ordering smilies

    Not quite sure where to put this so apologies if it's in the wrong place.

    It concerns smilies imported from my old vB site.

    I've been trying to dictate the order in which they show in the WYSIWYG editor page. Since this seemed to be ordered alphabetically I added a prefix to the Title which appears to have worked well in the Admin CP but not in the actual forum where they are showing up in a totally random order.

    Has anyone any suggestion how to resolve this and get my smilies showing up how I want them?

    They are listed in the editor in the order they are added, by smiley ID.

    So he could just delete them all, and then add them back in the order he wants them to appear, no?

    Yes that would work. It's not ideal, but in the absence of explicit display orders for smilies it is the only way.

    Keeping hope alive that a way to categorize and order smilies comes soon!

    'she' could but don't think it would go down too well with the membership!

    But I joined the petition! Thanks for that. [​IMG]

    Deleting and recreating the smilies won't affect your members at all.

    It should only take 10 minutes or so and once completed all previously used smilies will continue to display as before, assuming you use the same replacement text.
