Tips & Tricks || How to Create a Comment Signature

So after wondering for ages how to make my own linked comment signature (the one where it leaves a direct link to your blog in the comment rather than having to type out your address) I decided to share it with you guys because a few people have asked me how to do them and I had a pretty hard time trying to find a tutorial so I thought I would do one myself!


So this is actually super easy all you need to do is use this HTML code:

Just a quick tip too make sure you leave a space in between the 'a' and 'href' as I have done above otherwise this will not work.











Above is a picture of my comment signature just incase you didn't know what I meant. You could also link to a recent or similar post if applicable to the blog post e.g. if someone posts a review of the Barry M Nail Paints you could link them your review to check out aswell.

This is a great way to promote your blog, in reference to the #bbloggers chat on Sunday! Because it means that if people want to take a look at your blog it is a lot easier than copying and pasting your URL into the search bar. All you need to do is put this code anywhere in the comment box, I usually put mine at the bottom of my comment.

I save my coding into a word document so that I can find it easily.
I would love to see all of your comment signatures so please comment below so that I can discover some new blogs too!

I hope this helps some of you!

Thanks for reading

    1. You're very welcome! hehhe, me too! Although I am so glad I found this :)

      haha it's okay ;) it varies from key board to key board as to where it is positioned but somewhere on your key board one of your keys should have a button that has this | on it, or it may have what looks like 2 vertical lines on top of each other and you press that, or on my keyboard I have to press shift and then that button :D Let me know if you need anymore help and when you find it :)

      Hehe looks like it is working! :) xo
