Hello Newblet,

To make your categories show up, please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Structure and hierarchy (on the left, under Homepage)
4. Select "Split categories on index : Medium"

To add smilies, you will first need your own images. Once you have your images, you can then add them at:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Smilies (on the left, under Avatars)

Wink

Regards,

Base

Solved Smiley categories

Post by BR on May 25th 2011, 9:24 pm

I wasn't sure if I should post in this old thread that hasn't been closed or if I should create a new one... let me know please.

So, I believe what Newblet was asking for wasn't the forum categories but rather the smiley's categories.
Here's a screenshot:

If I add smiley to any category other than the 1st, they don't show up. I tried finding information about what and how to use these categories but found nothing.
If a tutorial exist could you redirect me please?

Thank you Exclamation

Hi,

BR, when u add them to a category of smilies other then the primary 1st group, you have to change the group to select from, when in the extended editor click on the box that sits above the smilies Smile

Thank you Darren1 but I knew this; it doesn't answer my question. mwii
Let me try to clarify...

There are 5 categories of smileys that show up; you can assign your smileys to any of those categories (I believe that's what you were saying).

  1. Once that is done, how do you "activate" a different category than the 1st (if at all possible)?
  2. What are those categories used for if only the "Category 1" can be displayed?
  3. Are they used to "store" smileys for a later use (by putting them back in Category 1 later on)?
  4. Is there a tutorial somewhere about this? blackeye

Thank you again! salut

This tutorial should be able to help out.
=> http://help.forumotion.com/t8325-smilies-emoticons

To change a group of emoticons showing, click the preview button, or the post reply button, then to your right, above your set of smilies, click the "View more Emoticons" button, and choose another group Wink
