My email signature does not look right when I paste it into Postbox
First check - has the user selected all of the HTML?
A majority of the time when this happens, the user installing the signature has not copied all of the relevant code before pasting it into Postbox. To ensure that all of the code from the signature is copied, the user needs to use Ctrl + A to select the signature when open in the browser or full screen preview and Ctrl + C to copy it. If the user uses their mouse to select the code, they may not select all of the HTML for the signature to work correctly, which will cause the signature to look different when pasted in.
Second check - has the user deleted all prior HTML/ characters/text from the signature settings box before pasting?
You need to make sure you delete everything from the signature box before you paste the signature in. If you do not delete everything before you paste your signature in, it will not work correctly. Delete all of the email signature from the signature settings box by selecting it all (Ctrl A) then hit Delete. Make sure that your cursor is at the top left of the signature box and you cannot select anything inside the box. You should not be able to move the cursor anywhere, it should remain in the top left corner. You may not be able to see it, the only way to ensure you have deleted it all it to double click around inside the box and delete anything you find. Now copy and re-paste in your email signature, using only Ctrl + A, Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V.
I am composing an email and I can't click on any links or social media icons
In compose mode, most email programs won't allow you to use the links in your email signature. Check to see if your email signature has been installed correctly by sending a test email to yourself instead. The links and social media icons should work when you receive the email.
