Post signatures

One writer mentioned wanting a way to add a signature to blog posts automatically, as seen on public blogs like and

Right now you can do this by copy-and-pasting the same bit of text in each post, but I thought an automatic way of adding one could be interesting – it would save time, and let you update the signature anytime without going back through each post individually.

What do you think? Would you use this feature if we had it? Would you want to be able to include custom scripts or styles in your signatures, or just text?

Yes I definitely would. I would be thankful for just text, but having more options never hurts in my personal book.

Totally agree! :slight_smile:

I’d absolutely use this feature. Getting back into Go development for 2019 so if I get a chance I will attempt to implement on a fork.

Great to know! I’ve recently been thinking this feature would be a good fit for a plugin, when those are supported. If you’re interested in helping build that out instead of a fork, it’d be great to have your input on this thread.

I’m thinking about doing an event at the end of July that requires a post signature. They’re definitely useful for blogging challenges, or blogathons like I’m thinking about doing. Yeah I’ve copied and pasted text before. Namely when using Tumblr.

I’d definitely use the signature feature.
I was thinking to create a html with a link to an image hosted in another service to copy/paste but the signature makes it infinitely easier.


I may not use it all the time, but this will be a thing for me at the end of this month. I’m doing a blogging event that could possibly go 50 hours. I’ll need a signature at the end of each post, to remind people where to go to donate, and how to notify me afterwards.
I don’t particularly want to copy and paste the same bit of text 100 times over. However, if I have to, I will.
