Smileys


Info About This Plugin: :ponder_tb:
Orginally I released this plugin under a different name, WP Smileys. I wanted to have smileys for my posts and comments form for me and anyone to use. I found WP Grins by Alex King from here, but it was some what limited. I really didn’t like the default WordPress smilies and wanted to add more and better ones to the system. So that’s when I wanted to try to hack together so type of mod to the WP Grins plugin and in the long run, created my very own plugin that doesn’t resemble WP Grins at all! There are alot of features built into this plugin that just go beyond what WordPress and WP Grins has. First of all, all of the settings and options are set/managed via the Admin Panel, nothing at all is set in the plugins files so you don’t have to worry about having to edit the file(s) and screwing anything up. If you really want to, you can though change the layout of your Smileys Popup Page by editing the lmbbox-smileys-popup.php file in the lmbbox-smileys folder, more directions are in the readme.txt and the plugin’s files.

Using the LMB^Box Smileys Options Page, you can set the Minimum User Level to change and manage LMB^Box Smileys Settings, if to display Smileys in comments, if to add a button to the Comment Quicktags Toolbar (LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin), and what display settings for all of the Smileys Lists for both the Admin Write Pages and Comment Form Smileys Popup Page. In the LMB^Box Smileys Lists Management Page, you can set the path to the Smileys Images, the default Disabled Smiley Image, the Disabled Smiley Image Prefix, and you can add, edit, manage, and remove all of the Smileys Lists along with disabling any certain Smileys that you don’t what to be used in either the Admin Write Pages or Comment Form.

Just a Note: If you turn off the display of a Smileys List or disable a Smiley in a Smileys List or have the Display Smileys in Comments set to ‘No,’ then WordPress and LMB^Box Smileys plugin will not process and display that Smiley(s) Image(s) in either the post (if Admin Write Pages) and/or the comment (Comment Form). The only thing that will be displayed is the Smiley(s) Tag Code. Also if you do set Display Smileys in Comments to ‘No,’ then no Smileys Button will be displayed in the Comment Quicktags Toolbar (if add button to Comment Quicktags Toolbar is ‘Yes’ and LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin is activated) but if you manually added a link to the Smileys Popup Page, then that link will still be there of course but it would open a popup window and display an error.

    Will the plugin work with WP 3.x? It stopped working. I don’t see the smiley icon in the WYSIWYG editor.

    Hi. Thanks for this very useful tutorial. But I want to change the color of the icons, the smiley icons. Can it be done? Can I change the color of the smileys? Instead from yellow, I want to make it gray or blue perhaps?

    Ben, if you delete the plugin folder, it will deactivate automatically. What version of WordPress are you using?

    i will put it onn my blog :D

    Cool smiley. I love this plugin. Thanks a lot.

  7. Posted June 19, 2009 at 3:31 pm | Permalink

    Just installed it on WP2.8 and got almost 100 smilies extra. It works very simple!

    But I had a little problem with the smilies already posted in my blog: They were shown as code instead of a smiley.

    After a quick fix in the *.php of the wp folder (putting extra code like :cry: :mrgreen: :twisted: etc) the smilies showed up again.

    Hope to enjoy this for a long time. To add the little yellow monsters my self is a thing I like to do next ;-)

    Thanks, Dennis

    Follow-up: I just deleted the smileys plugin folder from ..\plugins … and I can get back to my posts and pages.

    I love the LMB Box Comment Quicktags … but it looks like I’ll have to hold off on the smileys. :o(

    Any thoughts or help would be appreciated because I’d really like to use this plugin.

    See the prior comment for other versions, but what I didn’t add was that I downloaded V3.2 of the Smileys.

    Hi. I just installed the smileys (after installing the LMB Box Quick tags — which works great) and all of a sudden I was having problems editing my pages and posts. IE7 refused to open them and errored out (although I could open them with FF).

    When I tried to remove the smileys to see if that was the cause … I too got the “Your attempt to deactivate this plugin … has failed”.

    I’m running WP 2.7.1 and Atahualpa 3.3.3 with your latest version downloaded from the WordPress site.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks ina advance.

    I’m looking for a plugin that will allow me and my visitors to use emoticons larger than smileys. Like the little “mood” animations for LJ and other sites. Will this plugin allow me to do that?

    Thanks!

    There is any way to remove your plugin???

    Is it possible to circumvent the obligatory space in front of and at the end of a smiley? For my blog I need the smilies inline with the text, it’s just nicer when I write about bridge, diagrams and cards.

    I’ve added a WP support question too here, but no luck so far.

  14. Posted November 2, 2008 at 4:17 pm | Permalink

    I have downloaded this and would like to use my own smilies with it. I have created a directory following the naming convention and given it it’s own config file (and have amended it to match the directory) but I can’t get it to either show up in the settings page or to have the button show up in the write page. I’m on WP 2.6.3 – is this plugin still compatible?

  15. Posted October 28, 2008 at 4:53 pm | Permalink

    I miss this plugin. Any chance of updating this to work with the latest WP?

  16. Posted October 26, 2008 at 7:16 pm | Permalink

    Hi Thomas, tried that (adding a space and moved it). No dice … any ideas?

    Thanks!

  17. Posted October 25, 2008 at 5:23 am | Permalink

    Nicki, please try adding a space after the ‘:mrgreen:’ smiley tag or moving the tag to not be at the very end of your post. Thanks.

  18. Posted October 24, 2008 at 11:21 pm | Permalink

    Ok, maybe I’m missing something, but I noticed that since installing this, only some of the WP default smileys are converting, and some aren’t. For instance, when I type ‘mrgreen’ enclosed in colons, it doesn’t convert to the image like it did before.

    I’ve checked my settings and have ‘WordPress Smileys’ set to default, though I’ve noticed that the “Admin Write Pages Default Smileys List” does not show the selected value once I save my settings. (bug???)

    Any help would be appreciated. I ~could~ fix this with some search and replace in the MySQL, but I was hoping to avoid this, and would rather correct via the plugin.

    (Example: http://tinyurl.com/5b7lje — scroll down to the bottom of the post and see “mrgreen” code printed instead of converted to the appropriate smiley.)

    Thanks!

  19. Posted June 3, 2008 at 7:20 am | Permalink

    Oh. Forgot to say that I can pcik the option but even after saving it just doesn’t stick and remains unmarked.. For the Comments it works like a charm.. Strange, huh ?

    Hi, since my update to WordPress 2.5.1 I’m having trouble with smilies in my posts.
    Admin Write Pages Default Smileys List won’t be set to WordPress smileys.. :-( Any ideas ?

  21. Posted April 11, 2008 at 2:30 am | Permalink

    Hey! when will we get the new version of LMB Box Smileys? The latest one is unfortunately not compatible with WP 2.5! Best regards!

  22. Posted April 1, 2008 at 5:43 am | Permalink

    G, LMB^Box Smileys is always added to the Admin Write section. If you have it active in any WP version that has the WYSIWYG editor, you have to click on the Code tab to switch to the Quicktags to see the button. I have not added a button to the WYSIWYG editor.

    Hello,
    thanks for that great plugin. I got a problem with a new smiley list I created. I can set it do be shown in the popup, but not set it as default. That ist grayed out.

    Ever heared from this problem?

    Jessica, the Minimum Levels are for permissions if you have other users on your blog. They must have the Minimum Level in order to see the Option / Manage Page. That’s good to hear that you figured out the config file! I hope you enjoy the plugin!

  28. Posted December 13, 2007 at 3:47 am | Permalink

    Hi Thomas,

    Okay, I figured it out! :) I did use the config file manually and it worked. :thumbup_tb: Thank you so much for your patience and kindness and time in answering all my questions. :D I can’t thank you enough here. Really appreciate all your help!

  29. Posted December 12, 2007 at 10:37 pm | Permalink

    Thomas,

    THANK YOU!

    After deleting my cookies, it turns out that yes, I could see the Smileys again without any problems. Sorry about that.

    Thanks for answering my other questions. What do the “Minimum Level to Change LMB^Box Smileys Settings” or to “Manage” Settings do respectively? Is it related to being able to “add more Smileys to a List at a single time”?

    You wrote:

    In order to add more Smileys to a List at a single time, you would have to modify the plugin’s management page content.

    I’ve tried to look for a way to modify it, but couldn’t find any. Please accept my apologies if I’m dense on these things. :(

  30. Posted December 12, 2007 at 10:02 pm | Permalink

    Jessica, I just checked and I see the Smileys without any problems and the .htaccess looks good to me.

    ADDED-2007-12-13T03:13:04+00:00:
    Just found what you need to change. You need to update the url setting on the LMB^Box Smileys Mange Page. Also make sure that you update your WordPress site url on the General Options page.

  31. Posted December 12, 2007 at 9:54 pm | Permalink

    Jessica, the 6.2 step is completely optional. I highly recommend it as it’s a savable method of creating a Smileys List. When you follow step 6.1 for creating a Smileys List, you manually added the settings for the new List into your WordPress DB settings. If you remove the plugin and click Ok to remove LMB^Box Smiley Settings, you will lose the new List. In order to add more Smileys to a List at a single time, you would have to modify the plugin’s management page content. I recommend to just create a Smileys List.

    There are two options now for you to create a smiley-list-config.php file. First is the original manual way and the second is by using the Config Creator here. To use the Config Creator, you first need to manually create the Smileys List and all the Smileys. Then when done, you can use the Config Creator.

    In all reality, you should just manually create the Smileys List via a smiley-list-config.php file. You should copy the file from one of the built in Smileys List and just change the values for the options.

