Will not load images into forum pages. Locks up and won't budge!

I'm gonna post the answer here for others *as well* ... you can only get that invalid file type by using the BROWSE button in EDIT SIG
use an external uploader like Photobucket or tinypic or the Roo uploader to upload the image, then click on EDIT SIG and copy and paste the image code into the box provided just like in a post

The Roo uploader does horrible things to my sig pics. It somehow "adds" to the code so I am lucky if a single small pic will fit.

what it's doing is turning the code into a "slave code", that's what Wojjie called it
I have the same problem in PM's with some people, but not with others lol
Mrs C was having the same problem as you
in those instances, it's better to use tinypic, as you've done

I have had it happen a couple of times and sometimes it isn't the up loader site, all I do is close and open internet explorer and it would work fine again.
