Why arn't the posticons and emoticons showing up?
I thought there was something wrong with my board, but I see that people here are putting smiles in their posts, as if they are doing a smiley face. All I see are the words and symbols.

I do see on this board the emoticons to the right of the board but I don't see them when someone tries to post them. I don't see the emoticons at all on my board.

Re: Why arn't the posticons and emoticons showing up?
Thank you for the help Nickdisk. I am using Mozilla Firefox for a browser. After reading your questions, I checked out IE but I had the same problem with it so now we know it isn't the browser.

I have Norton Internet Security and anti-virus. I tried disabling it and did a check on my board and guess what.....IT WORKED.

Thank you for your suggestions. I don't know why I didn't think of those questions and try those options. I appreciate the help!

:wink:

Re: Why arn't the posticons and emoticons showing up?
Ahh, glad it worked! :smile: Due to people stealing our bandwidth, i'm afraid we had to disbale remote loading, which means that some users who use firewalls like Norton Internet Security 2003 might get red x's instead of images when trying to load images hosted on our server :smile:

If you use the firewall Norton Internet Security 2003 try following these steps which should make images viewable again:

*Go to Options, and select Internet Security.

*Go to the Web Contents tab.

*Find bbboy.net in the list of websites on the left and highlight it.

*Global settings should be the tab on top, if not, select it.

*Go to the second category, Information about visited sites, and uncheck the "Use default settings" box

*Click the radio button next to Permit.

*Click OK.

That should take care of any site at BbBoards, regardless of server. :smile:
