    You can adjust the Smilie File Path from the Smilie Manager, although that looks a little tedious as it appears you have to move each one manually.

    Or, try this query...
    Code:
    UPDATE
        smilie
    SET
        smiliepath = replace(smiliepath,'http://www.pitbikeclub.co.uk/vb/images','http://www.pitbikeclub.co.uk/images')
    WHERE
        smiliepath 
    LIKE '%http://www.pitbikeclub.co.uk/vb/images'
    It looks like the post icons will need to be adjusted in a similar manner as well.
    Lats...

        ended up using this recently
        disapointed that moving a forum to a new domain or folder requires invention and running a SQL query but I appreciate the help

        used a few changes
        Code:
        UPDATE
            smilie
        SET
            smiliepath = replace(smiliepath,'http://www.pitbikeclub.co.uk/vb/images','http://www.pitbikeclub.co.uk/images')
        WHERE
            smiliepath 
        LIKE '%http://www.pitbikeclub.co.uk/vb/images%'
        dont forget to check the table prefixes
        see the red % for an addition that I needed

          Please note that this is the major reason that by default these are relative paths and not hard-coded URLs. It is recommended you keep these are relative paths so the same situation does not occur in the future.

            I surely didn't hard code urls in 70 smileys... I dont know how it happened - BUT looking at the number of posts with similar issues - it seems VERY common

              after running the SQL script it corrected the smilie path which made the smilies appear in the create thread window
              BUT when you click them and click submit the smilies STILL have the OLD path on them in the posted info - Likely getting screwed by the datastore again

              need to remember to then go to smilies and edit one and save to update the datastore

                Note that after running any manual query, it's generally necessary to update forum information, or counters etc.
