Number 2. Thank you, I think that worked. Also, how many smileys are we allowed to have?

Should be 22
Go to the Add Smileys page - use the dropdown box - you'll see the filenames there.
Should have the following:
afro, angel, angry, azn, cheesy, cool, cry, embarrassed, evil, grin, huh, kiss, laugh, lipsrsealed, police, rolleyes, sad, shocked, smiley, tongue, undecided, wink

You can only replace the ones that exist - you cannot add to them.
If you want more smileys you need to purchase the Custom Smiley Upgrade via Admin>Adfree&UPgrades
After purchasing the upgrade use this guide instead:  Custom Smileys Help

Nothing. You can use another photo host if you'd like.

Start all over again.  Step by painstaking step.  I hope someday SMF puts in a better system for doing those silly smiles, cause the way we have to do it now is a pain in the keister.


rembers you saying that lol.

Go back to the Guide and go thru the Troubleshooting directions - It has all the questions I would ask you to help fix it

Forum Url: http://iamcrazy.smfforfree4.com
I'm sorry if this is here and I overlooked it... Is there a way to add more smileys rather than just changing what exists? I have been on some smfforfree forums that had at least 50 smileys but I can't find anything to help me do that.

There is no way to add more to that area, sorry.
The forums where you see more are the forums on the original server from years ago that are smfforfree (no number in the url) .   There used to be the ability to upload smileys back then.   That ability has been disabled and he has said it will not ever be re-enabled.   In a nutshell all  you can do is replace the existing ones , using the Guide.    There is a code in the Codes Index for using a little dropdown box thing to add more of your own.   You can click on them while in a post box to use them.    I realize its not the same as having them right there in the post area but its all we have at the moment.

Is this still relevant today?  We can see the smileys but cannot put them on the forum?  I tried deleting the afro.gif with its code of 00 and putting in the crying.gif using the afro code and name and it just printed out the words crying gif.

Does this mean the free forum from SMF has us locked into the lame smileys?

I followed this [Guide] How to replace your Smileys: http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides-and-tutorials/%28guide%29-how-to-replace-your-smileys/

I was able to load 18 of my personal smiles from photobucket to my Recipe Forum.

If you have trouble put your smileys back to Default, then start over again, it may take you a few times but just keep trying!

The the Custom Smiley Upgrade is a One time fee of $20.00 and well worth it, we have that for our Pogo Friends Forum.

Good Luck