  32. Posted December 12, 2007 at 9:53 pm | Permalink

    Hi Thomas,

    I thought that the smileys already worked once I edited my .htaccess page. However, unfortunately, I just realize the smileys images don’t even show up at all when the pop-up box appears. :( I’m pretty sure it’s probably because I didn’t edit htaccess correctly. This is a portion of the code in my .htaccess file:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.pilgrimsprogress.net$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://pilgrimsprogress.net/$1 [R=301,L]
    # Redirect FeedBurner to your own Feed
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^feedburner_141375/?$ /feed/ [R,L]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^FeedBurner.*$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # Feed Redirect Rules will go here
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    Some of the codes are there for my Feedburner. I’m not sure if I overlap some codes or not. Do you happen to know if the above code correct?

    So sorry about this… thanks for any help you can give.

    Oh, one more thing, when I tried to code in the tags for my new smileys in my admin page, it only allows me to do it two at a time. And it slows down the process because I have to keep “updating” and saving the page before new blank fields appear to code in more smiley tags. Any chance I could have code in more smileys at a time?

    Thanks!

    Hi Thomas,

    WOOHOO!! :clap_tb: It does work now. Thanks sooooo much for all of your time and help! :D

    I have one more question regarding how to add my own smileys. I’m adding a folder named “js” to contain my new smileys. I completely understand how to do step #6.1 in the readme file. My new smileys showed up on the pop-up window. However, I’m confused whether or not I need to do step #6.2 that involves editing smiley-list-config.php. It seems to work fine without doing 6.2 for me. Do I just complete step #6.1 and ignore step #6.2? :help_tb:

    If I must do step #6.2, can you please explain how to do it?
    Last time I tried to type in the correct tags for my new smileys by editing the smiley-list-config.php and doing a “sync”, I don’t see my new “js” folder in my admin smileys page.

    Thank you again, Thomas! I really appreciate your help.

  35. Posted December 12, 2007 at 7:51 am | Permalink

    Jessica, I just tracked down the problem! The problem is with the “www” subdomain! The www is normally a CNAME DNS record that just points to your domain (“lmbbox.com”). What is happening is because you are not using a subdomain (blog.lmbbox.com) as your primary site, you have two possible ways to access your site, one with the “www.” and one without the “www.”. When you setup your WordPress blog you used the “www.” as your site url. LMB^Box Smileys pulls that setting and uses it to open the popup window. So, if someone views your site without “www.” and clicks on the LMB^Box Smileys button (opens window with “www.”), Javascript is not allow to access the two pages since they are on different domains / urls! To fix this issue, you have to first decide what address you want to be used, with “www.” or without “www.”. Then you need to update your WordPress site url to follow what you decided. Finally, you need to create an .htaccess file to redirect permanently all traffic from the url you don’t choose to the one you chose. See this thread for more info on writing the .htaccess file: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/108581.

    PS: It looks like to me that you prefer the without “www.” option as your theme’s Home button is pointed to it.

  36. Posted December 11, 2007 at 8:53 pm | Permalink

    Hi Thomas,

    Thank you so much. I look forward to hear your reply on how to fix it. I truly hope it can work in my blog, because it is one great plugin! :D

  37. Posted December 10, 2007 at 7:02 am | Permalink

    Jessica, after a quick look, I see there is a JavaScript error when clicking on a Smiley. I’ll look into this a bit more.

  38. Posted December 10, 2007 at 4:12 am | Permalink

    Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for helping me with the Quicktags plugin, an d for providing this Smileys plugin. I really appreciate it. I installed the Smileys plugin and everything seems fine. However, when I click on one of the icons, no smiley shows up on my comment box. :sad_wp: After reading the above comments to check if my problem has already been addressed (to save you time), I noticed another person had the same problem, but I don’t have Textile or Eureka plugins installed. I also believe computer is javascript enabled. Can you please, please help me on this? How do I get the smileys to show up when one clicks on it? Please feel free to check my blog’s comment section.

    Thank you so much in advance, Thomas, for your time! :D

  40. Posted December 7, 2007 at 7:23 am | Permalink

    Tom, I would believe that you need to use the button template code and add it to the plugin.

    dee, I do believe LMB^Box Smileys works with pop up comments. You need to know if you want another pop up for the Simleys to open or if you want the Smileys inline with the comment form.

    PinkPuppi, sorry about that, I haven’t been checking / moderating my comments for awhile. I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be reactiving. Try removing all files for both plugins and loading up the Plugin menu. Then upload LMB^Box Smileys and load the Plugin menu. Activate the plugin. If you still don’t see any menus for the plugin, go back to the Plugin menu and deactivate the plugin. Make sure you click Ok / Yes to the two prompts you get. Then reactivate the plugin.

  42. Posted October 25, 2007 at 6:47 am | Permalink

    Hi….I just used your Smiley Plugin. But in a crazy moment I installed the Plugin Custom Smileys. After that I recognized that your Plugin was pushed out of the system and the Custom Smiley Plugin is not what I want to have.
    So I removed de Custom Smiley Plugin an installed your Plugin again. Activated it in the PluginPanel…but I do not have any “button” in my Adminpanel for the settings.

    Do you have any idea what ist going wrong?…thx

    I also installed the WP Grins plugin which works fine; however, I can’t seem to find a plugin that displays the smileys tag bar with the POP UP comments.. will yours enable me to insert the smile option for comments that pop up?

    Hi!
    Tom here again. Hope you had wonderful holidays.

    Please, I can’t manage to get LMBBS to work in the advanced write form in admin!

    It *does* show a button in the basic one, but no button for clickable smileys popup in the advanced one!!

    I’m with WP 2.2.1 and ‘tinymce advanced’, which actually allows to add buttons from different plugins.

    Can you please explain to me how I can manage to have a LMBBS button in there? Please pretty please? :-D

    Tom

    ps By the way, the smileys do show in posts with no problem, as long as the do not touch other text when inserted. This is a minor issue, though.

  47. Posted September 2, 2007 at 2:05 pm | Permalink

    By the way I too use wp 2.2.1 (and a Smilyes button already appears in the basic code form). So I guess the requested mod should come after the fix for 2.2.x versions :wub_tb:

    I really hope you can find the time for both very soon.
    Have a nice day!

    Hi!
    I *love* your plugin!
    Now, for a (little?) request: I love it as much as I love the ‘TinyMCE Advanced’ plugin, which allows for a better bbcode bar in the advanced editor form, to which you can also add buttons from different plugins. Could you please make a LMB^Box Smileys’ button available for it?

    When you do, the author of tmcea will modify his plugin for the button to show, as he already did for the ‘Image Manager’ and ‘Embed video’ plugins.

    That would be absolutely great, we could use your smileys system straight from within the advanced form!

    Pretty please? :clap_tb:

    Here is the link to tmcea plugin, in comment #143 the author explains what he needs: http://www.laptoptips.ca/projects/tinymce-advanced/

  51. Posted August 19, 2007 at 6:32 am | Permalink

    aigou, yes the plugin doesn’t work with 2.2.x yet. I haven’t had time to work on the fix.

  52. Posted August 12, 2007 at 11:59 pm | Permalink

    its doesn’t work with wordpress 2.2.2 :(

  53. Posted August 9, 2007 at 4:07 am | Permalink

    When will the linebreak-bug with WP 2.2 be corrected? I love your plug-in, but comments really look awful …

    Thanks :-)

  54. Posted August 6, 2007 at 6:10 am | Permalink

    SEO Blogger, first of all, I haven’t had any chance to correct the bugs with the new version of WP. WP 2.2.x will cause issues with comments posted and the removal of line breaks. I can see your site is running WP 2.2, so please be aware of this. Now, the plugin can add any smileys to it by creating new Smiley Lists. The Smileys can be displayed in both the Admin Write page or in your Comment Form Area. You can have the Smileys either in a pop-up window or on the page and they are clickable like on my site.

  55. Posted August 5, 2007 at 11:55 pm | Permalink

    Like this plugin (haven’t try it yet, hopefully it’s clickable-type).

    BTW–is there any chance to add the Yahoo! & MSN smileys from this plugin: http://priyadi.net/archives/2005/02/27/wordpress-yahoomsn-messenger-style-smileys-plugin/

  56. Posted July 31, 2007 at 10:18 pm | Permalink

    DJ Allyn, ya … I haven’t had the time to develop the plugin let alone any plugin / code for a while now. But you never know … :hmm1_ee:

  57. Posted July 25, 2007 at 11:29 pm | Permalink

    Well, I had hoped that you had upgraded from version 3.2 which no longer works in WP 2.2+.

    It works, but it breaks the line breaks in comments, making all the paragraphs run together.

    Oh well, I will check back in another month or two.

  58. Posted July 16, 2007 at 11:55 am | Permalink

    Great plugin! I ended up finding this after I’d already installed something similar, but once I got through the learning curve of installing custom smilie sets using LMB, I’m very happy.

    One thing — everyone should avoid putting :/ into your short tags, as this will cause some WordPress errors (1244) — probably because :// is needed for URLS.

  59. Posted July 15, 2007 at 6:21 am | Permalink

    Lucky, have you enabled smileys in WP by checking the box for “Convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display” under the Options -> Writing page? Have you gone through the LMB^Box Smileys options on the Options -> LMB^Box Smileys page?

    I installed everything as dictated in the “Read Me” yet I have no options for smilies on posts, and they simply don’t show up inmy posts when entering the codes. What am I doing wrong?? :wallbash_tb: :glurps_tb:

    DJ Allyn, no LMB^Box Smileys didn’t die, but I have not developed them anymore because of the lack of time. Thanks for the info about them not working in WP 2.2. Since I have not update to WP 2.2 yet, I haven’t been faced with the problem yet. I’m not sure what has changed to cause the line breaks to be removed but hopefully I will be able to take a good look into why shortly. Thanks,
    LordMontie

    Did smilies die?

  63. Posted May 19, 2007 at 10:15 am | Permalink

    This plugin will not work well in WP 2.2.

