How To Create Signature in Gmail

Usually in physical world we all end a letter or a mail with a signature. But do you know that you can add a signature to your e-mails as well ?

I am not talking of signing mails manually every time you compose an e-mail.

I am talking about adding a electronic signature to your mail settings which will then be added as a footer to each and every email which you send.

This is called an e-mail signature. And this feature is available in almost every e-mail service like Google, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. But in this thread, I am going to talk about how to add signature to your Gmail account.

Also note that this might be a very simple or newbie type of thread for you if you are a computer geek. But there are many people around me who don’t know about this. And i am writing this short post to help them out.

And then save changes to your Gmail Settings. That’s it.

WordPress OrangeBox Plugin doesn’t work in Sidebar

OrangeBox is a plugin for WordPress which creates a fancybox or thickbox effect for all media on your blog. Such as pictures, videos, etc.

Its really nice and effective fancybox plugin which you can use with your WordPress blog.

Now about the problem, The plugin only works in Single post or Single page area of WordPress posts.

I wasn’t aware of this till the time i tried to use OrangeBox in the sidebar !

When i tried to use OrangeBox in the sidebar, it just used to open up a completely new web page instead of opening the content in a fancybox.

I have drawn a image which explains this problem very well –


See the image above, Consider you want to open the blue image in the sidebar of your blog.

Case 1 – When you click on the image in the sidebar, it simply opens up in a new window.

Case 2 – When you click on the image in the sidebar, it opens up in a fancybox effect with the help of OrangeBox.

Case 1 is our problem and Case 2 is how we want it to work.

How to Solve it?

If you are displaying an image link in the sidebar then you might be using this type of code:

And that code might not work well with OrangeBox.

So to get it to work, you can just replace that code with the following code:

And that would definitely solve the problem.

Simple CSS Feedburner Subscribe Box

If you need a very Simple CSS Feedburner Subscribe Box then this is the right post for you.

Also note that we’re not adding any fancy styles or designs to the subscribe box in this post. What we are going to do is just add simple CSS code to the feed-burner subscribe box.

Given below are codes to different colored Simple Subscribe Boxes –
