03ca409bc4172bdb258d4c16f256f6e.png

What you want to do is edit this signature from its present link . . .

https://forum.aquariumcoop.com/topic/19775-angelfish-biotope-ish-tank/

to this . . .

https://forum.aquariumcoop.com/topic/19775-angelfish-biotope-ish-tank/?do=getNewComment

This lets anyone who clicks on your link to read the newest posts.

Here's a "how to" video for editing signature links to go to the most recent updates...

 

Thank you for that!  Sometimes I need extra tutorials for tech stuff!  What can I say, the old lady comes out in me sometimes!  😉 😂 🤣
