    Is the directory path correct? It should be relative to where you have installed XenForo. So if your site is installed in the root (or even a directory) and you have the smiles folder in the same location, the path would be


    I note that you have put "smiles" not "smilies". That's fine as long as that's your folder name and you haven't mistyped it.

    Sorted it, for some reason the smiles permissions were 640 not 644, everything ok now.
