Thunderbird

RJack-10
Can anyone help with the creating of a signature to use with Thunderbird
please. I have read the details in a very good book by Peter Hipson but
his method doesn't seem to work. I have created the Html code but it
doesn't appear in the html window that appears when you are creating it.
Outlook was very easy but cannot get thunderbird to work. Thanks

As an alternative to Tagzilla you could use Pick-a-Tag.
My signature was created with it and it works with most
mail programs including Thunderbird, Mozilla and SeaMonkey.

Pick-a-Tag: http://mysite.verizon.net/vze1zhwu/pat160b1.zip

See the thread in Mozilla.support.seamonkey
"Tagzilla in SeaMonkey"

Tried the Pick a tag but not too sure how to work it.It seems simple
enough but doesn't have a 'continue' button after you do something. Can
you help further please?

Not sure what you're asking for.  The readme.txt file seems to be
compete enough to instruct the user in the use of the program.  There is
no need for a 'continue' button.  It 'continues' to run after it's
started until YOU cancel it.  Can you be more explicit in your question?

Well I seem to have generated the signature html ok but cannot get it to
work in the Thunderbird Mail.
In outlook it was easy but when I put in the details in Thunderbird it
only produces a small square with nothing there. I realize I am missing
something here but sure don't know what. it is not easy for an old
simpleton like me. Thanks for your help

Hmmm..  I believe your problem may be in creating the signature in HTML.
 Use plain text.

Yes, *you* can - but as the readme.txt file indicates the sig that PAT
creates is in plain text.

Hi KK,

Can you post your HTML code here so we can look at it?  I use HTML sig
files and they work fine in TB.  Does your file with the HTML code use
the HTM extension and not TXT?  That's a must.  Otherwise your code will
just show up as text.

Got myself all messed up now Terry and not sure where I am at the
moment. I presume you mean using the program suggested or jst any html
editor??? In Outlook you just create an html line...like:
<p><img src="D:\Signatures\KK.gif"></p></body> where the file KK.gif is
stored and up it comes when you go 'insert sig' but in Thunderbird it is
a little different I am finding. How do I get that line as shown above
to work???

Hi KK,

To insert an image, you can't use the Windows/DOS path convention.  It
should be like this:

<img src="file:///d://signatures//KK.gif" width="70" height="70"
align="middle" alt="KK signature">

I added width & height sizes but you will need to insert the actual
pixel size.

You don't appear to be adding text, so leave <p> and </p> out.  The
</body> is not needed either as TB knows it's an HTML file because of
the extension (if it was needed you would also need the beginning tag of
<body> anyway).

Save the file as KK.HTM and then attach it as a sig file.  If you use
Notepad, use quotes around the filename like "kk.htm" so a txt extension
won't be added.

Did all that Terry but all I get is the "KK signature" (without the
quotes) appearing at the end. When composing the message I do see part
of the gif file (it is an animated gif of my name)showing but the end
result is not that gif just the part after the alt=

Did you change the width & height as I stated? If not, your gif is being
put into a 70x70 box and your gif may be larger than that. Right click
on your gif in Explorer and get the width & height and change it in the
example I gave you to the actual size.

KK,

If you're not getting the image, it's because it's not in the path that
you provided to me. You said your GIF was located at
D:\Signatures\KK.gif, so I made the path file:///d://signatures//KK.gif
. If your KK.gif is located on the D: drive in the folder signatures,
then it will work.

If you look at the reply where I attached the HTM file, you will see at
the bottom that all that shows is "KK signature". That is because the
GIF file is not located where I pointed it to. That's what will happen
if the path is wrong.

Got it Terry,
thanks for your patience with me, much appreciated. Firstly I had missed
the second / after d: and also thunderbird gives you the option of
sending in three ways: Plain Txt only: Plain and Html: Html only.
Now as it always defaults to 'Plain Txt' the only thing you get is the
wording after the 'alt=' If you choose the 'plain and html' then the gif
sig works just fine.....bit tricky for a novice like me....
Anyway all sorted and many thanks again. Hope I can help others as well
as you have helped me.
