Trouble adding smilies
I admin a board at midohiospeakeasy .com, it's v2.4

I'm trying to add a smiley to the list. I can add it fine, and the gif shows up in the master list on the smiley admin page, but when I go to use it on the board, it only shows an image error block.

The paths are correct and everything - in the right folder, spelled correctly, etc. I'd post a link, but I can't yet. Tongue

Re: Trouble adding smilies
Hi,

Can you try to explain exactly how you added the smilie please, and which directory you uploaded the image to?

Re: Trouble adding smilies
Thanks for the reply!

The file is called "gunsrfun.gif". It's a little guy shooting a gun. I uploaded that to /yabbfiles/smilies where all the other smilies are. Then I went into the smiley admin page in the admin section of the forums, and added it in the "new smilies" section at the top. I gave it a command of :guns and made the description just say "Guns."

Re: Trouble adding smilies
If you've added it to the "Add new Smilies here!" section, then it will need to be uploaded to the yabbfiles/Templates/Forum/default/ directory.

If you've just uploaded it to the 'Smilies' directory, then you should find it will already work with this code:

Code Select All
[smiley=gunsrfun.gif] 


The Add More Smilies page can be a little confusing - I hope that makes sense.
