Click on the Smiley Sets Tab.
Click on the New Smiley Set Button.
In the Name box put the name of the album you created at Photobucket.
In the url box put the exact same name.
Check mark the Default Smiley Set box.
Click Save Changes.

someone else may be able to provide you with that;  Im short for time right now an not able to search around for it.

Thought I would drop a note here in response to you however.
There is more to it then changing the base url.
If you can tell us the exact url you put in that area it would help.
Did you follow ALL of the steps listed in this thread?
Start at the second post in this thread and read thru the guide completely.
It DOES work so instead of going backwards lets see if you left out something  ;)

Are they renamed to the EXACT same names that are already on your forum? (they have to be identical for it to work). And are they .gif files?

Ah, not sure how do I check ::)

When you uploaded them to photobucket, thats when you should have renamed them. YOu can rename them by going to your photobucket account, clicking on each individual smiley and clicking on rename. Do you know how to check your forum and get the names that they need to be?

Make sure they are ".gif" files or you will have to reupload them

Well,Kimmieb, i will abuse your offer and post... now!
I have another problem... I tried to replace my smileys but id doesen't seem to work...
i'm pretty certain i didn't make any(obvious) mistake but i don't have any gifs show up, only their names(e.g. grin, wink and so on)...
I really don't know what to do... i re-checked my address, i'm pretty certain that they are all named right, and so on... The address in the smiley sets sections seems ok, but...
Title: Help with Adding Smilies on SMF 1.1.2
Post by: simply sibyl on April 13, 2007, 04:34:05 pm
can you show us what you put in for the base url.. and what you did in the smiley sets section?
Also.. did you make sure to go to Current Theme and choose your new set as the smiley set?

Replacing your smileys for the first time can be pretty difficult (believe me..lol). One thing to keep in mind is, you need to follow sibyls guide she made - step by step - in that order. On your main photobucket page, all you will see are the main names such as: "wink", "grin", etc. You wont see the extension until you click on the smiley and go to the full view page. Then down towards the bottom you will see the entire name of the file.

If you would like me to walk you thru it step by step shoot me a pm and I will be glad to help ya  ;)

thanks Kim :)

I edited the Guide today to try to make it a bit clearer.
Also redid the screenshots.
I was going add the filenames in there but they do need to know what graphic they represent so I think that is really a waste of time.

Sibyl,

I just wanted to tell you that your Smilie Guide was a lifesaver.  Thanks so much for putting that together for us.

(https://www.smfsupport.com/support/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi137.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fq232%2FLaundryLady1947%2FSnaggables%2FLaundryLady2.gif&hash=eaa1b148258620ba05f6240c3377a212)

This is the complete url that is seen in the "smiley sets": http://s86.photobucket.com/albums/k117/nohtun/smiles/

this is the url of settings/Enable customized Smileys: http://s86.photobucket.com/albums/k117/nohtun

And i checked the "smiles" as default, and i went to current themes several times and checked them...

Ps. Great call that you locked the tutorial and split the thread for questions... It is much better that way ;)

Kimmieb, if all else fails i'll start bothering you again :D

Post by: Stumps on April 14, 2007, 07:27:51 am
Oh crap! I just solved it! It appears that when i was uploading images, i uploaded them in the main album, instead of the newly created one...
lol Sorry guys, about bothering you...

It works fine now... Thanks, anyways

Post by: Mr York on April 27, 2007, 07:20:24 pm
OK....sorry if this has been asked before...but the default and classic smiley sets had around 22 smileys I believe...I added all the hidden ones as far as I know. And now I just used the ones that you can see on this forum here, and I counted 32 I think. If we can't add smileys, how can that be possible? why is there a limit and why do we have to keep the same file names, sometimes they don't make sense, like the afro guy, if we don't need it, we'll have to name another smiley afro and people will get confused with it. I love your free forums but why can't there be an upgrade about this? most of my members love to use smileys more than posting pictures, so there's not much difference about the bandwith. So if I now replace my smileys like I did before with the default set, this time will I be able to replace 32 smileys instead of only 22? but why are there more here than in the default set?

Thank you for clarifying things...

