Using Smilies in Your Comments

Posted by Steve on January 11 at 09:43 am

Hi all Garden members! I haven’t spoken to any of you since 2010 (haha)! :P

We’ve gotten some questions lately about how to make smiley faces in your comments about Fresh Picks and Designs. Here’s a chart that will hopefully make it easier to put some emotion in there! ;)

To get these different smilies in your comments, just type the text equivalent and The Garden will automatically turn it into the appropriate smiley. :o

Smile away! 8)

    Elaine, that is soooo funny, considering you were the one who taught me my first LB smilies!!! ;)

    Steve, thanks for posting this for us! I remember when I wrote you (long, long ago LOL) and asked for a smiley tutorial. You very graciously sent me one, which I have shared with many of the ladies in the Garden. :D

    NY Bella: Hmmm… I think zeros and capital O’s are treated differently… I think the face you were going for is using the a capital letter. Let me try… 8-O

    Yup! It’s the letter :)

    NY Bella says:

    Steve, thank you very much for resending that great list of “smiley faces” out again – 8) 8 ) 8O 8 O

    Oops – in the right column, I notice a “-” between the first and the third characters – is that dash/hyphen typed as you show it? Just curious… ;)

  15. Steve
    Steve says:

    Hi Joyce: yes, that’s a dash. You can think of it as the “nose” in the smiley face. Spelled out, an example is “eight, dash, capital O”… like so: 8-O
