Grrr this is such an old issue that seems to have never been solved in the main phpbb instalation.....
I have a great mod that I paid for to get made that allows you to create smilie catagories IE mad, angry, drinking, yahoo, msn, fighting, etc etc ...
It works on my old site even with a wysiwig installed BUT on a new site I am working on it was bugged in IE 7 and 8 but works in firefox. I have now set up 3 test sites all with the same issue so it is not me fualting the install it is the more smilies code not setting into the post.
Anyone have the fix yet ?
I also tried "waiting for the smilies to load to see if I just waited for all smilies to load would it post into the message area, but that did not work either.
This only works on firefox and I assume any ff engines but as far as IE it does not work.
If there is a thread , blogpost, fix anywhere please link me up
meanwhile guess Ill go googling.
ps the version of phpbb I am using now is 3.0.5
Ugg im a t0tal newb again ...... 2 years off cant remember jack ... time to get to it