The smf set, that you see here,  does have more smileys in it.  There are actually 33 total but only 32 of them work.
One of them (embarrassed.gif)  will produce a red x.   the other embarassed one is not the same style , but the file name is accurate.    (one r.. not two)

SO..  if you install the smf smileys by following the directions here: 
 http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_how_to_use_the_smf_smileys_you_see_here_at_support-t3739.0.html

then ADD all of the smileys you can in the Add Smiley part of those directions and THEN follow the guide to replace them you can indeed wind up with more then 19 smileys..   

I cannot tell you why you need to rename them exactly or why it will only work with those EXACT file names.

Reason being:    I honestly do not know.   

I only know that it is the only way that it will work.   It is the only option we have to change the smileys we get when creating a new forum as SMF has stated he will not be allowing uploading smileys again.     That used to be permitted, but is no longer;   so this is the workaround we have.

thanks a lot Sibyl, even if it's confusing to keep those file names, but it's not that big of a problem..
I read a lot of your posts, they were very helpful  :) I'll probably come back one day for more questions , poor you  ;) :2funny:

thanks again, this will save us time to you and us ;-)

I just edited the Guide for Using the smf smileys you see here at support so it is clearer how many you will wind up with.     

Note: to anyone reading this..    To avoid confusion I shall TRY to explain this.

There IS a way to have 32 smileys.

First you install the smf smileys using this Guide:
How to use the smileys you see here at support (http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_how_to_use_the_smf_smileys_you_see_here_at_support-t3739.0.html;msg18668#msg18668)
I have added a screenshot to that guide today , that includes the filenames, so that you can see which ones you should have when finished.   
You will have 32 smileys after doing this.

If you wish to then replace those 32 smileys with your own use this Guide:
How to replace smileys (SMF 1.1) (http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_how_to_replace_smileys_in_smf_112-t3679.0.html;msg18467#msg18467)

The screenshot contains the filenames so you will know all of the filenames you need/can use.

As a note to those using freesmfhosting.com, I thought I would save you some headache. It appears that there are 16 smiles used there, not 19 (unless I'm doing something wrong). The file names are:

1. smiley.gif
2. wink.gif
3. cheesy.gif
4. grin.gif
5. angry.gif
6. sad.gif
7. shocked.gif
8. cool.gif
9. huh.gif
10. rolleyes.gif
11. tongue.gif
12. embarrassed.gif
13. lipsrsealed.gif
14. undecided.gif
15. kiss.gif
16. cry.gif

If you follow the guide carefully step by step it'll work .. I would go thru it, and have your forum open in another window at the same time..   doublecheck all the steps.    If it isnt working after that,   can ya do a screenshot of the settings page?

I am very confused by this replacing smilies with ones on a photobucket account.

could i also point out that some of the photobucket urls posted in this thread for help, well i clicked them and you can get straight into someones account. :(
anyway....
When i did try to replace smilies,  all i got were red x's.  I re checked everything and still they didn't work.

and also when i replaced the default smilies with the smf smilie set, as we use here, i could only find 22 files names and not 32.... i then replaced those with our custom ones for the forum but red x's appeared.

Another question i have... say we have lots of members all posting smilies, aren't they using photobuckets server space? and will there be limits to that?

thanks  :)

Monthly bandwidth for a free Photobucket account is 25gb.
I cannot say you would NEVER go over the limit, but I have an account with them that stores over 1800 smileys/images for mywebpage on it - where I allow people to use links from my PB space.. its never ever been even close.

                 as you noted - only 22 smileys in the dropdown box in Add Smileys
                 
                 When I did the tutorial for it , it was using a forum on server2..   this is, at the moment,
                 not making sense to me as it is using the same base url and they should all be there no

Another question i have... say we have lots of members all posting smilies, aren't they using photobuckets server space? and will there be limits to that?

Monthly bandwidth for a free Photobucket account is 25gb.
I cannot say you would NEVER go over the limit, but I have an account with them that stores over 1800 smileys/images for mywebpage on it - where I allow people to use links from my PB space.. its never ever been even close.
 
Hi sybil, thanks for replying to this.
I carefully followed all steps. but i will try again. I'm a bit confused about the photobucket url.

