    I still can't do it but I did find that copy and paste works but means you'd have to find a posting with the hearts/smiley faces first. ☺

    I found the post and it made no sense at all to me! LOL As soon as someone mentioned the word "COMLICATED", I read no further! Being that I still don't know how to use the remote control and change my TV to DVD mode and then of course vice versa, I have a million movies I have never watched! My guest bedroom has a TV and the timer light keeps blinking. I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it to quit. My solution? I covered it with black electrical tape. It is no doubt still blinking, but I don't see it anymore!

    I have gotten over being jealous, again the word "complicated" cured me of that trait immediately! I am happy to be able to post and read, and thankfully I have an imagination which is colorful enough, even in black and white!!

    Here's one way, maybe....
    Left click on Tools at the top of your screen. Choose "Options" from the drop-down menu.. You'll see lots of options. click on the "Content" tab. In the middle you can choose fonts, colors, and type size for the post's titles. To choose content type colors, fonts and sizes, go to Monospace. There you can pick font and type size. I don't know how to add hearts and flowers unless it's one of the fonts that you can select (like wingdings). Well, Maybe this is just working on my screen. I'm not sure. Lynn

    It's ok, Lynn...I'm over it
    It's ok, Lynn...I'm over it already! I did do what you said, but when I clicked on content, those options weren't there. It had 4~ Parental Controls, Auto-Fill and 2 others, but not Monospace or anything that sounded like that! It's not a big deal to me, but thanks for the info!

    Sorry Claudia...
    I'm not technically minded at all-maybe that's why I don't have any pictures or anything like that yet-just plain old Outdoorgirl on the screen...

    Hey everyone...I'll try to help you!!
    I'm not very good at teaching but I will try!!
    Before you start typing, the very first thing you want to do is pick the color, so, you would type this
    < f o n t c o l o r = r e d > and then type your message.
    Everything will be in red. Now in order for that to appear in my text and not make my words all red, I left spaces. In order for it to work, do not leave a space. The only space should be between the words "font" and "color". After the equal sign, choose any color you want to type in there. (except turquois!!) You can select red, blue, navy, green, limegreen, pink, hotpink, teal,etc.
    Good luck. Just remember to type the above code before your words. When you post, the code will disappear!
    Good luck..... Pammy

    It took me a couple times playing with it to get it. Make sure you are putting these signs at the ends....< and > , make sure to leave a space between the words "font" and "color" only.

    Okay here it goes
    You have to type in a code, once that's done then everything after that will be in color. Try it by clicking on preview before you post. Here's the code, just remember to put a space between the word "font" and "color" or it wont' work.

    < fontcolor=red>
    (remember to put the space in between the word's font and color,but no where else.)
    (oh sorry I said that already:)

    As for the hearts ands spades and stuff, first you type in the "&" symbol, then type in the word "hearts" and then put a semi colon. Do all this with no spaces, then type your name, and preview it. You could type in clubs or spades or any one of the 4 suits.

    & hearts ; (but no spaces)

    To make things bigger just type the word "big" as many times as you want in between these things<> and then put the font color code after that.

    < big>< big>< big>< fontcolor=green> Just remember no spaces except between the words font and color.

    I hope that made sense, it's really not that copmplicated, and it really is cool!

    I followed the instructions, honestly I did!!!!
    My colors didn't change either, and I still ended up with the word heart and not an icon. But really, I am, as they say "over it"...thanks for trying though! :-)
