History

I requested a tool to check for duplicated smilies in vbulletin.com like you can check in this link, but apparently the idea was not well accepts.

At a long time that I distrusted repeated smilies in my forum, then to kill that doubt I created a small tool to detect the duplicated smilies.

How does this work?

Most simple possible, the tool check MD5 for all files and list for you all duplicated.

More info about MD5 you can read in this article of Wikipedia, but in small words, md5 is an unique hash of file content.

In my board at first run of this tool, detected 50+ duplicated smilies.

The future of this tool

This tool will not be improved to have management resources like edit/remove duplicated by admincp. My objective is open the eyes of vbulletin team to add by default md5 for all smilies in to database and check in upload progress to alert user in the case of already have the same smilie registered in database.

We will never again have smilies with different names, but identical content!

There is a bug with this. It doesn't display the smilies properly if you have them in sub folders. It assumes that all smiles a just in the smilies folder.

Thanks.

This works really well but it would be FANTASTIC if you had a DELETE link next to each one so we could go ahead and just delete the duplicates.
