invisibilitysyndrome : could you let us know what device and browser you're using?

 

On my setup using a desktop PC with Firefox:

There should be a smiley icon around the top middle of the reply window with all of the other formatting options.

Clicking the :smile: icon should slide open a panel below the Reply box with the list of available emoticons, click one to add it to the post, or click "Show All" underneath that to view the full list.

If you're on the Mobile site (blue/white IP.Board Mobile color theme) the interface is completely different and those options aren't there.

There's a light blue "Full Version" button @ the bottom left to change to the full Desktop site where you'll see those options.

 

Emoticons can also be entered by directly typing the code for that emoticon:

If you want to use the default mobile theme, then try just typing in the code for one of the emoticons.

The last two screenshots above show the codes to type, which is just the name of the emoticon surrounded by colons :

 

For example, when I type in:

:meditate:

it will automatically change the text into  :meditate:

Try making a new post in "Testing and Formatting" just to test out all of the ":description_for_emoticon:" things and learn how to use them! We got a place for that here!

The experience is currently the best when using the full version of the site -- regardless if you're on mobile or not. The site will know you're on mobile and try to suggest Tapatalk or at least the mobile skin -- select the full version through your browser or the site to get all the goodies.

We have to thank CSS3 for allowing us to detect screen resolutions and push the appropriate style sheet to it via @media (which is still VERY LIMITED because you need to know basically the height/width in PX to work within to TRY to push something helpful to the end user...), but at the same time it's CSS, and even if you've been working with it since 1997'ish you KNOW that CSS basically stands for, unofficially "Crazy Stupid SHIT!" It's always a guessing/editing game with that stuff. Once you think you begin to understand it you quickly realize that your code does some WEIRD stuff sometimes.

 

Not to mention that every mobile device is SLIGHTLY different and it's tough to 100% replicate a "Sitting at a PC" environment for a mobile device (lookin' at YOU @media...). In my experience porting "full sitting at a full PC" designs to mobile is more like "OK. What stuff from the normal way we want this to be can be ported more or less to a 'good enough' mobile version so that at least 53% of our users do not go insane?'".

If it's not letting you upload images, could you upload some screenshots to somewhere like http://imgur.com/ and link them here so we can see what's going on?

I have the same issue with iPad and iPhone.

Here is a screenshot.
Well never mind on the screenshot, I used to be able to load pics through tapatalk and now I get a message that says "Your forum has disable image sharing from this app"

Hm, Tapatalk must be malfunctioning somehow.

Honestly I don't suggest using it compared to to the much richer full site, on mobile/tablet devices try to use whatever options you can to "view full desktop site", there's usually a checkbox in settings somewhere.
