PostSubject: CUSTOM SMILIES info and how-to   Mon Feb 05, 2018 2:03 pm

I have a new addition for our site that some of you might like.  We have quite a few smilies (255 I believe) but now you can add some for yourself to use.  

FIRST: Please do not use HUGE smilies as they'll likely jack up pages/posts.  Use common sense.
SECOND: Keep things relatively appropriate!

Alright, on to the HOW-TO.....

1. On the main page of our forum, left side under the various links you should see your avatar, below it your post count, below that private messages (we don't use those) and below that it should say

MY PROFILE

Click that!

***DO NOT FUCKING TOUCH AVATARS or SIGNATURES!!!  I'll ban you, I'll boot you or I might even kill you.  Don't be THAT GUY.***


2. You'll see a section right in front of you for PERSONAL SMILIES.  Click in that field on the right side.
a. Paste an image URL into the input field. ( a preview of your emoticon will display on the left )
b. Click the "+" button to add more emoticons. ( optional )
c. Click the "Update" button to update the textarea.
d. Save your profile changes.
e. Your new emoticons should now be available ![/b]

3. Uploading Custom Emoticons
If you don't have a direct link to an image, but a file on your computer, you can use the upload button. Clicking this button will open servimg so that you can upload your emoticons.

4. Deleting Custom Emoticons
Tired of the emoticons you've added and want to remove them ? Go to your edit profile page, click the textarea for the "Personal Emoticons" field, and follow the steps below !
a. Click the "-" button to remove a custom emoticon.
b. Click the "Update" button to update the textarea.
c. Save your profile changes.
d. The emoticon is now obliterated !

5. Sorting Custom Emoticons
Are your emoticons not in the right order ? Don't worry, you can sort them ! To sort emoticons, go to your edit profile page, click the textarea for the "Personal Emoticons" field, and follow the steps below !
a. Click the up or down buttons to change the position of your emoticons.
b. Click the "Update" button to update the textarea when you're done sorting.
c. Save your profile changes.
d. Everything is in order now !

6. Using Custom Emoticons
Custom Emoticons are just like any other emoticon, except they're defined by you, the user ! To use custom emoticons, simply proceed to a topic, open the emoticon drop down ( or choose them from the side ), and scroll to the bottom of the emoticon list if necessary. Your custom emoticons will always be at the bottom of the emoticon list. Simply click the emoticon to add it to your post!

7. Why wont my emoticons update ?
If you updated your emoticons on another computer or device and they didn't update on the other, go to Edit Profile, click the textarea for your personal emoticons, and click the update button -- no need to save. Clicking the update button, clears the cache for your personal emoticons, so the next time you use the emoticons you'll see the new ones ! Your personal emoticons are cached in browser storage, allowing them to load quickly without sending any additional requests to the server. So you can also clear your browser cache to update the emoticon list.

MAKE SURE YOU CLICK SAVE ON YOUR PROFILE PAGE WHEN YOU'RE DONE!!!!!




As always, let me know if you have any trouble.

ENJOY!

Well, doesn't look like it's working. Hmmmm. I can do it all but it's not displaying as an optional section of the smilies.

Well shit...I don't want them all displaying under your avatar. I'm not sure why they aren't going with the rest of the smilies....

Alright, I hid them. So Matt, where are you seeing them when you post? Because I am not seeing them for use.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I figured it out. Sweet.

When you follow the instructions people, your custom smilies will be at the bottom of the main list of smilies. I thought there was gonna be a new section titles CUSTOM SMILIES but there's not.


YAY!!!! This worked!

A long time favorite that for some reason I was never able to load for everyone but loaded for me this way....


I will try again later to get it loaded for the entire group.

You should be able to change it by putting in this code:

Code:
[img(25px,25px)]http://emojis.slackmojis.com/emojis/images/1483822008/1552/awesome.gif?1483822008[/img]

And change the 25 px to whatever you want


EDIT - It doesn't look like you can edit the code. Everytime you click on it you get an input box for a url. So that fix won't work.

You could try hosting the image somewhere and see if you can find a smaller one (yup, not a great fix).

That size is fine. Personally I wouldn't likely go any bigger than that size.
