    Okay, I recently upgraded to IE 11. Now the various websites don't tell me my browser is as old as an Atari. Since upgrading, I can't seem to get the 'smileys' thing to work on ShotTalk. When I try to drag a smiley to the post, it ends up as an attachment below. Doesn't show up on the post.

    What am I doing wrong???

    +1 ^^^^

    Just left click on the smiley icon on the toolbar and then left click on the one you want. It will appear wherever your cursor is.

    lol, drag and drop emoji...

    Limp, download Chrome or firefox. It keeps itself updated. IE sucks big floppy donkey. IE stands for "Chrome Downloading Application" in my book.

    What you're doing wrong is using IE.

    See Glark's post.

    yeah...to replace it with another browser to try and get rid of the 'IE sucks' mantra....I doubt it will work.

    IE is fine Limp - no worries. Stick with what you know. I've used them all and they all come with their own set of + and -, just like people.

    The only + IE has is that it downloads chrome. The only + firefox has is that it has a cool mascot. Chrome pretty much destroys firefox for almost everything.

    The real question is, does he need a managed or non-managed switch?
