But his problem is if you add a space to avoid the smiley, the link wouldn't work.

Thank's I'll try this workaround next time the problem arises.Originally Posted by skimonkey
If I may add ... there is a way to disable smilies when using the app (well, for Tapatalk for sure, though I think it can be done with the IPF app, also).
You'll have to select the option to open the post in Safari. Then, at the bottom of the post, select "Go Advanced." At the bottom of the page, underneath where you'd input text, there is a line where you can disable smilies.
It's a bit of a workaround, but once you submit the post, you can hit the Back button to go back into the "regular" part of the app. It's how I had made the post for the bookmarklets (cause that thing would have been full of smilies!). And, since I do all my posting from the app - had to figure out something.
Hope this helps for the next time.
That's right, Marilyn, i keep forgetting that you can get to the safari version of IPF from the app. I don't use the app very much, but it certainly does work to get to the advanced settings.
Thank you for bridging the app to the web version.
Exactly where do you go to open the post in safari? I can't see anything about opening a post anywhere,let alone safari. Do you have a screenshot that would help?Originally Posted by Mickey330
Never mind,I figured how to open the post in safari. I can have the post appear and work properly in the safari version of the post,but if I view it in the app version,the smilies appear.Originally Posted by scifan57
Someone didn't think of the consequences of adding smilies in the current manner. Any text on the page that happens to match the HTML code for a smilie gets displayed as a smilie.
