Smilies categorized like in WhatsApp?

Post by Holger » Thu Feb 16, 2017 2:35 pm

Hi,
I would like to request an Ext that categorizes the smilies in tabs, like WhatsApp:

https://images.gutefrage.net/media/frag ... 8940045000

http://www.androvid.de/images/news/emoji-iphone-1.png

Perfect would be if it could feature the most used smilies in that special tab, most used by me as a user (prefered) or most used by the forum overall.

I think this would be a great thing for forums using many smilies.

๐Ÿ˜Ž I am using a firefox extension to add emoji directly into this post ๐Ÿค“

So, is it really necessary to make it part of PhpBB when is something that is (almost) standard in many popular sites..

Firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-Us/firefo ... ikeyboard/

Chrome
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... i?hl=en-US

this way it's not only in phpbb .. but other sites such as facebook, g+, ...etc

I got focused on Emojis here without having accurately read the TS.

Nice request, though. :geek:

Hmm, are you sure about that? I did some testing, and my Chrome (65.0.3325.162) is OK with editing or quoting messages in a phpBB board with emojis. :)
