  • Style specific smilies.

    I have members that gawk at my choice of a dark style so, I found a style everyone agrees on. (Almost everyone)

    Since both styles get their smilies from the same location, "forums/images/smilies/grin.gif", how can I make the lighter style (almost white) get it's smilies from a different folder? The smilies for the dark style look really rough on the light colored style and I want to use a set made for light styles.

    Did that make sense? ... longggg day.

    Edit your smilie paths:

    Admin CP -> Smilies -> Smilie Manager -> [View] -> [Edit]

    In the Smilie File Path use something like this:

    {smiliepath}/image.gif

    Then create a replacement variable for each style:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Replacement Variable Manager -> [Add New Replacement Variable]

    Create the replacement variable like this:

    Search for Text - {smiliepath}
    Replace with Text - images/smilies

    You can specify a different path for each style.

      Let me make sure I understand. Presently a path to the smilies looks like this
      Code:
      http://www.publicwarriors.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif
      .

      If I understand you correctly That file path can look like this using your suggestion,
      Code:
      {smiliepath}images/smilies
      Is that correct?

        Correct. You can substitute the actual location with your replacement variable.
