    Default Question about Emoticom Icons

    When I want to write a post and click on the "emoticom icon button" the box opens up with a selection. However, I am not able to drag any icon from the original pop up box within that selection. It won't let me. I have to click on the "more" button that opens a larger selection of icons, and then I have no trouble dragging what I want into a post. Is that normal? Do others have the same problem?

    Clicking on the smilie in the menu brings up 'Insert a smiley/more' & you just click on the required one - but make sure that the cursor is in the correct place first!

    That seems to work for me anyway - good luck!

    I haven't had any luck with the smilies. When I click on them, all I get are empty square boxes.

    It seems like this is mostly happening in Safari. But I sometimes use Google Chrome when I'm on my desktop.

    I see. I'm using Firefox and with the help of Lpp, I realized what I had been stupidly doing!

    My 'smilies' still don't work. Also the iPad add-ons don't work either. They come with the IPad keyboard.

    I was wondering what the latest was since it was mentioned prior. Thought it must have been rectified by now. Obviously it wasn't.
    Sorry to hear that.

    Oh dear, kumquat - maybe it's a setting?

    The thing is, I can use my smilies on other things, like 'Words with Friends' and 'Face Book' or any email. Just not here! Very frustrating. Also, it worked at first- when we changed over, but not now.

    My ipad is HD, really nice! and the smilies that come with it are adorable. Lots of pictures. flowers and little sailboats... I'm bummed. Plus it's portable.

    No, it doesn't work at all. Only on the desktop. When I use the alternate keyboard provided on ipad (with smilies) all it shows are little square boxes. And when I use the BN ones, same thing. One thing I haven't done is go to a website to download some. I did that long ago and the advertising became a problem.

    Let's see if I can put a smiley in here now Yeah! They seem to be working again! It didn't at first. I still can't use the ones on my iPad. I googled it and it said the device you send to has to be equipped to receive 'emoticons'. Or emojis.
