    Please, Cprogramming.com...

    ...for the love of God, please disable smileys (automatically) in code tags. How often haven't I written code like ios::out or MYCLASS::DataMember() and ugly annoying smileys sneak into my code and turning it into ios:ut and MYCLASS:ataMember(). Totally ruining it .

    It have to be some way to remove them, in code tags only...

    Think it sould go. If for instance want to copy the code into my compiler, it's a mess.

    I kinda like them. They keep things more...entertaining. Plus you can tell what someone's mood is.

    That's fine, but I think the idea was to get rid of them inside code tags - the mood's not usually important in there

    For those that didn't know or didn't realise, the board software is from Jelsoft Enterprises, any coding changes to it would need to be done by them.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    ...which also disables the smileys I want outside the code tags...

    that wont happen, since they didnt write this forum and editing it would be an imfringement of copyright laws

    Not neccesarily...they obviously give you the source (seeing as that's the only way to do it and all). FD's made multiple code changes to the boards...

    Actually, I believe you're allowed to modify the board software....They actually promote code "hacks" on the vB site.