Renamed  all my smilies to the filesnames as you said and then loaded them onto photobucket. I put them in a sub album and gave that sub album a name.  I left off the album name of the smilies when i imput the url on the forum ... but they didn't work.  I think i used the correct of the photobucket url.  I wasn't entirely sure where to find that in photobucket once i'd made up the album.

So maybe that's the problem?

Incognito -  since you are on server3 I decided to try the smf smileys on my server 3 test forum.  
                 as you noted - only 22 smileys in the dropdown box in Add Smileys
                
                 When I did the tutorial for it , it was using a forum on server2..   this is, at the moment,
                 not making sense to me as it is using the same base url and they should all be there no
                 matter the server you are on.     :-\

oh how strange. well at least you'll be able to let people know who sign up on server 3. i thought i was going mad, i searched and searched for the rest of the filenames and thought i must be doing something wrong.

It could be..   
Ill put this as an example PB url:   http://s102.photobucket.com/albums/m105/mysmileyplace/
Notice there is NO album name at the end of it
That is all you want to put in the base url
Since you name the "set"  the album name it will look IN the base url for that name (the album name)
and get the smileys from there.

Also..   I have found you have to be extremely careful when putting the base url in.
There can not be even ONE space before, or after the url you put in or it will not work.
To doublecheck that put your mouse at the beginning of the url in the box.. click your END key on your keyboard.
Make sure it goes to the very end and if not backspace to it so it clears the spaces.

well an update to this sybil... yesterday when i replaced the smf smilies, we thought they had worked... they all showed up in the post reply box... however. when we came to click them..
some didn't work correctly... for instance... the cheesy one posted with the correct icon.
but when we clicked the evil icon... the cheesy icon came up again.

Even the smf set had the same problem.  when we tried that.


another things is i have noticed that in the default set and also the smf set, there are bits of code showing before certain smilies...  evil has this before it >  and roll eyes wouldn't work with my custom set and when you check the default set, before the icon this  :  shows. 

looks like the default set is wrong to me and if the smf set is based on the default set and then when we replace the smf set with our own, problems crop up.

Like i said our custom set  will load fine and can all be seen in the post box, it's isn't until we actually come to click some of them that we get problems.

i have deleted both the smf url and our custom url from the forum now and we are back to using the original default set, which aren't pretty at all.... and even these have problems with them as i've explained earlier.

here's our forum address.

An amdendment to my post above....  we deleted the smf set, the url and everything.

replaced the original smilies with our custom set.  Still the same problem.

the custom set (ours, hosted on photobucket)  can all be seen clearly in the post reply box, it isn't until you click on them and use them that there is a problem.


rolleyes doesn't bring up the smilie allocated to that filename. it's brings up another one.

evil brings up a smilie, allocated to the cheesy file name

and so on...

i have checked an doubled checked the photobucket account.  all the smilies are named corectly.

and the url  is obviously  correct because we can see our custom smilies in the reply box on the forum, they can also been seen in the edit smilies tab in admin.

nothing we can do resolve this so relying on you guys.

thanks

Hi I have not put any smiles in the ones I got on my forum are not working I keep getting the red boxes?

Jane, I replied to your same question when you posted it here :

http://www.smfsupport.com/support/general_support/i_lost_all_my_smiles-t4484.0.html;msg21925#msg21925

If you are still using the preinstalled SMF smileys that came with your forum, try this:

Go to Admin CP > Smileys and Message Icons

If you are on Server 2 (smfforfree2.com): Select "Default" in the drop down menu and replace the url thats there with http://theplayground.smfforfree2.com/Smileys (change where mine says theplayground and put your forum name there). Click SAVE. Go to Admin CP > Current Theme - select "Default" from the drop down menu that says "Select default smiley set for this theme" - Scroll down and click SAVE. Refresh your browser. Your default smileys should be back.

If you are on Server 3 (smfforfree3.com): Select "Default" from the drop down menu and replace the url thats there with http://ThePlayground.smfforfree3.com/Smileys (change where mine says theplayground and put your forum name there). Click SAVE. Go to Admin CP > Current Theme - select "Default" from the drop down menu that says "Select default smiley set for this theme" - Scroll down and click SAVE. Refresh your browser. Your default smileys should be back.

(reminder: when posting a help question, please list your forum url)  ;)

HELP!

