For some reason every time I go to add a smiley at the end of a sentence,it's putting it at the beginning instead,2nd time I try it works.Done this several times to check it,making sure the cursor is in the right place and have left a space at the end too.
Any body else having this problem?

Testing. ^_^

Seems to be working for me. :biggrin:

What browser are you using? I'm using Chrome.

Using IE7,tried Chrome last night when things were running slow,certainly faster but can't remember if the smilies were right with it,will have to re-try.
Funnily enough,during the post above the smiley worked 1st time:angry:

It's a known issue with IE that should be fixed shortly. A new software upgrade is due out in a few weeks.

There's also another IE niggle where the cursor doesn't appear when replying; to "get around" it you have to click a smiley, then delete it, then your editing cursor should appear.

Oh, and have you considered upgrading your browser to IE8 - whilst the forums work okay with IE7, they work better with IE8 ... :rolleyes:

Cheers,
Shaun :smile:
