Post subject: Resizing My Emoticon Field

How do I re-size the emoticon field that is to the left of the text field during a reply?
(not the field that pops up when you click on "view more emoticons", I have already re-sized that one) -

If someone could please tell me the name of the file that contains that info, I can go edit it and make it larger - thanks New Guy

I think it's just in post_body.tpl . Not sure of the file name exactly, but I remember all you have to do is edit the number of rows of smilies.

I'm think I'm having flashbacks - I was in this file last year and was able to enlarge the "more smilie" box, but I don't see any numbers for table rows, so I'm guessing there is a trick -
Here is the pertinent part of the file if someone would be kind enough to show me what to edit - thanks New Guy


<td valign="middle" align="center"> <br />
<table width="100" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
<tr align="center">
<td colspan="{S_SMILIES_COLSPAN}" class="gensmall"><b>{L_EMOTICONS}</b></td>
</tr>
<!-- BEGIN smilies_row -->
<tr align="center" valign="middle">
<!-- BEGIN smilies_col -->
<td><a href="javascript:emoticon('{smilies_row.smilies_col.SMILEY_CODE}')"><img src="{smilies_row.smilies_col.SMILEY_IMG}" border="0" alt="{smilies_row.smilies_col.SMILEY_DESC}" title="{smilies_row.smilies_col.SMILEY_DESC}" /></a></td>
<!-- END smilies_col -->
</tr>
<!-- END smilies_row -->
<!-- BEGIN switch_smilies_extra -->
<tr align="center">
<td colspan="{S_SMILIES_COLSPAN}"><span class="nav"><a href="{U_MORE_SMILIES}" onclick="window.open('{U_MORE_SMILIES}', '_phpbbsmilies', 'HEIGHT=900,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes,WIDTH=1200');return false;" target="_phpbbsmilies" class="nav">{L_MORE_SMILIES}</a></span></td>
</tr>
<!-- END switch_smilies_extra -->
</table>
</td>
</tr>

Wow, that is the same exact question I asked -
Why do you think dogs and things gave that person a direct answer, but myself only a General link? Oh well, after a couple hours, I figured it out -

I need a mod I think - there has got to be a better way to organize these smilies -

I would like to be able to see the actual emoticon while organizing, so I can put all the fat smilies in one column, (meaning that they would each have to be the lead one in each row, if I decided to put them in column 1).
Any links to smilies mods that would accomplish this, (allow me to see the actual .gif file, rather than just the name/code) would be greatly appreciated -

He could have forgotten. Hell, I remember reading that thread and actually doing that to my board, but forgot how.

And this might be what you're looking for, but it's severely old and might now work.

Because I'm lazy, and because if you had searched a little bit you would have found the answer to your question without having to ask the same question. icon_wink.gif

Here's a MOD that will help you arranging your smilies.

that smilie mod looks exactly like what I'm looking for, but it kinda looks too complicated for me to install - any advice, suggestions?

Try to install it, it's easier than it looks.

Make backups of the files you're going to edit.
Use a good text-editor.
Take your time to do he edits.
Once done, upload the edited files and see if things work as intended.
In case of failure, replace the edited files with the backups and check the edited files.
Sooner or later you'll get it right. icon_wink.gif

Your confidence has me inspired - icon_smile.gif

1) - uploading the gifs will be easy - icon_biggrin.gif

2) - I should be able to edit the files properly, (if I take my time) - icon_redface.gif

3) - I'm a little unsure about the sql part. Do I do it in my c/panel?
Can you please tell me what to open in my c/panel, where to go, to paste those commands - thanx

That info should be in your board's config.php, where it says $dbname =
Don┤t post the content of that file here though.
