    If I click on a smilies icon and it comes up spelled instead of displayed, what's up?

    You must have a space on either side of it for it to show the picture.

    Do you mean when you are typing a message? and you click on a smiley on the right? That is just the way it is named in the whatever halls of smileydom that I don't even start to understand. When you hit the submit button to publish your post, it magically changes into the icon.
    But you do need a space on either side for the hall of smileydom to understand it is one of the smileys in the hall.

    NIFTY, can you translate what I jsut tried to explain??? [​IMG]

    Smiley codes like
    :

    :barnie

    are parsed by the forum and converted into a smiley automatically. You don't need to even click on an icon to have the code posted in your post, you cans simply type out the code by doing something like
    :

    :)

    .

    Now, if you have smilies too close to other text it can sometimes confuse the forum parser so to be on the safe side always have a space on either side of your smiley code.

    There is an option to "never show smilies as icons for this post" and I honestly have no idea what that does. [​IMG]

    smileys across the top do not require a space between, however ones to the right do
    no space:

    with space

    Thanks for help, sounds like I simply need to give the icon room to breathe. Why would a country boy like me not know enough to give my icon some space?
    This is a good lesson learned... Thank-You!
