As designed  Smilies not parsed in Current activity


Well-known member
When you look at Current Activity, the smilies are not parsed, instead shown are their bbcode, so instead of a person's latest post, :eek: :eek: it would show : eek : eek without the space after :

Same thing happens in that person's profile's Current activity tab

BB code in general isn't parsed there. It's unreliable to do it because of the snippet'ing. This is the expected behavior.
