but why is it only you  <$1alt="" title="" onresizestart="return false;" id="smiley__$2" style="padding: 0 3px 0 3px;" />
I have no clue ?

As soon as you quote someone else's post that has smileys, etc. in their post, it converts it to display in WYSIWYG in the editor because you have that option enabled.

Not a problem if you haven't got that option set (default), you don't get the code.
but why is it only you  <$1alt="" title="" onresizestart="return false;" id="smiley__$2" style="padding: 0 3px 0 3px;" />
Without that setting, I would have to do my own coding for the pictures etc that I post.
It wasn't a problem till the return of the forum. So let them fix the forum problem.
Sorry.

Not if you had a half decent browser ;D

I use an add-on for firefox bbcodeXtra, it has a shed full of options to input code tags, etc. Might be worth a look to see if there is an extension to do this in chrome.

I wonder if in the reply window, checking the don't show smileys option would resolve this.

I don't see an option to disable smileys. I did activate the quick reply which helps somewhat. Will not know till I attempt to post something more complicated. :)

@David,
I've installed bbcodeXtra in Firefox and will give it a try. Nothing available in Chrome.  :'(

Generally I only use the Quick Reply (because of the bbcodeXtra add-on), you need to click the preview button then click on the Attachments and other Options is where the disable smileys is, as in my image.

If you use the Regular Reply button, then click on the Attachments and other Options - that should give the option - I believe once checked the option remains set.

Hi Bob!

That's great. A BMW + 500.000 US$, that sounds like 'you are a millionaire' (after you've got everything).

Looks like it didn't fare too well after being driven from that trade show in Greenland.  ;)

This time, I don't know how much money this will enhance my bank account.
Maybe I should ask that question first ???
