Solved Newbie got problem with smiles in phpBB2

Post by Doca on March 7th 2013, 11:29 am

Hello people!

I am pretty much new in all of this. I establish a nice forum with some friends and I use phpBB2 (subSilver) theme version. Forum is working nicely, but I have two major problems for now.
First, when someone is composing Priv. Message, small window with smiles appear on the left side of the text area but clicking on any smiley is without effect... nothing happens... no smiley is added to the PM text. Some members even experience some weird widening of text area but no smiles added!?
I read tutorial here on Forumotion about smiles but there is no option “Allow smiles” in my script when I follow advice to go through AdminPanel>General>Messages&E-mails.

Any hint?

Also, I would like to be able to resize smiles window-area... it is a way too small for our needs. Part of our members are with impaired vision, therefore we are using bigger smiles and it is tedious sometimes to scroll and search in a small area as it is by default.

I am not sure it is related to any particular smiley or newly added smiles... it is the same with ALL smiles... new and old that by default comes with script. And that is happening ONLY when composing PM. Smiles work perfectly when writing anwers-messages on forum.

Yes as far as I know, but at a moment I can't confirm 101%. I would have to check that with all members. Many of them reported that issue....

What account details you need? I am not the one that started forum... I have joined next day but somehow I took to set thing in script and functionality because I am a bit more skilled than my friend which actually started that all.

Of course, we tried to customize interface for our needs. Shame is that I was not the only one which done that, but they performed some changes before I joined forum and I don't know what have they done already!

I'll try to revert back if there is no other way.

Please don't double/triple post. Your post need to be separated by 24 hours before bumping, replying or adding more information. Please use the edit button instead!

Don't you think we should fix one problem at a time.

What do you exactly want to do? Please post a screenshot.

I already replied to your PM.

Please do not post random things in someone else's thread, since this being your third reminder about the same thing. You are earning yourself a warning.

It looks like this...



For young people with good vision that might be OK but with bigger smiles and not so good vision we need to be able to make that smiles window much bigger than that... 3-4-5 times bigger.
Watch how it looks with big smiles.

Add this to your css & check. Only the width can be increased via CSS.
Code:
 div#sel_smilies.select {
    width: 500px !important;
}

I also posted a question on my forum for all members about behaviour of smiles in PM but it will take some time till I have answers from all of them... probably tomorrow.

Smiles window size is solved now.
First problem with smiles in PM is still unsolved and will have to wait for members response. I don't want to reset everything if most people are without that problem.

Number of members affected by problem is finaly too small so we decide to ignore it.
So, problem is not solved but ignored hence you can call it SOLVED!

Thank you all!
