About signatures

TL;DR: Discourse will never have a signature feature in core. It might be available via a plugin developped by the community.

Thank you @zogstrip
So what plugin will be use for signature and where we can download these plugins. Are these plugin free or premium??
Here on discourse website we don’t saw any plugin option, are every plugin is already integrate in discourse during installation??
Please answer these queries.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no existing plugin which will do this. There was a very recent discussion on the subject:

The OP there eventually decided to try to educate his members away from signatures and towards using usercards.

Can you please tell me, is there any option exist in discourse back-end to enable or turn on signature or user cards?
And my second question is still there, where we can download these discourse plugins and are these plugins free or premium?

There is no option for signatures. As far as I know, usercards are on by default.

I’m not an admin, so I’ve never dealt with installing plug-ins, but there’s a category here which you’ll probably want to explore.

I believe it’s up to the plug-in author whether or not a plug-in is free.
