Custom Smileys for 'own domain' sites.
« on: September 16, 2012, 10:46:46 am »
I am disgruntled.
I initiated a forum at CreateAForum.com and changed it over to my own domain name because SMF promoted four benefits for doing so.
Then when I tried to purchase Custom Smileys I was only able to do so under the original ……..createaforum.com URL
My money was banked but nothing materialised.
SMF then said the update occasionally went missing in respect of sites operating under an owner’s domain name, but they had now put that right for me.
Indeed It looked as if they had, but the guide for using the update (http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides-and-tutorials/(guide)-custom-smiles-upgrade-option/ ) did not relate to ‘own domain name’ sites and, being written in 2006, seems well out of date with the current arrangement of Admin options.
In consequence no matter what I insert in Theme Settings I can only produce Smiley Sets under …….createaforum.com/Smileys.
And when I try to upload a new Smiley the best that I can get comes up with an icon instead of a Smiley image.
 
Guidance requested in plain simple English please.

The reason it seems out of date with the admin options is because it is a guide made for smfforfree forums. And there's not been a guide updated for the way that CAF is setup, but it's relatively the same.

I will send this to CAF so that he can help you as I have little knowledge of the custom smileys upgrade itself in how to set it up.

Please be patient :)

Many thanks indeed.
I can have unlimited patience once I know things are 'in hand'.
I'll gladly consider an appropriate donation once what I've paid for is working.

Fixed your smilies Mike you should be able to add custom smilies. Just use the add smilies button do not touch any of the other settings.

I have seen the changes that you made to the settings.
Changes that I would never have dreamed of making.
If it works as you say then that will be great.
Are you going to do a guide for others in my position?
Mike. ;D

Nope.
Under Edit Smileys they show up fine in the list, and I have set them to 'Post Form', but in the post form they still only show up as icons instead of images.


And BTW I have made a record of all the other settings that you made in case one gets changed.
I look forward to the next tweak that needs to be made.
Might my problem be anything to do with me using GoogleChrome as my browser?

I saw that you made another sortee into our admin settings for smileys but without the desired effect of Smiley images appearing in the add post panel.
Does it mean that it can't be done for an 'own domain name' adaptation of CAF?

Members of my forum keep asking "why haven't we got the custom smileys that you reckoned you had paid for".

Is this me being told to take my forum hosting elsewhere?

No, I still have to look into it, it is more complex than a normal issue. I've been sick this past week so I've been going deep into issues.

Smilies should be fixed now. Do not change any smilies setting other than adding/editing new smilies.
