they were all working well until i added my own folders to the mix and now when i try to change the catagory they old icons stay. did i have to keep the icons in the standard folder the same? i had them the same before and it didnt work so i dont think thats it i see many people have had this prob but i never saw the solution. thanks ~zak~


  • Have you "Rebuild Vanillacons" from the settings tab?

    Most the time, I change the smilies, I have to reload the edit page with shift pressed to bypass cache and proxy!

    Try to clear your browser cache after rebuilding vanillacons

  • i have rebuilt and cleared cache, i mean this has been on for a month not working, just sitting there.
  • ok here is a test i did, might help diagnose i renamed the standards folder to standardd(just so it wouldnt display by default.) it default ot one one my folders(catagories) and displayed no smileys. is there a limit to how many folders/ smilyes you can have. He says it could be unlimited but may a varible or some. cause i have about 20 folders and over 2000 smilyes
  • I'm just guessing around, because Vanillacons work fine for me:

    You gave write access to all necessary files? I remeber, Vanillacons needs write access to two of it's files.
  • yes i set thr two files to have all permissions, will double check tho.
  • crap, now I'm runnig out of any good or useful idea! :-(
  • I have some .gif files that are pretty big. i was gonna take them out. Could that be making this happen. I had it working with 2 custom folders but i added about 10 more and then it didnt work.

    Image size shouldn't matter!

    Have a look at the js-file, and the smilies.php (or what it is called - can't check it from work), if they list all smilies correct!

    Are there smilies having the same file name in different categories? This may do some harm too!

    Even try to load some smilies manuall in your browser, by entering their url in the address field.

  • I had to set CHMOD 777 to smilies.php and smilies.js. After that it worked just fine for me :)

    Have you tried disabling the extension, deleting it, downloading a new copy from the addons page, uploading the brand new default one and get that working? Because if that doesn't work, then you've got some other problems...
  • yea if i take away all my folders the defaults stilll work. I downloaded many smiles some i bet there are some with the same name in differant folders. i will try 777, then add all .gif to one folder rename doubles and sort them into better catagoryies as i was gonna do anyway if that doesnt work i will take a look in the .js and php files. thanks guys!!
  • What CHMOD settings did you have the two "smilies" files at before?
  • i dont think i had "x" on the last two.
  • I added 3 smilies to an existing set and they wouldn't show (Safari and Firefox), no matter what I did -- refresh, empty cache etc.

    About a week later they suddenly showed up!

    Go figure. pic
  • I added 3 smilies to an existing set and they wouldn't show (Safari and Firefox), no matter what I did -- refresh, empty cache etc. none would show or just the new ones would not show?
  • Just the new ones.
  • not the problem i am having(i dont think) interesting tho. that was prolly a messed up server cache???
