What Text Do I Type to Make Smileys?

Word Press

Smileys, also known as “emoticons,” are glyphs used to convey emotions in your writing. They are a great way to brighten up posts. smile emoticon

Text smileys are created by typing two or more punctuation marks. Type the smileys without the spaces between the : and the other punctuation marks or it will not work.  (I had to put the spaces in to show you what to type or it would just show the smiley faces and you would not know what to type.)

Some examples are:  

; - ) is equivalent to smile emoticon
: - ) is equivalent to smile emoticon
: - ( is equivalent to sad emoticon
: - ? is equivalent to confused emoticon

  1. Fond memories of Digger. Man. RIP brother. May you awaken to see the restoration of this once great Republic. Meet you in person on the other side when the smoke clears! 🙂

    1. Digger was the topic of a conversation I had today with someone who knew him. It’s nice to know others who recall Digger.
