    Yesterday I was on and I was not logged in but I was reading a post from a username that I thought was autoblog or something like that and they had something in their signature about setting up autoblogs for 10.00/blog or something close to that and I cant find a way to track it down with the search tool. is there a way to search signatures?

    Using the forum search feature, I don't think so. But using Google search, you can try your luck. I don't know if signatures are indexed or not, but you can try searching for:

    Code:
    site:[SiteURL] [signature details]
    Type that in Google search, where [SiteURL] is BHW's site url and [signature details] is your search query for the signature. Good luck.

    I just searched on my own signature with:

    site:blackhatworld.com "thought I had made a mistake"
    and get:
    Your search - site:blackhatworld.com "thought I had made a mistake" - did not match any documents.

    Suggestions:

    • Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    • Try different keywords.
    • Try more general keywords.
    • Try fewer keywords.
    So it doesn't seem the signatures are including in indexing.

    HTH .... :cool2:

    Look around - every other member is advertising or selling or
    PM soliciting or have text links in their signatures without being donors.

    ya, I read all your reports. Some of them have BST thread. So they can have signatures. Some dont have, but trying to remove for them too.

    Thanks for your reports.

    Now that I have someone's attention could you please have someone address the thread:
    Signature advertising URLs

    There are a couple of different posts in that thread that need official clarity.

    Actually the Feedback forum is FULL of questions that need OFFICIAL answers.

    TIA .... :cool2:

    The rules have no exceptions for BST only that you MUST be a donor to have a link:

    5. SIGNATURES
    You must be a member of the forum for 30 days and have 50 quality posts before you will be allowed to use a signature on this forum. In order to use links or images in your signature, you need to be a Donor. You may post 2-3 affiliate links or 1 SMALL banner in your signature. Do not use a font size larger than 2, crazy fonts/colors, sound clips, excessive smileys, or anything else annoying. We reserve the right to change, delete or rearrange your signature as we see fit at any time.
