I see as a poster, that I can disable the smile faces, but is there anyway as a viewer to do it?
Certain characters, when followed by the end paragraph, will come up with the wink emoticon. Like if there's an end quote and an end of parenthesis in a line of Perl code which is what I just saw:
open (INF, "<log_file>";
open (INF, "<log_file>");
I copied and pasted the first line from the printer-friendly version, which included the emoticon, and what resulted in the pasting was the loss of the end parenthesis, which is what turned into the emoticon. I then typed in the second line, and the end parenthesis resulted in the wink emoticon above.
I was going to suggest using the printer friendly version (left side of bottom bar) to view the code, but that's obviously not the answer.
However, you can click "Post Reply" and the thread is on the reply page without smileys - just scroll down.
I also try to catch the code posts that were created with smilies enabled.
The owner of the post can turn that option on from the "owner edit" box as well by editing the post.
Would it be possible to set things up so the Scripting Forum has "disable emoticons" as the default posting option, while the other forums remain the same? The only time it seems to be a major problem is with all the myriad semi-colons and parenthesis in the perl scripts.
