Emotions Required

I’ve just finished off implementing Chris Toohey‘s emoticons article into the BlogSphere template. All I need now is some way of displaying the list of valid emoticons to the end users. Any suggestions ?

Oh and incase you want to try out the new emoticon support then I have implemented the following emoticons :

  • Update : I’ve taken on the challenge of showing the emoticons in the live preview and it is now active. I’ve also decided on a way to show the emoticons to the users, you can either type in the emoticons alt text or you can click ( in most browsers ) the emoticon and it will be appended to the current comments. Enjoy

      One thing I would say though – I would have the images on another page. If you’re running with 30+ emoticons (like I have today) that’s 30+ images you need to download even if you are using simple text only.
      I would use a pop-up selector, and then communicate back to the parent (the comment or blog).

      Other than that, beautiful!!!

      Don’t be jealous. Sure won’t you be able to copy the code once the template is released next week
