I have a daunting task and I have no idea the best way to go about it. Over many years my list of smilies has grown to around 216 and they are now not only far too many for what I want but also many of them are no longer appropriate for my site plus the :code: used on many of them are not descriptive of what they are. So I now have a list of 130 smilies that I want to use...some are from the current list, some are new, some have the same :code: and some don't. Any ideas on the best way to go about updating the 222,000 posts that I have to the new smilies? Warning to others...when creating your smilies list for your site...make sure you give this area a considerable amount of thought for the future and don't get caught out.
