Updating a Profile Signature on TechNet

Updating my signature block on the TechNet forums wasn’t as easy as I imagined. In case you have the same problems, here’s how I did it! I logged onto the TechNet forums, clicked the My Profile link, and then clicked on Edit My Profile. After taking these steps I was surprised to find out that your profile signature is NOT listed with your profile on TechNet.

Edit My Profile Link

My next step was to go onto the TechNet forum page and click on the Quick Access link in order to expose the My Settings options (Green Arrow).

My Settings

Success! On this menu you can see your profile signature and update it accordingly. In my case, I wanted to add a link to my new book.

Remember to use native HTML code within this field.

My signature block looks like this in HTML code and the screenshot below shows how it now looks in the TechNet forums. Hope this helps!
