Thank you to the people who uploaded the smileys. I have a question about them, though. They do not seem to be available when making a "quick post"... but sometimes smileys have alternate codes that can be typed, so that you don't need to pull up the smiley menu and click the one you want. I mean codes that usually have : : on each side of the name of the smiley icon. Is there a list of these somewhere?
Also, on my regular laptop, when I click the smiley button, the pop-up menu containing the smileys to choose from is longer top to bottom than my computer screen is. It looks like there are smileys that are off the screen at the bottom but when I try to scroll down to get to them, the pop-up menu disappears. Can something be done about this?

Hi Nuthatch. I haven't personally had any involvement in the adding of the smileys, but I know that those who have are aware of the problem about the smiley menu having no scroll bar. I think they are figuring things out. Re. the smiley codes, I'll have a look for you if you like and see if I can help.
I think the Quick Reply box is intended to be just a text reply, and to add anything else you have to go to the full reply box. Some smileys do work just by typing them in though: etc. (I pretty much always use Quick Reply out of laziness!)

If you hover over the smiley you and type whatever comes up, it will show up. I.e. grouphug = group hug with no space. I'll talk to the other admins and mods about putting together a list, and hopefully we can figure out how to change the scrollbar in the smileys box while we're at it.
If you type wave smile without the space between them, you should be able to get the little guy without having to wait for someone to post one you can steal.
I really want to get the already created plug-in to work on here. It was briefly, but it was half off the screen on the quick reply screen. I'm working on it. If I can't get it sorted by Sunday, I'll put in a request for someone to create a better plug-in.
