What's up with the smileys?
« on: January 03, 2010, 08:31:14 pm »
I noticed that in the topic editor window, the smileys are all text. Instead of the graphic smiley it only says "Smiley". If I click one to insert it into the post, it enters  a colon and right parenthesis as I would expect but in the preview or the finished post this is replaced with the word "Smiley".

Does anyone else have this problem?

It's been like that since this forum changed it's format a while ago.

My guess is that the forum configuration is pointing to the wrong location for the smiley files or that they don't exist.

Admin,
Please go to the Admin Tab, then in the Forum section of the Administrative Center select  Smileys and Message Icons. Check that the Base URL  and the Absolute path settings both point to the smiley icon files. If they do point to valid icon files but we (users) still can't see them, try selecting a different Default Smiley Set.

Good luck.

The issues with the Smileys should now be resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for bringing it to my attention.

THat would be sad if you had to earn the right to smile.
