Using Emoticons

Post by LeftyBass » Tue Sep 28, 2010 1:13 pm

Somewhere along the way, I missed the class on how to get the smiley faces actually into a message. Clearly - Buffalo Bob has this one down pat! But for me - whenever I try to get them inserted, all I get is a long string of techno-geek.

Here are all the codes that list out under my batch of Smilies -

BBCode is ON
[img] is ON
[flash] is OFF
[url] is ON
Smilies are ON

Should anything be changed? Should I be double-clicking instead of dragging? Some other control feature that I clearly am not yet using? What am I doing wrong?

Hi Lefty,

A single-click should do the trick. I don't think drag-and-drop is supported.
