Lack of interest Disable smilies in post


Active member
Just saw a post here where someone posted a XenForo phrase (XenForo: Something) and it slapped a smiley into the middle of it. Realized that I don't think there's an option to disable smiley parsing. Pretty sure this simple tweak would help coders here and on other xF forums.

You can disable smilies (and BB code) in specific parts of a post using plain tags:
[plain]:) [b]test[/b][/plain]

Necro'ing this thread just because I believe that instead of enclosing parts of your post using the plain tag, it would be better for users to have a checkbox to disable displaying smilies somewhere near the submit button.
