Requesting a favor and current stuff here in the Tea House


Grizabella

646 views

Usually we have a snowfall or two in February up here where I live but this year we're having snow clear into March.  It's not so bad because we didn't get power outages.  I don't mind snow but hate if the power goes out.  Just the amount of snow we're having this year is kind of enjoyable.  Of course, that's because I don't have to go out in it.  lol

 

First, a request for a little help:

 

Would someone here try the link in my signature to see if it takes you to my website?  I can't remember how to make a nice url that only includes the name of the site to click on so if anyone knows how to do that, I'd appreciate it so much if you could message me and let me know again how it's done. I think someone once said the way I did the url in this signature won't work, so I want to get it right if I can.  Little Fang made me a beautiful banner that works using the link, but I just don't know if it will work for anyone but me as is.  No need to actually explore the website (which is undergoing a little spiffing up).  I just want to know if the url takes you there and how to make a tidy clickable url out of it in my  signature.  

 

OK now on to what's going on up here in the mist at the Tea House:

 

Tonight it's below freezing and it's snowing again.  The past several days have brought snow at night once the sun sets.  We had quite a bit at first but more recently, it's just been snowing at night. During the day some of it melts off, but that turns to ice at night on the roads. I have a nice little electric heater that looks like a real fireplace burning so that makes for a really cozy atmosphere.  I've got a scented candle lit to add to the snug feeling.  My little "tea house" is small, but it's cozy and I really don't need a lot of room.  

 

At the moment, I'm catching up on the news from Ukraine.  It breaks my heart what's been going on there for the last year. My most-used watercolor paints come from there and I emailed them awhile back to ask how they're doing. They're able to still make paints, which I'm relieved to hear.  I just hate the absolute destruction Russia is raining down on them.   War is always tragic and ugly but especially so since Putin is purposely killing civilians and just being vicious.  I'm not political but I do hope this will soon end.  

 

Aside from that, I've got my little portable easel, brushes and paints all set out ready to create something tomorrow.  I'll be starting on the Queen of Pentacles painting mentioned in another thread.  I already have it planned.  I've got Japanese gansai paints arriving via UPS  tomorrow and I'll probably use those. I've also got Korean paints ready to paint with.  I'm still trying to get to grips with the Korean paints, but I think I'll like gansai better.  

 

Yesterday I went to Oakridge on an errand and saw some daffodils already up and with beautiful buds on the verge of blooming.  Spring must be ready to be "sprung" for this year.  I'm not totally excited about it because the past two summers we've been on alert to have to evacuate because of nearby forest fires and I don't like that, but maybe this year we'll have a reprieve.

I managed to get the link fixed in my signature. Thanks Daniel!  I'd really like to do the banner but I don't have it  so I'll have to  just leave the link that's there now.  I'll see if Little Fang will give me one I can use.

I got it working!  Little Fang was gracious enough to help me so thanks to her and to Daniel, now my banner link in my signature works!  I'm thrilled and very grateful.

 

My daughter just told me that I'll be getting more reliable internet sometime soon, too, so even though Amazon didn't deliver my long-anticipated gansai paints, it's still been a good and satisfying day.  Amazon did send me an email saying "sorry your package is delayed, but it will be there tomorrow.  Guess that has to suffice.  I also go a little work done on my website.

I'm so glad, too!  I think it's really wonderful.  There are many functions of this forum I've never learned how to use, but everyone here is patient and helpful and I'm slowly but surely learning.

The link is in my signature on the banner.  Just click the banner and it takes you there.  🙂

I'm still not seeing it.  I'm using my phone so I suspect this is why

You can't see signatures in the blogs area. Have a look at Griz's posts in the main forum area 😊

 

An example...

Thank you. I'd never have thought of looking in a post so I've seen it now.

Hi, just to confirm you want help making a link in text form? o.o Feel free to dm me for help, but here is an example:

 

Tarot Forum

 

Is this what you need help with? If so, you just gotta click the "link icon", its next to the quotes icon, then type your URL and then below the box that says "Link Text" put the neat work there. 😄 

 

If I misunderstood the question ^^; pls do let me know but I'd be happy to help with link testing to editing stuff.

You can also your a spacer line like this:

But I don't know if you can code it in a signature, I'm just doing it per post.

I just tested the signature, it says links cannot be added. This may be different if you have a subscription o.o but the text box has the same setup as a comment box so just adding the link and adjusting the text area should work if that's the case.

She sorted it out and had a banner linking to her site now in the sig 🥰

Yes you can only save a link (rather than text) in a sig if you are a subscriber

 

Thanks for helping with it @Leila_al_Tolkien :thumbsup:
