This tutorial will explain how to create a blog signature that automatically attaches to the end of your post. Its very simple to do and will take under 5 minutes to make the needed changes to your blog. With all that said, thanks for reading this weeks Tecky Tuesday.

  • I had to scour the internet to find instructions on how to do this when I was remaking my blog, but all of the instructions I found were complicated and had me editing the html code. I wish I knew about this method back then!

  • Love this post! Very helpful :)

    Hi. Where is the posts and comments on the settings of tumblr? I don’t have that on my settings page.

    • Eric

      Sadly, I don’t think they’re checking this page anymore, and things have apparently changed.

      I can’t believe how complicated it is to post a stinking signature on tumblr.

  • nope

    Tumblr does not have a posts and comments option.
