Osiris Signature Banner

Description

Automatically creates an image banner with the heading of the latest post, for use on web sites or as a signature in discussion forums.

The banner image is contstructed from a template image of any size, on top of which text with a user-selected typeface, color and placement is placed at each time a new post is published (or the latest post is updated).

With the use of the image banner as a forum signature you can provide a way of always advertising your latest post on the discussion forums you frequent. The plugin automatically provides bbCode and HTML appropriate for use as signature code for most discussion boards.

FAQ

Why is my text not showing?

If you are getting a signature image without text (completely black if you use the default template) it’s because of a bug in the positioning. Set “Right Position” to something that is not -1 (50 for example) to position the text inside the image. This is fixed in the next version that is coming soon.

Where can I get new fonts?

I downloaded the ones included in the plugin from http://www.dafont.com/. There are loads of sites that provide free fonts.
