You may see them sometimes even in Internet Explorer 6 when in a thread.. But IE6 isn't supported well anymore and is full of security risks . Nearly all major sites no longer actively create fixes for IE6 compatibility. (including Google and YouTube)
You can create emoticons by typing out a colon : dash - and paren ) next to each other.
Using the Old Word Codes: Note-if you make them this way-using them too early in the post means the word will show up on the main page in the snippet that shows there
Type the following without the spaces between each symbol/word:
Now that you have had twelve or so days to get to know the new exchanges-let me know what else we can do to help make them better.
We darkened the font. We definitely know you want emoticons (smileys) and signatures back. We know you want more discussions on a page and easier navigation.(What does that look like to you?) But-what else might help you really love exchanges?
Tell me in as much detail as you can what things still trip you up, what changes you want to see made. (Navigation changes? Which ones? Too much white space? Not enough? Better search?)
I really want and need your ideas. I am making a list and checking it twice-so we can work on getting rid of the naughty and make it nice.
I can't promise anything other than the fact that you will be heard. I want you to know YOU, each of you, is important to us.
If there is anything you don't know how to do yet and it isn't in the Exchange FAQ -let me know that too. I am here to help.View Thread
All my stuff is smushed together. I can't see anything. I'll check back in a bit to see if anyone has anwsered otherwise I won't be back on for a few weeks so if you don't hear from me that's why. This say post a tip but I had to post wherever it would let me. View Thread
If you want to include a picture within a post-not the persona/profile/avatar image that appears next to the member name on their post each time-you need to have the picture available already uploaded online.
If you have a picture already uploaded online-like on Flickr, Facebook, Picasa, Picapp, Photobucket, a personal website, etc-then you just use the url for that picture.
Be sure you own the picture or have permission to use it (There are some free use picture sites so if you want a generic shamrock or beach or whatever out there but they will ask you to link back to their site. Please follow any rules the picture hosting site requires)
Once you have located a picture you want to use-find out the URL. For the example, I will use a picture here on WebMD:
To include that in the post, I click the photo icon at the top of this box (it is the one that looks like a blue square in a poloroid-sort of) I paste that entire url into the pop up box and here is that picture: View Thread
Click My Exchange Profile. (left sidebar) or My Account (Top Right corner)
The click Change my picture (If you chose My Exchange Profile) or Click Edit next to profile picture. (If you chose to upload using "My Account")
Click Select Image
Then browse on your computer for the file you want to use.
It then will give you the option to crop or to use a portion of a larger picture if you want.
Use your mouse to move the gray overlay over the part of the picture you want to use. The darker squares at the corners of the dotted lines can be moved to stretch or shrink the portion of the picture you want to use.
Did you know you can sort discussions for easier reading on the new exchanges?
When you come to the board-click Discussions on the left side of the screen. Then you can sort by "Most Recent" or "Most Popular" (know that right now Most popular includes some very old threads from the old message boards-we are working on getting that fixed)View Thread
