Automated post signature in WordPress

Recently I noticed that my colleague, Steve Todd, has adopted a consistent signature to his blog posts. This seems like a good idea, especially as one who’s been “syndicated” elsewhere without my approval.

While he’s a TypePad guy, I favor WordPress. Fortunately, WordPress has rich plugin ecosystem, and there are already plugins that support automated signatures.

Although not yet listed in the codex, I adopted DDAddSig for my needs.

Once I activated the plugin, I simply went to my WordPress dashboard Settings | DDAddSig panel, edited my Primary Signature and checked the Usage box “Display on posts.” Voilà! :-)
