Help with Emoticons

(Joy Salt) #1

I can get the very small list of smileys by typing a : but how do I get more interesting and varied emoticons - hearts etc
(not the baboon which I uploaded directly as an animated gif)

PS In case nobody has noticed titles of topics must be 15 characters minimum

Answer - type a : and a letter and select from the list. Magic

don’t worry Stephanie, you’ll grow out of it :wink:

I used to be a regular on ebay’s forums years and years ago and we were demons with gifs. My own speciality was typing in invisible ink. I wonder if it works here?

We have this, but it is missing a handful like my favorite :markov: (hover over to discover the code)

Keep in mind, as you type stuff auto-completes so you can explore a bit, eg type

:m and the drop down adjusts.
