Hi Team

I am having a problem with the new forum that may be confined to my computer or incorrect usage of the Forum features.

If I add an emoticon, it shows correctly in preview but changes to html code when posted. If I then edit the post to remove the html and reinsert the emoticon it displays correctly. It will probably make a liar of me right now but if I insert a smilie here: http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/images/smilies/smile.gif this is the result.

Any ideas on why this is happening, or is it appearing OK on others' computers and only showing on mine?

:badpc:IE 6.0.28 SP1, but should that make a difference to how a post is sent? Everything else works fine on any site I visit.

PS I assume that your browser had an English Public school upbringing.:p

But it isn't consistent GF, I've been using the WYSIWUG editor and haven't run in to the problem although, I've seen the result of other's problems :yuck: :yuck: :yuck: :@@: :@@:

BTW Billy, I'm using Firefox in both Linux and Windows, I imagine that others with the problem are using different browsers to you and me.

Testing the WYSIWYG editor


And that's with IE.

So it's working now? Or sometimes...

I went looking for the problem, found it, and found how to put it right.

The insertion of the html link to the emoticon just indicates that the forum software understands that as a logical serious person you wouldn't like to be represented with the levity implied by the use of a graphic emoticon. An html link conveys the emotion, and for more trivial readers it gives them the option of seeing the image.:rolleyes; :nerd;

:cool; :thumbs;

I missed that thread.

No WYSIWYG until other issues are overcome then. :(
