  • I have an HTML file to add as a signature and the tool just shows "--". So it doesn't work with files :(
  • It does what I want. Many thanks to the author!
  • So far I love this addon. It does exactly what I need.

    For anyone wanting to add hyperlinks to their signature do the following...

    1. Open any HTML editor
    2. Create your signature
    3. For things like your email address, linkedin address, twitter, etc... highlight each and find the "insert link" option on your HTML editor. Insert the appropriate link for each address.
    4. Now find the option on your editor to view the HTML source code for the signature.
    5. Copy/paste that as your signature for Thunderbird.
  • It only add's --...

    Have it have a list of signatures to choose from.
  • Dieses Add-on fügt lediglich Text aus dem Feld Signaturtext in den Konto-Einstellungen ein.
    Verwendet man vorgefertigte Signaturen aus externen Dateien, funktioniert dieses Add-on nicht.
    Schade, wäre sonst ein tolles Tool.
  • Ich komme von Eudora, wo das einmalige Einfügen einer Signatur unter einer beliebigen Absender-Adresse kinderleicht war. Auch die Erfassung war spielend zu bewerkstelligen. Insofern bin ich Ihnen dankbar, dass Sie ein entsprechendes Add-on entwickelt haben.

    Jedoch: Die Funktion "Extras/Konto-Einstellungen" ist unter Thunderbird 45.4.0 nicht vorhanden. Zudem: Wer über keine html-Kenntnisse verfügt, kann keine Signaturen verfassen - selbst dann, wenn er weiss, wo sich die entsprechende Funktion verbirgt.

    Eine Überarbeitung der Anleitung wäre angezeigt.

    Developer response

    Extras/Konto-Einstellungen gibt es auch in TB 45.4.0 und später - lediglich Linux Nutzer müssen unter Bearbeiten/Konto-Einstellungen danach suchen...

    Warum das so ist und welchen Sinn das machen soll fragen sich vermutlich alle Linux Thunderbird User schon seit Jahren - dran geändert hat sich leider nichts.

    HTML Kenntnisse braucht man zum erstellen einer Signatur im Thunderbird halt mal, daran soll und will dieses Plugin auch nichts ändern - daher sollten die Sterne eigentlich an ganz anderer Stelle zum Abzug gebracht werden! ;-)
  • Einfach und effizient, funktionnert wie beschrieben. Bestens!
  • It works for me. Unfortunately it still inserts the 2 dashes even though it is disabled in the config.
  • This the way how I made it work:
    1. go to the account settings
    2. edit the signature text and put the HTML line break tag
    at the end of each line
    3. check the "Use HTML" box
    4. check the "attach a signature from a file instead" box
    The above setting is odd but it works. I bet that you will enjoy it like I do.
  • Would be a very useful extension to TB, but unfortunatelly, nothing is inserted, when the signature setting uses a signature from a file.
  • The add on works great. Just there no instructions on how to create the signature. Would have been nice as writing code/html/etc is out of my league.
  • Great Job. Many thanks. Just what we need. Should be part of Thunderbird client.
  • Simple, useful and nice add-on. But I have a problem with HTML mails using plain text signature.
    I have added a few lines of code to your add-on to prevent that problem, and I will give you those lines with pleasure. Are you interested?

    Developer response

    Yes I am interested, please :-)
  • Macht genau das, was es soll. DANKE! :D
  • The add-on works only with signatures defined in the signature field of your account, which is too bad.
    I managed to override the problem by copying the content of my file-sig in the thunderbird-integrated signature field, but that's not a pretty solution IMHO.

    Please, add file-sig support, that'd be great.

    Developer response

    You can't use a file-signature! If you add your signature into the signature-field it will work...
  • Ich brauche nur bei 1% meiner zahlreichen Mails eine Signatur, daher ist das genau das, was ich brauche.

    Verbesserungsvorschläge:
    1. Zeilenumbrüche respektieren:Bei mir werden die 6 Zeilen der Sig. einfach aneinander geklebt. Liegt evtl. daran, dass ich "Nachrichten im HTML-Format verfassen" an habe.(umständliche) Abhilfe: br (in spitzen Klammern) einfügen
    2. Das Feld "HTML verwenden" (Konten-Einstellungen, rechts neben "Signaturtext") respektieren:bei mir wird das immer als gesetzt betrachtet
    3. klarer beschreiben, was dieses Addon eigentlich macht: Es fügt den Text unter "Konteneinstellungen->Signaturtext" an wahlweise an Cursorposition oder Ende ein.Und damit dieser Text nicht schon von TB selbst eingefügt wird, muss man (usw)
  • It does everything I need it to do. I like the fact that I can add the signature where my cursor is positioned. It would be really nice to be able to select different signatures, too.
  • Nice add on! It is useful if you use Thunderbird.
  • In general a great idea, since this feature is not available by default in Thunderbird - wonder why! However, it doesn't seem to work as expected in the following situations.

    a) When I reply to an email the plug-in does not add the signature, even though I have the settings configured per instructions.

    b) If you manage multiple accounts, and let's say you are in account A, click compose new email, realize you want to send from account B, change it in the compose window; the add signature no longer inserts the signature.

    I will say that I searched high-and-low for a way to get rid of the "--" that is inserted by default by Thunderbird. I found a solution and implemented it and I am wondering if that has something to do with my issues. Any thoughts/ideas are welcome.

    Developer response

    If you use more than one account please use signature switch instead!!!

    Please do not remove the "-- \n" at the beginning of the signature, it is truly usefull! :-)

  • That's it!!! I tried to use the html code you suggested
    and after ticking the html format box at the top of the signature box, it works just fine now. Thank you for your add on and for your time and good advice. Unlike soem of the reviewers, I think it's a great feature to be able to decide when you want your signature to be inserted or not. Cheers,
    R.

    Developer response

    Perfect! Thank you for using add-signature :-)
    I think this feature should be a default of thunderbird.
  • I second Kjell's question: Where does one associate the HTML signature line text with the right-click command? Thanks for trying to simulate Signature Switch: that seems such a basic email command that I can't fathom why Version 7 disabled it...
  • 文末だけではなくカーソル箇所に署名を貼れます。
    アカウント設定の署名編集欄に記述した文字をペーストするようです。
  • Beyond the ability to add a signature when you normally don't use one, this add-on is of little utility. What would be VERY helpful is the ability to CHOOSE from among several different "signatures" that can be inserted.

    Another add-on called "Signature Switcher" does this, but is not compatible with 7.0+.

    (PS to author: I'm not blaming you for another add-on's incompatibility. Just pointing out your add-on isn't as good.)

    Developer response

    sorry, but don't blame me for the compatibility of "signature switch"! :-)
  • ....how do I create the signature? Cant find anywhere to do that. ( I am brand new to Thunderbird as you probably understand.
  • how about a simple signature, different fonts, colors, sizes with no required -- as is now the case with thunderbird. seems so easy yet they cannot do it.
