I've tried in both my profile and the commission info using the [ url=whatever.com ] text [ /url ] BBC code to see how it would look. The code itself works, but for some reason adds the Weasyl site's url to whatever URL you specified. You can see it on my page in my profile where it says "testing for possible url tag?" and in the commissions area where it just says "test". https://www.weasyl.com/profile/spelunkersal

I used google to test, but yeah, it leads to https://www.weasyl.com/www.google.com rather than just www.google.com, like I typed in, in both profile and commission areas. Haven't tried it elsewhere yet.

Also, is there a quick reference of all the site's BBC codes for easy reference somewhere?

For a non-relative URL you must use http:// or https:// at the beginning of the URL.

[ url=http://www.google.com ]Google[ /url ]

We are working on a proper Help page for BBCode, but in the meantime you may refer to https://www.weasyl.com/journal/4
