Emoticons have suddenly stopped working
Apr 23rd, 2007 at 5:49pm
 
This may be more of a question for Allan than anyone else, but I have noticed in the last few weeks that emoticons don't work for me anymore. I can do this one Smiley . . . cause I know the way to make it on keyboard, but clicking on a smiley leads me with Zilch. I have a Mac. They used to work for me. Suggestions?

Thanks,
Hope

Hi Hope,

Yeah I've been having the same problem so I assume there's something wrong on the board itself. Gremlins!

There is a problem.  Sorry for taking so long to respond to your messages.  I am working on figuring out what is causing it, then I will be able to start working on a fix.

There is a "work-around", which is slower, but should work.  You can click on the "View All Smilies" link and choose the emoticon from that menu.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I'll let you know when it is working again.

Thanks,

Allan

Allen,

No need to apologize for anything. You have kept this wonderful site up and running for us and we are the ones who should apologize for not thanking you enough. THANKS for all your hard work and all your caring. My guess is you understand how important this board is to us, but I honestly doubt you really deeply realize the value of it and how it has helped so many of us find our way out of the darkness.

Thanks for working on this for us Allan!  It may seem kind of trivial to complain about smilies when we are still able to  communicate.  BUT they are special to us.  We love to add the smilies!!  So we appreciate you trying for us.  

A smilie tip that I learned when we first started having the problem.  Just put   :   )   but closer together without a space.  And that produces the smilie face.  Smiley   SEE?  And a sad face is  :    (     Same thing ~ without the space.  

Have a great week!

Big hugs,
Mandi Smiley

OK, smileys are fixed!  It turned out to be a conflict with the Amber Alert Ticker at the bottom of the page.  I've disabled that, until I can figure out how to fix the problem.

Thanks,

Allan
