    Thumbs up New Feature - My Smilies



    OK, now that the hols are over, we're going to start cranking the fun factor up a bit with some cool new features.

    The first one is for those of you who complain about the choice of smilies.

    How about this - upload 40 of YOUR favorite smilies to use as you wish.

    If you go to your User CP and page down, on the LHS you will see a new category: 'My Smilies'.

    Upload up to 40 and give each a shortcut. And don't worry, all the ones that are available now will still be there.

    This will only work for members who have reached a minimal number of posts and membership tenure. Newbs will have to wait a few days and contribute some wisdom.

    BRILLIANT!



    Please report back if you have problems.

    More goodies coming.

    Yes, initially you are limited to 60x60 pixels and (I think) 3Kb which should be small enough for a smiley.

    We will review and maybe permit larger smileys later on after we test this out.

    Also, if you save the smiley and upload it, the smiley has a white box around it as if it's part of the image.

    Example: Uploaded smiley :firemad:

    You would need a transparent gif for that one. Or we would have to run a white background.
