It saves the old database entries for smilies, so you have to copy them to the new path /images/smilies/xxxxxxxxx.gif. Once you copy them over from the old site, you don't have to do any database changes or modifications and they will show up with a refresh.

Yeah, I just got her email...I just wasn't sure if it was a problem with my computer (I use a mac, and sometimes Macs don't enjoy sites)...

don't I wish... they are all in that folder they are just not showing. I even tried the "add multiple" link in the ACP and they aren't showing there either.

This is completely stock right?

Looks like you have .htaccess setup to deny directory listings.

Make sure the absolute path is images/smilies/xxxxxxx.gif

If you are using redirection as I often do, then it might redirect from:

phpBB3/images/smilies/xxxxxxx.gif

to:

images/smilies/xxxxxxx.gif


You might need to include the /images directory in that redirection.

Ok... where do I do that?

(thank you sooooo much, you are saving me a few gray hairs)

under admin general, try server settings, then the script path, make sure it's set to /phpBB3


Alternatively under the same server settings page, if you want to leave the script path alone (not sure what other problems it will have) you can setup the individual directory paths in the section above that. Add /phpBB3 to the 4 paths at the top of that section.

I would recommend changing the script path though.

oh, it's mostly stock, but not completely, though I have not figured out why my styles and icons won't load. I'm a little toasted from the last day. I have a 6 hour drive ahead of me and I won't be doing anything for at least another day once I head out.

Also leave "Force server URL settings:" to No

What it does is force the server to redirect all request for /phpBB3 to /

IE:

With it on YES

The index page of http://www.pitbulltalk.com/phpBB3/index ... 2413243214

will automatically redirect and look to the user like

http://www.pitbulltalk.com

I don't use it because I use a combination of redirection and SEO mods instead. Basically it changes the name of the forum from forumdisplay?n=32 and the thread display names from showthread?p=12345 to http://www.pitbulltalk.com/off-topic/12 ... -title.php

Also if you're having trouble with getting style changes to load, you can do one of two things.

1) Admin/general page/Load settings then change Recompile stale style components to Yes

2) Refresh the style you are working on after every time you change/upload new templates/css
