    I’ve been involved in a number of SIG forums over the years and moderated for some of them for good measure.
    With that said, this site has one of the most convoluted systems for starting a new thread I’ve seen yet, requiring multiple navigation exercises in order to make a new posting.
    If we want to see more activity, can I suggest we create a one-click button that takes the user to a post creation page? :good:

    Hi RH,

    The forum ‘engine’ needs to be able to display the emoji as a graphic and to do this it needs information about the graphic that I suspect it’s not getting.

    The easiest way to do this is to simply feed the forum’s ‘engine’ with the location code of the emoji you want (together with all its info) using the IMG tag at the top of the message window – like the example below (I’ve had to add some extra ‘#’ characters to stop the system displaying the emoji rather than the code – so ignore any occurrences of ‘#’

    <#img src=”#http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/ernaehrung/food-smiley-004.gif” alt=”” /#>

    What you get is this ……….

    Does that make sense ………..?

    @Rudolph Hukker if you mean the emojis at the bottom of the post boxes then yes, when you click on them they come up as words but when you submit the post they turn into the emoji – I have just put three in here and the words are showing so when I submit it they will turn into these – (she says hopefully)
    :good: :yes: :rose:

    Thank you both,
    Bob did get a bit carried away and I was just off to open a bottle of Medicament Ecossaise to see me through his procedure.
    And then up popped Witchy Poo with a more sober remedy, so have put the cork back in :good: :yahoo: :rose: B-) :yes:
    Gone a bit OTT methinks

    It is with deep regret that I must bid my fellow writers on this site a fond adieu, for tomorrow morning at 9 am when I check my Euromillions I shall be away on my toes to pastures new, Tahiti perhaps or Antigua or indeed if the win is big enough Blackpool, ( I hope it isn’t). I may, if I can find a cardboard box cheap enough, take my 4 footed ginger haired nincompoop with me, (smuggled of course as I don’t intend paying her fare), oh and I suppose ‘er in doors as well, not club class mind!! Whilst you lot are struggling with day to day living I shall be sunning myself at the St. James’s Club in Antigua whilst my erstwhile 4 footed friend brushes the sand off my feet. Bliss…sigh :bye:

    The Dead Horse.
    A young man named Donald bought a horse from a farmer for $250. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day.

    The next day, the farmer drove up to Donald’s house and said, “Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.”
    Donald replied, “Well, then just give me my money back.”
    The farmer said, “Can’t do that. I went and spent it already.”
    Donald said, “Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.”
    The farmer asked, “What ya gonna do with him?”
    Donald said, “I’m going to raffle him off.”
    The farmer said, “You can’t raffle off a dead horse!”
    Donald said, “Sure I can, Watch me. I just won’t tell anybody he’s dead.”
    A month Later, the farmer met up with Donald and asked, “What happened with that dead horse?”
    Donald said, “I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at five dollars apiece and made a profit of $2495.”
    The farmer said, “Didn’t anyone complain?”
    Donald said, “Just the guy who won. So I gave him his five dollars back.”

    Donald has now moved into the White House.

    Dear friends of Normandy,

    I’m journalist for the Austrian Public Radio in Vienna, I’m preparing a reportage about Bayeux and Brexit, Bayeux as an important symbol for the Britains, a central point in the British History. I know from all my trips to the Normandy that a lot of you are appreciating to live there. I want to come to Bayeux in the middle of april and would like to get in contact with some of in Bayeux or the region for small interviews. About: why do you have chosen this place to live(work), how is your life there with French people, what do you think/feel about Brexit etc. Is anybody of you interested to meet me? It won’t cost you a lot of time, it’s for radio and not complicated.

    Looking forward to answers

    Greetings from Vienna

    Karin Koller
