How to insert newline in forum signature?

    Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm sure there must be a possibility to do what I want, but I can't find the right knob. Here are the steps I take.

     

    1. Click My Settings.

    2. In "Your Signature", I delete the old content and enter:

    Hugo Kornelis, SQL Server MVP
    My SQL Server blog: http://sqlblog.com/blogs/hugo_kornelis

    (Note that I use the return key between MVP and My).

    3. Click "Submit"

    4. Click "My Profile" again.

    5. Check the signature - the line break is gone, it now reads "Hugo Kornelis, SQL Server MVP My SQL Server blog: http://sqlblog.com/blogs/hugo_kornelis" (and that is also what appears under my posts).

    I am sure that there must be some way to insert line breaks in my signature - so if someone please tells me the trick, I'm a happy camper!

    Best, Hugo

  • Thanks, taylorparsons.

    I would have marked your reply as an answer, but I can't since you already did that yourself (which, in my opinion, is quite unpolite).

  • I am sorry you are correct it was rude.  I should have just proposed as answer.
