View Full Version : Smileys dont work

27-07-2011, 04:42 AM
I have a abuse to report, my smileys don't work here (insert crying smiley here)

How can I express my true feelings without smileys (insert angry red smiley face here)

(insert sad smiley face here) ( insert signature smiley of a sheep here) (insert whistling smiley here)

Didn't you upload your own the last time you complained the smileys were crap? Any graphics of yours should work with the or [URL] tags around them?

:computersmash: If this doesnt solve your problem, give me some more details about where youre trying to link from and I will try to solve this tonight when i get home from my real job.

http://www.myemoticons.com/images/hobbies-leisure/tv/recliner.gif This one?

Thats just your url surrounded by your file tags. Thats all the code from http to .gif

The forum software wont let you use HTML as a security precaution so it changes the text to something called BB code. I also use Firefox and have no problems.

Its not mate, if you can operate a taping gun then this is easy.

If our site doesnt have a smiley you want to use, find the avatar you want online from another site, copy the image url, paste it somewhere in your reply then manually type in before the http part and then after the .jpg or .gif part to close the command. Click the "Go advanced" button then "Preview Post" to see if it works.

Alternatively, in the reply to thread box, click on http://www.tapingandjointing.com/forum/images/editor/insertimage.png to add an image, click the "From URL" tab, and add the link in the space.

Its a 10 second job buddy and both methods will have the same effect.