I looked at your forum smileys and they are showing up as "Red X's". Check to make sure the names of the smileys you are wanting to use are named "exactly" like the smf smiley names or they wont work. You can see the actual names by going to Admin CP > Smiley and Message Icons > Edit Smileys. Compare the names of the smileys you uploaded to photobucket (or whereever you are hosting them), and make sure they match. Rememeber that the file type ".gif" also has to match.


~~Edit~~ Smileys fixed

Your forum is using smf 1.1.2
Use this Guide... follow every step in it... exactly as it is written.. do not leave out any step and it will work for you:

http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_how_to_replace_smileys_in_smf_112-t3679.0.html;msg18467#msg18467

smfforfree2 is not a version... it just means your forum is on server 2 and all forums that are on that server are using smf version 1.1.2.

you only have one called embarrased because SMF only has one called emabarrased in the smiley folder he has on his servers. When you replace the default smileys with new ones, in essence all your doing is swapping the ones that are already there.

if your saying you tried changing them out and the only one that shows up is that one, make sure you renamed them all correctly (they have to be the exact same names as the ones that are already on there - including the ".gif") or they wont work. All you will get is boxes with little red X's in them.

yep those will work. Just right click on them, saving them on your computer as the actual names you need, (the names that match the smileys you have on your forum) - which will actually save you some time, and then uploading them to a sub folder on photobucket.

When you initially install the smf smilies, you only get the first 16. To get them all (except the embarassed one), you need to manually install the rest of them by doing this:

Go to:
Add Smiley tab
Make sure it says Using Smiley set smf in the dropdown

Use the second dropdown (that says filename to the right of it) and browse thru the smileys to find
the rest of them.    (if you dont remember which ones you need, open a 2nd browser window and go to admin cp > smileys and message icons > edit smileys - to see the ones you already have)

When you find one you want, put a code for it. Something like
Code: [Select]
:-). You can put words there as well.

Put a Tooltip or description for it:  (just something to describe it)

Once you get those akl installed, follow this guide "step by step" and it will show you how to swap those smilies out with the ones you are wanting to use.

http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_how_to_replace_smileys_in_smf_112-t3679.0.html;msg18467#msg18467

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

to get the smileys from that site you want, while you are in the edit smilies page on your forum, write down all those smily names - includng the ".gif". Right click on each smiley you want from that site and click SAVE AS. name it one of the names on that list you wrote down - making sure the FILETYPE is .GIF. save it to your computer. (its probably easiest to set up a folder on your desktop to put them all in so they will be together). Do this for EACH smiley you are wanting off that site. Once you get them on your computer, follow that above guide.

Is this the smiley you meant? (https://www.smfsupport.com/support/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi102.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fm105%2Fmysmileyplace%2FMSP%2520files%2Fjust%2520cuz%2FJust_Cuz_06.gif&hash=6f26cc9bb64aff60e020f3f9ba24d1c5).

  To get them all (except the embarassed one),

So that everyone knows...  the embarassed smiley is no longer an issue and has been fixed.
There were originally two of them in the add smiley section and only one worked, the other showed a red x.
They now both work, and you can replace both of them.  (embarrassed.gif and embarassed.gif)

I wanted those on the bottom. Do you know where to find them?

They do not show up in the Add Smileys section after installing the smf smileys if you are using smfforfree3.  It "could" be he has limited the number of smileys on that server, I am not sure.  I am not sure about mysmf and freesmfhosting.   I have sent him a message about this today and will let you know , when I find out.

If you are on another server:   (smfforfree, smfforfree2)   
 
You can add the others manually.
Go to:
Add Smiley tab
Make sure it says Using Smiley set smf in the dropdown

Use the second dropdown (that says filename to the right of it) and browse thru the smileys to find
the rest of them.    You will see them on that screen to see if they are THERE and the ones you want.
When you find one you want:
Put a code for it:   
explanation:     code for  :)  is
Code: [Select]
:)you can put words there
Put a Tooltip or description for it:  (just something to describe it)
Click Save Changes

(hint.. keep a window open here and you can see when you have em all)

That error happens every time someone tries to install the smf smileys but they will still work. Not sure why.. its something that SMF needs to fix.

