    Unable to edit signatures - 'Invalid File' error

    Just tried changing my signature and received a 'file invalid error'.

    For what it's worth this is relatively common error with vB 4.2.5 and can often be fixed by reverting the 'modifysignature' template in the forum style, but naturally I can't diagnose the real problem with any certainty from here.

    Cheers.

    I heard another report of this this weekend - first time it has been reported.

    I'll report it in the admin area where it will hopefully be picked up by someone with more technical skill - until it's fixed I'm happy to overwrite sigfiles for anyone who wants their sig changed - probably best to PM me the new one.

    I had the same trouble; never got around to reporting it, sorry.
