WP Smileys

This page is just for archival purposes! WP Smileys plugin is not being devolved anymore. LMB^Box Smileys is the current plugin.

Until I have time to come back and put a more detailed info, this will have to do …

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.

What’s Next?
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 …

    SEO Blogger, no this isn’t the same one as Alex King, but it was inspired by his plugin. Please make sure you use the new version LMB^Box Smileys and not this old one. It’s here for archival purposes.

    Is this the same one as Alex King? Does this one has clickable version for post/page?

    My pleasure Aidan! I want my plugins to do what they need to be doing! Also before I go any farther, make sure that you are using the newest version of my Smileys plugin! I changed the name of the plugin from WP Smileys to LMB^Box Smileys (go here).

    If I’m reading what you said correctly, you want the smiley images to be displayed right on your Comment Form and not having to open up a popup window, right? Well currently there isn’t any such thing, but once again you made another idea possible! I was toying with the idea to have a Smileys Popup Page Template that you can make and put in your theme’s folder to be able to change the layout of the page easily. Now with the need to put the smileys directly into the Comment Form area, I could move the functions that make the smiley output to the main plugin file and then you would only need to call a function to display the smileys WHERE EVER you want! I’ll be looking into this … until later.

    I recently got this awesome plug in, thanks for taking my idea and well, creating it! :) … It’s great …

    Though I am not exactly very WP smart, and technical mumbo jumbo always gets me confused. Is there a way to show the smilies in the comment area with out having them be in a pop up window? I have tried reading the Readme for the answer, but I could be missing it. :)

    Thanks again for taking my idea and working with it. It’s perfect to be able to have more smilies available in Admin. :)
