    1. How do I use non BCUK smileys in threads, do I need web space to upload them to ? If I have got space how do I do it ?

    2. How do I link a word to a web page rather than pasting the link itself ?

    upload the smiley to a picture hosting page like photobucket, and paste in the same way as you do for a picture

    when you use the insert link icon (a globe with a chain link below it) you get a box that you type/paste your link into. when you hit 'OK' the link appears in the message text, but half of it is highlighted - this is what is visible on the message - overwrite it with the word / phrase you want to use ;)

    Right click the picture and copy image location.

    Then in the advanced posting window click the little picture icon, square with mountains, and paste the location into the dialogue box.

    For smilies I just copy and paste the url directly into the reply (or o.p). On occasion I may need to add [​IMG] (after) to the url - I didn't know that folk uploaded smilies to image hosts [​IMG].

    It turns this:

    [​IMG]

    Into this:

    I just host a few on my own web space so I don't have to go hunting for them.

    As you say you can just paste them from wherever you find them.

    Have you got all the smillies and text tools etc though ST ?

    If not you need to change your editor to standard or enhanced

    User CP
    Edit Options
    Down to the bottom, Miscellaneous Options

    That's yer problem, check out your user control panel (User CP) as Shewie says.

    Must type faster.
