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 ;)

(after) to the url - I didn't know that folk uploaded smilies to image hosts
.

It turns this:

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.
