How to: Create a signature (& some guidelines)

Notice the section at the bottom of this post with my name & job role:

That's my community signature. It shows up below each of my community posts. One neat thing about signatures is that when they're updated, they update across all of your posts. 

 

 

How do I get a signature?

You can easily set up your own community signature.

  1. Click on your name in the upper right, then "My Settings"
  2. From the My Settings page: Personal > Personal Information 
  3. Fill in the Signature field and click Save. image.png
  4. Go check out one of the posts you've made and you'll see your signature at the bottom. 

 

 

What should / shouldn't be in my signature?

Feel free to add your name, a link to your company and/or social links, and a small bit of personal or professional information. You can also politely request kudos. Any other links or text must respect our community guidelines and should not be used as advertisement. Feel free to reach out to me (via this thread or private message) if you need further clarification.

 

You can also use simple HTML tags (a, strong, br, span/div w/ a "class" attribute, etc); users at "Here to help" status or above get a bit more freedom with HTML tags/attributes. 

 

 

I want a signature that looks just like yours! 

I'm flattered! Here's the code (obviously, use your own name, role, and social link).

Kind of a big deal

@CarolineS

 

Being an arachnophobe, I copied your signature text and discovered that I could not save 

 

style="display:inline;"

what am I missing?

Hi @Uberseehandel -

 

Yah, non-admins aren't allowed to use "style" attributes - unfortunately, I can't lift this restriction. I am hoping someone more clever than me can figure out how to make the twitter icon display on the same line.

 

But, in the meantime - I'll update the example code to something that actually works!

 

Cheers!

Hi @Bleeps77 and @ASA-FTD -

 

Thanks for the report of not being able to see your signature! We have adjusted the community permissions so you will be able to view and update your signature now. Please let me know (a response on this thread is fine) if you have any further issues with this.

 

Cheers!
