Having installed the Shortcodes into  Text Widget Plugin thought I would look at expanding the smilies usage on MyWordPress .

Having tried out a couple of smilies plugins I have opted for the Custom Smilies plugin by Crazy Loong .

This adds a popup  selector on the write post menu so you can pick a smiley to insert  :-D also adds the smiley selector to the comments area.

You can easily define what to type when adding more smilies in the Manage Smilies admin  area. :lol:

You can select this option

Use the action named comment_form in comments.php if your theme support it. So you don’t need to add cs_print_smilies() in comments.php manually.

To insert the smiley selector block though this did not work on the Stallion Theme,the smilies selector block appeared below the submit button, so a small hack on comments.php was required.

The smiley plugin has been downloaded 78735 and is rated 5

Adding a smiley or two to your WordPress site does not come much easier than this a big :thumbsup:
