Tutorial on How to Add a Custom Signature to Your Blog!

A Signature is a fun way to customize your blog and it is easier than you think!


Step #1:
You need to create your custom signature in the program of your choice, I use Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop. Make sure that when you save your signature, you save it as a png file with a transparent background. If this is a step that you can't do yourself, or don't want to do yourself, email me (carolynn@dforte.com), and I can design you a custom signature for your blog for only $10!

Step #2:
Create a Photobucket Account (www.photobucket.com)
Step #3:
Upload your Custom Signature.

Step #4:
Click on your signature.
Step #5:
A similar screen below should show up. Copy the HTML Code for your signature.

Step #6:
Return to your Blog and go to your Settings and Formatting Section.

Step #7:
Scroll to the bottom and you will see a Post Template section, in the box, paste the code that you got from photobucket. Then Save.

Step #8:
Go to Layout and Edit HTML.
Step #9:
Scroll down to where you see the below text, and change the border to 0px. Then Save your template.


And you are done!

Hi, I have recently fell in love with your blog. I am having a bit of trouble trying to MAKE a custom signature in my paint.net program. I still can't figure out this LAYERS thing. I can't seem to get rid of the white box and I don't see where I have the option to make it transparent. I have spent many hours of trying and googeling. Can you please help with an easy tutorial. That would be very helpful. Thanks.
