When I upgraded to 3.4.1, it might have been something I did, but the emoticons that I chose were still there. It's just that when I went to look and add more, I don't remember seeing the boxes checked. I just went back and re-checked them.
It definitely does work and I love having it available.
Me too Brandon! I'm so glad to be back. Everything is running much smoother than the last time I used IPB, not anyone's fault just my limited knowledge of tweaking things to run better. I'm very happy now and can't wait to grow with the next version.
