Simply follow the steps to create an image of your signature
Displaying Signature In a Post
The method you use to display your signature really depends on your theme.
Options: You can use:
- php code to add your signature
- or a hook plugin to do the same thing
Upload your signature image file to your server via your WordPress media library.
Child Theme Functions.php Code
Grab the url to your image and replace the url to your image before pasting the code into your child theme’s functions.php file
If you haven’t created a child theme for customization’s made to your parent theme, i suggest you do. Otherwise your custom functions will be overwritten when you update your parent theme.
Using Hooks To Display Signature
If you’re not using a Studiopress theme, you can use a hook plugin.
Simply insert your image into your WordPress editor and copy the HTML code for pasting into the location you wish to display it using a hook plugin.
Thank you, this is the info I needed to add a signature!
Would you happen to know if going the route of adding to functions file how do I get the signature to display above the JJetpack social icons? Right now the Jetpack sharing buttons are the 1st thing after the post followed by the signature. I know the 1 in the code should make the sig take priority but it’s not?
Brad Dalton says
There’s no other hook before that one and 1 is the highest priority so you will need to reposition the Jetpack buttons after the signature.
I just updated the code so try it as the old code was messed up.
Here’s the code which repositions Jetpack buttons.
