I’ve made a few changes around here and I’m pleased to announce that I now have clickable smilies enabled for comments. After reading a few things about it, I realized that this functionality was intended from the beginning and all I had to do was put the same PHP call in my comments.php page.
I also upgraded to WP 2.02 a few days ago and it seems to be doing okay. I was a little worried about my plugins not working, but the only one that got fouled up was WP Grins, and that was only because the call to display them got overwritten. I couldn’t remember how to add it back, and the solution I found was actually way better than the one I was initially using.
With the first one I used, you had you open at least three different files and put the call to display them in each one. This seemed redundant to me since I knew I could just add the WP Grins call under the Quicktags call, wherever that might be. I found Podz’s guide to implementing WP Grins (scroll to the bottom) and it was exactly what I needed. Yay!
I also fiddled around with some things so now whenever I comment, I’ve got this nifty little star next to my name and my text is black instead of dark gray.
I’ve obviously been avoiding homework all day.
