Inserting Emoticons

Oct 30 new
Whenever I insert an emoticon in one of my posts here in the forums, it gets placed at the very beginning of what I am writing. This happens when I put the cursor at the end of my words, in the middle, etc. It always jumps to the beginning and puts my emoticon there, when I never wanted it there. Then I have to copy and paste the :word: into the right space.

Any thoughts on how to stop making this happen?

Don't use emoticons. laughing




On a more serious note, have you tried a different browser?

Seems to work OK with Firefox 24.0 on Windows 7

Kathleen - knowing what operating system and browser you are using will help either troubleshoot a bug you have found - or at minimum allow suggestions for workarounds using different browsers as mentioned in the previous posts

Ok, it's IE8 on Windows 8, I think.

Go figure, now that I've posted this, I have tried to create Inbox messages as well as forum posts, and the same thing is not happening. The :word: is showing up at the proper spot. Sorry about that. If it happens again, I'll let you all know. At least I will be ready for it this time.

Thank you for all of your help.

A lot of people have had trouble with IE on CM for years. I would try using Firefox as your browser..You will find an entirely different experience.
