Default Short route to star ratings (for bak)

In reply to bak's post here:

The easy way to do star ratings, if you're using the Quick Reply box, is to use the asterisk for stars you want to be filled in and zeros for those you want to be blank.

So, ***OO (but zeros instead of O's) comes out .

Or, you can click on Go Advanced below the Quick Reply box and you will be able to select the star ratings from amongst the smilies on the right of the text box.

I know I'm sort of meant to be a sort of techie but...

am I the only one who doesn't know the smilie code? I can just about do happy and maybe one or two others if I quote people but as for the rest, Kein Ahnung. Sometimes I would love to do rolling eyes or something, as that says evertything you want to say without resorting to literary cliché. So can anyone help?

If you 'Go Advanced' with the little button on the reply box at the end of each thread, Bak, you can jusr click the faces and them pop up into your post. Otherwise, try some of these:

;-)
:roll:
:-?
:-?
:-D
:lol:

Don't anyone forget the Palimp rule about excessive smilie usage meaning instant bannification...

Are you using the Quick Reply box, bak? Wavid's absolutely right, of course, but if, instead of Quick Reply, you just click on the little box at the bottom left underneath the last message - it's marked postreply - in those two colours, you'll find all those smilie options available to you immediately. (You'll need to use Wavid's Go Advanced route if you want to add smilies when editing a post, of course.)

Obviously missing something here. If I click on Post Reply or Go Advanced I get the smilies that I can put next to the title of the whole message but not in the post itself. Do I need to change my settings or something?

Bak - it might be that, yes. In which case:

1. Click on User CP at the top left of your screen.
2. Under Control Panel, click on Edit Options
3. Scroll down to Miscellaneous Options at the bottom of that page.
4. Click on the Message Editor Interface menu arrow.
5. Choose Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG editing.
6, Click on Save Changes.

That should do it. While you're on that Edit Options page, you can customise other settings too. Although I've found that ticking the instant email notification box makes no difference - I still don't get 'em.
