Post Signature

If you are wanting a cute signature for the bottom of your posts here's a quick and easy tutorial on how to add one to your blog!
  • You will need an image that has your signature. I use Photoshop to create mine. I know there are other programs, such as Microsoft paint. You'll want the image to be about 100x50 pixels. The size can vary it's really up to you and what you want. You can also add a cute image like I did here!
  • Next you'll need to up load the image to the internet. You can do this by using Photobucket, Flickr, Picasa or you can do as I did, and put it in a post right here on blogger! You will need to copy the URL address of the image and paste it into the code below.
  • Now you will need to copy the following code:
<img src="INSERT IMAGE URL ADDRESS HERE"/style='border: none; background: transparent;'>
  • Now you will need to go into your layout page and click on Settings.

  • Once in Settings click on Formatting:
  • Scroll down to Post Template and paste the code from above in the box and click the Save Setting button.
(To enlarge images click on the pictures)

  • Enjoy your new post signature!
FYI: Your signature will not appear on previous posts. It will only appear on posts from this point on. There is away to add your signature to all your posts, however it's not quite as simple as this! If there's enough interest on how to permanently add a signature to all your posts I'll write up a tutorial on how to do so in the near future!

Hi Jen! Stopping by from Amy's blog to say hello. I'm following, cause I definitely could use as much help as possible with the blog! You've got lots of cute stuff...

Jen - this is so great. So, of course, I took the new signature you made me and set it up to automatically appear - you have saved me a couple of steps! Thank you. And, I love my button. I hope you will come by - today's post is a fun one and I would love for you to check out my GIVEAWAY! ~Kelly

Jen -
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I can't seem to get my signature to appear on my posts. I posted the picture on my blog and then got the code from you to put into the formatting. The text that I have to put into the html code where you say to "insert address here" is the "location" or the "address"? I've actually tried both and then saved it. Then, I've written a post to see if it worked and it didn't. Bummer.
I tried to paste the code I'm using here for you to look at, but it won't let me complete the message with it in this body. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks for your help.
-Kara

Thank you for posting this. I'm technically challenged so I won't try to do this, but I think this is great when people share their blog secrets on design. I love your signature btw.

Hi! I plan on making my own signature very soon. Thanks for the tutorial.

And as a heads up, Tamara over at Mad Boastings of a Cheapskate Mom is re-designing her blog and I gave her your blog address as a source for ideas and tutorials.

You never know, it may turn into a boost in traffic for you - she's got over 1,000 followers :)

Thanks so much for your tips, they are great.
One question tho.

When I start posting my "signature" is right at the top. I have to go to html and space down the signature before I can start typing my post.

Any way to fix that, so that i can start posting right from the rich text? without going into html first?

Alison said...

Just used your tutorial for the blog button - and am going to work on the signature next! Thank you! Thank you!
