    I’m trying to insert my signature that I made from a free signature website (http://aatr.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/jaclyn-signature7.png). I have been inserting it just like I do pictures but would like to do it another way so it does not show the picture border. As well, how do I keep the signature there on a new post automatically (instead of inserting it each time)? I’m not familiar with the whole HTML thing and would like to use the “visual” access. Any help?

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

    Really? Because I have seen signatures that do not look as though they are. Example: if you were to take a look at my blog you will see a picture border around the most recent 2 posts, however before those (another woman who was in charge of the blog before me) there is no border and it is not inserted as image it seems…

    Okay then, can you explain how to remove the borders around the signature then?

    No you have not seen a signature on a wordpress.com blog that was not posted as a signature. The theme you are using makes the fact you signature is an image apparent. There are other wordpress.com themes you could choose to use where the fact the signature is an image will not be apparent. However, this does not change the fact that the only way to post a signature is as an image.

    How are the previous posts from the other woman before me on the blog not showing a border on her signature then? She used the same theme and as you say, must have inserted it as an image so I’m wondering why it appears different on the blog itself.

    There is no way to have an automatic signature on each post at wordpress.COM. You have to do it manually. To get rid of the border, you have to add

    style="border:none;" to the image HTML such as this:

    <img style="border:none;" src="URL_OF_IMAGE" alt="" />

    Hmm… I’m not sure why it is not working. Here is what I have:

    <p style=”text-align: right;”><img class=”alignright size-full wp-image-866″ style=”border:none;” title=”Jaclyn Signature” src=”http://aatr.wordpress.com/files/2009/12/jaclyn-signature5.png” alt=”” width=”115″ height=”63″ /></p>

    Am I missing something? I substituted what you said…

    I use such an image as my signature on my blog. Just as another note.. when making the image… use the same colour background on the image as your blog post… so it blends. Editing the CSS may be necessary to remove the border surrounding the image if your theme normally gives borders to images. Then just copy and paste the html coding to the end of each post where you would like the signature to appear.

    It must be said: Signatures are for forums, not blogs. On Blogs they look dead tacky and noobish. it’s your blog, everyone is supposed to know who you are and if they don’t, it usually says “Posted by so-and-so”

    That said…

    She has:

    <p><a href="http://www.mylivesignature.com" target="_blank"><img class="alignright" style="border: medium none ; background: transparent none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: -moz-initial; -moz-background-origin: -moz-initial; -moz-background-inline-policy: -moz-initial;" src="http://signatures.mylivesignature.com/54486/250/1AE192FF46E8BE67C1979BB096684F1A.png" alt=""></a></p>

    You need to reconfigure your code to exactly that, subbing in your image file for hers.

    @aatrweddings, since you had not provided a link to your blog, I could not see what theme you were using.

    With Mistylook, those borders are built into the CSS, and it would require the CSS upgrade and CSS editing experience to remove them.

    When I posted above I should have inserted “Misty Look” and then you would have immediately twigged to the problem. *** head desk ***

    “The theme you are using Misty Look makes the fact your signature is an image apparent. There are other wordpress.com themes you could choose to use where the fact the signature is an image will not be apparent.”

    Great news! The difference in appearance between the other images and the signature is dramatic. Bookmarking for sure.
