    You can upload new smiles from your AdminCP:
    AdminCP->Smilies->Upload Smilie

      forgive my ignorance but how would I do that? I have uploaded to my server in my smilie folder but when I try get to the path in the admincp I get an error


      Warning: copy(./images/smilies/blu_md_wht.gif/blu_md_wht.gif): failed to open stream: Not a directory in /admincp/image.php on line 444

        Your temp dir is perhaps not chmod 755 or 777 - which is required to make proper uploads. Can you attach images to a post?

          I think when uploading a new smilie, you change the value for 'Smilie File Path'.

          In most cases you can leave it to the default value, it should only contain the path to the directory that hold the images, not the filename of the image itself. Also note that you should not use a trailing slash after the directory name, and that the directory should be world writable.

              You could just try to upload a smilie, if that works, it is world-writable.

              Alternative is to check using your FTP client, or command line using SSH/Telnet.

              Using FTP (will work on most FTP clients):
              - Login to your server
              - Navigate to the parent directory of the directory you want to inspect.
              - Right click on the directory, and you should see in the popup a choice named 'chmod' or 'permissions'. Check here if everybody got maximum permissions for that directory (Read, Write, Execute or numeric: 777)

              Using commandline:
              - login to your server using SSH/Telnet if your server support this.
              - go to the parent directory of the directory ou want to inpsect:
              cd /pathtoyourforumhome/images
              - check the permissions of the directory:
              ls -ld smilies
              This should read at the beginning of the line: 'drwxrwxrwx'
