I now know I should have used this:

#2 [img"]http://img1.yoxio.com/img/229930.gif[/img"]

But I can't figure out how to get to #1 string of info, to change it to #2.
if you mean on at LandzDown them do not worry about it.

do you copy the links to say Notepad/or word as if you did that you could put the ["img] & the ["/img] to them as you go or you could just keep a list of the URL's with a brief note of the smilie
 ie: Welcome 2 LzD = http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/969/lzdwelcome12ef.gif =

OK, I'll give up and not try to change those clickables at LzD to unclickables.  That's what I thought I could clean up.  But since they only link back to the image at the hosting website, I guess it's no biggy.

But I do keep my smiley link urls in a notepad...I bet yours is 20,000 pages long!  :lol:

Ok, just saw your second post while I was posting this, and I see you did your magic again.  :thanks:

Just so you know tho...there's more of them.

I was thinking I could clean up my own mess.  If you aren't bothered by the clickables, then I won't be either.  But if there is a way, that I'm just not understanding, then I would be more than happy to take care of it.
Of course, I know you are thinking it would be less time to do it yourself...than try to get ripley to understand it!  :hysterical:

From now on, I will post unclickable smileys.  :wink:

I think that program looks quite handy for forum posters, forum posters?  (Is that what we're called?) Well, you know what I mean...forum members.

Thnx for the link!

Oh, so much to learn and so little time!

On my TO DO list  :lol:

While I was in the smiley fiasco yesterday, I got some alert that the BSOD was coming or about to arrive or something, so in the middle of all that I was googling ATWPKT2.sys & ATWPKT2.vxd files, looking for them, and re-naming them.

Thnx for the patience.

I'm not sure I'm understanding this thread, and probably should not intrude.  But from experience riplely, you and I are often thinking along similar processes, and even occassionally are working on the same problem, coincidentally.  So hopefully these comments will add to your understanding, rather than confuse you more.  And if I'm just restating the obvious, please feel free to  :smash:  bonk me on the head!

It sounds like you are wanting to open "old" messages for editing, to delete the hyperlink which you had inadvertently attached to images...yes??  My understanding is that regular members do not have the ability to edit, or even to delete their own messages (here at LzD).  Well, except for the first few moments after posting a message.  Immediately after you post a message, you will notice the word "Modify" just below the word "Quote" (or very near, if not under) in the upper right corner of the newly posted message.  I haven't specifically timed how long it's available, but it seems not to be more than a minute or 2 after posting.  If something drastically needs editing or deleting, after that time, we have to ask a moderator or admin to do it.

Does this help?  Remember, please feel free to  :smash:, if I'm off-base!  LOL!

Brynn :smash:

You were s'ppose to this whole fiasco of mine.  :tease:

But since you bring it up, yeah, you're right, I was trying to edit old posts, just smileys mind you, and thought there was a way to do it at my end.
We're all glad I'm over THAT issue.  :lol:

In case anyone is wondering why LzD is set up without an edit feature, Corrine has explained:

Because it causes potential problems if a poster returns and edits a logfile after the analyst has started working on it.

Can you believe it after as long as I've been a member here...I still have forum questions?
 
If there is a Topic that is "Pinned"  "Stickied", w/ the Stick Pin icon, should we be replying in that thread any more?  Or start a new Topic?
 
There are 2 of these "Pinned" threads that I have comments on.  One has a Padlock icon on it.  Is that a clue to me?

And another, it is my preference that if ppl want to contact me, outside forum posting, they have the option of PM online or PM offline.  Email directly would not be my preference unless I've provided someone w/ my addy. 
In My Profile, I have choosen "Hide email to the public," and yet it appears this option is available as an icon under my avatar.  How do I do this different?

As long as you have set the option to be hidden then your E-Mail addie will be hidden from all but they can still send you an E-Mail via clicking on that Icon although they would not be able to see your Addie.
