This is a test section of my forum, you will have to register to disable the smileys. (VB3 Version, but identical code.)

Version 2.0

*Bug Fixed - Smileys now fixed for guest viewing *

The main point of this mod is to add the much needed option IMO to disable simleys (smilies) for users like they can images, avatars, and signatures.

This became an issue on my forum because I have some large animated smileys and a new member had a medical condition where it was dangerous for him to view such images.

This mod will allow you to disable smileys for certain users. You can choose from the following:
1) (Preferred Method) Add a custom profile field to allow users to enable or disable this on their own. Instructions included in the zip file on how to do this.

2) Disable by usergroup, You can disable smileys by entering the usergroup id, both primary or secondary groups will work.

3) Disable for specific users- You can enter specific userids to disable for a select few users of your choice.

Disabled smileys will be replaced by their title or name. Such as becomes {EEK!}.

Limitations of the mod:

For this to work all your smileys must be in the default path which is images/smilies. They can also be in the fuller path /forums/images/smilies. If they are stored anywhere else this mod will not disable them.

Also the "title" or the "name" of the smileys can not contain a double quote (") character. Names/titles are limited to numbers, letters, underscores, dashes, and some other special characters all of which are listed in the instructions. (Some of them are !, @, #, $, %, &, *, <, >, etc...)

I doubt this will work with Non-English characters but I haven't tried it.

In addition to disabling smileys this mod can also disable images you deem annoying... Again for me I used this to disable some fast-flashing images popular on my forum but which could cause medical concern for some users.

In order to use this part of the mod you must view the HTML source code of your forum and copy the entire <img> tag responsible for the image, and paste it into the mod. The complete tag from < to > is needed. You paste 1 per line into the box in the settings.

You must also specify replacement text in the next box. 1 replacement for each image you want to disable. Keep these lines to match the images above.

This second half of the mod is basically just the built in "Replacement Variable" option in vBulletin except it works on all styles and only works on users you specify or whom have enabled the option. You can use it to replace anything you want, not just images if you want to.

BirdOPrey5, just wondering if you plan on expanding on this modification? Perhaps a per user option, where users themselves could elect to ignore photos all together (globally) or from a particular user?

Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my reply

Users can already disable images globally already in the user cp.

Per user image ignore is interesting but truthfully I doubt I will be adding it to this mod.

With so many setting within vBulletin, I often forget what is already there.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question BirdOPrey5

I searched for exactly this, thank you!
After reading your instructions I added a profile field, installed this addon, enabled it for the additional profile field, but it does not work.
If I enter a user-id to disable smilies it works perfect.
I don't know what I've done wrong with the profile-field.
My VB is version 4.1.9.

What happens to the smiley for people using this mod? Does it revert to the text based format?

It replaces the image with the name/title of the smiley inside curly brackets...

So... :happy: might become {Happy Face} if "Happy Face" was the title of the smilie.
