    Your "profile picture" is now called an 'Avatar'. So, you go to "Forum Actions" "Edit Profile" "Edit Avatar" (on the left)

    Smileys are in the tool formatting bar above your edited text. It's a button that, well, has a smiley on it. :p

    PLEASE NOTE ALL

    A very important section in your Profile is the Profile Privacy section. It defaults to "Everyone" being able to see everything that is yours. I suggest you change it to at least "Registered Members" to keep outsiders from reading your stuff.

    Cindy, there doesn't appear to be a way to ADD tags to a post in the EDIT process. Once you post, the tag field goes away never to be seen again.:(

    I see one now on my post but for the life of me, STILL don't see a line with smilies on it.

    Tex, that is NOT on my line...I PROMISE, there are no smileys on my line. There must be a setting I have missed.

    Maybe "someone" who knows how to use these elusive smilies can show me at the M&G???!!

    Fix For No Smilies

    Aha!

    Look at this ... View attachment 7

    Go to "Settings" (at the far upper right next to Log Out)
    Go to "General Settings" (on the left panel)
    Go to "Miscellaneous Options" (scroll way down the page)

    If you have it set on "Basic Editor" then no smilies.
    If you have it set to either of the others then smilies.
    :D:):cool::approve:

    Ok Tex I found it. I was not going down the page far enough. :approve: Thank you, thank you, and thank you. Ok, next question; when or why would you use the "Go Advanced" button?
     
  19. TexasClodhopper

    TexasClodhopper Senior Member

    The "Go Advanced" is just another editor with a few more ways to present your post to the forum.

    As long as you have your editor set to to at least the "Standard Editor", you'll have most of everything you need in the "Quick Reply" area at the bottom of each page.

    Ahh! I think I have it all figured out now. Thanks for all of your help Tex. Oh by the way, you will have to take all of the pictures for at the M & G. :approve:
