To enter the smiley faces in your posts or the shout text, enter the UBB code associated with the smiley you want to appear.
If you are not sure what the UBB code is for the smiley, go to one of the posts, click 'Reply' and then on 'Switch to Full Screen'
In the upper left hand corner you will see a big smiley face. Click on him and it will bring up the menu of the smileys we have loaded. Simply place your mouse, or "hover" over the one you want to know the code for and it will show.
In posts you can simply position your cursor where you want the smiley to appear, click on the smiley, and it will be there.
For example to get
you would type in (<colon>whip<colon> Ex-->>) : whip : all with lower case and no spaces.
Then simply hit enter as would would for any other text and it will show up in the shout box. You can also use the code for general posts once you start to remember them, it becomes easier than switching to full screen mode and clicking through the smileys.
Occasionally I made add new ones, so pay attention and watch for them as well... They can be alot of fun to add to your posts and shout box entries.
