Can't install smilies

Post by SistemaRayoXP » Sat May 05, 2018 8:28 pm

phpBB version: 3.1.12
PHP version: 5.3.3
Database program: SQLite 3.22
Hosting provider: Personal website in Windows XP with IIS 5.1
URL of the forum: http://www.armandotechnologies.info.tm/ ... /index.php
Account to check the problem (Username/password): test/Test123

I've downloaded a smilies pack. The install instructions are very simple: "Replace the original smilies", and that was what I just did. But I didn't see any result. I've purged the cache and still the old smilies are showing instead of the new ones. I'm browsing with Chrome 49 in Windows XP. Any help would be appreciated

That is from 9 years ago! It says it's to replace the smilies from phpBB2.

Upload and install them as normal smilies.
Upload the smilie image to forum/images/smilies

Go to
Administration Control Panel (ACP) > POSTING tab > Smilies
Bottom of the page click add multiple smilies
Smilies that have not yet been added appear at the top of the screen.
Enter a smilie code (ie the bit you type to get it to display)
Enter the Emotion (ie what it means)
Width and height if they are not already set
Choose whether it will be displayed on the posting page (ie to the right of the screen you write in)
Choose the smiley order (ie where it appears in the order of the smilies you have)
Tick the add box
Submit

If you cannot see the right side of the screen completely then you probably have a large smilie. You can fix this by clicking the triangle at the top left of the screen to close the admin menu and give you more width to play with.