    It will prevent line breaks and paragraphs in the comments, causing everything to run together in one big paragraph.

    The More Smilies does the same thing.

    Kovis, I’m not sure what you mean by pressing “Enter” doesn’t work. Are you talking about when you add a Smiley Tag to a post or comment, it you hit enter right after the Smiley Tag to create a new line, the Smiley isn’t picked up?

    Dear LordMontie:

    Mario, are you trying to use the Smileys for the Admin Write page or on comments? Do you have JavaScript enabled on your browsers? What error are you getting when you click on a Smiley?

    Ashley, I see you are using WP 2.1.3. I have not tested LMB^Box Smileys on this version yet. That having been said, I do not see a reason why it wouldn’t work. The error code and line after looking at your blog is having a problem with the “get_settings()” call on line 1324. Also this seems to be a problem with calling “lmbbox_smileys_display()” on line of 1316. Please try deactivating the plugin and reactivating it. Please also make sure that the “Convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display” option is check on the Options->Writing page.

    Hey there! I was using this plugin on a former website (http://ashgrace.serverspeople.net) and it worked perfectly. I have since moved all these files to a new host under my new domain name ashgrace.net. Since the move, I haven’t been able to get this plugin to work again. I’ve tried reinstalling LMB^Box Smileys, and LMB^Box Comment Quicktags and I always get the same error back when I look at my comment page:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/www/ashgrace.net/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys/lmbbox-smileys.php on line 1316

    In my admin pages, I do not get a menu for the smiley lists or options either? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’d love to get this working again!

    Tuby, I need to know some more info. Are you using any custom Smiley Lists? Did you upgrade from a previous version? It looks like your lists may not be saved correctly in the DB. Please try activating the plugin and then deactivating it. Click “Ok” on both prompts if you would like to remove your Options. This will clear out the DB of any LMB^Box Smiley options. Then activate the plugin and it should load without any problems. Let me know how everything goes.

    Warning: preg_replace(): Unknown modifier ‘(‘ in /www/htdocs/XXXXXXXX/blog/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys/lmbbox-smileys.php

    I compared my smileys-list-config.php with one of yours. It´s nearly the same (just a bit more smilies). I noticed, that i can´t change the option “Admin Write Pages Default Smileys List”. If i select my own smiley set the selection wouldnt be saved. Hope you can help me…

    Hi Montie,

    For the past 10 days, I was not able to check my emails, as I’m currently occupied with my blog.

    Today, I’v checked my site email, and found Luv’s email [who had same problem, as of mine in Smileys plugin]. Though I’v replied the solution.

    I’m writing the same to you, incase if anyone ask you can help them out too.

    The error, that I had writen about, is basically not a plugin error, as it’s quite clear from the error message and is related to smileys path.

    I had tried all ways, that disabling the plugin from the option’s and removing the entry’s, I had also hard coded path in the plugin file, but nothing helped.

    I had then deleted all the smileys entire from options table to solve my problem. Here is what I did in details:

    General Note for others: 1. Wp-option tables is the main table, which stores all your WordPress confing details, so be carefull while editing this. As this may corrupt your entire WordPress installation.
    2. Backup of your DB first, before proceeding, incase of any error, you’ll not lose anything.

    Procedure:

    1. Login to phpMyAdmin and Select your WordPress DB.
    2. Once selected, you’ll see list of Tables.
    3. Scroll down and select wp-option, by clicking the radio button on the extreme left and then click the browse button from under the Action header.
    4. Depend upon the no. of plugins you’ll have to scroll a lot.
    5. while scrolling down the page look for Smiley’s entries, and select those entires by clicking radion button, located at extreme left.

    After you have completed a page, just check your selected entry’s, and make sure, that you have selected only Smileys entry’s, once you are sure, click Delete [ X ] located at the bottom of the page.

    You’ll then get a confirmation page, just check again, if all entry’s are correct, if yest then give your confirmation for the deletion, else deny and repeat from step 3 again.

    6. After deleting first page of entry’s, select next page from the drop down menu, locate at the bottom right corner and repeat from step 3.

    I hope this will help us in providing support to the fantastic Smileys plugin.

    Take care!

    Regards,
    DG…

    First and foremost;

    A Very Happay & presperous New Year to you and your family.

    N.P. right after writting to you, I was able to solve above mentioned problem. Sorry! I couldn’t update you this.

    Luvlee / DG, sorry it took me a few days to respond. First off I looked at the code where both of you are getting your warnings and it doesn’t make any sense why you would be getting warnings. Have either of you setup any custom Smileys List(s) or Short Smileys Tags for the current Smileys Lists?

    If not, please take these actions to see if it fixes the issues. These steps will have you remove all settings for the plugin so you will have to reset them. If you want to, you can make notes of what you set if you want before you begin.

    1. Open the Plugins tab in WP Admin
    2. Click Deactivate on LMB^Box Smileys plugin
    3. Click Ok on both of the confirm boxes that pop up
    4. You should now be back at the Plugins page with a header saying that LMB^Box Smileys was deactivated
    5. Click on the Plugins tab again to reload the page freshly
    6. Click Activate on LMB^Box Smileys plugin

    Before you go and reset any of your settings, please open up your blog and test where you saw your warning problem to see if it’s still there. Hope this helps and please give me an update.

  84. Posted December 30, 2006 at 8:10 am | Permalink

    Hi Montie,

    I’v been using your fantastic plugins LMB^Box Comments Quicktags and Smileys without any problems. Recently, I’v shifted my blog to a new host and since then the plugins started crashing with under quoted errors:

    Can you please advice me the cause of this error, as I simply don’t want to get part of the plugin.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    Gurdit, could you please email me (lordmontie AT gmail DOT com) your Smileys List config file so that I can go through it to make sure that there are no errors in it. The error that you are getting is running on the line where the Smiley Tag is being searched by preg_replace(). Most likely, your Short Smiley Tags are causing problems and not being quoted like they are suppose to be.

  87. Posted December 11, 2006 at 1:08 pm | Permalink

    PS: Even though I’ve managed to select a smiley for “Comment Form Default Smileys List”, it’s still giving me error:

    Thomas,
    Hi… I just seem to keep running into problems… this time I think I’ve tried most of what I could (I’ll admit to being well… not so good with coding)
    I just added a Smiley List (I made the config file myself and synced it). It seems to work, more or less, but it gives an error everywhere on my blog – http://www.gurdit.com/blog/
    Under AdminCP>>Options>>LMB^Box Smileys, I’ve recognized the problem… for “Admin Write Pages Default Smileys List”, it’s not selecting anything except “None”, even though I’ve set all 4 smiley lists to “Display With Title”.
    I’ve replaced the lmbbox-smileys.php (put the original file on top of my file), and still nothing.
    This is such a great plugin, I really want it to work :help_tb:… Let me know if you need an Admin account to have a look at the code or something…

  89. Posted December 10, 2006 at 10:15 pm | Permalink

    Gurdit, I’m glad to hear that you found your issue. It truly isn’t that hard to create a new Smileys List, it just takes some planning and setting up. You need to get all of the image files together and then come up with Tags and Short Tags (optional) for each Smiley. Yes, it does talk some work to get a List completely setup, but it’s easier then directly modifing the code of either WordPress or the Plugin. Enjoy!

  90. Posted December 10, 2006 at 12:00 pm | Permalink

    THomas, it’s me again…
    I figured out the problem… there was something wrong with FileZilla, I guess something timed out and 1 file didn’t upload properly. Everything’s working now. GREAT PLUGIN! I just wish there was an easier way of creating Smiley lists, though.

  91. Posted December 10, 2006 at 8:38 am | Permalink

    Hi,
    I hope you’re still providing support for your plugin here. I’m very happy with the QUicktags plugin, and I’ve also installed the the smileys to go with it. Everything appears to be installed properly and the smiley button appears in both the admin page as well as the comment form. The problem is that the smileys don’t seem to load in the popup.
    I have a few other plugins installed, but nothing that should come in the way of the smileys and my PHP is ver 4.4.4. Any clue what the problem could be?

  92. Posted November 20, 2006 at 5:05 am | Permalink

    great Plugin, the smilies aren’t clickable in Internet Explorer and Opera 8, they do fine in Firefox.

  93. Posted November 19, 2006 at 9:31 am | Permalink

    Robert, you need to uncheck the “Use the visual rich editor when writing” option from your profile by going to the Users menu. This should remove the rich editor and should show the quicktags bar where the Smileys button will add onto.

  94. Posted November 19, 2006 at 6:43 am | Permalink

    I unchecked the “use visual rich editor by default” option off, but it was always there, so maybe you have to turn it off some other way that I have missed?

  95. Posted November 17, 2006 at 7:02 am | Permalink

    Robert, LMB^Box Smileys are not completely compatiable with WP 2.0 yet. The only way to see the Smileys button is if you have the visual rich editor turned off. I’m not sure if you have tried this or not, but I hope this is the problem.

  96. Posted November 17, 2006 at 1:52 am | Permalink

    I’m having a problem adding the smileys to the Admin Write Pages. The same behavior occurs with the default to visually rich editor option enabled or disabled. The Admin Write Pages Default Smileys List option is selectable, but when I save the options and the page reloads, no options for that item are selected.

    It works just fine under comments though — any ideas? I am using the default theme with slight modifications.

    How did you do the DB Backup? I will spit out a script to restore the Smileys options from a DB Backup. Mainly I need to know if you just simply have an SQL file that has all the data. Normally this will be the case. Just let me know and I can complete the script. :)

  101. Posted September 29, 2006 at 7:24 am | Permalink

    yep… i did all the work thru the admin page, without a php file in every smily directory. :( I’ll do that next time tho. Actually I did a db backup (i also went to wp 2.0.4) but since i am very unexperienced at this i don’t think i know how to actually revert anything from that DB! :(

  102. Posted September 29, 2006 at 6:07 am | Permalink

    I’m sorry to say that they are gone :sick_ee: … they way they are removed, removes all settings in the options table. I suggest that you check for a DB backup from either yourself or from your web hosting provider. Just thinking! Did you make a backup of your DB before you upgraded?

    I’m assuming that you created your Smileys List via the management admin page and not through the autoloading by creating a ‘smileys-list-config.php’ file in the Smiley Image’s folder … I would strongly suggest that you move your Smileys List into a package with a ‘smileys-list-config.php’ file for autoloading.

    I’ve installed the smiley plugin, and after a few attempts, I was finally able to get them working. However, once I install my own custom smilies, and try to disable the other smiley files in the admin, I get this error when opening up my pop up smiley page:

    The code on line 539 is:

  108. Posted July 24, 2006 at 7:10 pm | Permalink

    Colleen, that is exactly where the problem is. I would have suggested that you modify the code yourself, but if you simply remove the extra ‘elseif/else’ statements which contain the ‘window.opener’ calls, it will fix the current problem and it will add another problem. You will not be able to use the popup version unless you add the code back in.

    If you feel adventurous and you know a little bit about PHP coding, you can fix the problem yourself by just adding a check for the ‘if displayed directly’ variable. But don’t worry about this, I’m hopping to release my LONG OVER DUE update of the plugin within the week. Good job on finding the problem!

    I have just upgraded to wordpress 2. I tried to deactivate my smiles plugin befre i started, but it said i had to ‘enable sending referrers’ of which i did. But it still didnt alow me to deactivate. i ended up removing the smiles from my server, upgrading to wordpress2 and and uploading them again and reactivating them. However, I cant see any smiles in the ‘write post’ box. Actually in my plugins section the ‘comment box’ has an exclamation mark on it and it says checking for updates. What shall i do? Im really sad as i cannot smile………

    Can you help?

    Now today I found out that the smilies aren’t clickable in Internet Explorer and Opera 8, they do fine in Firefox. In IE I get an error message like window.opener.document is 0 or not an object.
    I don’t use them as popups but have them displayed underneath the textarea, you can have a look at it here. This blog is running under WP 2.0, but it is the same problem with another one that runs under 1.5. Smilies version is 3.2.
    Do you have any idea how to make them clickable in IE?

    Thank you so much – you are totally right they don’t play well together! I just installed them all yesterday and did not test it yet. Thank you. And thank you so much for the quick response on the code. I really appreciate it! :P

    Tiffini, yea you can by editing some of the plugin’s code but there is already a plugin called More Smileys! I just took a quick look at your site and I see that your using the Smiley JS Buttons plugin to put the smileys under the comment form. My guess is that you will have issues with using BOTH plugins at the same time! I made a comment on your latest post to test this possibility.

    Yea, if you look at that comment you will see that all the Smiley JS Buttons plugin’s Smileys didn’t work and all of the LMB^Box Smileys did! This is because LMB^Box Smileys kills all the original smileys that come with WordPress and use its own lists and calls to display the Smileys!

    If you open up the ‘lmbbox-smileys.php’ file in the ‘lmbbox-smileys’ folder and go to line 1327-1335 (near the bottom), you will see in the code where I remove the WordPress filters to do the smileys and add my own filters! If you would still like to change the button’s lable go to line 1252-1287 (above where you were). You will see three functions (lmbbox_insert_smileys, lmbbox_insert_smileys_comments, lmbbox_insert_smileys_comments_edit). This functions add the Javascript which adds the button … to change the comments button’s lable, edit the lmbbox_insert_smileys_comments function! Look for this value="Smileys" part of code in the main line. Then just change the lable to value="More Smileys" and you will have your new lable.

    I hope this helps and everything works out … thanks for your support! :rasberry_ee:

    Hello! I love this plugin I am sure this is the most basic question. . .however. I would like to change the button to say “more smileys”. tartx
    I must just be missing it – of course changing all the other quicktags is very simple but I just can not find the code for this. If you get a chance and if not I am sure I will figure it out someday. . .Thank you! You ROCK!

    Carmen, yea I’m sorry. I go by LordMontie and what you see is a Leet version of it that I use too.

    I’m glad everything is working now with Textile off. If you want, you can try turning EUREKA back on and see what happens because I only know first hand that Textile messes things up … but it’s most likely best to keep it all off. Thanks for your nice comments and your support! :embarrassed_ee: I’m hoping to have the next release of Smileys out in another week after I finish what I’m doing with Comment Editor (was Comment Quicktags). Donations can be made via Paypal or another way if you want to, just email me or post a comment …

    One last thing, for some reason the one Short Smileys Tag that goes with this :arrow_wp: Smiley (You have it as ‘=>’) doesn’t work for some reason. The easiest thing to do is just to change it or remove it.

    Sorry about the name, Oro was all I could decipher from this: “Comment by |_0ro|/\/ | 01/26/06 at 12:22 pm”

    I shut off Textile and EUREKA! :clap_tb: Now everything works! It would be good to put info like that in the readme, I can’t remember seeing it there. Along with the Comments Quicktags plugin this is the first one that has really worked! Hope the donation system works. Many, many, thanks!

  124. Posted January 26, 2006 at 12:22 pm | Permalink

    Carmen, who is Oro? Anyways … What other plugins do you have running? Are you using any text formating plugins like Textile? Textile is known to case output problems like this because it transforms some of what LMB^Box Smileys outputs into somthing else. This maybe your problem here! Try deactivating those plugins and see what happens to your comments/posts.

    On another note, I’m in to process of updating LMB^Box Comment Quicktags to a new pluing all together! Read my new posts that I’ve made. I hope things start working out better …

    |_0ro|/\/\0n+!3

    [EDIT]
    PS: Make sure that you have the latest version of LMB^Box Comment Quicktags!

  125. Posted January 26, 2006 at 11:37 am | Permalink

    Hi Oro,

    Just looked at Javascript, it is active, at least the computer has it marked that way. I don’t have problems using emoticons on other’s forums.
    In the past my firewall was set too high so that I didn’t see them move, but that didn’t prevent me from using them.

    Got the LMB Comments Quicktags plugin. Got the popup window working. Now I can click on the smileys and the code appears in the comment window, but when I post I see only code, and not even the one that was supposed to appear.

    In Options the box is checked: “Convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display.” I have tried using those too for the simplest smileys, but they didn’t convert to graphics.

    Well, at least I got a step further, and the Comments Quicktags plugin was THE FIRST one that really worked on install. I have a few ideas for expanding it. Kudos!

    Thanks, :) :)

    Carmen

  126. Posted January 26, 2006 at 10:15 am | Permalink

    Hi Oro,

    I have already taken a look at the Javascript activation less than a week ago, but will look at it again, I thought I activated it.

    Now that I put in new smilies it really does look messy, some are too big anyway. I tried the code given for the button if one doesn’t have the Comment Quicktags plugin, but it didn’t work. I’m afraid of getting another plugin, none that I have tried have worked from the very beginning without some problem showing up. May get the plugin anyway.

    You might have tried the page as I was messing around with a categories plugin and with the permalinks and .htaccess. Was supposed to turn them off for the other plugin to work, can’t even do that. I set everything back to default and permalinks should be working again. I have to take a closer look at what it does anyway.

    A short note: Tried to turn the plugin off, and it is not as easy as the readme said. There were some things I was supposed to change to get it to work, I couldn’t change them. Just selecting yes or no didn’t do the trick. What would happen if I go into FTP and just eliminate the plugin? I’m not thinking about doing it now, I think I can get it to work somehow, but the next WP upgrade may mess things up when it comes, and it will be necessary to turn off all plugins for it.

    Will get to the Javascript now. Thanks! :)

  127. Posted January 25, 2006 at 3:59 pm | Permalink

    Can, … Didn’t I just comment back to you :ponder_tb: :P …

    OK, it’s Smileys time … So let’s start with the basics …
    First have the latest version (3.2), then extract the ‘lmbbox-smileys-3.2′ folder from the archive. Open up that folder and you will see the main ‘lmbbox-smileys’ plugin folder and the readme.txt and upgrate.txt files. All we are conserned about is the main folder ‘lmbbox-smileys’ so go ahead and copy this folder into your local web directory where your WordPress plugins folder is (if you don’t have a local copy of your web directory just skip this).

    Now you should have in you WordPress plugins folder (/wp-content/plugins/*) the ‘lmbbox-smileys’ folder (/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys/*). Open up the ‘lmbbox-smileys’ folder and you’ll see 2 php files (main plugin and popup page files) and ‘smileys’ folder. Open up the ‘smileys’ folder to see where all the Smileys Lists are stored! If you do not want a Smileys List, just delete the folder and everything under it. To create a Smileys List, the easiest way to get a working base is to copy the ‘wp’ folder and rename it to anything (but only 4 chars.). Now open up your new Smileys List folder and remove all the image files and leave the one php file called ‘smileys-list-config.php’ … this will be your starting point!

    You now only need to copy/move your new Smileys Images into this Smileys List folder and edit the ‘smileys-list-config.php’ file to your liking. Make sure that your Smileys List Abbr is the same thing as your Smileys List folder’s name! Edit your title, abbr, display order (0 = first, 1 = second, 2 = third … but remember, if two or more Smileys Lists have the same display order, they will be displayed by there abbr’s alphabetically), smileys tags to smiles images, and if you want smileys short tags to smileys images.

    Well that was L O N G! I hope this helps out … :rasberry_ee:

  128. Posted January 25, 2006 at 1:16 pm | Permalink

    I must be really missing something because I don’t know where to get the smiley-list-config.php. I’m trying to create my own Smileys List. Since I can’t find the smiley-list-config.php, I’m getting this on top of my comment area:

    Error: Smiley Page called incorrectly!

    I don’t want to use the 3 smileys lists (wp, ee, tb). How do I disable them? Do I still need to upload them when I don’t have any plans of using them? What do I need to do with the 2 PHP files (lmbbox-smileys-popup.php, lmbbox-smileys.php) enclosed in the LMB Box Smileys directory? What changes do I need to do in order for this plugin to work?

    Lastly, what number should I put here: Use #’s to set Order of Display.

    Thank you.

  129. Posted January 25, 2006 at 11:27 am | Permalink

    Carmen,
    Where to start … Lets start with your original problem. After looking at your site and making it to a comments page, if I click on a Smiley that is in the sidebar it loads the Smileys Tag into the Comment Textarea like it’s suppose to. My guess is that your browser doesn’t have Javascript enabled, which LMB^Box Smileys needs!

    Now with some suggestions:
    1) Your idea of putting the Smileys in the Sidebar is a nice idea but is still very dirty and complicated at its bases! I would suggest to either have a clickable link/button that opens a popup window (like default) or add them directly to your Comment Area. This way when and only someone opens the comments area up (loads a single post / clicks on comment popup link) the Smileys will be present.

    2) Your sites permalinks are misconfigured! I had to manually add ‘?p=1′ after your blogs address in order to get a single post. You may want to take a look at your Options->Permalinks settings. Mine for example is ‘/archives/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/’.

    I hope this helps and fixes everything! Thanks for your support and I hope you enjoy the plugin! :rasberry_ee:

  131. Posted January 25, 2006 at 8:52 am | Permalink

    I don’t get an error message or anything. The emoticons are there where I want them, happily doing their thing. At least I am working on a solution that will put them in the sidebar but hide them on all pages except the comments page or offer a hide/show button on all pages. Also they should move down the page if there are lots of comments, parallel with the comment box. That would be badass if I can get it to work, just am not keen on code.

    Anyway, I get no error message, but no matter how I click or try to copy and paste, no little dudes appear in the comments window, and when I post a comment there is no emoticon. It seems like the “clickable” function isn’t working. Thanks for answering so quickly, just saw the message, have been wrestling with emoticons all day. :)

    Aidan and WPNewbie, sorry I didn’t respond to you sooner … been a little busy. I am currently working on both LMB^Box Comment Quicktags and LMB^Box Smileys and am planning to release updated versions of both plugins soon (hopefully within a week)! Thanks for all your support! :rasberry_ee:

  133. Posted January 23, 2006 at 9:44 am | Permalink

    Carmen, What error do you get and when do you get it? Also it would be helpful if you suppied your blog’s url so that I can see what is going on.

    Javascript is not something that is with any one script / system / problem. Javascript is a programing language that is process by the web browser that you’re using (Firefox, Internet Explorer).

    Get back to me and we’ll work the problem out … ;)

  134. Posted January 23, 2006 at 8:51 am | Permalink

    Just uploaded and installed plugin Version 3.2 as in readme, but get an error when I try to use the emoticons. Added the code to the comments page, and can see the emoticons, but clicking on them or copy and paste don’t work either. I read and re-read the readme page, but am getting nowhere. Was there a piece of code missing, maybe the java script? Is java script automatically compatible with WordPress blogs? In options the text to emoticon box is checked, if it isn’t you can’t see the emoticons, I tried that one. Any tips?

  135. Posted January 20, 2006 at 12:36 pm | Permalink

    I have been having problems with this plug-in. The admin control page for this plug-in interfeers with other plug-in control pages that I have running on my site. (eg. Spam Karma 2) … It has always sort of done this, though it does’nt stop the plugin or the other interfearing plug in from working, so to get around this I just deactivate the Smilies plugin, and alter what I need.. though it gets sort of annoying to have to do.

    I love this plug-in, it is one of my top 5. :) I hope to see it released for Wp2.0.

  136. Posted January 6, 2006 at 4:49 pm | Permalink

    Thank you for all your work! I am another one who would like to use LMB^Box Smileys with WP2 and WYSIWYG. 8) Confirmed, with Firefox 1.5 there is no Smiley-Button. With Opera 8.51 there is but no WYSIWYG .. *grr* ;)

  137. Posted January 5, 2006 at 5:32 pm | Permalink

    Yea Eve, I’ve had some responces that LMB^Box Comment Quicktags and LMB^Box Smileys are not completely working correctly in WP2. For example, if you use the WYSIWYG editor for posting the Smileys Quicktag Button won’t show! There are a few things that I need to do to make sure that everything work smoothly. I’m glad that your not having any problems! :lol_wp:

  138. Posted January 5, 2006 at 4:43 pm | Permalink

    make sure your using NOT using WP2 yet!

    Well oops! I am hosted at Dreamhost, and I just installed the version they had available on their server, and I’m sure it is version 2 (the admin interface has 2.0 in the footer), so it looks like you don’t have much work to do. Both plugins work just fine!

Just a note for you, make sure your using NOT using WP2 yet! I haven’t had time up update the plugins to work with WP2 but I AM going to … :D Thanks! :rasberry_ee: <- That’s my favorate one!

    I have been using WordPress for oh, a whole 2 days now and thought I would drop you a note to thank you for both this and the Comment Quicktags plugins.

    For a WP virgin, like myself, apart from them doing exactly as I was hoping that they would do, your instructions were great, and they were easy-peasy to install.

    So thanks!

    :eek_wp:

    (sorry, I am totally in love with that emoticon, and will use it whenever possible. Just imagine that it is smiling broadly)

    Claus, no I haven’t had the time to update LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin since the WP2 release. I will be updating it to work with WP2 BUT it would only work if you disable the WYSIWYG editor. I’m sorry about not staying on top of this but I currently have alot of other work in front of me and everything else is taking second seat. Thanks for your support! :)
    PS. Please comment on the right page …

    Peter, the current release of LMB^Box Smileys has not been checked for compatiblity in WP2! I’m sorry about not staying on top of this, but like I stated above I’m currently swamped in other work right now. I will be updating LMB^Box Smileys to work with WP2 both in the WYSIWYG editor and plain text editor modes. Thanks for your support! :D

    Hello Thomas,
    your plugin is pretty cool! But since WordPress version 2.0 the Quicktag Button in the Admin Write Panel is gone. I’ve tried to re-setup the plugin but nothing works. Sadly i could not modify the code by myself. I Hope you can fix that.

    Cpio, I’ve found where the problem is. I didn’t update my documentation correctly in the latest version. The link that you need to use to add to your comments.php theme file for a Smileys button/link is just like above and like the documentation, BUT at the end of the link instead of having ‘?action=comment’ it need to be ‘?lmbbox_smileys=comment’. I must of forgotten to update the documentation after I made this change to the plugin’s code. I’m sorry about this problem.

    Link to your site’s Smileys Popup Page: http://www.tristania-angina.com/blog/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys/lmbbox-smileys-popup.php?lmbbox_smileys=comment

    About the LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin, from what I see either you removed or forgot to add the line:

    <?php if (function_exists('lmbbox_comment_quicktags_display')) { lmbbox_comment_quicktags_display(); } ?>

    You need to have this line in your comments.php theme file like the readme.txt instructs. If you have tried this before and still had the problems that you stated, please enable the plugin and add the line so that it’s installed correctly and let me know so that I can find out what is going on. Hope this helps!

    and even worst with the quicktaqs plugins my blog won’t open when commenting

  150. Posted November 29, 2005 at 9:48 am | Permalink

    Cpio, the problem is that the link to the Smileys Popup Page is not complete. At the end of the link should be ‘?action=comment’ so the complete could would be this to put the link in your comments.php file:

    <?php echo ‘<a href=”‘ . get_settings(‘siteurl’) . ‘/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys/lmbbox-smileys-popup.php?action=comment” target=”_blank” onClick=”window.open(\” . get_settings(‘siteurl’) . ‘/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys/lmbbox-smileys-popup.php?action=comment\’, \’smileys\’, \’width=400,height=450,status=yes,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes\’); return false;”>Smileys</a>’; ?>

    This should all be on a single line in your comments.php file and it will add a link to the Smileys Popup Page. Also, to be able to figure out what is wrong if this is correct, please let me know what is your site’s url. Hope this helps … :)

    Ok Melanie, after doing a quick google search for netring and viewing there site, I can tell you that the hosting that you have is Windows Based hosting and not Unix/Linux Based. This is why your able to edit/modify your themes/plugins files via WordPress’s editor. Everything that I see is all ok about your hosting and setup, no big holes are anything like that.

    Now for your blog … first thing is that if you view a post (just a post and comment form by clicking on the post’s title) you will see that the page is not displaying correctly. I believe that you wanted the background color to be that of the main pages background color. I’m not sure what is happing, but my guess is there is some out of place.

    Next the LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin isn’t working correctly … you can see that it’s being called but it’s not displaying completely. After looking at the page’s source, I’m not sure what’s happening. Please try going to your “Plugins” page and deactivating LMB^Box Comment Quicktags plugin, click “Ok/Yes” to remove all storged options. Then reactivate the plugin and see if it works. Make sure that the code that you added to your comments.php theme file is this:

    <?php if (function_exists('lmbbox_comment_quicktags_display')) { lmbbox_comment_quicktags_display(); } ?>

    Also please make sure that you’ve added the styles to your styles.css theme file as instructed in the readme.txt file (Step 4). I hope this helps and solves all the problems.

  153. Posted November 12, 2005 at 1:22 pm | Permalink

    Hi,

    ok, i have added the comment text to the coment.php file and made sure that both say coment so hopefully this is ok now :shuteye_ee: tell me if not….! This is all very new to me and its really exciting to learn how to do it.

    I have a pc and i use Internet explorer and my hosting company is called netring, they are a local company to me, i was originaly with easyspace but wasnt happy at all. These guys are great and reliable.

    I havent actually any idea what they use, and as i havent heard of the cpanel i dont think i have one…blimy i must be sounding like a dunce here! But i am able to email and ask.

    I know how to set my file permissions and i have checked and the folders are 755 and the files are 644 so thats one step closer. I use bulletproof to upload all my files if that helps.

    I realise what you are saying and i hope i can resolve this as im not sure ifd like anyone coming in and changing things! Unless it was my spelling of course… :laugh_tb:

  154. Posted November 12, 2005 at 12:28 pm | Permalink

    Melanie, Just looked at your site and I see that you did upgrade to the latest version of LMB^Box Comment Quicktags but you forgot to edit your comments.php theme file like the readme.txt file instructs you to! The new version of the plugin that you just installed has different code to add to your comments.php theme file!

    What I ment by “locking down the folders” … if your webhosting is on a unix/linux based server, you would have to make sure that all your folders have a permissions of 755 and all files (idealy) 644, but if your webhosting is on a windows based server, then there really isn’t much you can do. If you have unix/linux hosting and you have Cpanel to control your hosting setup, use the “File Manager” to make all these settings.

    Where I’m coming from …
    The WordPress features to edit files throught your Admin Panel require you to (if using unix/linux hosting server) open up certain folders/files (themes folder / plugins folder / .htaccess file) so that WordPress can access/modify them. This isn’t very safe as the permission needed to allow this, would allow ANYONE to create/modify/delete these folders/files!

    PS: From a brief look/try, it looks like you don’t have Cpanel and you may not have a unix/linux hosting server! :( Who is your hosting provider?

  155. Posted November 12, 2005 at 11:23 am | Permalink

    THANK YOU!!!! It works now, you are brilliant!

    So finaly you mention about ‘locking down the folders’, im probably being a bit dumb here, how do i go about this?

    Ok Flumpet, I’ve look at your blog and here’s what I’ve found:

    First of all, I can see that your using my “WP Comment Quicktags Plus” plugin … this is the old version! The new plugin is named “LMB^Box Comment Quicktags.” Get that one and you should be great.

    Second, from what I gather after trying to access a couple of plugin folders and files that you didn’t COMPLETELY install the plugin! If you read the readme.txt file with the installation instructions, it will tell you to upload the “lmbbox-smileys” FOLDER to your plugins folder. So, you should have this folder structure for your plugins:

    [root]
    |__> [wp-content]
    |______> [plugins]
    |_________> [lmbbox-smileys]
    |____________> [LMB^Box Smileys Files]

    I hope this has helped … Also for another note, I find it much easier and more safe if you modify your files locally on your computer BEFORE you upload them … meaning, don’t use the WordPress feature to edit your plugins/theme files via a web-browser, instead lock down all folders so that no one can edit them unless logged in via ftp or other access method. If you have any other problems, please fell free to contact me! :wink_ee: :rasberry_ee:

    WOW! Thanks Pal! I never even thought about this to be a problem! Don’t worry about when you reply, I know I need to update this site’s design and plugins eg. “Subscribe To Comments.” Right now I’m really getting back into my LMB^Box FilePress plugin and I have noticed some other things in both LMB^Box Comment Quicktags and LMB^Box Smileys that need to be taken care of as well as all the bugs you have brought up. So I will be trying to find some time to update everything and fix the bugs. Thanks for your support! :wink_ee: :rasberry_ee:

    Hello, Montie, Sorry for replying so late. To solve the conflict between Smileys and textile, i bended to disable Textile for the lovely Smileys. another problem, well, is: The same Smileys cannot be displayed if you put the same emoticon just after the former one, as:
    (SmileA) (SmileA)
    :question_wp: :question_wp: :sad_tb: :sad_tb:
    Works OK?

    Pal, I was unaware of any problems with other plugins! Thanks for the info, I’ll figure out what is happening and make a fix. Also, it looks like you have LMB^Box Smileys running on your site, but do you have Textile running too?

    My guess as to what is happing, after a quick look at the Textile plugin, is that because of Textile’s formating codes the Smileys Tags are getting messed up. If I read correctly, the ‘==code==’ is Textile’s way of not processing preformated text. So an idea would be to try to put ‘== :)==’ where ‘ :)’ (with the space) is the Smileys Tag. But I’m not sure if this will work yet, so I’ll update when I’ve explored it more.

    Thanks Montie, errr, for your great works.
    There seems to be some conflicts between the LMB^Box Smileys and another WP plugin, Textile. In fact, with the activity of Textile in background, there comes to the reslust that, all the emoticons cannot be displayed successfully, but showing a failure symbol ending with ‘alt=:” />’, as Gunslinger mentioned before.
    i’m not sure if there’s still some conficts between the lastest version of Textile and Smileys, coz i got this trouble with Textile 1.0 and the newest Smileys. If someone else get the same problem as what i described, try to make your Textile or some other plugins deactive, and that might help you out.

    Best regards,
    Pal

    Kike, thanks for the support! Man that’s the first I’ve ever hear of anyone using a symlink for their plugin folder 8O! Normally users just use the default plugin folder … anyway, the answer … the lmbbox-smileys-popup.php file is designed to load the Smileys Popup Page and in order to load the page and access WordPress’s info, you need to include wp-config.php. Before I found that search code for the wp-config.php file, I just manually added something like include(../../../../wp-config.php) and that wouldn’t work for you any better!
    :ponder_tb:
    So what is there to do? Just simply do exactly what you did! Comment out lines 14-22 using ‘/*’ and ‘*/’ before and after those lines. Then add after the line ‘*/’ you added, this: require_once('Your_WP_Path_To_wp-config.php'); and that should allow the plugin to work! I’m sorry for any problems that you have had with the plugin. :rasberry_ee:

    PS: Why do you use a symlink for your plugins folder? Just Wondering … ;)

  163. Posted September 9, 2005 at 3:49 pm | Permalink

    Great plugin. :thumbup_tb:
    I’ve had one little problem because I’m a GNU/linux user a my plugins page is not under wordpress directly, it uses a symlink, so when I opened the smilies popup, it didn’t work and the “couldn’t find wp-config.php” error because of the recursive search. I think that ABSPATH variable is the route you need, isn’t it?
    So I’ve had to edit “lmbbox-smileys-popup.php” and put my wp-config.php manually.

  164. Posted September 1, 2005 at 8:23 pm | Permalink

    Baxx, right now I’m not too sure what is going on. I’ll get back to you with an answer soon! For right now, did the plugin work correctly WITHOUT you changing any of the Smileys Lists? Also on another note, it would be better for you to create a completely new Smileys List instead of just overwriting the default Smileys Lists.

    What you need to do is just copy the wp folder and rename it to another short abbr. like the readme.txt file instructs. Then you remove all the old Smiley Images and add your own. Then edit the smileys-list-config.php file with all your new settings.

    This way to update the plugin, all you would need to do is make a copy of YOUR Smileys List(s) folder and replace the lmbbox-smileys plugin folder with the new version. Then just move your Smileys List(s) back into the smileys folder.

    Yea, I don’t think that I documented anything about having to have ‘Enable Smileys’ in the Options -> Writting page. I will update that here shortly! I’ll get back to you about your problem soon! And thanks for your support and comments!

  165. Posted September 1, 2005 at 12:22 pm | Permalink

    Heh, got another problem here.

    I tried to add in my old smilies and so I replaced the wp folder of smilies with my own and changed all the directs in the “$smileys_list_info_data['smileys'] = array” part of the smilies-list-config.php file.

    But when I click the smilies button the window pops up to reveal:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_settings() in /var/www/html/ant/baxxsdrinkingden/wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys.php on line 1310

    Any ideas?

  166. Posted September 1, 2005 at 12:11 pm | Permalink

    Heh, you responded much faster than payed companies. Thanks, it worked a treat. I may have overlooked it somewhere, but you may want to add that you need to turn on smilies in your FAQ in the readme.

    Thanks again, great work on the plugin Montie.

  167. Posted September 1, 2005 at 11:32 am | Permalink

    I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to respond sooner, but for some reason my ISP’s DNS isn’t working right and I couldn’t get to my OWN site! The problem is that you don’t have Smiley enabled! Go to Options -> Writting and make sure that “Convert emoticons like ‘:-)’ and ‘:-P’ to graphics on display” is checked! This should now enable the smileys and the plugin to work. Hope this helps …

  168. Posted September 1, 2005 at 10:04 am | Permalink

    Hello, me again. Just to add some extra detail, yes I have activated it in the plugins page. Through some minor detective work I figured the Smilies Options page would have the following url:

    [...]wp-admin/options-general.php?page=lmbbox-smileys.php

    But once I put that in, I get the following error message:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class lmbbox_smileys_class in [...]wp-content/plugins/lmbbox-smileys.php on line 225

    Any help appreciated Montie.

  169. Posted September 1, 2005 at 7:05 am | Permalink

    Hi Montie. This is probably a silly question but where is the Smiley Options page? I checked the usual Options tab in the admin section (where your comments quicktag tab is) but there is no Smilies tab.

  170. Posted August 29, 2005 at 12:00 pm | Permalink

    Steve, I’ve just found the goldmined PHP function that I needed … preg_quote()! Instead of using esacpeshellcmd(), which didn’t really work, using preg_quote() works perfectly! I’ve posted the updated version of LMB^Box Smileys above. Thanks for you suggestion and help!

  171. Posted August 27, 2005 at 9:42 am | Permalink

    Ok Steve, I’ve modifed the Smileys code with a preg_replace() and regex. I’m using this:

    '/(^|\s|\W)' . escapeshellcmd($smiley) . '(\s|\W|$)/'

    It works just fine for all normal Smileys Tags (:smile:) but doesn’t work for Short Smileys Tags (:P) completely! The problem is with the ‘)’ that may be in the Short Smileys Tag. The escapeshellcmd() doesn’t escape it or it does and just replaces it with a space or nothing, then the matching doesn’t work right. Any help will be great!

    [EDIT]
    I’ve thought about the regex and changed it a little … I didn’t want it to match any Smileys Tag unless there was a space before it or it’s at the beginning of a new line.

    '/(^|\s)' . escapeshellcmd($smiley) . '(\s|\W|$)/'

    But there is still the problem with the Short Smileys Tags …

  172. Posted August 23, 2005 at 11:55 am | Permalink

    Here’s an updated regex:


    // Search for
    // :smiley:
    $search[$k] = '/(^|\W+)' . escapeshellcmd($v) . '($|\W)/';

    This won’t match “(this text:)” but it will match “(this text :)” or “(this text :).”

    –Steve

  173. Posted August 23, 2005 at 9:38 am | Permalink

    Steve,
    First thank you for your support and comments. Now diving in …

    I’ve never really been that great with Regular Expressions and on top of that, I started out with code from Alex King’s WP Grins. I then run into lots of problems with false positives and true negitives (other non-smileys tags were made smileys, and smileys tags were not made smileys). So I worked out a way to make sure that there is a space before and after the Smileys Tag to declare it, plus this adds a space before and after the final Smiley Image as to not crowd with the text.

    If your using the auto insert feature (click on Smiley and Smiley Tag added to post), then you shouldn’t have to worry about adding any space because it’s done automatically.

    You code and idea is a great one and I’ll have to look more into it. If I need any ideas or help with the code for this change, I’ll contact you and see if you have any ideas or could just help out. Thanks for you thoughts and ideas! ;)

  174. Posted August 23, 2005 at 8:59 am | Permalink

    Great plugin! Thanks for your hard work in putting this together. I just started building my own WP site and found myself wanting more smilies :) You plugin is perfect (well almost)!

    When I first set it up, it took me a few minutes to realize that the reason my smiley icons weren’t showing up is because I kept putting them at the end of my paragraphs. The solution, of course, was to add an extra space after everytime I used a smiley at the end of a paragraph or sentence but leaving me feeling this was more than a ‘hack’ than a ‘fix’, I took a look at the code to see what i could do there.

    Why are you not using preg_replace() in lmbbox_smileys_admin_convert() and lmbbox_smileys_comment_convert()? It seems like a perfect candidate function for this kind of work..

    Around line 482 you have

    $text = explode(' ', $text);
    foreach($text as $value) {
    if (($key = array_search($value, $lmbbox_smileys_info['search'])) !== false) {
    $output[] = str_replace($lmbbox_smileys_info['search'][$key], $lmbbox_smileys_info['replace'][$key], $value);
    } else {
    $output[] = $value;
    }
    }
    return implode(' ', $output);

    What if you changed that to

    // prepare the search and replace arrays. This should be done upon
    // $lmbbox_smileys_info init in the foreach right above
    foreach($lmbbox_smileys_info['search'] as $k => $v)
    {
    // This will search for
    // <whitespace>:smiley:<whitespace/comma/period/less-than sign>
    $search[$k] = '/(\s*)' . escapeshellcmd($v) . '([\s,\ $v)
    {
    $replace[$k] = '\\1' . $v . '\\2';
    }
    return preg_replace($search, $replace, $text);

    I’m testing it on my site now and I haven’t run into any problems so far. What do you think?

    –Steve

  175. Posted August 22, 2005 at 8:33 pm | Permalink

    Hello Zernebock,

    Most of the work has already been done if you have creaded a Smileys Pack for Matt’s More Smilies. If you read the readme.txt file included in the LMB^Box Smileys plugin package, it will instruct you as to how to put together a Smileys List for LMB^Box Smileys.

    Here’s a run down on what to do:

    First make sure that you have the lastest version of LMB^Box Smileys. After that, you will need to open up the LMB^Box Smileys plugin package and open up ‘lmbbox-smileys/smileys folder’. Now make a copy of the ‘wp’ folder and paste it on your desktop or somewhere good for you. Now rename the ‘wp’ folder to the Smileys List’s Abbreviation (no more then 4 chars). Next open up the folder and delete all the image files and make sure that the ‘smileys-list-config.php’ file is still there. Copy/Move your new Smiley Images into your folder and open up the ‘smileys-list-config.php’ file in a plain text editor or a php/html editor. You are going to fill out all the info that is needed in the file. Make sure you read all the comments about what everything is. NOTE: You can change the top line ‘// Smileys List Config File for wp’ to ‘// Smileys List Config File for YOUR_ABBR’.

    If you have any other problems, don’t hesitate to post another comment! I hope this helps out …

  176. Posted August 22, 2005 at 12:47 pm | Permalink

    Hi! I don’t know if it’s possible, but could you add an option to import a smileys list from Matt’s “More Smilies” plugin? I have my own list for this plugin and I find a little complicated your system to import smileys. Thank you!

    Gunslinger, I went to your site and it looks like everything is working like it should! I haven’t had time to update my WP install to 1.5.2 so I haven’t tested my plugins on the new version. I will be doing that soon though. If you have any more problems please feel free to contact me or post a comment. Thanks for your support!

    Hi. Big thanks for your Quicktags plugin!

    I’m trying to make the Smileys work on WP 1.5.2, but…

    It shows only ‘alt=:” />’ but not a picture. When i’ve looked into the sorce code i’ve discovered this thing:
    alt=:” />

    Can anybody help me to solve this strange thing?

    Thanks…

  180. Posted August 19, 2005 at 3:56 pm | Permalink

    Melody, I’m sorry that I didn’t respond sooner … Yes that was what I was going to tell you. After you have added your Custom Smileys List(s), you need to activate them by going to the LMB^Box Smileys Option page and enabling them in the Admin Write Pages and/or Comments.

    I’m glad that you have found what the problem was! And thanks for the great review / support! Hope everything works out fine …

  181. Posted August 19, 2005 at 2:38 pm | Permalink

    Ok, never mind. I went back through the comments and discovered that I missed the smiley options page. :rolleyes_wp: Thanks for the great mod!

  182. Posted August 19, 2005 at 10:56 am | Permalink

    Quick question – my custom lists aren’t showing up in the popup on the admin write page. They do show up after I sync lists, though. Just not in the popup.

    Great plugin by the way – I love it!

  183. Posted August 5, 2005 at 10:39 am | Permalink

    I’m not quite sure but it looks to be … what other plugins are you using? I really don’t think it has anything to do with LMB^Box Smileys. What is the now subdomain that you installed wordpress to? If you don’t mind, would you create a user on your blog so that I can take a look at what is happening? You can email me at tmontague AT lmbbox DOT com.

    WP 1.5.1.3 and no – i have to blame myself – i never did any backups… But this time i will… Since i was still in testing phase and not really made my blog too public, it doesn’t hurt that much.

    So you think it’s a bug in the database?

  185. Posted August 5, 2005 at 10:17 am | Permalink

    Ralph, before you go through all that! Do you have any backups of your DB BEFORE you installed the new version of LMB^Box Smileys? Also, what version of WordPress are you using?

  186. Ralph
    Posted August 5, 2005 at 10:11 am | Permalink

    Just followed the instructions – but no change. I made a second setup of WP in a supdomain and installed it again and it works there… I guess there’s something really broken so i try to export all me entries and comments and move to the new installation…

  187. Posted August 5, 2005 at 9:32 am | Permalink

    Ok Ralph, try this for me …

    First, Deactivate the plugin and when prompted, click Ok/Yes to remove all settings from the DB. Then, FTP to your plugin directory and delete the lmbbox-smileys folder. Check to make sure the the current plugin archive that you have is the latest version and that it’s not corrupt. Then extract the lmbbox-smileys folder from the archive and upload it to your plugin directory. Finally activate the plugin again.

    Hopefully now it should work just fine … I don’t know what is going on right now with your install, but it’s funky! Please let me know how things go …

  188. Ralph
    Posted August 5, 2005 at 9:02 am | Permalink

    forgot to mention: it shows up in the plugin management page but – as i said – no more tab in the options…

  189. Ralph
    Posted August 5, 2005 at 8:54 am | Permalink

    The tab for the plugin in the setting doesn’t show up anymore and if i place for the smileys beneath the contact form, i get an error as if the plugin wasn’t installed.

    I disabled all other plugins and tried around but no chance of getting it to work anymore… Can there be something wrong in my database?

  190. Posted August 5, 2005 at 8:21 am | Permalink

    What exactly is going on Ralph? I’ve tested version 1.7.2 on both my local server and on this server and I don’t have any problems … Please give a little more discription. Are the Option and Management Pages not showing up? Are the Smiley not showing on your blog?

  191. Posted August 4, 2005 at 10:48 pm | Permalink

    I just upgraded to 2.7.2 but for whatever reason, they don’t show up in the options anymore… I can de- / activate and reinstall as often as i want, with no result…

    Anyone else experiencing this problem?

  192. Posted August 2, 2005 at 11:27 am | Permalink

    Paul, I’m not sure which plugin was causing it but just as you have posted, the way to fix all plugin issues with LMB^Box Smileys is to add a high priority. I actually have just finished updating the plugin to version 2.7.2 to fix this issue. I had a verison 2.7.1 ready to release but didn’t get a chance to release it before I left for my vaction. When I first got your comment I when to looking to fix it and found exactly what you have commented. Now in the plugin, the 3 filters have 1 priority. So this should fix any problems with other plugins messing up the spacing in the post or comment content. You can download the lastest version above! Good Luck to you!

  193. Posted August 2, 2005 at 10:13 am | Permalink

    Well.. for a quick fix, I gave the add_filter calls

    add_filter(‘the_content’, ‘lmbbox_smileys_admin_convert’,’2′);
    add_filter(‘the_excerpt’, ‘lmbbox_smileys_admin_convert’,’2′);

    in lmbbox-smileys.php and that now shows the smilie replacement in my posts.

    There must have been another plugin I’m using intercepting the content before your plugin could replace.

  194. Posted August 2, 2005 at 10:00 am | Permalink

    I have IImage gallery plugin, but it is disabled.

    You can see a list of plugins I’m using here.

    http://postcardsfrommetrosuburbia.solitaryspaces.com/blog-stats/

    Its near the bottom of the page, and I use a lot of plugins. I’ve been playing and learning WP lately as I am a newer user. Once I settle on a design I like, I’m going to remove all plugins and just choose the few I absolutely need.

    Thanks for a quick reply.

  195. Posted August 2, 2005 at 9:27 am | Permalink

    What other plugins are you using? Are you using the IImage Gallery plugin? If so, that is most likely the problem! IImage Gallery works with the post content before the LMB^Box Smileys plugin does and it messes up the spacing that it outputs back out … so the Smiley Tags don’t register! Please let me know if you are using IImage Gallery, Thanks.

  196. Posted August 2, 2005 at 8:23 am | Permalink

    Not sure what I’ve done, or what may have caused it.

    I’m using your LMB^Box smilies plug-in and seem to be having an issue.

    When I make a post, in the admin panal. I have the Smilies button in my quicktags list. When I click the button, it brings up the popup smilie window. I choose a smilie, and it inserts the code into my post. When I publish the post, it doesn’t convert to an image, the post just displays the smilie code, ie :grin_tb:

    The weird part is that when I make a comment on my site, the comments quicktags has the smilie button as well. I do the same steps to add a smilie, and when I save the comment, the smilie code is converted into a smilie image.

    Any thoughts why the post doesn’t translate it? In the options for LMB^Box smilies, I left all the options at default settings.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok Markus, plans changed! I don’t have to go out until later so I’ve started taking a look at your site and the problem. First of all, you do have a nice site and second, I don’t know what language you speak / write in, but I sure have a hard time making out anything on your site … sorry, I can only read / speak / write English :doh_tb: !

    From what I can tell, I think the problem may be in the plugin’s code. From what I can tell, your Smiley’s List is setup right and everything. It’s really weird that the comment’s Smileys work fine but the Post’s Smileys don’t? :dry_tb:

    If you could, please pack up your whole lmbbox-filepress plugin folder and zip / rar :zip_ee: it and email it to me at tmontague AT lmbbox DOT com. Thanks!

As you can see above, I have ****’d out the user and pass that you posted and I will delete myself if you don’t when I’m done.

    Hi Thomas,
    Thanks a lot for your answer. I was VERY astonished do hears o quickly from you.
    Maybe I made something wrong, I do not know. But I tried to do it correct.
    I added a folder called “si” and uploaded it into the same folder as the “wp”, “ee” are and then I synced with your tool.

    It was clear to me, that the old smilies in older postings and comments are now gone, there is still only the texte there. But this is not that bad.

    I had before WP-grins installed, maybe this make the trouble??

    Thomas, it would be great, if you couold have a look, I give you here the link:

    http://www.sinusbild.com/blogxx/

    and you are registered (with my email, I did not know yours) with

    ****
    and the pass is

    ****

    It would be nice, if you could delete or change this login, because all people can read it here ;)

    At the moment I have two folder, what I want to display: the wp and the si
    If you want/must, you can of course install the plugin again.

    And it would be great, if both, comments and posts, would have the same smilies.
    Thanks in advance and I hope, my family-blog is not that bad ;)

    And yes, I will donate you of course (next week).
    I think, you did a VERY good job. Thanks realy!

    Ok Markus, first it would be usefull if I could know your website’s url. I’m not sure what is going on, but I believe it could be something with your config. Here’s a checklist:

    Did you create a new Smileys List?

    Did you add all the info for that Smileys List?

    Did you activate the Smileys List?

    Did you add your Smileys folder to the ‘lmbbox-smileys/smileys/’ plugin folder?

    Did you name your Smileys folder after your Smileys List Abbreviation?

    Did you make an Autoload Smileys List (did you make a php config file)?

    I know this is alot to take in, but there are alot of things that could be missed configured. If you wish, I could personally take a look at your config if you just add a new user with level 8 permisson. I hope one of these options work for you! Good Luck!

    Also, thank you for your support with these plugins! It’s really nice to hear that they are wanted.

    Hi Thomas,
    This plugin is cool, thanks a lot for this!! :clap_tb:
    I have installed both your plugins, Quicktags and this smileys-Plugin.

    I have created a new folder with some more smilies.

    But I have one big problem:

    All smilies does work perfect in comments!!
    But when I create a new post, I can see the smileys-Box with all smilieys, I can click on them and they appear with some text :smile_wp: but after “posting” the smilies does not appear.
    I have even tried to copy the same text from a comment-post to a new post, but nothing helped.

    Finally:
    -all works in comments, perfect!
    -all works in “new posts”, but after posting them, I can see only the smilie-text, not the image.

    I would be thankful for any hints!!
    Thanks in advance
    Best wishes

    Catonya, your talking about the Admin Write Pages WYSIWYG Plugins right? I haven’t tested Smileys with any of them. If the WYSIWYG Plugin removes the Quicktags Toolbar from the Admin Write Pages, then most likely it will not work but give it a try just to see. I will look into adding compatiblity to LMB^Box Smileys for WYSIWYG Plugins. ;)

    If you would like to add a direct link to the Smileys, follow the directions to add a link in the Comment Form but add the code to the /wp-admin/admin-functions.php file at ~line 583 (in the the_quicktags() function). You can put the code either before the if () statement or just after it before the echo line. Make sure that you remove the PHP tags () from the line that you add, you don’t need them here. :P

    Hope this works out for you!

    Is LMB^Box Smileys compatible with any of the WYSIWYG plug-ins for WP?

  207. Posted June 3, 2005 at 6:55 pm | Permalink

    Eva … I just update my LMB^Box Smileys plugin to version 2.6! With this version, it should fix at least some of the problems you were having with the Short Smileys Tags that were defaults with WordPress. You just need to install and activate LMB^Box Smileys 2.6 and go to your LMB^Box Smileys Option page and set the WordPress (wp) Smileys List to be the default for both the Admin Write Pages and the Comment Form. I hope you enjoy and it all works out for you … ;) !

    I know what you mean Eva! I have a question for you though, were you using my LMB^Box Smileys or WP Smileys plugin before? Or were you just using Smileys Tags like “:)” that were built into WordPress?

  209. Posted June 2, 2005 at 2:10 am | Permalink

    This is a great idea, but when I install the hack it wipes out my existing default smiles. The “code” is still there, but the icons become just text. I don’t want to have to go through all 200+ posts to change the smilies.

    Thanks Kenny, I really didn’t think about that situation. I always figured that the current theme would have a comments.php file in it. :doh_tb: I guess I’ll have to add this info to the documentation for both LMB^Box Comment Quicktags and LMB^Box Smileys.

    Yes having an easier way to add smiles would be GREAT! Thanks for the plugin.

    One thing you might want to add into your documentation (unless i missed it) is about the comments.php file:

    Example: This code should be put into the file “comments.php” from your current theme’s directory. If your current theme does not have a “comments.php” file, this code should be added instead to “wp-content/themes/default/comments.php”.

    I had some problems with qucik tags… being that the theme i’m using did not include a comments.php file. But all is well after searching the net. Thanks again for the plugin.

    I’m glad that you enjoy the plugin! I will be adding a new feature that Carey (see comment #3) suggested that should make adding your own smileys extremly easy! Thanks for your support … :smirk2_ee:

  213. Posted May 31, 2005 at 1:00 pm | Permalink

    Thank you so much. I am seriously hugging my computer screen right now. :thumbup_tb:

    I just got it all set up on my site, working perfectly. Though I just need to play around with it to then add my own smilies! :) Thank you. :bye_tb:

    I am sure that others will totally benifit from the show smilies rather than having it in the pop up window. I am not a fan of to many pop up windows, one window is all I need open really.

  214. Posted May 31, 2005 at 11:42 am | Permalink

    This is a very good idea! I like it very much :exclaim_ee:
    :ponder_tb:
    I could add a button to the Admin Manage Smileys page that will do a check for all images in the smileys directory. I would change the directory structure so that all images are in subfolders and that the subfolder’s name will be the Smileys List Abbr. and will also be what’s added to the end of the Smiley Tag for the image to keep all the tags different.
    This is a very good idea and I thank you Carey! :wink_ee:

    I like the overall plugin, but the idea of having to manually type in the tag and file name of any custom smileys doesn’t sound like fun…especially if I have hundreds of them.

    What about adding the ability to read the selected image directory and automatically create the smiley array? For example…

    $dir_name = "/home/public_html/images/smilies";
    $dir = opendir($dir_name);

    while ($file_name = readdir($dir)) {
    if ($file_name != "." && $file_name != "..") {
    list($file_alt, $file_ext) = explode(".", $file_name);
    $aKey = ":" . $file_alt . ":";
    $var = array($aKey => $file_name);
    $new_smileyarray = array_merge($new_smileyarray,$var);
    }
    }
    closedir($dir);

    This would be easier than having to use the admin interface when adding a new smiley list.

    Just a thought.

    Keep up the good work,
    Carey

    Did you use WP Smileys before I changed the name to LMB^Box Smileys? If so, is WP Smileys still activated and install? You should only have one Smileys plugin installed and activated at a time! That there is most likely your problem … if it’s not, I have no idea as to why it’s happening.

  217. Posted May 29, 2005 at 2:17 pm | Permalink

    I installed the quick tag and the smiley plug ins. Now, there are 2 smiley buttons displayed on the comment quicktag line. Any idea why this happened?
