Introduction

How to Add Smilies to Your Posts

This tutorial explains how to add smilie graphics to your posts. This is a multi-page tutorial -- use the Contents box above or the page numbers at the bottom to navigate.

Smilies are small graphical icons which you can insert into your messages to convey an emotion or feeling, such as a joke or embarrassment. For example, if you entered a sarcastic comment, rather than type 'that was a joke', you could simply insert the 'wink' smilie, like this:

Here's how to add smilies to your posts:


Turn On Smilies
Click the My Home link -- it is on the far left end of the orange bar at the top of every PassPorter Community page, then click Edit Options. Scroll down to the Message Editor Interface, as shown below -- choose Enhanced Interface (our recommendation) or Standard Editor then click Save Changes.





Start a Post
Now that your message editor interface is set to show smilies, go to The Driveway (our testing forum) and click New Topic. In the resulting window, look for the Smilies box on the right side of the message editor window, as shown below.





Add Smilies
To add a smilie to your post, simply click one of the smilies shown in the Smilie box on the right side. Once you click, the smilie will be inserted into your post as either the graphic (Enhanced Interface) or the code (Standard Editor). Below is our test post with the smilie code inserted. Tip: Click the More link at the bottom of the Smilies box to see many more smilies -- all are clickable.

Troubleshooting Tips
  • Make sure your Message Editor Interface is set to Standard or Enhanced.
  • When using the Quick Reply box at the bottom of a thread, you won't see this Smilie box. Look for the Smilie menu instead, as shown in the image below.
