    Thought I should start a new thread regarding the sudden inability to display emoticons in my posts. For some reason I have only just noticed that when I try to insert an emoticon, or smiley as I usually call them, all that is displayed on the actual finished post is a small blank square where the emoticon should be, doh! Also when I look at the thread I started regarding Usage, where I began the post with a question face, it just shows the word question outlined.
    I have tried a hard reset, uninstalled the shortcut for my browser, reinstalled it, check I have emoji keyboard installed (which, by the way, I hadn't before yet was able to insert emoticons on the forum posts). I just cannot understand why this has happened all of a sudden. Even if I input the corresponding text, i.e. :) for an emoticon, it still doesn't work! Looks like
    When I look at the emoticons at the foot of this post whilst typing, all I see is the radio button and at the side the emoticon in text, such as Post, Thumbs down, Wink and so on.
    I am in for a frustrating day :(

    I have just noticed that in Posting Permissions, You may edit your posts, the HTML code is off.

    That's just in website view. When looking at them with the app, your smilies are visible. :)
    And I see that my smiley is here as well in website view. (I used the keyboard to produce it.)

    Thanks J. A., looks like it is a web site issue.

    Is there any way of turning on the HTML code in Posting Permissions? I feel this has something to do with it and cannot understand why it has suddenly been disabled. Do we have to ask admin?
    Just a thought.

    Just noticed Smilies are shown as 'on'. Yet no Smilies still. Very strange.

    Hi Mike.....yes we do seem to be having an emoticon issue right now on the Forum and our tech guys have been informed of this. Hopefully they'll have this issue fixed real soon......it's just not the same without our Smileys! ;)

    They are visible on the app for me!
