Posting problems
« on: December 24, 2017, 03:41:16 PM »
I have tried to access the icons. Click on several of them and they do not show.
I have tried the font size, Change color to no avail.

What am I doing wrong????
Headed for church shortly. Be back before bed time.
Thanks for the help ahead of time.

When you click on the icon the picture itself will not show up just the the text. For example when you use the fist icon, the blue face thumbs up, you will see  :th_thicon_idea. If the text is showing up the icon will be there when you post. Hope that helps.

That is the way I am used to. :th_thicon_idea stuff like that never shoes up on mine so I never get the icon. Changing color in the "Change Color" dropdown does not do anything in my post either.

Hopefully Domineaux or Shipwreck will help you as that’s the best I can do. May be awhile as they both have families. Don’t know if this will help but check and see if your java script is on.
Merry Christmas anyway. :th_thicon_idea:

What browser are you using to access the forum? A computer, phone?

I gotta be honest.. I never change the font. But, I do use the smiley icons all the time...  :P

I only tried to chg font to see if it was working and maybe the icons weren't.
I am on a computer. Pretty old. Don't know how to do any of this on a phone.

Well, your browser probably needs to be updated to the newest version, first
