How To Add A Post Signature To Your Blog

About the plugin

The plugin is called WP Post Signature.

How To Add A Post Signature To Your Blog

How to download

  • Go to the Plugins tab on your left hand sidebar in WordPress.
  • Select “Add New”
  • Enter “WP Post Signature” in the search bar
  • The plugin we are looking for should be the very first one. Click on the “Install Now” button.
  • The plugin should download automatically.
  • Click on “Activate Plugin”
  • You should be redirected to your list of Plugins.

Creating a custom signature

  • Now it’s time to create your custom signature. It is so easy to do this in PicMonkey or Canva.
  • Try this image size – 250 pixels wide x 75 pixels high.
  • Make sure it has a Transparent background.
  • Note: In order to save an image with a transparent background, it must be saved as a .png (not .jpg). Make sure when you save it, you save as a .png.
  • Now, create your Signature, using whatever font you like in PicMonkey or Canva.
  • Save the image as a .png in a place you will be able to find it easily later on your computer.
  • Save your image to your Media Files in your blog.
  • Copy the File location link for the image.

Instructions to add your custom signature to the plugin

The final step in this process is to add your signature image to the plugin.

  • Go back to the lefthand sidebar in WordPress and select “Settings”.
  • Find “WP Post Signature” in the list.
  • Enter your HTML for your signature in the box.

Create the HTML like this:

<center><img src=”link to your image goes here” alt=”Signature” style=”border: 0px;width:250px;height:75px”></center>

If you don’t want it centered, delete <center> and </center>. Change the width and height (if necessary), and replace “link to your image goes here” with your image link.

    I always wondered how bloggers added their signature but wasn’t sure whether I would do it myself. Thanks for sharing, if I decide to add in the future, I know I can always refer back to your post.

    That’s such a cool tip! I’ve seen them in many posts, but figured it had to be way too difficult to do on my own. This seems simple!

    Great timing! I’ve been seeing all these blogs with signatures and thinking how cute it is. And this was on my “to do” list to check this out. I’ve used picmonkey and canva quite a bit (they’re lifesavers when you have a blog!) Will put this on my to-do list for the next week or two. Thanks!

    Hey dear, thanks a lot for your great tips. It is really important for all of us to insert ourselves into what we do, and that can partially also add to our signature next to other things you said 🙂

    I’m happy I read it all, thanks a lot 🙂
