Linking Lodestone Profile to ZAM Sig BannersFollow

Would it be possible to make it so when you click the banner it takes you to the persons character page?

I know I can just as easily hotlink my own page into my sig line, but it would still be something nice if it weren't too difficult to do.

The reason I'm wondering is because it makes it easy to see people accomplishments and also what rank their other jobs may be. It would mostly assist in answering craft questions where it's beneficial to have multiple crafts at rank X, but the person mayb has all DoW and DoL classes really high so their DoH classes don't show on the banner...

Without the underscores and with your own numerical values.

Get your forum sig from here and search for your character on Lodestone here.

I just went and did what you suggest:
I added [ link ] tags around my [ ffxivsig ] tags [ /link ] in my forum signature and now when I mouse over my banner, it shows the URL and links to my character page. Nifty!

It definitely works, great idea. I'm going to change mine to do this as well.

Great idea, rate up.

And in case anyone is having trouble, your forum signature should look like this:

[_link=http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/rc/character/status?cicuid=3817267_][_ffxivsig_]381309[_/ffxivsig_][_/link_]

Without the underscores and with your own numerical values.

Awesome, I figured that might be the way to do it but I didn't get a chance to try it until now. Not that I would have done it correctly ^.^

I edited the two most important replys into my OP so it should help folks in the future.
