You need to put a check in "Enable customized smileys"  on the Settings page

I followed all the steps and I don't have the add smiley tab
I only have 16 smileys, not the 22 for smfforfree3.com?

i dont get step 2. "put smf in both boxes" what does that mean? because it shows up with the smfboards.com/smileys/ thing at the top, anf if i put smf in the box it comes up with an error.

Just to Say A Big Thank You For This Post......So Easy To Understand..Your A Real Star..Kev  :angel:
When you click on New Smiley Set you will get a box.

Where is says Name type smf  in the box
Where is says URL type smf in the box
Checkmark both of the other options
If you get this message ignore it:
Unable to import smiley set.  Either the directory is invalid or cannot be accessed.

Reality Or Residual ? You Decide.

I am going to attempt this...I had tried to add some but the 2 options you have where you click on one or the other to add..won't let me click the second option stays on the first option no matter..



NOTICE:     This Guide shows you only how to REPLACE your smileys with the smileys you see here at Support.
If you wish to upload smileys to your forum you can purchase the smiley upgrade.   Click on the "Upgrade this Forum" link at the bottom of your forum or go to Admin>Addons & Upgrades to purchase the upgrade.


To use the smileys you see here at Support:

Step 1:

  • Admin > Smileys and Message Icons > Settings tab.
    Base URL to all smiley sets:   Copy this url - put it in as the base url:  http://www.smfboards.com/Smileys/
    Note:  Be sure this url is EXACTLY as above.. no spaces before or after or it will NOT work
    Put a checkmark for :  enable customized smileys
    Click Save

Step 2:

  • Click the Smiley Sets tab
    Click New Smiley Set button
    Put  smf in both boxes
    Checkmark both blocks
    Save Changes

    NOTE:   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.


Step 3:

  • Click Current Theme
    Select default smiley set for this theme:   Use the dropdown box and choose smf
    Click Save
    Your smileys will now be in place.   

Step 4:

  • There are 10 additional smileys you can add:

    :2funny: :buck2: :coolsmiley: :crazy2: :idiot2: :knuppel2: :smiley6600: :smitten: :tickedoff: :uglystupid2:

    To add them:
    Click the Add Smiley tab
    Make sure it says Using Smiley set smf in the dropdown

    Using the second dropdown (that says filename to the right of it) browse thru the smileys to find
    the rest of them. 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

How to put your smileys back to Default
In case you decide to put your smileys back to the forum default smileys.


Admin > Smileys and Message Icons

1.  Click the Settings tab.

        Default Smiley Set:     Change it to Default.

        Base URL to all smiley sets:   Use http://text.smfforfree.com/Smileys for the base url.
        NOTE   Replace text.smfforfree.com with YOUR forums url.
        Do not leave a space at the end of it when pasting it in.
        Click Save.

2. Click the Smiley Sets tab.   
    Make sure there is an asterick (*) beside the Default Set.

3. Admin > Current Theme:   
    Select default smiley set for this theme:  Choose Default in the dropdown box.   
    Click Save.

That is all there is to putting them back to default.

when you are trying to add the smiley...I can't unclick the "Use Existing File "  so that I can add my own.  
see below...   :crazy2:


Here you can add a new smiley - either from an existing file or by uploading new ones.
  Smiley Sets    Add Smiley    Edit Smileys  Set smiley order  Settings    


Image Source:
 Use Existing File  (using smiley set:  Default /Classic /Emoticons)  
Don't want to use existing file




Add new smiley
(This is what I want to do.Using my own code etc. from my emoticons if I can.)
Code:  
Tooltip or description:  
Location:   Post form /Hidden /Popup  
 






On which step?
