How? (on a one-off, per-post basis)
Just before a smiley you don't want it to parse (or at the start of the post), type [plain]. Then after the smiley, type [/plain].
Without 'plain' command...
After 'plain' command...
:) = :)
But you also lose the ability to use bold/italic/colours/links/etc during the 'plain'.
All I wanted to do was to write on:off (as in mark:space ratios) and not get onff...
It's a right PITA - firstly I (clearly) need to do this so infrequently that I don't remember how (never a problem when we had a box to tick), and secondly the [plain] [/plain] tags aren't available as a formatting button like Bold, Italic etc, and so are much less handy to do than having a box to tick.
Another one for the list of new forum "features" which are nothing but retrograde steps that hinder, not help, users.
Why would you want to do this?
sorry just checking!.
Try typing "turnoverrofit ratio" without doing it.
Oh - look.
I guess the easiest way would be to include spaces:
on : off
turnover : profit
Sure it looks a bit weird, but much less so than an unwanted emoji I'd say, and quicker than having to faff with tags.
turnover profit ratio
seems clear to me?
Separate names with a comma.
