Emoticons in signatures

Recommended Posts

Because I think we last talked about this on the old preview board, I'll revive the discussion here.

Why, oh why, can we not use emoticons in signatures? All that has to be done to re-enable this feature is toggle a couple of flags that stop them from working, and after that they work just fine. No additional queries are added to the page when viewing these signatures. I think it's more of a legacy issue that they did cause problems in the past.

Last I recall IPS was going to look into this, but I don't think anything was ever finalized about it.

+1 :)

I have wondered about this too, (typically I just copy and insert the emoticon image URL as I like to have one in my signature)

Having the emoticon pop-up available in the edit signature would be nice :cool:

I'd like to bring this topic back around again, is there any reason why we cannot have emoticons in signatures? Or why it is not currently supported in the current version of IP Board?

I use this after each upgrade to bring them into signatures: http://community.invisionpower.com/topic/342099-emoticons-in-signature

IMHO they should already be enabled by default. It's just silly to disable a common posting feature from signatures. If you can use images in signatures, you should be able to use smilies.

Thanks for the information. I still don't want this to fall off the radar again. It was brought up in 2009 and even then no one really knew why it wasn't supported. So emoticons in signature by default please :)

Just wanted to add to the request to also allow emoticons to be displayed on about me (profile) pages. I still do not quite understand why it is necessary to prohibit emoticons in signatures/about me pages.

Will we ever have emoticons in signatures without hacking it in?




Probably not, not now that I'm no longer with IPS :sad:

I will never understand IPS' reluctance over allowing admin's the ability to enable emoticons in sigs/about me without doing code edits.

It is possibe to re-enable this in the signature settings, but the process is quite long unless you want me to post a long tutorial that would take days to approve i think.

Is there something wrong with this? Was it never implemented? Would love some help in getting this to work. I've tried everything that I know.

Hey guys, I opened a support ticket about this and Mark replied it is a bug and reported it here: http://community.inv...gnatures-r38652

The bug has been confirmed by Andy so I guess we can expect this feature to start working in one of the next releases. :smile:

Thanks goes to Lucy Heartfilia for pointing out the blog post mentioning this feature. :thumbsup:
