Instead of inserting the smiley, Smiley Xtra is inserting a load of text!

This problem can be worked around by setting Smiley Xtra to copy the smiley to the clipboard and then pasting the smiley into the textarea or text box.

Smiley Xtra says that there are "No Smilies Found"

Smiley Xtra 5 works differently from previous versions of Smiley Xtra. Instead of downloading a database and showing you the smilies in it, it downloads the smilies as you need them. So until you tell it what you're looking for, it won't know what to find!

Type your search query into the Search box at the top of the sidebar, and Smiley Xtra will display all the smilies matching your query. If it still says No Smilies Found, then there aren't any smilies that match your query and you need to try searching for something else.
