    2018 will be the year of adding [PLAIN]-tags to a lot of posts :rolleyes:
    Why?
    Example: (January 12, 201:cool:
    After embedding it in those tags (to avoid smileys) it looks like this: (January 11, 2018)
    In general this will also lead to loosing of all formattings within the tags.

    Test #1:
    Source:
    Code:
    [PLAIN][COLOR=#0000ff]:( This is bold and blue :)[/COLOR][/PLAIN]
    [PLAIN][COLOR=#ff0000]This is red :)[/COLOR][/PLAIN]
    [PLAIN][S](8) strike-through (8)[/S][/PLAIN]
    [PLAIN][SIZE=5]Font 5[/SIZE][/PLAIN]
    [PLAIN][U][I]Italic+Underline :) (2018)[/I][/U][/PLAIN]
    
    
    Result:
    :( This is bold and blue :)
    This is red :)
    (8) strike-through (8)
    Font 5
    Italic+Underline :) (2018)

    There is a solution to get rid of the smiley but without loosing the text color or other formattings.

    For example to have a bold "(8)" we can try to:
    write it without [PLAIN]-tags = (:cool:
    embed into [PLAIN]-tags = (8)
    This is not what we want but the solution is this: (8)

    (8) including the [PLAIN] and [/PLAIN] tag has to be marked in bold and now the format is preserved (and the smiley is gone of course)

    Test #2:
    Source:
    Code:
    [B][COLOR=#0000ff][PLAIN]:( This is bold and blue :)[/PLAIN][/COLOR][/B]
    [COLOR=#ff0000][PLAIN]This is red :)[/PLAIN][/COLOR]
    [S][PLAIN](8) strike-through (8)[/PLAIN][/S]
    [SIZE=5][PLAIN]Font 5[/PLAIN][/SIZE]
    [U][PLAIN]Italic+Underline :) (2018)[/PLAIN][/U]
    Result:
    :( This is bold and blue :)

    This is red :)
    (8) strike-through (8)
    Font 5
    Italic+Underline :) (2018)
