...I really have no idea why you can't put smilies in the posts... do you mean text ones or graphical ones?

I'm not sure why it's not working on your computer. You could try manually typing in the "code" for them. It doesn't apply for all of them, but for most, they start and end with a colon (:) and in between you type the name of the smiley, such as eek () or smile () or grumpy (:grumpy:), or the two most frequently used; rofl (:rofl:) and biggrin (). Once in a while, when I insert a smiley, the reply window scrolls up to the top for no apparent reason, but the smiley is always there and it's just a matter of scrolling back down to continue typing.

I was meaning graphical ones.
And until now i could not do them, may be the typing which moonbear suggest is a choice, but still i am totally not used to it [i like inserting them by clicking on them from the list on the right] it was not happenign at all to me, now it is happening always urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!

get rid of the paranthesees (blah sp?)

:name:

replace name with smile, or biggrin, or any of the others

So you will have

colon nameofsmiley colon

make sure to have no spaces between the colon and the nameofsmiley

:nameofsmiley:

edit... I hope the latter is a bit more clear.

It isn't "laughing", it's "rofl" (for rolling on floor laughing). You'll soon get the knack for it.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaha! i see :rofl:
I was thinking that the names to use are the same when you put the mouse on the top of a face from the list. and that yellow rectangular appears with a name for that face...cats should eat mice [or "mouses" ]

Yeah Moonbear, thx a lot for the help, and opology if somebody had a headache cuz of that,

and the last battle with the machines ENDED....PC terminated. Done !i!i

LOL! Yeah, for most of the smilies, the name that pops up is the name to use, but a few aren't named the same as what you need to type for them. And some don't work with the same rules.
