Would it be possible to make the smiley replacement dependent on a word boundary? That way things like about lugins (about : plugins) wouldn't be affected...

    Users can also select the "Disable Smilies in Text" checkbox in Miscellaneous Options to stop their text from being turned into accidental smilies.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Got it! I was looking in my profile :oops: but that seems to Disable all smileys

    Surely the smiley code above should be parsed but about:plugins shouldn't be?

    It's also available in the various options whenever you use the Reply to Thread button.

    Look below the message text box under Additional Options / Miscellaneous Options / Disable smilies in text

    LOL skype always catches me with the smileys thing too. I often use :o) as a smiley face in text, but it changes to ) LOL At least here on the forum :o) stays as is!

    Perhaps smileys should be enclosed by square brackets?
