We Got Smilies!

Yes, we got smilies! Lots and lots of smilies! :mrgreen: ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ™‚

Actually, we always had the smilies. You just had to know the correct code to enter in order to get the smilies to appear. No need to do that anymore! Thanks to the WP Grins Plugins from Alex King, the smilies are now available for anyone to use.

โžก This Plugin allows you to put clickable smilies on your post and comments forms. Canโ€™t remember the right syntax for one of the smilies? Just click on it and it will be inserted right into your post/comment. How cool is that? โ“ โ— ๐Ÿ’ก

The Plugin is really easy to install. Just upload the single file to your WordPress Plugins folder and then activate it in your WordPress Plugins control panel. That’s it! If you are using a version of WordPress prior to 2.1, you will need to upload the included prototype.js to your wp-includes/js/ directory.

This is my favorite smiley: ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

    Why not add a “Dancing banana of love” smiley to that list? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      No smiley list is complete without the dancing banana

    2. ilker says:

      no need! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        I agree !! where is it

    3. Good call on the banana! Where is it โ“ โ—

    Cute plugin, but it’s a little slow ๐Ÿ™ and I’m not sure that it really adds that much in terms of real value… That is, unless you add the dancing bananas of love ๐Ÿ˜ฏ as Kiltak suggests. Than I might have to reconsider… ๐Ÿ™„

    I can see people using it a lot in this post, a few more times in subsequent posts, but will likely end up the way the karma plugin did. But then, I’m feeling pessimistic today as well ๐Ÿ˜‰

      You know what I would love, a plugin that lets you edit your last post for about 15 minutes so that a guy could change a Than into Then…

      1. Ashish Mohta says:

        I would love to have a plugin which can just allow the author to comment without going to blog home page and still notify the subscribers

    I think smilies in comments are okay, for some reason I find the excessive use of them in posts makes them look quite..unprofessional. I understand this is just a testing one though, hehe..


    1. ilker says:

      agreed! ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  5. pixelPruner says:

    Sorry to be boring, but I hate emoticons. I use “:)” and “XD” and “:P”, but I don’t get the need for images. Especially animated ones. They just look tacky.

    Maybe if they didn’t look like they were created in 1980 I wouldn’t have such an objection.

    I agree with Allen, fine for comments, but keep them out of the posts ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. I agree! Also, I think it makes the comment area look tacky – although I think it is a good idea, I just wish it was implemented differently….

  6. Leftblank says:

    I guess it can be nice, but it doesn’t have my vote either; I don’t need phpBB smilies to express myself, besides that the animated ones are pretty ugly ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @pP and Allen, I agree, in posts it looks pretty cheap to have loads of comments floating through the text, comments are ‘ok’.

  7. HMTKSteve says:

    I can do without the smilies too.

  8. Johns Dad says:

    lol your so g*y john

    1. What is the point of that comment?!

    Next time you make a post about the 12x zoom in regards to booth babes we’ll be able to give an appropriate response:

    I’m getting the feeling that you are over using the plugins. There should be a balance between manual scripting and plugin use, as over use of plugins slow down your website to visitors using dialup.

  13. Albert says:

    Alright Let’s smile ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜†

  14. Allen.H says:

    Hmmm, now that I see a bunch of them in each comment, it got me thinking…and I wonder if spammers and online-mobs are going exploit the use of these when they attempt to hit.


  15. Chris says:

    Nice one John, you find all the best plugins!

  16. chrisjos says:

    thanks john …… u got me ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Sandeep says:

    not very sure whether its a good addition to blog or not

    1. Yeah, they really are being over used!

  18. Cool – this will certainly make the blog more lively ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But as with anything – if it’s used too much it’ll lose it’s magic. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yeah, of course your favorite smiley is the evil one ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ :mrgreen:

  19. Nik Agarwal says:

    This is awesome. Like Hannes said, this will make the blog much more lively and more fun to use. My favorite icon is the :roll:.
