I tried this and it didn't work. I even tried to copy and paste the smilie. I've even turned off the pop-up blocker....nada. I appreciate the help. I guess I'll have to go through life without smilies. I can think of worse things. :)
Edit: Hey, I just discovered that if I type the smilie it works. :yay
I had that happen with my computer for a long time TD. I had to type them on the computer that had really high security settings.
I don't have a clue what settings I changed , or whether it was as a result of one of those many XP upgrades, but suddenly I could. I always could on my laptop, and I thought the settings were about the same.
Toothdoc... I was forever looking for my smilies as well, and I realized that it was something I had unchecked under User CP ---> options... I'll look for that, and then tell you what to do assuming that's your problem.
ETA: It's under "miscellaneous options" and you need to choose "Standard Editor" rather than the basic one...
