You might want to add a custom automatic signature below each of your blog posts. This would be more useful if you are running a Team Blog with multiple authors. You can use unique signatures for each author.The same can be done on a single author blog also :)

Adding Signature to Single Author / Multi Author Blogger Blogs

1. Create a Signature using Photoshop or some online Generators like My Live Signature

2. Upload this signature image to blogger.Once its uploaded hit preview and copy the image location(Note down the URL of the image).

3.Now Go to Layout > Edit HTML and Expand your Widget Templates

4.Now Find

<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

If you cant find it then try finding this one

<p class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-1'>

or this one

<data:post.body/>

a) If you are using a Single author blog, paste the following code below the code you found

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<img src='url_of_your_signature_image' style='border:0px;'/>
</b:if>

Code should be edited with your signature image URL

b) If you are on a Team Blog, paste the following code just below the code you found

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'>
<b:if cond='data:post.author == &quot;Author1Name&quot;'>
<img src='url_of_author1_signature_image' style='border:0px;'/>
</b:if>
<b:if cond='data:post.author == &quot;Author2Name&quot;'>
<img src='url_of_author2_signature_image' style='border:0px;'/>
</b:if>
</b:if>

If you have more number of authors, you can repeat the blocks accordingly(here i have mentioned 2 blocks[blue and brown] one for each of the two authors).Codes should be edited with the author names and the signature image  URLs.

If you want the Signature to appear on your Blog’s main page as well, then you will have to remove those 2 red lines of code.

5.Save your template and you should see the signature in action :)

  3. try placing it after<data:post.bpdy/>
    probably you will have 2 of them as you are using the old Automatic Post summary thing. So figure out where to place it.. Somewhere below the conditional tags would do..

  31. Aneesh, I have read and pasted and I can not get this to work. My friend and I share a blog and would love to add our signatures automatically. Right now, we just copy/paste the HTML code that was generated by MyLiveSignature as we add a post. Could you please explain this a bit more to someone who knows absolutely nothing about html code.

    Our blog is http://milesandus.blogspot.com/

    Thanks in advance!

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Mary - leave me your email via the Contact Form on this blog and i will send you the codes.. :).. if i post codes here in the comment form, it will automatically change the html posted in the comment and so the code wount work.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks for this, I actually did it a little different. At first I did it your way, but then I went and did it so that it was in the post each time I went to post something in my blog. I have a saying at the end of each of my blogs, which says "Until next time...", and I thought it would be cool to spice it up with that. :)

    Thanks!

    When creating Signatures at MyLiveSignature, opt for the Transparent background in the Wizard or else your signature will look bad with white on pink.

  53. I have an issue, when I first used this code with my 3rd party template it worked just fine. But now that I have switched over to one of Blogger's template the format is all messed up

    Example:

    'My Signature' Posted by my name at 2:50pm

    I want my name to be replaced with my signature not have them both.I have removed the code because I didn't want my blog post to be messed up.Can you help me?

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is excellent Aneesh, my only issue is how do I get the signature to only show on the post and not on the main page. When I do the jump break the signature still shows on the main page and the "read more" link shows up below the signature on the main page. I would rather not have the signature show on the main page. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

  58. In step "2." you put "upload this signature image to blogger", how do I do that?

    ReplyDelete
  59. @Kelly Maatman
    1.Save the signature image to your PC
    2.Create a draft post in blogger.
    3.Add the image(that you saved to your PC)
    4. Once it is uploaded, you will get the url(link) of the image(You can get this from the Edit HTML tab of the post Editor.Copy that url.

    Hope this explains :)

  63. Hi,
    when you say upload an image to Blogger do you mean add it to a server like Picasa and copy the URL? I know how to add an image to a Blogger post, but I can't see any way to upload an image by itself to the same location as my blog...

    ReplyDelete
  64. @Local Search News Blog - all images uploaded via blogger go into your picasa account. you can upload the image anywhere and get the direct link to the image.

  69. Hi Aneesh, can you help me out a bit?

    1. I tried following your advise on how to place the signature in the center, and it turns out ok. But when I changed center to right, the signature won't go to to the right. Is it possible to make it on the right-hand side?

    2. The other one is, do you know how to make the signature visible on previous posts as well?

    Appreciate your help, thanks!