I went to your forum to see what your smileys look like but you have no boards visible to guests (which is against SMF TOS). You need to make one visible so someone can see what your seeing and they can help.

If you have tried to add it via the "add smiley" tab and it still shows up that way, that means there is an error in that folder with that smiley - it usually means its no longer there or the name has changed, and there is nothing we can do to fix it. SMF will have to take care of it. Just make it hidden so noone sees the red x when they are posting.

The SMF smiley set is broken. When I go to add that set, I get the following error:

If I try to make that directory my Default Smiley set, NONE of my smileys work.

as Kimmie said,  that message comes up when you do it, but they still work fine so ignore that message..

I have added this to the Guide:
Quote
If you get this message ignore it, the smileys are already in the directory:
Unable to import smiley set.  Either the directory is invalid or cannot be accessed.

Did you read my previous message?

one other thing to make sure of...   are you POSITIVE there are no spaces after (or before)  the smf url you put in base url.   Even one space there will foul it up and it wont work.

Okay, this is weird. I went to re-add the smiley set and this time it went off without a hitch. The SMF smiley set is loaded, and it's set to default and everything appears to be working and in order.

Until I go back to the forums and go to post. The "Classic" smileys are still showing up. Does it take some time for that change to take effect?

Even though you set it to default in the smiley settings you HAVE to set it in Current Theme as well so that THAT smiley set is the DEFAULT smiley set for THAT theme.    :)

You can replace them on any of the servers.  You'll be changing the base url again to your photobucket url.   Follow this guide completely:

There are only 22 because thats all the smileys you are allloted on your forum. If those 22 smileys are showing up as Red X's, recheck the names of the ones you uploaded to your image hosting account. They have to have the EXACT same names as the ones that you see on the list when you are on the "Edit Smileys" tab on your forum. (including the file type which is ".GIF"). If those names are correct, then try deleting that new smiley set you created and going back through the guide step by step. Dont bypass any of the steps or the smileys will not work.

You should be able to I would think.   Make an album there (folder-whatever it is called with their service) and put the smileys into that album.   When putting the url into the base url area do NOT put the album name, only the url.   The album name will be your new smiley set name.    The forum will check that base url for that name and find the smileys in that album/folder.    Make sure they are all named exactly as the exisiting smileys.   Basically follow the steps exactly in the tut and itll work for ya!

Yes, the smilies in your pb account have to have the "same exact names" as the smileys that are already on your forum or they wont work. In your other topic you posted about this, the guide I gave you the link for states this as well, which is why you need to follow it "step by step".

No, you can only replace the # of smileys that you orginally have. If you want more smileys, the only option is by following this guide:

http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_how_to_use_the_smf_smileys_you_see_here_at_support-t3739.0.html;msg18668#msg18668

The above guide will install the smileys you see here at support - which will increase your total number of smileys. Then you can replace them by using the first guide I showed you:

Not sure what you mean by "one smile". You have more than one smiley on your forum. The guides I gave you walk you through "replacing" ALL the smileys that are already on your forum, with new ones,  but you have to follow the guide step by step or it will not work.


Hi how do I put smiles in my forum every time I try I get a x box
please can someone help me?

If you are seeing red x's that probably means that you did not name your new smileys correctly. They have to be the EXACT same names as the smileys that are already on your forum or they wont show up.

RS - the tutorial works for all of the forums.   I changed the subject on the first post .. it doesnt change them all..
edit-  have changed the titles of the smiley guides to hopefully stop confusion
please realize..    IF a new MAJOR version of simplemachines software is released and IF a day comes that SMF installs it he will let us know.    IF the tutorial  will NOT work for some reason with that version we will make sure to write a new one that will.     

from 1.1 to 1.14 its been just minor little bug fixes, security stuff etc etc,,..    nothing major.
they update the software sometimes...  just like your virus scanner should be doing updates..

See the Edit Smileys link in Smileys and Message icons?
Click on that.
You will then see a page that shows the smileys you have.
Look at the titles of the columns.    You will see "Filenames"

write down the filenames you see there or leave that window open so you can refer to it.
You need to name your smileys those exact file names.

You can use only the filenames available in that dropdown box.   So no, you can not add other filenames.

I know it is abit confusing given it is different  (how many you can have) on different servers.    ???   so I added that blurb at the bottom of the Guide to "try" to help with that

Some things to check but Ive got to go now....

Make sure you have the correct url in the Base Url box.   
Do not put the url to your album at Photobucket, put only your Photobucket url. 
Make sure you didnt put a space after it  (common mistake)

Make sure you put the name of the album your smileys are in as the new smiley set.

Make sure you went to Current Theme and chose the new smiley set (same name as your album name) in the dropdown box.

Make sure you uploaded your smileys in to the album at PB and that they have the exact same filenames that you see in edit smileys.

In the "Edit Smileys" tab you'll see the file names for each emoticon.  I personally highlighted all of them, copied and pasted in my AOL "write message" box.  You see, for your photobucket emoticons to link to your forum you need to name your photobucket Smileys with the exact same name as the FILE NAME under "Edit Smiley" tab.

Title: Re: [Guide] Help with Adding Smilies
Post by: LaundryLady on January 05, 2008, 04:50:01 am
First do you have them hosted?  Secondly, do you have them named correctly.  The file name should read at the end for example:

angry.gif
azn.gif
grin.gif



no spaces in the names or it won't work.  The following is something I have been working on for my own use to help me with the smilieys.  It took me a long time to get my mind to understand how to get them up there.  Now it's so easy I am embarrassed.

On your computer, in My Pictures, make a new folder for the smilies you are going to use.  Any smilies you use must be in GIF format.

When you find a smiley you want to use, save image(using right click) to this folder.  I have used a download from http://smileymagick.com/ to illustrate the procedures.  You can use any images that you like.

THE FOLOWING IS AN EXAMPLE WHEN YOU COPY THEM TO THE COMPUTER:
(https://www.smfsupport.com/support/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi137.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fq232%2FLaundryLady1947%2FSmilie%2520Guide%2Fth_Smilie1.jpg&hash=0d104da9c9024f178f1dc57a4bb4bd09) (http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q232/LaundryLady1947/Smilie%20Guide/Smilie1.jpg)


After you have them on your computer, you must rename them to match the smiley names on your forum.

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW THEY LOOK AFTER YOU HAVE RENAMED THEM :
(https://www.smfsupport.com/support/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi137.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fq232%2FLaundryLady1947%2FSmilie%2520Guide%2Fth_Smilie2.jpg&hash=7a0736526e96cbeddd46ae2c268bdc87) (http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q232/LaundryLady1947/Smilie%20Guide/Smilie2.jpg)


If you are using Photobucket, you will have your Main Album called: "Mydangphotobucketaccount"

In that account make a sub album called anything you want; for examply "SMFsmileys"

In that account make a sub album called whatever those smileys are for: "Valentines"

So it would be:

Mydangphotobucketaccount/smfsmileys/valentines

Upload your renamed smileys from your computer to the "Valentines" album.

Each time you want a new set of smileys, make a new sub album in the SMFsmileys album and give them an individual name such as christmas, winter, spring, easter. Whatever you are going to use them for.

Then follow Sybil's excellent instructions for putting them in your forum.  She has been the best help to me to get me to understand all this stuff.

Biggest errors I see are related to the following:

1.  What address did you put in as the base url?    Do NOT put in the entire url WITH the sub album name at the end.

You need to put this in as the base url:
http://s269.photobucket.com/albums/jj49/cindyvic/My%20Smilies

It is trying to find your smiley set, "smilies",  under cindyvic and since that is not where it is located it cannot find it.

Still red x's .

Okay let's backtrack.
Step 3 in the Guide.   When you created a new smiley set did you name it smilies?

The word smilies has to be in both boxes in this picture where it says album name:

(https://www.smfsupport.com/support/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi148.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fs20%2Fsmfstyles%2Fsmileyhelp1.png&hash=237845df0593ca398ab8bf2b988e4a66)

Then under the Settings tab:   Double check to be sure you have "smilies" chosen as the default set.
Make sure under Current THeme you have smilies chosen as well.
Title: Re: Help with Adding Smilies
Post by: simply sibyl on January 05, 2008, 03:04:01 pm
bettamom.   I logged into your forum to check and I can tell by checking properties that you have the incorrect URL for the Base Url.

