At the request of Audrey at My Tiny Truths blog, here's how you make a simple change to add a signature or scrap a signature to be automatically included in every post. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Step 1 – Create your signature
Scrap a signature with whatever dimensions you choose. I scrapped mine at 700 x 177 pixels and 300 dpi. This is extremely large so, when you use the code, you must resize to a smaller unit WITHIN THE CODE itself. This is definitely best if saved as a PNG (transparent to allow your beautiful background to show through ;o)
Step 2 – Upload your image
Upload your image to your favorite photo hosting site and get the direct link. Save the link.
Step 3 – Format your post
Go to CUSTOMIZE/SETTINGS/FORMAT and scroll down to the bottom where you will see POST TEMPLATE. Here you can add just text or you can add your scrapped image.
Paste the following code in the POST TEMPLATE, making sure to ADD your direct image link, AND making sure to use your dimensions (or reduced dimensions) where the code says WIDTH and HEIGHT. You can also choose LEFT, CENTER, OR RIGHT. Most signatures are left so I chose that as my sample.
<img style="FLOAT: left; MARGIN: 0px 10px 10px 0px; WIDTH: 300px; CURSOR: hand; HEIGHT: 76px" alt="" src="DIRECT IMAGE HERE" border="0"/>
Step 4 – Save Settings
Save your settings and view your blog. The <div><div> part of the code is to give you the space you need to begin typing your post. The signature will move down as you type.
Step 5 – Practice
Write a new post with your new signature, and please be sure to write and INCLUDE your BLOG ADDRESS so we can all celebrate your success with you!
