emoticons do not work.

  1. I have read this, and followed the instruction (i.e. ticked "Convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display"):

    But after I enterd the emoticons (e.g. :) ) in my blog, it did not convert to graphics.

  2. :)
    will not convert


    The space is essential.

  3. I copied your reply to my blog for testing, but also did not work.

    Besides, I got another problem. Please click on the first picture of the following:
    I saw the picture in after I post the blog in :
    But after a period of time, it just show the link. Is it a bug?

  4. Do not copy what I wrote.
    I used a non-break space.
    What I said does work.

    This will not be a smiley:)

    This will be a smiley :)

    Write that into your blog. Do not copy / paste.

  5. You can also forse the generation of the smilely as well if you have to:

    http: //

    (Note: A space was adde din after the colon to get the URL to show up correctly here)

    Although the :) should work fine. Does on mine. Only text i typed in on that post was the colon and the ')' mark. I did have to leave a space before the colon to get it to show up though.

  6. I tried many times, but did not really work.
    drmike, could you please copy the html source when you editing your post for me to have a look?

  7. Did you click 'Options', then click 'Writing', and then see this:

  8. Of course. I have mentioned this in my first post.


    Do not use a
    on a new line.

    They do work.

  10. space-colon-right parenthese

  11. Thank you, I think I know how to use it.

  12. Well, I'm also having problems this morning in getting a smiley to "take". I use the usual :) and it comes out in the saved post exactly like that: colon-right-parenthesis. Used to, a smiley would be inserted in its place.

  13. Hmm. I did a search on smileys so I wouldn't add a new topic when there was an existing thread, but I now note that this one is labeled "resolved." I would start a new thread, but I'm afraid I'd be labeled as "spamming the forum." I'm not sure what I should do at this point, but let me say that as of 10:30 a.m. PDT on 6 Oct 2006 the smileys are not working on my blog...

    Let me know if I should start a new thread.

  14. Hi Leisureguy,

    It is great that you searched first. I think it would be better to start a new thread next time, referencing this one.

    I have investigated the issue and opened ticket 3216. The problem is that the smily is not converted if it is the last "term" in the post.

  15. Thanks very much. You're right---I had not noted that. I can see that "last item" might be a special case---and offers me an immediately workaround. :) See?

  16. Oops. Workaround didn't work here---but it did work in my blog.

  17. ;)
