Question2Answer Smilies 1.0b


This is a plugin for Question2Answer that provides smilies.


  • 92 smiley types
  • almost all have both animated (gif) and static (png) versions
  • select static or animated version in admin panel
  • optional editor button via admin panel


  1. Install Question2Answer
  2. Get the source code for this plugin from github, either using git, or downloading directly:
    • To download using git, install git and then type git clone git:// smilies at the command prompt (on Linux, Windows is a bit different)
    • To download directly, go to the project page and click Download
  3. navigate to your site, go to Admin -> Plugins on your q2a install and select the 'Enable smiley embedding' option, then 'Save'.


This is beta code. It is probably okay for production environments, but may not work exactly as expected. Refunds will not be given. If it breaks, you get to keep both parts.


All code herein is Copylefted. Smilies copyright Skype, Inc.
