How to format email signature

Can anyone provide a link to information on how to format my email signature? Nothing comes up in "search". Most of the HTML I've tried to use is rejected on "submit".

That isn’t exactly an “email signature” - it is more like a a saying or words at the end of any post you make on this board.  

 

You put your signature in the block provided in your Personal Information  area; it has to be short - not too much room actually shows.

 

Accept it - then go to Perfences and turn it on by checking the show signature area.  Then Accept it.

 

You see mine at the bottom of this post?  

 

The problem is that when you post you have to use a few spaces at the end of the post so that the signature shows up as it is suppose to - otherwise it is indistinguishable from the body of your post.  

 

I am putting in (3) spaces so you can see mine - it makes sense if you look at my picture avatar.  You know Gilda right?  It is always something.

 

Whoops forgot to turn it on - let me try again.  There it is at the bottom

Hi @DirkB349973 

For starters, I'll state my assumptions.  1) Since you've tried HTML I assume you are accessing your email through the provider's web interface rather than an email client like Outlook, Thunderbird, or EM/Client.  2)  Gmail is so popular I'll assume you're using Gmail.

1) Sign in to your email provider.

2) Locate the "Settings" button.  In Gmail it looks like a Gear or Sprocket and it is at the top of the screen.  (If you hover your cursor over it it'll say "Settings"). 

3) Click the Settings button.

Note - In Gmail this will only show you a short list of settings.

4) There should be another button at the top of the short list of settings that says "All Settings" or "More Settings".  Click that button to display a complete list of Gmail Settings.

5) The "Signature" setting is near the bottom of the list, and will let you set up a rudimentary Signature.

Hope this helps.

My apologies @EricC28201. I didn't explain that I wanted to format a signature using the AARP Community forum software. This is where I need to provide some formatting commands.

Thank you @GailL1! It was your "Roseanna" quote that prompted me to pursue this. I appreciate the info. 🙂
