Is it possible to keep the settings currently found in the Smilie Manager, but in in Style Properties (under General), be able to override the smilie directory for that particular style?
Right now smilies are completely separated from styles. Yes, you can change it in the ACP but it's a global setting for smilies, which is fine if you're working only with one style. However, if you're working with or using multiple styles, especially themed ones that involve more than color changes, to make it completely seamless theme down to the smilies doesn't always work.
One of the other reasons for this wanting this is that I've seen designers include their own smilie pack for other software, but that still requires the user to either overwrite the images in the default style's folder (as that is where the image path for smilies is set to), or edit each smilie to use a different path. I can see the same thing happening here.
