Making the Most of Your Feelings in Discussion Board Plus

Emotion symbols are a simple and fun way to make our communications a little more lively and colorful, rather than ‘corporate’ and formal. But searching for that perfect symbol can become a little time-consuming. So in this article, we’d like to share the latest version of the Emotion Functions of DBP, show-casing some lovely and expressive icons to suit both your mood and the topic at hand.

The new functionality allows us to find the perfect emotion across a variety of discussions points and topics.

Emotion in this advanced version has some outstanding features:

– Includes 5 packages of icons including facial, animals and trees, buildings, signs and items categorized for quick search.

+ Emotion can be switched on/off in the Forum Settings of each DBP

Enter Forum Settings, choose Enable Emoji option, and choose from the Emotions available

Just follow these simple steps and you can express yourself freely:

– Create a new topic or click to reply to a topic:

– You’ll see related icons available at the right corner of your screen:

We can also type an emotion to enable a quick search for the emotion you wish to use:

This version is adopted from Emoji One. For further information, just access Emoji One via the link provided:

All you need to do now is have fun expressing yourself!
