[Guide] Custom Smiles - For Ultimate subscribers and upgrade option
Admin > Ad Free & Upgrades - Purchase Custom Smiles Upgrade


In this guide you will learn how to add custom smiles to your forum.

Go to Admin > Smileys and Message Icons

Step 1:
     a:  Put a Checkmark in:   Enable Customized Smileys    
    
     b.   If you previously used a Photobucket Account as the Base Url for the smileys on your forum or if you used the url for the smileys you see here at the Support forum, you will need to return the Url back to Default.     If you used the smf smileys also delete the smf smiley set on the Settings page.    If you did neither click "Save Changes" and move on to Step 2.

    To put the Base Url Back to Default:
    In "Base URL to all smiley sets":   Use http://text.smfforfree.com/Smileys
        NOTE   Replace text.smfforfree.com with YOUR forums url.
    Click "Save Changes".

    


Step 2 Click  "Smiley Sets"

In Smiley Sets click on the "New Smiley Set" Button




Step 3
You can call the name of your smiley set what ever you want.
Just two things are important.
1.  First make sure that default smiley set is checked.
2.  Last And most important of all make sure the url is users/yoursubdomainnamehere
For example
If your url is http://demo.smfforfree.com
Then your subdomain would be "demo"
You would use users/demo  as the smiley set url.





Step 4 After you created your smiley set it is time to upload smilies.
First click on "Add Smiley" menu link on the page.
Now make sure that "Upload New Smiley" is selected.
Next browse for a smiley image on your computer.
Make sure that same image for all smiley sets is selected.
Enter the smiley code you wish to use for the image and make a short description and where you want the image to show.
Then click the "Save Changes" button.

[


The first time you upload a new smiley it will copy over the images from the default smiley set.

Step 5
Almost done!  This is the last step:
Go to Admin > Current Theme
Choose the name of the smiley set you created.




You are now finished and can enjoy using custom smiles on your forum.

Enjoy,

Sigh...  It's *still* showing red x's..    "Smiley not found in set(s): myforum" every smilie I've uploaded today is not showing up, either with the sets I tried to create or the one you created. So either my browser is stupid and just not showing them, or somehow the url isn't right, or something. (maybe I'm just dumb, who knows)

*pulls hair out*

Thanks..  *wanders off*

You will need to upload all the smiles you want to use first cause it does not copy over the default smiles so they go to x's since they no longer exist. So you ned to upload a smlie for all the old ones.

In order to upload smileys you have to purchase the Custom Smiles Upgrade - it is a one time fee. ($20.00)

When you go to the page to pay with paypal it has a country dropdown box.  I would assume it handles it fine and would charge you whatever it would be in pounds.

How do you do this??? I keep trying and it doesnt seem to work.  tickedoff tickedoff tickedoff

I've tried naming the smilies I'm uploadin the same names as the default so they cover them, that didn't work. I tried new names and they show up in the list but no pics, just the new name and code.  idiot2 idiot2 idiot2
