This screen allows you to add one or more images at a time. These images must already reside on the server, having been uploaded using the Upload Smilie option or by FTP prior to doing this.
You can either add a single image or add multiple images at the same time.
Adding a single new Smilie
Don't forget to upload the smilies to your core/images/smilies/ directory first before using this feature. If you don't know how to do that you can also use the alternative feature to manually upload a smilie.
This is the title you want to give to describe your smilie, for example, ‘Happy Face’
- Text to Replace
This is the replacement text for the smilie. When a user types this text in a post, it will get replaced with the smilie image.
- Smilie File Path
Type the path and filename of the smilie you want to add. An example would be images/smilies/happy.gifNote:This path is relative to the core directory. Best practice is to add all smilies to the core/images/smilies giving a path of images/smilies/filename
- Smilie Category
This drop down box will have all the possible smilies categories - select one to add this smilie to this category.
- Display Order
If you know which order you'd like to give to your smilie you can enter it here. This is an optional field, if you don't know what the display order should be you can leave this field empty. You can always change it later. View the Smilie Display Order article for more information.
Adding Multiple Smilies
- Smilie Category
This drop down box will have all the possible smilies categories - select one to add all the smilies to.
- Smilies File Path
Type the path and not filename of the smilies directory you want to add. An example would be images/smilies/newones/ (if you have uploaded your smilies to the newones/ directory)Note:This path is relative to the core directory. Best practice is to add all smilies to the core/images/smilies giving a path of images/smilies/filename
- Smilies to Show Per Page
This is the number of images to display per page while adding them.
