When you click on one of the smiley icons to insert it into your message, it always gets appended to the end of the message. It'd be much more convenient if it got inserted wherever the cursor currently was. Any chance of that?

In sa word NO!

Sorry but I have looked for a mod to V buletin to do this and can't find one. I think the problem may actually be at the browser end rather than the server.

Sorry :)

Hmm, I've had a look at what would be required on the JavaScript side of things and it's not impossible but it is very tricky. Interesting - I think I'll have a bit of a play... :)

If I come up with anything, I'll post it here.

no it wouldn't. get a clue before you post.

It would have to be embedded in php (actually strictly it wouldn't, u could end the php, put in the JS, and then start the php again), since that is what renders the actual site. MySQL merely contains the data which php picks up.
