Title: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl 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 ďsmileyĒ 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 themselvesÖÖ

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 donít even care if itís done as an upgrade and Iíve to pay another $20 to increase the character count, I just need to have my own buttons for specific forms

Changed it to 50 on your forum via the database not sure if it will work though.

Awesome Iíll 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 donít mind paying to get a bigger increase

But the max you can give would be awesome as there are other forms Iíd 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 donít 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.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 25, 2021, 10:59:10 pm
Define expensive

And standard editor??


But Iím def interested

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.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 25, 2021, 11:09:38 pm
40$ is fine

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

Still want to do it thoughÖ..

Let me know how to pay, can you put it on the upgrade thingy??
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on August 25, 2021, 11:12:56 pm
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.

Cool beans, Iíll send it through in the morning

Thanks so much!!

Any chance you have the Thank you button figured out yet??  That was the next thing I was gonna ask about
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on August 25, 2021, 11:22:23 pm
Can you explain the thank you button?
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 25, 2021, 11:29:41 pm
Kinda like a post rating, goes where all those buttons are at the bottom right if you donít have that feature turned off

If you search thank you button on the smf forum or even google, there are a few kinds

I like the one that lists who said thank you on the post

Iím a member of another book group that has it, they are their own thing and run an older version of smf on their site

Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on August 26, 2021, 02:07:03 am
Added under Features and Options -> Posting Templates
You must assign which boards and membergroups to use

I built a global template option for admins only to create templates for everyone.

Note: this feature works in the normal editor with WYWSIG is off.

Awesome!!!!

Thank you so much
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 26, 2021, 11:49:15 am
The global doesnít work at all lol
Have to go in and manually add the template to each memberís profile, but the mod itself works amazing, exactly what I wanted!!

If you figure out how to fix the global thing so I can add templates from my profile and just turn them on in others let me know

Only thing I dislike is that it has use, create and edit lumped into one permission, I would separate them to a use permission and an edit/create permission

Thanks again 😁

For the global templates it should work. They won't appear in members profiles. Just when they try to post. They should have the drop down option. As long as the memebergroup has permission.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 26, 2021, 01:20:12 pm
Ya itís not working though lol

Iíll check again later and see if I missed something, Iím at the garage at the moment
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 26, 2021, 02:57:02 pm
Itís working now!

You only get the choice for global when you first add the template, on the edit screen itís only active or not, I deleted and then chose global when adding it and itís working perfectly 😁
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on August 26, 2021, 03:15:29 pm
Can you take a screenshot or send me link to page where you can't see it? The global option is only for admins currently.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 26, 2021, 03:19:27 pm
My laptop is a dinosaur so canít screenshot, but itís not showing on the edit template page
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on August 26, 2021, 03:20:12 pm
Can you send me a link to that page from the address bar?
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 26, 2021, 06:08:58 pm
I can tomorrow when Iím back at my laptop, itís showing on my phone so Iím guessing it was just my laptop being a pain

Iíll also try to get more info on that thank you button cause I would really love to have that even if itís an added cost

Ok so all good on the global, its in the edit section nowÖÖ

Here is the pic of the thank you button, I circled the stuff

Personally I think the button should be on the bottom right not the upper right  but everything else is awesome 🖤

Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on August 28, 2021, 02:39:31 pm
While we are on the custom topic, when I change the icons under the change message icons, they donít actually change, and how do you change the names??

Title: Re: Thank You Button
Post by: coffeegirl on December 10, 2021, 09:02:48 pm

@admin still interested in a Thank You button.....the actual pic is in the posts above, its an smf mod that can be installed i believe, just gotta have you do your thing, again i dont mind paying to get it


side note it should also have the ability to count the thanks and list them under the members profile on the side of the post,
Thanked: ### type thing

I checked it out. It is complex to get installed and setup unfortunately.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on December 10, 2021, 09:40:05 pm
ok, so does that mean you cant do it, or its gonna cost a lot??
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on December 10, 2021, 09:51:11 pm
I am unsure...Have to test it out and see. Just there is a lot of files I need to change update/manage. Judging if it is worth it to add or not...
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on December 10, 2021, 10:02:30 pm
there may be a simpler easier to add mod, thats just the first one that came up in google when i did an smf mod thank you search
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on December 10, 2021, 10:45:35 pm
Yeah I would probably build my own system.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on December 10, 2021, 10:54:39 pm
if you changed karma to  Thanks, and moved the appaud button under each post, and got rid of smite, it could work as on option between the two??


IDK i just want the damn button, and saw others wanted it too
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: CreateAForum on December 10, 2021, 11:32:29 pm
You can do that right now. Under Admin ->  Features and Options -> Karma.

Do Positive total only.
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on December 11, 2021, 10:05:17 am
yes but it wont say thanks it still says karma and it doesnt show on each of the posts, so you cant technically Thank someone for what they posted, just give them karma in general, Im much more interested in the actual thank you button like the one in the photo i posted
Title: Re: Custom Smilies Character Count
Post by: coffeegirl on December 11, 2021, 10:07:16 am
Is there any way to change the post rating icons to be like a thanks you button?? but also to keep track of who said thank you and how many thanks a member has received??
