Signature for two users

  1. Hi! We are one admin and one editor writing and we want separate signatures inserted att the end of each post. I realize this might have to be coded, but how do I do?

    The blog I need help with is dreamofabetterlife.wordpress.com.

  2. Some themes are designed to display author bylines and some are not. See author byline and author profile displayed or not > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/08/15/author-displayed-or-not/

    In reference to those themes that do display author bylines there must be at least two authors who have both published a post in the blog for the author bylines to display.
    There's a single author workaround here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/01/03/wordpress-com-changes-bylines-for-authors/
    This may also be helpful http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/03/06/multi-author-wordpress-com-blogs/ as it contains a workaround ie. creating categories for author names.

  3. One other suggestion is for each of you to create a signature image file that you can insert at the the end of each of your posts. I know several people who do this.

  4. I checked and I found the author bylines for both of us, but that is not quite what I'm looking for. I've seen blogs with signatures; images that are probably coded in CSS or something.

    I'm using the Twenty Eleven theme and I'm thinking maybe the theme doesn't support coding in its free version. However that strikes me as odd because my girlfriend had a signature image coded in her free blog with the same theme some time ago.

  5. Have you added the other person as an official user of the blog ie. an Author?
    See here http://en.support.wordpress.com/adding-users/

  6. The Twenty Eleven theme has a type of signature feature built in. To use it, each person should log in and go to the Users > My Profile page in the blog dashboard and fill out the "About you" section.

    Not every theme has a signature option setup, but Twenty Eleven does, so it should work for you if you fill out the right fields in your profile.
