    Smilies and Emoticons are two different features.

    Emoticons are specific feature of UTF-8 Fonts and require a UTFMB4 database on the server. Smilies are a series of images that can be inserted inline.

    If you're having issues with either, it is better to create your own topic and actually tell us what isn't working. There isn't any information in this post to even know what your issue is.

    Here is a 512px example to give you an idea of the original quality. The shrunken version is slightly pixelated, but not enough to annoy me. The 48px could be cleaned up a little though.

    I just purchased the Animated Emoji 2.0 set from joypixels.com. Their default sizes are quite large but they were very friendly and when I asked if they could supply the emojis in 48px x 48px they were happy to do so. They are really nice emojis. I completely swapped out the smilies for these and am one happy camper.

    ok, understood. I wasn't sure if it was automatic.

    You have to have a Smilie assigned to that key combination in the current versions.

    Hey Wayne,
    When I type "" in my forum it does not automatically change to a smiley when posting, it says as a colon and a parathesis. What do we need to change to get it to work like it does here?

    It's nice that the VB dev team is looking at upgrading CKEditor, but that is not the interface users want for emojis. People are used to picking emojis by browsing all the emoji icons. The CkEditor route requires users to know the name of the emoji, which isnt possible with 1600+ icons. I guess the issue is that showing 1600+ icons on the screen at the same time is not feasible, so we'll need to have tabs or some other ability to section search group of emojis (just like they do on mobile phones)

    No it doesn't. Emojis work right now in vBulletin 5 using a UTF-8 HTML character set and utfMB4 MySQL character set.

    Those in the link are not using any sort of replacement text and the user can select them directly from their phone or other device. The Emoji standard uses FONTS not Images.

    However, one of the improvements that upgrading CKEditor allows us to do is to add a panel of sorted Emoji right into the editor. Using an interface and categories similar to the ones on the phones, people can pick and choose right in the editor.

    We are not planning on updating the Smilies included in the software. We can't maintain 1600 Smilies along with a new 100 images added every year. In fact, with Emoji support, they are redundant. The OS and Browser will support the existing ones and will be updated with the new ones every year. We'll have to look into renaming Smilies something like Stickers so people can still use their custom images.

    If you absolutely insist on using emoticons I'd recommend ICU CDLR. Personally I would rather users use words since emoticons don't exactly encourage discussion but to each her or his or own. All emoticons are based upon Unicode in any case.

    CKEditor has clickable smilies, always has had. You don't need to know the name of the smilie.

    Just click the smilie button to expand the list, it will also remember this and keep it expanded until you close it.

    Saying that's, 1600 smilies is very much an edge case, and the software isn't really designed with that many in mind.

    If your vBulletin 5 site is using UTF8MB4 on the database and the UTF-8 HTML character set along with proper fonts, it will support the Emojis from Mobile Devices.

    The emoticons are part of a larger set of improvements in development at the moment.
