Hi all,

I was very pleased with how easy it was to install and integrate JForum into my site. Kudos to all!

I do have a minor problem however, in that I cannot see the emoticons.

In my SystemGlobal.properties...

html.tags.welcome = u, a, img, i, u, li, ul, font, br, p, b
html.attributes.welcome = src, href, size, face, color, target, rel

Not sure what else to check.

If it helps, my site is http://www.activityguidebook.com

Thank-you for the help!!

I don't beleive that allowed HTML tags have anything to do with the Smilies.

I am wondering though, what kind of database are you running. I'm having smilie troubles too.

In your $APP_SERVER/webapps/jforum_name/WEB-INF/config/SystemGlobals.properties file, do you have these lines?

smilie.image.dir = images/smilies
smilie.image.pattern =

The smilies depend on you having entered the correct forum context in your Admin/Configuration panel. Check that you entered that in correctly.

e.g. http://yourip.com:8080/jforum/

Also, see my posting about a possible bug regarding whether the trailing slash should be included.

Thanks for the input...

I do have:
smilie.image.dir = images/smilies
smilie.image.pattern =

It must be related to context suggest by netbracketsJeff.

For better or for worse, here is what I have done. I wanted the JForum context (root '/') to share the same context as the rest of my webapplication so it is easy to share the session. Also, I want to provide a seperate path for the forum, so simply refer to is as being in the /forums path. This works for everything (http://www.activityguidebook.com/forums/list.page, http://www.activityguidebook.com/forums/show/22.page, admin, etc.). When I post a new message the path is now moves down to the root, removing the 'forums' which I added (http://www.activityguidebook.com/jforum.page?module=posts&action=insert&forum_id=22).

I tried experimenting with the context in the Admin panel with no apparent luck.

Is their hope with this approach? Thanks in advance!!

Well, here is what the properties on the images show:
http://www.activityguidebook.com//images/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif

(that 9d71xxxxx number is a reference to a specific smilie)

Note that you have 2 "//" after your domain URL. Take that out in the config and it should work fine.

I had this problem too, I just used a rewrite rule to map /images/smilies/ to /jforum/images/smilies/ where they live.

I had this problem once. Everything seems to work, except no smilies. Here is what I did:

Login your forum as Admin, go to Control Panel, go to Configurations.

Make sure Forum URL is:

http://www.activityguidebook.com/forums/

and Website URL is:

http://www.activityguidebook.com/forums

i.e.: don't forget about the "context" part of the path, which is "forums" part (word) in the paths above.

still not working, ok maybe if there is a little more background on how I've set things up and why.

My server is used for a community of my friends and commercial projects for centralized writing. Generally for Pen and Paper gaming. For this reason I felt I want to keep my data physically at my home. Since it's not a public or commercially available website I have am using DynDns free service. Also my ISP blocks port 80, finally my router doesn't actually let me use internet address when I'm accessing my page on the LAN.

So to sum this up.
I either use redirect or IP that channels through a specified alternative port than 80. Neither sees smilies.
Access at home requires that I make link by the LAN address not the WAN address. So listing the URL and Forum address doesn't really help me a whole lot. Since either WAN or LAN will be broken.

Smilies did work as of 2.1.6. for both WAN and LAN, so whatever change was made, is inferior for network crossing.

Finally even if I do set the address to a local one, they still don't work over the LAN.

Took me a sec to get the gist of this thread. I took the trailing "/" off the end of the entry "forum.link=" in the jforum-custom.conf file and my smilies are now working just fine. Thanks for the info guys.
