  • Smilie deletion question.

    Hello there.
    We have been getting a message that our site may be vulnerable to malware. I have found that the problem was that one of our smilies had a path that went to a site that had been reported for malware, i have deleted the smilie in question and made other admin aware that they should upload smilies to our host server rather than use a path to anyone elses.
    My question is this: if i have deleted the smilie will the smilie path link still be there if a user has used it in a post anywhere and if the answer is yes then how do i find all the links to delete them, would i have to use a mysql query?

    Once a smilie is removed, any time it was used in a post should be converted back to the replacement text. The only exception is if you have recent posts cached. You can clear the post cache by running this query:
    TRUNCATE TABLE postparsed
