Becoming Adept!

Evening all

So , I recently hooked up with Guild Portal and quite frankly am loving it.  As usual, the guys using the sites have all kinds of requests and one was more emoticons in the forums.  Lo and behold MOTTIE!! =)   Has the answer.

So I did my best to follow the instructions, and I got the additional smiley face button which pops up a box with custom emoticons - GENIUS.  However, when I mouse over the custom icons I get a JS Page error

Webpage error details

User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; Trident/4.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.2; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; Media Center PC 5.0; OfficeLiveConnector.1.3; OfficeLivePatch.0.0; .NET CLR 3.0.30729)

How sad was I =)

Anyway, I am sure it is something really stupid because I tried it on Motties Site and it worked like a charm.  So there is something I am missing or something stupid I am sure

Can anyone help? Mottie? Anyone =)

I figure someone must have seen this and am hoping says Yeah dummy - check this!

Mind you, the instructions on how to put it in, and what I found I had to do where a bit different and it looked like the last post on the thread related to the custom emoticons was in 2009 so I really am hoping I missed an updated thread someplace.



Again Thanks for any help or insight!

Hi Skerry!

Actually you found a bug in my script! So, don't feel stupid!

The problem was basically the script was expecting the editor to have a certain ID, but yours was one number off. So I figured out a way to generalize the ID more. Check out your forums and you should find that the emotes are working!

Enjoy!

Works like a charm - now as long as I don't get fired for spending my day searching out neat new cool (and some semi cool) emoticons!!
