Qestion: When I inserted a smiley to an article at administration section, it inserted only smiley tag, but not smiley images. Why is that?
Answer: Zaazu Emoticons were created to be independent from the editor you use with Joomla, so it inserts only smiley tags at administration section and replace them with snmiley images when users see page at client section of your website. It allows Zaazu Emoticons to works with any editor you prefer with Joomla.

Qestion: Zaazu Button plugin doesn't show smileys when I click on button.
Answer: Zaazu Button plugin requires Zaazu Emoticons plugin to be installed (because it uses its functionality and set of smileys also), so it will report to you that Zaazu Emoticons plugin is required to be able use Zaazu Button plugin with your administration section. Please install Zaazu Emotiocns first.

Qestion: I installed both plugins but I don't see Zaazu Emoticons button when I'm editing my article and instead of smiley images I see smiley tags.
Answer: Please make sure you activated both plugins with your Extensions->Plugins Manager section first. If problem still exists, please verify that you use correct Joomla version (plugins have different archives for different Joomla versions).
