Hello there!

Been posting for last couple of months and don't seem to have got the hang of inserting smiley faces. When posting such as now I have a box on the right with 15 little faces. When I click on more and see all those wonderful different ones I can't seem to get them onto my thread:(

Would love to jolly some threads up with other faces such as 'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' smiley faces.

As you've guessed I'm not fantastic with computers and just know enough to get me by. Maybe I'm just waffling because I'm shattered so off to bed I think.:hehe:

Hi Mrs M

:oops:

Do you mean this sort of thing?

I clicked on 'More' under the 15 faces and it opened a window of smileys, I then clicked on the one I wanted. It appeared in the text

I was wondering though where people are getting the happy birthday balloons from?

Love
Sara

Me again ... worked it out.

After you get the window of extra smileys up you choose a category at the top for the type of smiley you want.

Yes thats how you do it Sara. Well done!

The other thing you can do if you have a regular, favourite smiley - say something for a birthday - is you can actually type in the code for it rather than clicking and inserting. For example this smiley :hapbirth: is inserted when you type the following: (just remember NOT to include the space I left after the first : as otherwise it would just insert the image and not the words to show you what I mean!

: hapbirth:

Try it....

Also try
: bday:

Cheers

Well, I'll be. It turned out to be so simple. I always felt so bad posting because mine are so plain; especially the happy birthday postings. Although, in real life I'm very plain too, so maybe that's why. Anyway, now I'll have to spend an hour or so chcking them out!

Hi Bridie

I'm sure you'll get there. When you click on new thread or reply do you get a pop up box where you type in your message. At the right hand side of that box do you have 15 faces and it says 'more' underneath them?

Click on more and you should be able to click on the one you want although I tried that loads of times and they refused to go onto my thread. I now type in the code as Joan suggested and that inserts the smileys for me once I click submit.

Hope this makes sense. Why not try posting a reply to this using method above and see how it turns out. You've got nothing to lose!

Love Mrs M x :cheer2:
