The Plug-in Manager page opens.
Locate the column titled Editor – TinyMCE. Click the row’s title.
The Plug-in Manager: TinyMCE page opens.
Under the Basic Options pane, set the Functionality drop-down list to Extended.
Click the Save & Close button.
Click the emoticon you want to use to insert it into the text. Now, click Save & Close. Once you’ve returned to the Article Manager: Articles page, click the View Site link at the top of the page to navigate to your Joomla site’s front end.
