  • Is this a bug or expected behavior? (Re: Smilies)

    So I had a smiley on my forum for a while called :ahhh: for some time.
    More recently I was asked my mobile users to make a few "3 letter combo: smilies they could enter while using their cell phone keyboards where making colons ( was hard for them. So I made a handful of popular smileys into these 3 letter combos:
    like jjj, fff, yyy, and hhh.

    hhh works fine... but :ahhh: now bugs out... it displays the hhh smiley surrounded by partial HTML code of a broken <img> tag... very ugly looking. I realize this is an unusual situation but seems like something that should be addressed. This doesn't seem to be an issue in VB 4.0.8.

    Odd. Are you saying this problem occurs with 3.8 and not 4.0?

      Exactly... it happens in my 3.8 live forum, but not on my 4.0.8 test forum... I made the hhh and :ahhh: on the test forum and it works fine -:ahhhh: is always displayed... I didn't think it would be since the code seems so similar... But I have over 400 smilies on the live board and only 12 or 13 on the test install so I can't rule out someone else isn't at play here.

        Nevermind... with my mods disabled it works as expected... must be a mod doing something... no big deal.

          I'm presuming that hhh displays a heart? If you've not assigned LLL, try that. Tell the mobile peeps that it's for "love".

            No, actually hhh displays this: which for some reason is called "Hoos" on my forum... I don't know why it's called "Hoos" I assume its name dates back to before my forum broke away from the original forum and this was one of the original smileys they used.

            I ended up changing :ahhh: to :ahh: for now... it isn't an oft used smiley.
