    Check our Help section for BB Codes. Alternatively you can use the icons above the post box - there's one there for images.

    Is there a way to make the smilies not appear? I'd like to do a simple colon + capital D smile, but it turns into the big grin: :D

    Usually a colon has a double space after it or at least a single one, so that should stop the Grin appearing. Putting them together is an automatic grin sorry.

    Rich: Diamonds!!

    Yeah, a space fixes it.

    But if you are trying to make your own, then no, they automatically appear when summoned. ;)

    A lot has changed over the past 18 years, but I'm very glad this thread is still helpful.

    It was a great idea back then, and it still is today.

    Exactly! It has saved a lot of unnecessary embarassment over the years.

    There is a list of BB Codes here in our Help section. For spoilers the code is {spoiler}Spoiler here{/spoiler} but replace the { } with [ ].

    You can use the image icon in the post box (to the right of the smiley image). Click it and you will be prompted to enter an image url. Note that the image has to be online somewhere to do this.

    Alternatively I have a 'Snipping tool' I can cut from my computer and put it directly here when it's not online. Its a free application my son put on my computer called 'Snipping Tool' and I can put photos up directly here without using the Image Icon ;)

    Thanks for all your help, @LAJ_FETT and @Adalia-Durron!

    [​IMG]

    I think I was finally able to do it. A round of sarcastic Hermione applause for myself. [face_party]

    Thanks for all your help again, you two! Couldn't have done it without you!

    Actually, Snipping Tool is built into Windows since Vista. Windows 10 is replacing it with a better app called Snip & Sketch (which was added to Windows 10 a couple years ago), and Snipping Tool will be removed in a future update.