Put in:   http://s269.photobucket.com/albums/jj49/cindyvic/My%20Smilies/

Do NOT put smilies at the end of that... that is how you currently have it.    Because of that it is trying to find an additional smilies folder UNDER the smilies folder.

I have 3 albums at my photobucket . One is cindyvic, one is My Smilies , & one is smilies . Could that be messing it up ?

It will work fine the way you have it at Photobucket but only if you set it correctly in your forum settings.

You have the wrong url for the Base Url.
Put:   http://s269.photobucket.com/albums/jj49/cindyvic/My%20Smilies/     as the Base Url

Your smiley set HAS to be named:    smilies       because that is the name of the folder the smileys are in.
So make SURE you have  smilies as the name of the set, and that its chosen in Current Theme.

If you have all of that correct it will work.

Biggest errors I see are related to the following:

1.  What address did you put in as the base url?   
     Do NOT put in the entire url WITH the sub album name at the end.   
           a.  If your smileys are in  http://myphotobucketaccount/myname/mysmileys   
                then put only http://myphotobucketaccount/myname   in as the base url.     
     
2.   Did you name the new smiley set the SAME name as the sub album the smileys are in at photobucket?
           a.  using the above example your new smiley set name would be "mysmileys"
           b.  the forum will look in  http://myphotobucketaccount/myname for the "mysmileys" subalbum

Admin > Smileys and Message Icons > Edit Smileys

You'll see a row there with the filenames listed in it.

You can also see them under Add Smileys in the filename dropdown box

it has come to my attention that some images "cant be processed by photobucket".. dang..

but it showed up in the forum.. is that a photobucket glitch?
Title: Re: Help with Adding Smilies
Post by: simply sibyl on February 25, 2008, 07:18:27 pm
umm  Im not exactly sure how to reply as I do not know what you uploaded lol
They do all need to be .gifs in order to work  (the smileys that is)
Photobucket will allow you to upload some specific filetypes..  gif files are no problem with them..

So..  Im abit confused?

It could have been some momentary glitch with PB..  Check to be sure all of your images are there.

You cannot add more. You can only replace the existing ones.   
There are a couple of codes in the code index for some other options..  little dropdown boxes where they can get the smileys from.   Codes Index (http://www.smfsupport.com/support/smf_for_free_codes/smf_for_free_codes_index-t4185.0.html;msg20773#msg20773)

You can not add additional smileys, you can only replace the ones on your forum.

Or check the codes index for a smiley code to add a little box with more in it.. it wont be in the post area but it does work well.     (look in the smiley category in the code index)

I do not know which Guide you are following.

If you are using the one for replacing your smileys with your own go back to the Guide and read thru the Troublesheeting section at the bottom of the Guide.

Also check thru Edit Smileys and see that you have them all set to "Post Area"   
If y ou have any set to "Hidden" Modify them and change them to post area so they will show up.

If you are using the one for Using the smileys you see here at support..   read back carefully thru that guide as well.   It tells you that you will not automatically have all of them installed and will have to add some of them.   It tells you how to do that.    It also tells you which servers will NOT have ALL of the ones you see here.

Hello Everyone,

I installed the smf smiley set into my forum..but am only getting 15 of them. From the angel on..I can't see them. I am running ver 1.1.5. I would really like to get at least the police smiley on my forum. Can anyone help? Also..I cannot get the smiley's to show up on the quick reply unless I select preview 1st. Is there a setting that I am missing somewhere to enable this. any response would be much appreciated. Thanks

So many questions and so little coffee, LOL.  Your server number determines how many smilies you have.  Please give us your forum URL so we know what we are dealing with.  Are you on a SMFforFree service?  We need to make sure you are in the right place before we get started.

You should have 22.
Check Edit smileys.. see if any are set to Hidden.. if they are , change them to Post area.
Check Add Smileys.. see if any are listed there that you do not already have.. if so .. add them there.

Go back thru the troubleshooting section.
If it still does not work I need to know:

1.  What did you put in as the base url
2.  What did you name the smiley set when you created the new set
3.  Did you go to Admin > Current Theme and set the new set as the default in the dropdown box.
