HTML signature - revisited

I have tried off and on for a year to get an HTML signature in my Apple Mail - http://wojsf.com//WOJSig/ is the page I am trying to use - I have created a signatrue in Mail, replaced it with the above page by pasting the WebArchive name but the gif image will not appear - if I double click on the WebArchive in the Sig Library it appears in the Browser just fine, but will not appear in Mail when sent - any suggestions?

Not sure if this is what you want, but if you have a copy of the image
you have in the link on say your desktop then open Mail, create a
signature for the email you want to use it with and then drag the
image to the signature window… is that what your looking for.

unfortunately not, there is a way to have the image w/signature in
your Apple Mail app, somehow the gif is not referenced in Apple Mail

I have just done what I explained using both a .gif and a .jpeg, I
created an email using the signature and the images where there, then
when I sent it to one of my other addresses the signature came
through with both images attached. I am using mail 3.5 (Latest)
although I am sure this has been possible for a long time. Maybe I
miss understand what you want to do.

utilizing that approach the images appear as attachments, and it is a
multi part step, what I want and have seen is utilizing a signature
that is loaded on my server and referenced via html - the instructions
are all over the place, but somehow my image reference is not being
“referenced” and appears as a placeholder for the image

OK, that is a different thing all together. If the instructions are
‘all over the place’ it must be possible, then the only thing I can
think of is maybe the path you are using is not correct.

thats what I am trying to figure out - I created it in FW and wondered
if there are some settings that need to change - although as I said,
if I click on the saved WebArchive it shows the complete signature
with the image - dunno

Did you check if the domain is before the path in the email, it
wouldn’t be if you have taken the code fromFW as the files it use
would be on the server anywhere so all it needs is to set the path to
the folder along with the image name! I don’t know if this is what the
issue is but if you used the code in an email then how would the mail
application know what domain the image was located on?

only back to the folder on the server… not to the domain and the
folder on the server.

I take it the image you refer to is: baymap.jpe and when you say you
use the code created by FW you mean the exact code? How does anything
outside the server know where the image is located with: BayMap, the website does because it is located on the
server.

Exactly. There’s an action called Remote Resources that writes out
paths in full - if the problem is to do with paths this might well
cure it.

Going back to the sig page that you posted a link to above and looking at the source code reveals


<img src="baymap.jpeg" border="0" width="113" height="86" alt="BayMap" style="float:left"/></td>

Which is a relative link as discussed above.

Why not just delete the and insert an HTML markup item with the full path on the page.


<img src="http://www.wojsf.com//WOJSig/baymap.jpeg">

If that is where the image lives on your server.

You can use the upload stuff action to make sure this gif is placed where you want it.

This is what I did to get this
