  • Smilies not working at all

    When I installed vB back in the spring, I made an error of some kind and only two smilies have ever worked. Today I finally turned my attention toward the smilie issue, but without luck.

    There are two issues that I can see. First, in imported smilies, there are a bunch of text names (e.g., icon_e_eek.gif) but no images. I don't even remember installing these, and I see no evidence of them in the images folder. Should I just delete these??

    Second, I just tried uploading a new bunch of smilies. They appear in the images folder when I look in cpanel. However, I cannot see them anywhere else. When I open a new post, they are not available in the smilies list. When I tried to upload one (again) through the Smilies Manager, it told me that that gif already existed.

    Any idea what gives?

    Okay, I seem to have gotten all the actual gifs working. The key, for some reason, was to choose "Add smilies" in the Smilie Manager. Adding is apparently a separate, but necessary, step from uploading!?

    My next question is how can I re-order the smilies in the little box next to the "post reply" window?

    Right now it shows one very active animation, which I definitely want to offer, but would prefer to move lower down in the mix.

      Okay, and now I have figured out how to order the smilies, namely by using the order function.
