Solved How can I add more smilies to my forum?

Post by cecesaun1 on June 24th 2010, 3:41 am

I'm trying to add more smilies to my forum and when I put in the code, it tells me I have not submitted a picture. Which I have. What could I be doing wrong?
I've also tried several different sites to see if it was just maybe the wrong kind and yet no positive results.

Admin panel > Display > On left hand side under avatars it'll say "Smilies" Click it then click "add new smiley" you have to have the images saved to your computer give it a code then give it a name, and done!

So I just can't go to a site on the web that offers these smilies for free and copy and paste from there...which is what I've been trying to do? I know where the option is located...I just feel like I'm missing something. And if it's the pictures, and I'm copying and pasting...what else could I be doing wrong?

Yes they are gif. It's asking for a code and picture and I can get the code but it won't let me copy and paste a pic. I think it's asking for something like this: :-). Some of the smilies I'm wanting to add I can't even begin to think of how to make a smiley to represent them.

Anyone? My members are really wanting new smilies and I'm really trying to add them. I've tried everything I know but it won't work and I've even checked other topics on this and tried their method recommended and still won't work.

I only know how to add smilies if they are on my computer. It looks like this:



I have to save smilies that I find to my computer and then upload them to my forum.

Thanks for responding! Smile

I have the same look as you do to that section. The smilie code I thought was the actual code that you get when want to download the smilie. Like I've went searching the net for different smilies...I came across several that said all I had to do was copy and paste the code and done. So I copied the code and placed it in the
Code: section

as for the
Smilie Emotion: I have tried to paste the actual gif of the smilie and when that didn't work I tried to just imitate some sort of smilie and that didn't work. (by imitate I mean like Sad* ) someone here had posted it worked for them.

The Smilie Image file I left blank because I already had the code and the emotion so where was I going to get the actual image file.

Gah! I'm so frustrated!

Anywho...thanks for responding...at least I see see that I have the same set up as others do! Smile

Is your question answered?

smilie code: whatever word(s) that you put between 2 colons (check out what your existing smilies have)

smilie emoticon: whatever emotion you think your smilie depicts (check out what your existing smilies have)

category: wherever you choose to put it

Smilie Image File: wherever the smilie is located on your computer

This will make the smilie available for all members to use

Almost...if I have to download the smilies to my computer...where should I put them and I don't see anyway to download the smilies. I guess since they put the code on it they didn't feel a need to add a way to download them to your computer.

This is for Windows: Right click on a smilie. Select 'save image as'. Choose where to put it. This is the location that you put in 'Smilie Image File'.

I made a folder on my desktop to put smilies in.
