I wish it were easy. We are working on it. Unfortunately, this software doesn't allow U to just upload them 1 by 1 easily. On VBulletin, I can add them 1 by 1 (on Handgun Forum). But, Php makes it harder.
We hope to eventually switch, but VBulletin costs $160.
Once we get the banner up we'll do this. We've tried to get the FTP to work for me, and I have had no luck. I have used FTP for years, so I know how. But everytime Therm resets me up, it won't let me log in. Otherwise, I would have done it a long time ago.
The easiest solution is just to pick new emoticons and upload them with the same file names as the old ones - that's the goal. It is quicker than installing new smiley packs. php makes it harder to add emoticons over Vbulletin (at handgun forum, I added new ones all the time w/o messing with FTP).
