installing smiley packs

Post by Dr Funkulus »

I'm sure this has been asked trillions of times before. I've downloaded a smiley pack and unzipped it. How do I install it now? Thanks a million.

- Upload the smiley-pack into your smiley-folder
>>http://yourdomain.com/phpbb/images/smilies/

- Go To the ACP and click on "Smilies"

- click on "Import Smiley Pack".

- Then choose "???.pak" file

- Then Click 'keep existing smilies' or replace existing smiles'

- then click import smiles

- hey presto you now have installed your smily pack.

hope this helps

cheers

That's the step I'm having trouble with: that page doesn't seem to exsist. I get a 404 error every time.

My domain name is pipeline486.net, so I assume that if things WERE working, that I'd just replace the "yourdomain.com" with my domain name, and that page would appear? Well, it doesn't. :?

When you set up phpbb you would have uploaded the phpbb folder to your web host. When you did this you would probably have used ftp software to do so. Use the same method to load the smiley pack onto your server and then use the admin panel to install it.
