    Add Signature Plugin for WordPress

    July 23, 2006 – Version 1.0

    This plugin lets you display a custom signature at the bottom of your posts. Simply type the text you want in the options page and configure it to display on every post, or manually display it by adding the trigger text wherever you like. You can also add in author information using the included variables – login name, first name, last name, nickname, email address, website, and description/bio. It get this information from the author’s account settings.

    Enjoy 🙂



    This is the text that will be shown. HTML is allowed, and you can also use CSS to give it a custom look. You can also use the following variables to display author information (they are case-sensitive):

    %LOGIN% – Login name
    %FIRST% – First name
    %LAST% – Last name
    %NICK% – Nickname
    %EMAIL% – Email address
    %URL% – Website
    %DESC% – Description/Bio

    Display on all posts

    If disabled, you can manually add the signature by adding the trigger text somewhere in the post:

    <!-- ddsig -->

    The signature will display wherever you place this trigger. Using the trigger overrides the ‘all posts’ option for that post, meaning you can have the signature display at the bottom of all posts, except ones you manually tell otherwise.

    Great idea for a site with multiple authors, for sure…

    Is there a way to use images with this?



    Sure, you could add something like this to the signature:

    <img src=”/authors/%NICK%.jpg” />

    Then just create an ‘authors’ directory with an image of each author in it, with their nickname for the filename 🙂

    (I just added the same info to the article in case anyone else asked the same thing)



    Great work, Aleister! 😀



    Version 1.1 has been released!

    It allows you to specify where the signature will show up – the index, static pages, and/or posts.

    Great! Can I also use WordPress tags in it? Like
    <?php the_time(); ?>

    Great plugin i like this. One thing i would like to see if possible is for the nickname to show like you sign your signature on a letter written not printed. can this be done?

    Makki, I think this can be done by putting the signature in a jpg image and follow the instructions from Aleister in his reply from 2006-07-23.

    great plug-in! and the use of images as a signature creates a nice personal touch to a blog.


    Does it work inside of RSS feeds?
