    pure asci bbcode is :yuck: shows as the according smilie in the editor windows

    then after sending:


    according to someone knowledgeable this is

    <img src="styles/default/xenforo/clear.png" class="mceSmilieSprite mceSmilie39" alt=":yuck:" title="Yuck :yuck:">

    So it's displaying three times? I shortly had the smilie manager installed, but uninstalled it. Tried deleting all smilies both backend and hard, importing new, and this persists.

    spent hours on this, taking a break soon but hope someone might be able to enlighten me! :(

    When you say it shows 3 times, do you mean the image is repeated 3 separate times?

    I only see one "yuck" smilie. The other two are different... how is is displaying 3 times and your image is showing 3 different smilies?

    That's true, it's not showing the :yuck: three times, but you see the result of the entry. Sorry Sheldon, I spent hours with this yesterday was about to cry (not really) and wasn't clear.

    Do you need more examples?

    I select the love smilie. The code then shows :love: and the display is

    Would it help to open up an area for you to check it out as guests?

    Are you talking about the title text which is shown when hovering over a smiley?

    Yes, that's the only way to look at it.

    You've possibly set your sprite dimensions too wide - which is why you're seeing the smilies that live next to each other on the sprite sheet.

    Can you go into your ACP, bring up the details of the :love: smiley, and take a screen capture of the settings so we can compare with our own?

    Note: You also get a visual representation in the top-right corner when editing the sprite dimensions - if you can see two/three or more in that preview image, then you need to change the smiley sprite dimensions.

    This css is set to 100%: .message .messageText > *:first-child

    That is causing the full width of the sprite to show.

    Disabling that fixes it.

    Thanks, we'll try that. Shutting down the access for now, I'll be back if there's anything else.
