Move smilies to below text area (and optionally add to Quick Reply)

vB Version: 4.0.8 Rating: (26 votes - 4.73 average) Installs: 278
Released: 06 Dec 2009 Last Update: 21 Nov 2010 Downloads: 1447
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Auto-Template  

NOTE: This will break your 4.1.4 Quick Reply if you have smilies enabled there unless you do the edit below.

This moves the smilie box to below the text area when posting within threads, blogs, groups, PMs, and cms when using the Advanced Editor (new item or advanced reply). This is done using just CSS. The plugin simply appends the new CSS file to the editor.css file link in the page. It can also make the smiliebox show on the showthread page below the text box in Quick Reply if you do the Optional Edit below.

Attachment 107256

This mod is supported for the default style only as trying to debug other's site CSS issues is not easy.

This has been tested in firefox, Safari and IE7.


Version History:
1.0 2009-12-06: initial release by Lynne at vbulletin.org (pre 4.0.1)
1.1 2010-01-13: fixed issues with 4.0.1; made it move the smilies to the bottom for sending a new PM ('blog'), and for posting a New Discussion ('group') (4.0.1)
1.2 2010-01-23: fixed it to work if you store your css in the filesystem (4.0.1)
1.3 2010-05-05: added fields so it will work with vbcms and editpost (4.0.1)
1.4 2010-10-23: Modified CSS to use new stylevars - you do NOT need to upgrade to this version if your CSS is working just fine for you! (4.0.8 - see note below for 4.1PL1)


To install:

1. Import product-lynne_smilies_below.xml

2. Go to Settings > Options > Message Posting Interface Options > Put smilie box below textarea > Yes

3. Go to Settings > Options > Message Posting Interface Options and make sure you set these two settings:
Smiliebox Total Smilies - this is the total number of smilies you want to show
Smiliebox Rows (smilies below textarea) - this is the number of rows of smilies you would like

NOTE: The Total Smilies must be evenly divisible by the Rows, ie. you can't set the Total to 17 and have 2 Rows as that won't work.

4. OPTIONAL - If you also want the smiliebox to show on the showthread page under the Quick Reply, then you must do the following:
a. Go to Settings > Options > Message Posting Interface Options > Add smiliebox below Quick Reply on showthread page > Yes (Note that the above options, Put smilie box below textarea must also be set to Yes)
b. Make the following template edit in the template "showthread_quickreply".
Find the following:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add in the following line among the bottom divs (for 4.0.8):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


OR
Add in the following line among the bottom divs (for 4.1.0 PL1):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

OR in 4.1.10 forward, find this code in the SHOWTHREAD template:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add directly below there:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


To get this to work with 4.1.4 (and later) Quick Reply:
Edit the plugin "Add smilies to Quick Reply also" and remove, or comment out, the line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


To uninstall:


1. Uninstall "Move smilies below textarea"
2. If you added the smiliebox to the showthread.php page in the Quick Reply, then remove the template edit done above.

This will not work for pre-beta 5 vB4.

You will have to ask over on vb.com how to make your smilies larger. This mod does nothing to the size of them, it just moves them below the box.

I posted the code for having two rows and stated what to do. Just adjust it for 3 rows - multiply one by 3 and divide the other by 3 - I even highlighted the code in red for what to change in another post where someone was asking about this.

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you have a link where I can see this? Was your page fine before you turned on this mod?

See this post. I highlighted what you need to change. In your case, you want to change 2 to 3 and .5 to .33.

What page is that on? It looks like the ajax edit in the post, but this mod shouldn't be doing anything to that.

Do you have a test account I can log in with because I can't see the problem as a guest.

And actually, looking at this image again: Attachment 108742 I don't see how that is happening.... did you move the Post Quick Reply and Go Advanced buttons to the top of the Quick Reply? Also, does it happen for regular users since a regular user is not going to see the Moderation Tools? I am not getting anything like this on a default vbulletin style on my test site. If it is your style, then I don't know that I will be able to figure it out since it will most likely be a css thing and I can't trace your css changes down.

I think I found it, vbulletin settings, Message Posting and Editing Options, you must have "Yes, Click not required" selected for quick reply.

Instead of going through all that work to put the smilies below the quick reply box, what would it take to put the Smily icon itself that is there when you click Go Advanced ? It's to the right of the icon for the text color. I think that would look more cleaner and keep the simplicity of quick reply.

Just a thought.
Thanks

I actually didn't intend to have this mod put the smilies below Quick Reply. I only wanted to move them to underneath the text box on pages where they were already on the side. Then I realized it was easy to just put them in QR also.
