Smileys or emoticons are small images used to convey feelings, moods or other emotional content of a post. When we talk to people face to face in real life, we "see" a vast amount of non-verbal communication in the way someone uses facial expressions and other body language. In fact, psychologists say that only 3% of communication is verbal! Emoticons can be very effective in expressing a little of that visual information.

Generally in all text areas of an XOOPs site, you can insert hyperlinks very quickly and easily.

On top of text areas, you usually will find something like this:


This is the hyperlink button. If you click on it, you will be asked 2 questions.

First : the URL of the link. This is the actual link. For example, if you want to insert a link to this page http://www.yahoo.com, you'll enter this:

URL of the hyperlink

Hit the Ok button. The second question to answer will be: Enter the web site title. This is the name of the link itself. This is what will appear in your message. For example if you write Yahoo Web Site and hit Ok, then, in your message, it will be appear as : Yahoo Web Site, and when users will click on that link, they will be transported to http://www.yahoo.com.

You can easily format text in bold by putting the desired text between those two piece of code : Text in bold.

A quote, like it says, is some text that was written by someone else and that you would like to display in your own writing. Quoted text is displayed in a special format, as you can see on the image below.

Quotes in a message

This is commonly used in forums. For example, in a topic that contains a couple of posts, it often happens that you would like to comment or reply to something that a user wrote previously before. To do that, you would simply quote what the other user wrote, and then comment or reply to it.

The reason for quote tag is that it appears in a different format in the forums so readers clearly know that this is a quote.
