Emoticons are those fun little smiley faces and frowns and you can put in your post to express emotion with an icon. You may have noticed they don’t always behave. Sandy did, and here’s our reply …

I can’t figure out how to make the emoticon appear in the right spot; tips?


My people have been waiting for someone to bring this up … Without getting too techinical, this is a drawback of the default image class used in this website’s stylesheet conflicting with the SimpleForum plugin’s stylesheet.

By default, all images will "float" left. like this. Embarassed This means they will align to the left. But there is a relatively easy fix, if you’re not afraid of little HTML …

After inserting the desired emoticon, click the HTML editor (simpleforum html editor button

) button. Find the code that displays the emoticon and add the image class "nofloat" as follows …

<img src="wp-content/plugins/simple-forum/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-laughing.gif" class="nofloat" border="0" alt="Laughing" title="Laughing" />

Then the emoticon will then display inline like this, Laughing where it is supposed to be! Untill we figure out how to make our stylesheets play nice together this is the only workaround. The same fix goes for photos to!

We hope this helps and apologize for any inconvenience.

I haven’t used emoticons here but this is really helpful to know.  Would removing the "float: left" from the stylesheet completely mess up the layout of the forum? 

Another more complicated option would be to find the code for the text editor that generates the image code and have the "nofloat" class hard coded into it to apply to any image generated through the editor.  Most text editors are javascript based (not sure if this one is) and finding the right part of the code can be tricky at best.

It wouldn’t necessarily mess with the forum layout, but it would affect all the other pages, the blog and its entire history. Worth looking into though. Thanks for the tip.

The SimpleForum plugin that runs these forums has it’s own stylesheet but the WordPress theme style sheet seems to overinde it when it comes to images.
