    Fun fact website Wednesday poll. So many people view the site using their smartphones, I thought it might be fun to share a little tip. Have you ever noticed when holding the phone "normally" (in portrait mode) you don't see member's signature blocks? Well if you turn the phone sideways (landscape mode) the signature block appears, including any links they may have to their build threads, etc. So if someone ever says "click the link below" and you don't see the link, try turning your phone sideways.

    Note: This is when viewing the site on a web browser or the mobile version of the site. I don't believe this works when using Tapatalk or the R2R app.

    I didn't know for a couple years. Lol. I did know you could turn sideways to view post #'s, but never was sideways long enough to notice the sig blocks.

    I dont know how anyone is able to read forums on their phone; I have good vision but it drives me wonky for some reason.

    If you turn your phone you can also see the "Buy Now" button on for sale threads!

    Paul, I think it's time for an upgrade. I believe the Relic Version 2.0 has been released. :p

    Ok... well that's pretty cool. But, how did you get your build thread to be a title with link, ie: "120g peninsula build", rather than looking like mine... which is a "http://xxxxxxx" type link?

    Use bbcode in your signature:
    [.url=http://full-link-to-your-build.com/] name-you-want-to-be-displayed[./url]

    (remove . (dot) from url brackets)
