This has been noticed by several people here... the little red "evil smileys" don't seem to be working for some reason. The board seems to be reacting only to the ": )" and not the entire thing.

It's being looked into.

Gothic-Rose, any suggestions?

I think I see the problem. Try changing the ">" in the smilie shortcuts that use this character to something else...

I am pretty certain the script may be ignoring that particular character because html has been disallowed.

I tested this by posting all the emoticons that contain that character and all returned the same result.

I hope this helps fix the problem :) If not then I'll dig deeper and see what i can come up with.

It seems to have done the trick.

She also runs an iB based message board, so I figured she would have possibly run into this same problem, hence my asking her.

I have encountered similar problems with other perl scripts. This is because I usually edit the scripts to disallow html input as an added security measure. I had actually noticed that IB will ignore (or remove) any standard html coding from a post when html is turned off. Which is always handy for added precautions :)

It took a little while to iron out the wrinkles after I installed IB, but luckily most were only minor issues that were easily rectified. This aside, the script itself is great :)

I was just wondering, why do you disallow HTML? Ive always been a harmless comp user, can you do BAD THINGS(*gasp*) with it or something?
Excuse my ignorance...Im human

You can do all manner of BAD THINGS &tm; with html... sneaky backdoor spy/adware installations, porn cycles, trojans and virii...

Plus the board has code to post images and links, which is all that is really necessary.

I have a problem with several other smiles also (they most certainly will work now when I post this message, just to make me look bad ;) and these smiles are:
:! & :|

Yeah, I've noticed that.

Eventually we might test and see what other characters will work for those instead. It's kind of hard trying to find out which combinations will work that aren't going to be too similar to normal word combinations that will turn parts of sentences or words into a smiley when not needed.

Currently I'm doing a bunch of other stuff, so smileys are the last thing on my mind at the moment.
