Custom Smilies Character Count
« on: August 25, 2021, 09:49:50 pm »
We purchased the custom smilies and it works fantastic

However, it has a limited character count of 30

Is there a way to change it??

The reason being my forum is a book group and I want to add a specific “smiley” that when you click on it, a format (customized table code) will be inserted into the post or reply for book reviews, so that all the info is the same for the books themselves……

I would prefer to just add my own custom button for the form, but have not been able to find a way to do so other than changing the smilies to other buttons

I don’t even care if it’s done as an upgrade and I’ve to pay another $20 to increase the character count, I just need to have my own buttons for specific forms

Awesome I’ll check it out and let you know

If there is any way to increase it more that would be awesome my table looks like this

Code: [Select]
[table][tr][td][url=Book cover link ][/url][/td]
[td][center] Author Name
[b]Title [/b]
Series[/center] [hr][center]
Synopsis
[hr]
Review
[/center][/td][/tr][/table]

50 worked!!! So it can be increased 😁

Again I don’t mind paying to get a bigger increase

But the max you can give would be awesome as there are other forms I’d love to have as well by just clicking a button instead of always having to copy and paste from word

Hmm not sure if that is the best way to do it. For system performance... That's an odd workaround you have.

Is there another way to add custom buttons to the posts??

So when you click on an icon/smiley that specific or another custom table would appear??

If not I don’t mind being the guinea pig for new buttons lol

I can add something like this https://web.archive.org/web/20201201091032/https://www.smfsimple.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;download=224 but would be more expensive as it an in depth change.  Works with the standard editor only.

Probably do if for $40. The editor is the one that is on this support forum. If that's what you use then it should work great.

Just note. It looks like each user has to define their own set of templates.

40$ is fine

I thought it looked sortable through the member groups from those pics you sent ??

Still want to do it though…..

Let me know how to pay, can you put it on the upgrade thingy??

I sent over an invoice to your email.
It looks like it is membergroup controlled who has permissions to create templates.
But I don't think you can make a global template that everyone can use. Might be able to modify it though.
