Why have I created this Mod?
If you have a large amount of smilies in categories then when you click on More? you get a huge popup that takes ages to load, what would be better is if you could select each category individually and so that's what this hack does.

Is it Easy to Install?
You betcha, this is a no edits mod, just install the product, enable it in vbulletin options and as long as you haven't got a modified smiliepopup template then it's all done (if your template is edited, just revert it)

Can I switch it off?
Yep, it comes with an Enable option for if you want to switch back to the page that takes forever to load :)

v1.0.1 Update
Seems the vBulletin Options didn't export properly in the initial product so I've had to modify things slightly and export the mod again, sorry for any inconvience caused, just overwrite the old product with this new one.

Alternative Version
To have the dropdown displayed on the right side of the smiliepopup rather than a double tcat then please see this post (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1411835&postcount=12)

The enable option for this hack can now be found in vBulletin Options > Smilie Popup+

No settings in the admincp per your screen. The settings just aren't there under message posting interface options.

Very odd.. was working on my tests, but just tried it on a clean install and your right the option doesn't show up.. Just trying to fix it now.

Fixed now.. had to move the enable option to it's own setting group.

I suggested this over on vbulletin.com some time back, it should have been standard ages ago. Well done.

Works great. Was using another before. Any way to put it next to the Show Smiles and not have a double tcat?

Yeah, firstly edit Editor Templates >> editor_clientscript.

find:
var smiliewindow_x = 240;
var smiliewindow_y = 280;

replace with:
var smiliewindow_x = 480;
var smiliewindow_y = 560;

That'll double the size of the smiliepopup. then remove the other product and use this
one instead.

I get a new version number in the products, but the same result (the double tcats). I uninstalled the other and uploaded with allow overwrite to yes. Any ideas?

Very odd, I've just double checked the product xml of the post above and it has the new code, in the plugin manager do you have Smilie Popup+ or Smilie Popup+ Alternative?

Thanks a bunch... worked perfect on my 3.7 Beta 3! And thanks too for mentioning that edit... I always did want to make that smilie popup box bigger (as I use bigger smilies)... You wouldn't know by chance how to get the other one (where you click on top of post and it drops down to only show a few more smilies) a little bigger would ya?

Sorry for the delay in replying.. I didn't get a notification that this thread had a new post.

I'm glad you enjoyed the hack and I'm glad I was able to give you an extra helping hand too :) If you want to make the menu dropdown bigger then you need to edit a file.

clientscript/vbulletin_textedit.js find:

case 'smilie':
{
menu = this.init_menu_container('smilie', '175px', '250px', 'auto');
this.build_smilie_popup(obj, menu);
break;
}


you need to edit this part:
menu = this.init_menu_container('smilie', '175px', '250px', 'auto');
the width is currently 175px
the height is currently 250px

replace as you see fit..

once again, sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this.

Hi m03,

Looks as tho I am late in responding also *blush*... I get to working on new things and forget what I was doing prior... Thank you sooo much for your response... I really appreciate the help! Hopefully I'll get to making these changes tonight... You are the best!

It's the littest changes you make to your boards that make the biggest difference I think =0)

Hugs, Bree

Thanks for the mod, it's exactly what I needed. One extremely minor thing though, I had a category with an ampersand in the title, and none of the smilies would show up unless I changed the "&" to "and". Like I said, extremely minor, but I figured it's worth mentioning just in case anyone else experiences it.

Thank you for posting this! I had the same problem this morning and was just coming to ask how to fix it! Now all of my categories work perfectly! :D

Just installed this and works beautifully on vB 3.7.0 Gold. This was just what the doctor ordered for my HUGE smilie collection. :) Thanks!

Thanks, this looks very useful, however an option to show all, would still be handy.

I second the above request - a Show All or Complete Collection option added to the very top or very bottom of the category dropdown list would be very useful if you need to search across categories for a particular smilie.

Great mod!

Thank you so much for that - for the life of me I couldn't see why one of my categories wasn't showing! :)

I am sorry if this is OT, any ideas what I can do here? The categories are awesome, I guess I just need to find a way to scroll :)

My IE users will be ecstatic about this! haha
Everytime they try to view "More", their screens go haywaire and freeze..
I'm addicted to smilies and have probably close to 1000..

BUT, I have a tiny issue. on the reply or newthread page when you click more it works perfectly & the window stays on top. on the quick reply or quick edit however the popup immediatly goes to the back. i'm trying to figure out a way to force it to the front. anyone have any ideas?

thanks

thanks! works also for 3.6.4

maybe you can add to the form-select an method="post" - works better for me, cause i have vBcback installed.

Oh yea great idea and works perfect! It is nicer to use the product designed with the drop down on the right and a larger popup box. Should be a standard inclusion in VB!

I installed it this evening and everything worked on 3.8.4. Then I added some more smilies to different categories. Any category I added to, no longer works now when I select it from the drop down. I tried reinstalling the mod, but didn't help. Any suggestions?

Never mind I got it working again. It doesn't like apostrophes in the category name.

Working fine in 3.8.6... As was mentioned earlier it doesn't like apostrophes (') in category names- it also doesn't like ampersands (&)... I would stay clear of all special characters to be safe.
