    maybe I am too stupid, but I do not find anywhere a dropbox for smilies in the textbox. Where do I find the smilies to put them into my text, i.e. in this posting?

    I am using an IPad2, in case this has something to do with it...

    If you are on a mobile device, you will use the BB code editor, not the WYSIWYG editor. The BB code editor has no toolbars.

    mmmhhh, is the ipad a mobile device? screen resolution of 1024x768 and 10 inch screen is not really a smartphone size...

    How can I as a user turn this mobile device enforcement off?

    And how can I use smilies with a BB code editor?

    IOS = Mobile device since its running Safari Mobile.
    Its a limitation that's being worked on if I recall.

    is there by accident at least already a mod available to fix this?

    and looking at the marketshare of apple tablets and iphones, would it not make sense to show below the text box some easy codes to insert manually smilies?

    It is disabled for mobile devices by design, it just doesn't work, where as the bbcode editor works on mobile devices. There are plugins that add buttons to the bbcode editor, you might want to look at that.
