How strange, I was having a wierd problem with the UBB sig code and was gonna seek you guys/gals advice... but it just resolved itself in the most bizzarre manner. Are there ghosts in the Asylum? Can spirits inhabit cyberspace?
I would paste this into my sig option:

Then when I checked it it would reappear as [ img][ /img] (notice the space between the first bracket and the 'i' in image and another one between the closing bracket and the backstroke. These gaps would just insert themselves after I submitted the new sig code causing the sig not to appear at all. Then I noticed it would fix itself and the sig would be displayed correctly again. Back and forth it would change... despite me tripple checking and re-pasting the code. Does anyone know what is going on here? The sig just comes and goes...wierd..
..also the sig should appear at the end of the post.. and it does not..

Hmm... Works fine in both instances for me... Is UBB Code ON? That may be part of the problem if its off... Or if its off... How do you turn it on? Can you turn it off? Maybe something to report to Admin.

I see the sigs and I have not had any problems here... All my sigs show, unless my site is down.

Yep I occasionally get some UBB weirdness with spaces being added breaking the UBB - I have just been fighting it in the main forum. Hold on I'll go and grab it as an example.

[edit: OK I haven't yet managed to get it to stop breaking and work properly:

From the favourite websites thread:

here, there, this, that and these[/UR L]


I also tried:

<A HREF="http://" TARGET=_blank>here
, there, this, that and thes[URL= k]e</A>

which it didn't like either.

And no neither space was added in by me]
