I have just about finished adding the new features that Aidan had given the ideas for as listed here. This is a MAJOR release of WP Smileys Plugin for WordPress. This release adds many new features and security to the orginal plugin. In this release, the most notiable change is the new options page. Here you will be able to set if comments can use smileys, if to use the WP Comment Quicktags Plus Plugin’s quicktags toolbar to add a Smileys Button, which smileys that will be allowed for the Admin Write Pages and allowed in posts, and finally which smileys that will be allowed for the Comment Form and allowed in comments. Also there is an added security to what smileys will be processed and displayed in posts or comments depending on which smiley lists are enabled.
Well the code for the next release has already been put in place, the only thing that I need to do is add a Manage Smileys Management Page that will allow the user(s) to add, edit, customize, and remove all of the smileys that can be used. I will also add to the WP Smileys Option Page an option for the min. user level so that only certain users can control the settings of WP Smileys.
Would Be Nice …
It would be neat to be able to allow some type of access control to the settings so that users could create their own smileys list to use and display, somewhat like that WP uses to control the posts, categories, and settings for users. That would be alot of work and code, but maybe possible … right now I’m not going to worry about working on that. My main concern is to another plugin that I’m working on, the File Press Plugin.
So here is all the good stuff …
