Hello.

I have seen some really cool emoticons in some of the posts. Where do you guys get them?

Thanks,

Not sure which ones you mean Posted Image

Although there is a selection of clickable smiley's available next to where you type your post's.

I have just recently learned of Best Smileys
The great thing about the smiley's at Best Smiley's, is that the site provides an image tag. So the smiley's do not need to be saved to your hard drive. And then hosted somewhere. Just copy and paste them into the post. Posted Image

Smiley's are fun, but we all do need to watch out for any that could be considered objectionable. :thumbsup:

Please be wary of any smiley's (emoticons) downloads. I suggest that you stay away from these.
They could be riddled with nasty pests.

Thanks Scarlett, Starbuck, and ~overkill~!!

I will check these out.

Scarlett, I'm glad you confirmed my thoughts on the downloads. I did see some of these searching around and noticed one that would intall a new search bar and would allow third party input?? and it seemed a little fishy. That's why I thought I would ask around for some safe ones. I was not sure if you could just copy and paste and they would still be animate. Some of these emoticons are so hilarious.

Again thanks,

diego88

Your welcome. Happy to help.

When I say "Copy and Paste" I am meaning copying and pasting the image code (tag) into the body of the text. Not copying and pasting the image itself.

Gives you this. Posted Image

Scarlett,

I did misunderstand your copy and paste and now tried to add the way you just explained. I entered "Posted Image" in an e-mail to myself but all I saw was this again "Posted Image".

I do not know too much about this subject so I'm sure I have messed up your explanation. Sorry. Is this only for when you are creating web pages or should I be able to send this in an e-mail?

Thanks :thumbsup:

As it is, I was a bit confused myself. It would of helped if I would of looked at the help section. Posted Image
Do not worry, we will get this figured out soon.

How to use Smileys in Email

Using Smileys in a Email is very simple.  All you do is put your mouse over the graphic, do a copy, then in your email do a paste.  While most email systems allow you to add graphics to your email unfortunatly their are a few out there that do not.  But this will work for the most common ones like Outlook, Outlook express, Yahoo, etc.


Is Direct Linking allowed

Yep.  This is one of the few sites that does allow direct linking.  I have unlimited bandwith with Yahoo so direct link all you like.


This is very cool. The site allows direct copy and paste. I was worried about doing so. Which could be seen as bandwidth theft. Which is frowned upon. With the exception of a free image hosting site. So in a nutshell. Best Smiley's not only supplies the smiley graphics. They also host them.

This is a very good discussion, since I use my notebook for work mostly. i am just getting to notice Smiley's in various forums.
And Scarlett, I have always notest the great finesse in your signature are these acheivable by a relative Noob to this Topic as it certainly does enhance and make posts more interesting.

I would appreciate comments and where one should go to read about the topic and how to begin learning on how to do something creative like this.

I would appreciate comments, thankyou. :thumbsup:
