Is that the right word? Those little awesome faces and oictures such as :hug whatever that express all kinds of emotions- are those still available on mdc? if not, will they be at some point?
Hi, they are still here....it's just a bit different now. When you're in the editor, look for the smilie face icon at the top:
Click it and you'll get a pop-up box filled with MDC smilies. The main difference is now that each time you want to place a smilie, you'll need to open up the smilie box and select your smilie. Hopefully, this feature will be enhanced in the future, but for now, it's what we have to work with.
If you're interested in typing smilie code directly into your editor box rather than having to click the smilie box each time, you can try the software's BB Code editor explained here: http://www.mothering.com/community/wiki/b-b-code-editor
