I'm at the Administration >> Smilies >> Add/Edit Smiley page and I've inserted the code for the smiley, selected the smiley from the drop-down and given it a short-cut and when I try to save it I get this error:

The code to use for this emotion should not be more then 10 symbols.

Can anyone please explain how I add emoticons to the forum? I did a search on this and found one topic, but nothing with this error (maybe I missed it?) Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

How I have added them using the [ and ] brackets around the shortcut word. [Smiley1] for example.

Upload the graphic (.gif or .jpg or .png) to your smileys directory and add'em up! 🙂

I haven't used the import pack thing. I just do them one by one. Sorry I can't help ya there.

Thanks Zero!

So I upload to the actual directory - not try to paste the HTML or BC Code into the "Add Smiley" section right? Okay, well that explains why I was getting the error, I kept trying to paste the smiley HTML code into the "Code" slot on the Add Smiley page...my bad!

Thanks for your help. 🙂
