    How do you get those cute little guys on here? I can't figure it out, I am sure it is simple but can someone help me out?

    Some of them are texts like a : and another symbol, but if you look above your window that you are typing your message in, you can see the line of smilies above it, also there's a label to the right of your window that says smilies Show Hide. Click on show and you will see the selection. If you click on one of the pictures of either the smilies above your window or the smilies next to your window, you will get a smilie! [​IMG]

    if you choose the text option, the chicken I just typed is colon : and the letters cd (with no space between them so the pic shows up) but that gets pretty complicated.

    Good luck, hope that helps!

    Also it works if you put a space between every smilie and a space between smilies and words. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Put a space between each one. [​IMG] space [​IMG] space [​IMG] You are typing in a little web program command for those smilies and if they run together, it's an error in the command.

    Just don't forget the space in between each [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] ! That one is my favorite and I usually will put 2 or 3 spaces in between each little [​IMG] like this [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]. I put 5 spaces in between the last run of smileys. Just try in and have fun, you'll get it.

    Quote:oh yeah I didn't mean to type the word space in between, but the [​IMG] [​IMG] one should have worked with just one space in between...so I am not sure why the picture and then the text didn't work. I think you forgot the space between the two of them...since it is showing up in my quote as having no space...as lovemychicks9 mentioned, just do a few spaces between each pic you click on, and you should be safe.

    Thanks for the instructions.

    but how do you get the moving ones?

    Quote:the little menu next to the window you are typing your message in says Smilies [show] [hide] - click on show and you will get the rest of the smilies available. Same thing for these guys...the moving ones look like they take up a lot of space, but you only need one space between each smilie for them to work.

    (sorry, I don't mean to seem the smilie expert...I just keep checking messages when this post comes up and smilies are fun!)
