  • Please, sir DougO - may we have our emojis back?

    We're feeling rather expressionless here. Can we have lots of them? Pretty please? Interestingly, there's an emoji button on this post but not when I reply to other posts. Our Looney would love to be able to do this again! (oh, especially this one!!) (okay so maybe those last ones need work, too...) EDIT: Well, crud - they don't work at all even though it looks like it. Booo!

    Thanks, Doug!

    Yes this needs to get fixed. Without emojis reading Looney's posts is very boring. LOL

      Another try...

      Because I was unsure if the smilies were a built-in or an add-on for vBulletin 5.
      So I checked it out:

      Forum Posts
      • Supports BB Code in posts
      • Supports HTML in post
      • Smilies
      • Avatars
      • WYSIWYG or standard editors for posts and Private Messages
      • Attachment images (.gif, .jpg., etc.) stored on filesystem (optional, via Admin CP)
      • Preview post option
      • Polls
      • Post Reporting - report posts to moderators
      • User post count
      • Admin tools: edit, delete, move, etc.
      • Preview-safe Attachments
      So. It's a built-in aka a basic feature.
      And the only hassle I can imagine is, that the file(s) containing the smilies are damaged.

      To solve the problem, these files should be replaced with proper ones - I suppose.
      Dear DougO could You... PLEASE :-)

        I apologize for the delay in responding to the requests in the Site Support and Suggestions. Life got extra busy after Thanksgiving.

        It looks like the default vBulletin provides a small number of default Smilies. I checked on the vBulletin members support forums and there are some larger collections of Smilies posted there from other forum owners. I'm going to look through those and pick one to upload here. We definitely need more emoticons!

          Seems that "smilie", "emabarrassment" and "wink" just refuse to show up.

            Because these 3 yet not working smilies are BASIC smilies, I miss them much.
            And I suspect, it's not only me, waiting for the chance to use them.

              I've uploaded new images for the "smilie" , "emabarrassment" and "wink" emojis.

              I've acquired a collection of 300 emojis, however it appears that vBulletin Cloud lacks a bulk upload feature. The old version had a way to upload an entire collection rather than one at a time. I'm going to check on the support forums and see if there is a way. Are there any other popular emojis that I can individually upload in the meantime?

              Thanks,

              -DougO
