Smileys not working
May 2nd, 2011 at 3:27pm

HI, I logged onto my forum today and noticed various images had been lost. I re-uploaded them and all appered to be OK.

When I did a few tests I found that the standard smilies would not add to a topic. They appear in the smiley bar OK to select  but do not add.

If I go to View All Smilies, these add OK.

I have tried to re-upload the Yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/Default directory but this does not help.

This is the ink to my Yabb forum.
http://www.ware-joggers.co.uk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hi -

The actual 'Smiley store' (the image files)  is found under yabbfiles\Smilies.

be sure to upload as Binary.

Also check your Paths.pl in the Admin Center.

in particular the HTML folder and URL - at least in YaBB 2.4 and above.

in older forums, the settings for 'Public_HTML'.


Good Luck

HI - Thanks for the promt reply.

All the paths are correct and all was working fine up until yesterday. No changes have been to my Yabb configuration.

If you click on a smilie in the Smilie block nothing happens.

If you select "View All Smilies"  and then click on one of these they all work. Even if you pick a smiley that also appears in the Smilie block it works OK but not if you select it from the block.

Not sure about my terminology, when I refer to "Smile block" I mean the row of standard Smilies that appear when you are posting.

Thanks

OK -

You didn't say what version of YaBB you have installed.

I'm pretty sure that the 'smiley' block (insert) is an embedded javascript and I believe it is ubbc.js.

Do the rest of the controls in the composition window work?

If not - could be a 'no-java' situation. Maybe you disabled java to a security thing?

if the other controls work, could be the permissions on ubbc.js

1st suggestion - try it on a different machine,

Good Luck
