How To Create And Add A Stylish Signature To Your Blogger Posts

Create Signature BloggerIf you look at the bottom of the posts in many blogs you will see they finish with a signature.I think the signature looks great and adds a bit of style to the posts.These signatures are very easy to create and add to your blog and in this post i will show you how.You can actually use a small pad to write you signature or pick from one of hundreds of pre-made signatures.I suggest using the pre-made signature, using the pad to create your actual signature is almost imposable.

This Post Has Been Updated On 8th June 2012.

Create the signature

I’m going to create another signature and walk you trough the steps as i do.

Step 1. Go to My Live Signature and click ‘Start Now’ you don’t need to register.

Step 2. You have 2 free options here, choose to use the wizard as i did or be brave and try to write one.

Write in your name as i did below :

Choose the font you want to use from the hundreds they have and click next as below :

Follow the steps to design the signature :

-You now choose the size i choose size 3.
-Select the color, i choose a transparent background.
-Choose the angle slant, I choose 2.

Now your signature is ready, click on ‘Want to use this signature?’ as below :


Now choose ‘Generate html code’ you will be provided with the code :

This is the code for my new signature :

<a href=”http://www.mylivesignature.com” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/48/010EAA2D956848A1728F82E9602766AD.png” style=”border: 0 !important; background: transparent;”/></a>

And this is the new signature :

If you know how to upload the image to Blogger or Photobucket or any image hosting you may want to do that, if not don’t worry we will use it as it is.

We only want the image and we don’t want the image to be a link back to My live signature so you can remove the code in blue and keep the code in yellow :
(If your not sure how just change www.mylivesignature.com to the address of your blog)

<a href=”http://www.mylivesignature.com” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54488/48/010EAA2D956848A1728F82E9602766AD.png” style=”border: 0 !important; background: transparent;”/></a>

 

Add the signature to your blog

There are two ways to add the signature to your blog the first way is the easiest but it wont be in you previous posts.The second way adds it directly to your template.

First way to add the signature to your blog.
.
Step 1. In the new Blogger dashboard click the drop down menu for your blog > Choose settings > On the left of the settings page choose ‘Posts And Comments’.

Step 2. At the top of the Page you will see ‘Post Template’ paste in the code and save:

Now every time you you go to write a post the signature will be already in the post.

Second way to add the signature to your blog.

Step 1. In Your (New Design) Blogger Dashboard Click The Drop Down Menu For Your Blog > Choose Template > Then Edit Html > Now Proceed > Tick The Expand Widget Templates Box as shown in the video Below :

Find the following code in your blogs html :
(Click ‘CTRL and F’ for a search bar to find the code)

<data:post.body/>

Paste the code for your signature Directly Below or After <data:post.body/>

Note : If <data:post.body/> is in your template twice place it after the second one.

  2. Thanks Tom,

    I have used it for as long as i can remember and it does add somthing unique to your blog.

    There is a way to upload your signature but (for me anyway) it wont be as cool.

    This is a great idea.
    Love it.
    I already have in my template formatting ‘Currently Reading:’ then I just add the latest book I’m reviewing to it. I assume that you can actually use the signature creator to make any kind of message, like ‘Follow Me’ and have it link back to your Twitter page etc.

    I bet there are many uses for this cool app.
    Thanks so much for the great info– as usual!
    And I really appreciate the directions and graphics on how to add stuff to your template for convenience. Awesome!

  4. Thanks so much T,

    I had a look at your blog and you definatly picked a signature that suits both you and the style of the blog, i bet you looked at every signature on the site 😀

    Im honored to be mentioned in your latest post, having an effect on people and helping them do somthing they otherwise wouldnt try is why i give so much time to this.

    It’s Great fun as well..

    Paul.

  5. Actually on your other point of using the signature in differant places i am going to write a post on using the signature maker to make a header for your blog.

    It would be such an easy way to make a cool header.

    I’m trying to add my signature the second way so that it’ll apply to my previous posts but when searching for the code in the htmls it says “search not found” and I’ve tried to look for it manually without result, what does this mean?

    Thanks in advance!

  36. Okay, the reason my name is Skerrymalas is because I have a Blog but it is about a National Geographic’s Game, Animal Jam. Skerrymalas is just my user. I’m STILL trying t get a signature and my Mom won’t help. She says I’m the computer wiz of the family. Gee, thanks! That helps a lot, mom. So.. whenever I copy and paste the signature just like you said, (you should be warned I’m not very good with directions) it just comes up with the HTML code on my post. ARRG! Help???

  44. Paul, what a great post! I look at other blogs and always wonder how they did certain things. I am new to blogging and was eager to try this and I had some success although my signature appears in the center at the bottom of the post and the last line of my post comes AFTER my signature. Any ideas how to fix?

  63. I had a thought a few days ago to add a signature on my blog post because it makes the post more believable.

    ReplyDelete

  64. This whole experience has me completley perplexed. There are so many things I want to do and spending 2 hours on creating a signature wasnt one of them. I think your instructions are correct, however, the website to make the signature has changed. Every time I would go to get the code, a new window would pop up and intercept this task! I am so annoyed. After trying 9 times, I am giving up, without getting a (expletive) signature 🙁

    ReplyDelete

  65. I am definitely impressed. My OWN signature …. well it sucks. And it’s quite lame LOL Thank you very much =D

  73. I’ve been asking and asking and nobody’s helped me yet..what if you have a background on your blog that is not white and the transparent graphic signiture is not displaying properly. It displays on the sidebar and not in the body of the blog. Help! Laura
    Ever since I’ve had blogs this has been a problem…..I’m working on another one..you can see what I mean here…thanks, Laura
