Fixing your link to Facebook under your avatar

Post by TheGildedCat on Tue Apr 22, 2014 4:50 pm

Under your avatar (pic) you have the option to link to your webpage, facebook, twitter, etc, but a LOT of forum users have broken links, especially to their Facebook. Here's how to fix it (for most people).

Go to Edit your Profile:
http://www.facepaintforum.com/profile?mode=editprofile

Scroll down to Contact Fields
When you enter your facebook name, ONLY ENTER THE BOLDED PART BELOW
http://www.facebook.com/yourpagename

For example:
If my full link is http://www.facebook.com/thegildedcat I'd only enter: thegildedcat

The same thing goes for twitter, you should only enter your username.
The forum pre-populates the rest of the link for you, so what is happening is you're accidentally linking to:
http://www.facebook.com/www.facebook.com/thegildedcat <--no bueno

Fixed!
