How can I add emoticons?

Cbox supports custom emoticons. You can add and delete emoticons at this page in your control panel.

You can control the size and other layout properties of emoticon images using CSS.

To add a new emoticon, simply click the Upload button and then select the image file, either from your device, or by pasting in a URL. Formats supported are GIF (including animated GIF), JPG, and PNG.

Each emoticon needs a shortcut code, so that users can simply type the code to insert the emoticon. This code can be anything you like, but it's recommended to use a common prefix/suffix to avoid conflicts with ordinary words in conversation. For example, :hello: will not conflict with "hello world". After clicking Save, your new emoticon(s) will be available immediately in your Cbox.
