I put a smiley in my signature, but it won't display at the end of the topics that I post.

Thomas- Serge is talking about a smiley in his signature - a bit of text that gets appended to anything he posts (as long as he selects the "show signature" option before posting). Click on "profile" and you'll see how you can set yours.
Serge- I don't believe it's possible. Note that the text near where you set your signature says:
You may use UBB Code in this field, but not HTML. The UBB Code Image tag is not permitted, however.
My guess is that smileys are not considered part of the main UBB code, but rather that they depend on image tags of some sort. (Obviously they are images, so whatever makes it so image tags don't work probably also affects smileys the same way.)
Here's a smiley outside my signature:

With some experimentation though, I find that if you re-edit your post after it's been posted once, a smiley in the signature does get converted to a graphic smiley. Probably because after the initial posing, the signature is just more text that you can edit.

This is my signature:

Just one more of 3,671 reasons that UBB is a bad forum product.

Thomas,
do you really think that UBB is a bad product?

Absolutely, and most web site providers agree. It is a resource pig. VBulletin runs rings around UBB. VBulletin uses PHP and MySQL.

How does the look and feel compare. I can't think of anything I've seen that's as nice as UBB.

The basic look and feel is the same but even better it is easily customizable to almost anything you like via templates. Take a look at their web site: http://www.vbulletin.com They have a community page that features an active board.
