Signature Plugin for WordPress

Recently, I upgraded my WordPress Blogs to the latest version 2.3. At the same time I thought it might be nice to add my signature to some of my posts. I was checking the list of plugins that work with WP version 2.3 and found Signature Plugin for WordPress by Dagon Design

This plugin lets you display a custom signature at the bottom of your posts. Simply type the text you want in the options page and configure it to display on every post, or manually display it by adding the trigger text wherever you like. You can also add in author information using the included variables – login name, first name, last name, nickname, email address, website, and description/bio. It get this information from the author’s account settings. It currently supports up to three different signature templates.

Download and Install the Signature Plugin

I downloaded the signature plugin script from the Dragon Design website and uploaded it to the plugin folder.
ftp://your-domain-name.com/wp-content/plugins/
Make sure when you are uploading with your ftp program, you change the transfer File Type to ASCII. Once uploaded, you will need to activate the plugin before it will work.

Useage

You can use HTML and CSS in your signatures so I created a graphic image using a font I liked. I added some text and a link to my main website Genealogy Web Creations and created a style to reduce the size of the font. The script can be customized and can automatically insert your signature or you can do it manually. I chose to manually insert my signature by inserting the code.

<!-- ddsig -->

Full instructions are available at Dragon Design for customizing the signature plugin.

  1. Wow! Thanks Pat.

    I don’t know why I never thought of being able to do this. But it is definitely needed for bloggers.

    Your site is one of the tabs that open as my startup pages. Great job.

  2. That seems to be a very nice plugin but can we set up different signature for each post we do?

  3. Yes, the plugin allows you to set up three separate signatures.
