    Exclamation How to get Smilies

    Alright the board is brand new, but if you want to get more out of it, you can change a few settings. These allow for formatting and thus smilies.

    To do this go to UserCP> Edit Options (in toolbar on left) > Message Editor Interface (bottom of page) > Enhanced Interface (in drop down menu) > Save changes.

    So I can make my text bold and italic. Change color

    There seems to be a limit of one smilie per post. Is that adjustable? I can see preventing posts with a hundred winks or LOLs, but being able to drop in a handful would be nice.

    Also, is this BB format compatible with animated smiles? I miss our old "D'oh!" guy, and the blushing one.

    It should be, to the best of my knowledge. I'm not sure what's involved with importing them though.

    Oh yes :



    The admins need to up the IMG tag limit from one per post to a more user friendly limit of say 5 per post.

    As to your old smilies if you've got saved them to disc then all you need to do is upload them to a web site, then link to that image.

    Yeah but It shouldn't be two hard to import them... on phpBB there is a whole lot you can import, takes a cpl of seconds. I suppose they'll add them- but I think They've got tonn's of other stuff to do at the moment.

      Images include use of smilies, the vB code [img] tag and HTML <img> tags. The use of these is all subject to them being enabled by the administrator.

    We're still working on it. There are a lot of settings that have to be tweaked still, image settings is one of them.

    I agree. This current limit sickens me.

    And what happened to the " :P " emoticon? I thought that was universal...

    with regards

    Thank you, Thank you!
    I was wondering how to do that and was about to start a George Jetson "How do you work this thing?" thread.
