    Is it possible to disable the emoticons so that they can't randomly appear if what you're typing happens to match the HTML code for a particular emoticon?

    Are you referring to disable smiles in text as well? If so, you can do this advance settings when you reply to a PM.

    I made a post, not a reply to a PM, which included a picture. The photo credit link was disabled by a smiley that popped up in the middle of the link because part of the link( colon followed by a capital P) matched the HTML code for a particular smiley.

    Did you try to go to advanced settings with your reply in your settings? See of you can disable the smileys from text there by editing your post.

    I tried that and the entire link disappeared from the post in the app,leaving an uncredited picture but the correct link appeared in the website version of the post.

    I finally found another link that worked properly without solving the original problem.

    Yes, I think that the forum using the browser will give you more advance options where the app is lacking.

    Maybe the forum administrators could address this problem and provide an off switch for smileys and emoticons.

    As a workaround you can leave a space between elements of a smiley. There is a limit to what admin can do because the forum software is built by a separate company.

    You might get more control if you download the forum runner app and run the forums from there. I don't know because I haven't done it. Also, tapatalk may help. I know some people here use it.

    Smileys/emoticons will no longer work if you add a space to it. Like this : ) compared to this :) ... Hopefully you can see what I mean.

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

    It's the workaround we are trying to give him if using the app, using the web browser will allow for the links to show.

    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?

    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.
    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.

    Now the links I post in the safari version of the post read as straight text and are not active links. The link does,however,work in the app version of the post.
    Here's a screenshot showing the inactive link.
