    I would like to know how you enter smiley faces on the WGT forums. I found a website called getsmileyface.com that has a lot of cool emoticons. You use it by clicking on the smiley and copying/pasting the text code into the post. However I tried just a minute ago to make a post here on the WGT forums and it just posted the text. The three codes they give you are:

    <a href=http://www.getsmileyface.com><img src=http://www.getsmileyface.com/sm/sad/1011.gif border=0><br><font face=arial size=1>Smiley Face</font></a>

    [image]<a href=http://www.getsmileyface.com><img src=http://www.getsmileyface.com/sm/sad/1011.gif border=0><br><font face=arial size=1>Smiley Face</font></a>[/image]

    <a href=http://www.getsmileyface.com><img src=<a href=http://www.getsmileyface.com><img src=http://www.getsmileyface.com/sm/sad/1011.gif border=0><br><font face=arial size=1>Smiley Face</font></a> border=0><br><font face=arial size=1>Smiley Face</font></a>

    The reason I ask is because I would like to be able to post smileys like the two WGT masters, Snaike and Faterson (remember them?). If anybody has any suggestions on websites to find smileys and/or how to post them on WGT, please don't hesitate to comment. Thanks for your time.

    Right-click on the image and copy the image location, not the link. Then click on the "Insert Media" button above and paste the location.

    My very good friend Faterson has written a rather exhaustive (does he know any other kind?) guide to inserting smilies, changing font colors, changing the size of text, inserting media, etc etc etc..

    You can find his guide here.

    I have been to your "getsmiley" site above and had the same trouble you have.  It seems their codes do not include the URL.  Personally, I find sites like Smiley Vault to be very user friendly.

    Good luck!

    Oh yes, and for linking people to more smileys!

    YankeeJim:
    Right-click on the image and copy the image location, not the link. Then click on the "Insert Media" button above and paste the location.

    Sometimes (not in all browsers) it also works when you simply highlight, with your mouse, a smiley you see on another webpage, press CTRL+C and then CTRL+V right here in WGT's edit window.

    The reason those links do not work for you, Gaoerfuqiu, is that this site's discussion forum and its software seem to be an innovative, in-house solution, not the standard discussion forums like phpBB or vBulletin, where the codes given by you would work. (And the methods that work here wouldn't work there.)

    PS: I ain't no "WGT master", I've only been (hyper-)active in the forums.  Telocvik
