Topic: Smiley problem
Hi.... You might have seen this problem before..
My smileys contain characters like ] > and < and this seems to mess up the smilies by putting an "> -string right after the smiley-icon for some of the smileys, but not necessarliy those which contain these symbols. After a lot of experimenting I've located the source of the error (I think) to the ALT-attribute in the IMAGE-tag for the smiley icons. It seems like the ALT-attribute is truncated at the first dbl-quote character and thus autumatically tries to complete the string with "> which is then unfortunately displayed in those posts.
By removing the $smiley_text[$i] part in the ALT-attribute the problem ceased to haunt me. I change was made in the file parser.php at line 284 for me, but it ought to be about 10 rows (or so) higher up for most people. It is inside the do_smileys($message) -function.
So... could this give rise to any problems as a result of this change?
If so... is there any other means to get rid of this annoying problem?
However, many were excited and some may have enjoyed the experience.
