Reviews

Easy to setup; a breeze to use

This plugin is super easy to setup and use; it provides an additional widget in your WordPress dashboard to easily add your signature image. Sure, you can add your signature image code directly to your functions.php file (Anita shows you how to do this on her site), but the beauty of using a lightweight plugin such as this is that you don’t have to worry about losing any updates if you change your child theme.

Great plugin! Highly recommended.

So easy to use!

This plug in works very efficiently. As someone who doesn’t work in web design all the time, I found it easy to understand and use. Within minutes I had my signature graphic at the end of each blog post!
