    Default deleting signature line from old posts

    How do I remove my signature line from all of my posts? I've deleted it from the user CP, but it's still there for all my old posts?

    I want to delete it because it links to a personal blog, and recent events have me paranoid about posting pictures of myself and my hiking partner.

    Thanks!

    Try just changing it in the User CP instead of deleting it. Just put in a dash or something if you don't want any text. I've updated mine once or twice and it changes in all of the old posts.

    If its a true signature than it can be deleted in the cp, if its just part of the post you'll have to go back and edit all your posts. There is a search feature to find them all.

    When I do a quote on your post I do not see the blogspot line. Therefore, it is in the signature line controlled by your CP. Go back in and change it then make sure you go through the subsequent steps to save it. You may not have ended up saving it after your changes.

    Got it -- I thought I had gone through the proper steps before, but I guess I hadn't.

    Much obliged,
    Trish

    FYI...if you don't want people to view your blog you need to make it private (password protected or some other form), simply removing the link from this forum is a start, but not a final solution.
