    If I open the signup.html template it looks like gibberish. How do I alter the template and what does it have to do with the signup.php file.

    The browser version looks like gibberish and so does the html code to me.

    How would I even attempt to edit it.
    Are their docs on how this works and how it relates to the .php file.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Dan,
    signup template is HTML file with special smarty tags. So you need to know HTML and SMARTY in order to edit it.
    signup.php have all necessary code that will be executed on signup and signup.html template is what user will see.
