Not All Smilieys Converting From Text To Image
#1
I came across this a couple of times. Either clicking on the "Smilies" sometimes only produces and text equivalent text ... at least, on this system. So I thought to go through all of them (methodically) to root out possible candidates for correction. The "TEXT" ones have spaces between each character so they don't auto-convert. Also, the images jump back to text as I edit here. It generally clears up on preview or post. Sometimes (It happened) here, auto-convert throws in an extra colon and then the smiley doesn't show (or the wrong smiley). Also,  I put "??" for non-standard smiley text, which I don't know. Others I'm grabbing from Cool Smileys: List of Text Emoticons – The Ultimate Resource .

Ah! An actual table! Great!

Okay, let me go through clicking on each smiliey and see how that goes (because I'm still not getting "Cool" to show):

Smile 
Wink 
Big Grin 
Tongue 
Rolleyes 
Angry 
Sad 
Undecided 
Ok 
Sick 
Blush 
Confused 
Dodgy 
Heart 
Sleepy 
Cry 
Happy 
Money 
Nothing2say 
Shocked 
Kiss 
Eek 
Scorn 
Thrilled 
Eyedrop 
Woo 
Devil 
Huh 
Shy 
 8) 

Okay, while still in "edit" mode, 2 clicked-on smileys ("Heart" and "Cool") resulted as text, not image.

Next I'll "preview" in this edit and see how it redraws . . .

* PREVIEW POST *

. . . Ah-ha! "Heart" shows as image in the preview and now also shows as image in the edit. The "Cool" image, however, doesn't show in the preview and still doesn't show in the edit.

Keep in mind that in editing, any adding or deleting of characters near a smiley often "breaks" the smiley and the graphic disappears. Sometime it immediately reappears but with an added ":" at the start (notice that in my 1st post). Sometimes it leaves the text behind only to fix itself on the preview or post. Obviously the edit code is not completely debugged.

Finally, how does it post? . . .

* POST REPLY *

EDIT:
So, the "Heart" remains fixed in the post but it's back as text in this edit. "Cool" remains text in both.
