Advanced Emoticon Plugin

Enhance usability and eliminate the need for users to insert emoticons within square brackets with the 4 Roads Advanced Emoticon Support plugin for Telligent Community 7 upwards

The process of inserting emoticons into content within Telligent Community can be convoluted. Telligent requires the end user to place all emoticons in square brackets - [:)]. Once this has been done, it is replaced with code as an <IMG tag. 

Implications: 

  • Users rarely want to, or remember to put square brackets around text 
  • By replacing the emoticon with an IMG tag, the ability to copy and paste for future emoticons is disabled.

Our new plugin eliminates both these issues.  

    Enhancements: 
    • It removes the need for inserting square brackets
    • By using a <span tag and CSS to display the images, usability is greatly enhanced.
