If you post on Rav with a phone or tablet, you may have noticed that things didn't go so well when trying to include emoji in your text. Well, we fixed that.

Emoji now work in the forums and in private messages. If you insert them anywhere else, you'll see the name of the symbol instead of an image.

but how?

  • On a phone or tablet: you have an emoji keyboard on there somewhere. It's easy to use once you find it. Some help: Samsung, other Android devices, Apple.
  • On a Mac: hit ⌘-control-space to bring up the emoji selector.
  • Elsewhere: find and search codes at http://emoji.codes and type the code that you want (like :sheep:) into a post or message.
  • or.. if you see one that you like somewhere on Ravelry, hover your mouse over it to see its code name.

Enjoy!
