View Full Version : Smilies Not Working Like They Should?

This is a minor gripe but for some strange reason some of the smilies offered in the reply/post windows do not show up properly when posted.

For example, the "smile"( :) )works as shown in the smilies window (and drop down box), but "dancing" (\\:D/) does not. It shows up fine in the reply window as well, but once posted it does not work as shown. Instead, one gets a "very happy" with \\ and / characters. Just wondering if this is just me or if everyone sees their smilies this way.

And if this is what everyone sees, would it be difficult to fix so that they show up as intended?

Glad I am not the only one then! Phew! ;)

I wonder if any mod or someone else with magic forum powers will read this and see if they can fix it? Or at least reply so we know what is going on. :-\"

We've noticed. It's on the to-do list, but we have a few other things ahead of it, like say, keeping the access times for each of the pages under a minute. When we put the current forum fires out, we'll work on the smilies ok?

We've been concentrating on the stability, structure, and new sections. Hopefully soon we'll get to the smilies.

This is great news. Thank you for your reply, otherwise, no one would have known it was on your to-do list :)

And it is good to see that you guys are working on making these forums the best that they can be. Keep up the amazing job!
