I don't think so. The best way to figure them out is to experiment with them.

Hi, this is nothing major, but in doing my Read-post thru the Bible, i notice that sometimes when i post certain Scripture references that use the number 8 in parenthesis, like (Lv. 24:Cool, i end up with a cool face Cool . I see the reason why. evidently that is the same code, but i thought i would let you know. Maybe if i put a space between the number and the parenthesis it will not do it. I do the study off line and then paste it, which is why i don't catch it.

Hello Daniel1212AV,

Many people use quick keyboard codes for the smilies and an "8" right next to a ")" is the quick code for a cool face. When you get ready to save your message, click the options on the bottom left and mark "Don't Use Smileys". That will take care of this problem. You either have to click this option when saving every message or risk a smiley coming up. You can click the "Help" key at the top of your screen and get a list of the quick codes that result in smileys. I usually just make a habit of clicking "Don't Use Smileys" unless I want to use smileys.

The user interface is really pretty nice. Just click "Additional Options" and see a menu that contains "Don't Use Smileys".

Love in Christ,
Tom

Galatians 6:9-10 NASB  Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.

Another quick way of fixing that problem is if you use a Scripture in parentheses that ends with an 8 just add an extra space to it and that will fix the problem too.

I'm sorry I didn't specify where to add the extra space. It goes right after the 8 and before the parentheses.  Cheesy

Question? 
There has been several times that after having added a post, I have wanted to add a Smiley face.  When I click on the Smiley of my choice my entire post is deleted. Needless to say to avoid this problem of having to retype posts I just don't use smiley faces. Any suggestions??

I'm not clear on exactly what you are saying. Are you saying this is happening prior to submitting the post the first time or is it happening on a modify to your post??

If it is during a modify then insure that the text you want posted is still in the modify box along with the smiley before clicking on save. If it is on the original submit then I am stumped as it shouldn't remove the text when the smiley is added.

It is on the orginal post. Sometimes it seems it  happened with certain ones I picked. I will try it again and see if I can narrow the field down. If not old fashioned smiles will do.  Smiley

Is this with the forum generated smilies or with extras that you are using?

Here are the forum generated smilies.

 Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin Angry Sad Shocked Cool Huh Roll Eyes Tongue Embarrassed Lips Sealed Undecided Kiss Cry


All of those seem to work for me.

Hello Islandboy,

This is very strange and the first time I've ever heard of a problem like this being reported. I wouldn't have a clue what might cause this.

Do you get any error messages from either your own computer or the server on Christians Unite?

If so, please save those error messages and post them so that we might be able to figure out what's going on.

The forum software is mature, stable, and used by many thousands of people on a huge number of forums. This type of error on a very simple forum function would be like a trip into the Twilight Zone.   Shocked

Please see if you can duplicate the error and collect all possible information to see if we can unravel this mystery.
