    Disable smilies in text

    Do I have to do this each time or is there a setting in User CP that I didn't notice?

    Pretty sure there is no setting.

    Okay, thanks. It doesn't cause a problem most of the time but yesterday I saw that about : p lugins (without spaces) showed up as aboutlugins and it took me a while

    I have a custom noparse tag set up in bbcode extra in f/fox.

    I use that for a specific reason - but you could do similar if it causes you issues.

    Not sure if this applies but cariboo907 shared a hint with me recently about disabling smilies in text that I post in quote tags:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...51&postcount=9

    I've only tried it in quote tags so I don't know beyond that

    OT, but that thread of mine was a bad idea

    By the way, the smilie 8_) (I mean the one without the '_') result in this: 8) which is pretty annoying, when you list items:
    1)
    2)
    3)
    4)
    5)
    6)
    7)
    8)
    9)

    You could use the [list][/list]BBCode tags with the [list=1][/list]variant. Demonstration:

    1. This
    2. is
    3. a
    4. demo
    5. of
    6. the
    7. list
    8. tags
    9. using
    10. the
    11. "list=1"
    12. variant.


    With the indenting it looks better too!

    See the link in my sig for BBCodes, and here for the list tags.
