    I can add a link to an MSE thread my signature with no error message.

    I don't actually have a diary so just tested it with a link to a thread in the DFW section.

    When you are editing your signature in the bit above where you can change colour or size of text there is what looks like a picture of the earth with a chain link. Click on that and a box appears that you put your diary link in. It worked for me.

    This is the message I get when I try to put my link into the signature :o

    The following errors occurred with your submission:

    Unfortunately due to misuse in the past we can't allow links in signatures (live or inactive)

    Wish a forum member could help. I have emailed them but no luck....

    Copy and paste this into your sig:

    {URL=""}My debt free diary{/URL}

    Replace all { and } with /B] and [B (I had to use a different bracket otherwise the code would 'work' and you wouldn't see what to type!)

    Replace with the link to your thread (keeping the quotation marks)

    Replace My debt free diary with whatever text you want to be shown in the signature to be clicked on.

    End result in preview/saved mode should look like this:
