Can't reorder smileys?

Post by CassieT » Wed Dec 05, 2012 10:32 am

I went to pull the Christmas smileys up from the bottom of the extra smileys page to the top of the posting page by going into Edit Smileys and checking/unchecking display boxes as I do every year, and it's just not having it. I can move them one at a time by clicking on the move up/down buttons, but if I do it that way I'll be here until after Christmas.

Has anybody got any ideas before I go all bah humbug on them? :lol:

  1. You're able to operate on the database and you know the basics of SQL.
  2. All smileys in question are in a block (speak: there's no other smiley inbetween them).
  3. All smileys in question are unchecked to be displayed, while all others are checked to be displayed. Or vice versa.
If a and (b or c) there's an alternative way. The main problem is that each time you reposition a smiley all other smileys have to be re-ordered again.

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.

What you can do is export your current smiley list.
Edit the pak file to re-order the smilies.
Re-import the smilies pak (allowing it to delete the old ones first)

Thank you for the replies :)

Why would it have changed though? It used to be so easy, now it's (almost) making me hate Christmas...

Nothing has changed.
Checking the box only makes them appear on the posting page, rather than only on the more-smilies page. It does not change their order.

I know what was wrong now :oops:

Some idiot hadn't made sure that all of the 'emotion' boxes were filled before they tried to change the order so every time I tried to move them, they were being ignored :oops:

That only took me the best part of 6 hours to work out :roll:

Merry Christmas... :lol:
