OK I know that some of you are well aware of it, but I noticed that most aren't. This board can use smilies and special tags to format your message. If you wish to insert the code for a message or a smilie then you can do so by clicking either on 1 of the smilies beneath or on one of the buttons. Also put source code between CODE tags (code-start,code-end buttons) you'll notice that it keeps it's formatting and that smilies don't affect it then. It's here, use it. IMHO these buttons are simple and self-explanatory but if you have questions you are always welcome to ask. Happy posting. -H-
oh and the search functions. not yet a good full blown implementation but it works
Hi, I would like to insert smileys or other in my message, how must I do to put a smiley, what must I write in the message between the CODE tags. Thankx Vom-bonjour:-()
No don't answer, now I managed in fact.
As I said in a message on the feedback forum, if you edit an existing message, those buttons DONT appear, this makes it considerably more difficult to use them :P Mirno
so.. what happens if you use :grin: as a handle? umbongo
nothing at all
Mirno: I can't determine where the cursor in a textarea form is (not that I know of) so every tag gets added to the string that's currently in the box. This functions for a text that's being built but does not for a text that is being edited. So you see the problem? If anyone has a solution please let me know, I'll be happy to put it in.
I don't particularly mind having to ctrl-x ctrl-v things into place, I think thats much easier than remembering all the mnemonics for smileys, and the syntax for links etc. In fact its kind of what I do anyway, I usually forget to put in all the formatting, and go back and do it! Its not really that much of a problem tho! Mirno
what I can do is add another text field that gives you the code and you have to copy paste it then
