Limiting the possible emoji set
Some communities will want to limit the possible reactions to just a few, rather than all possible emojis. Retort now supports this!
In order to use a limited emoji set, simply visit
admin/site_settings/category/plugins, and check the box which says 'Constrain the list of reactions to the list specified below'.
Then, enter the list of emojis you'd like to support, delimited by the '|' character.

Feel free to style elements underneath the
.retort-picker class in
Admin > Customize > HTML/CSS, if you need further customizations like emoji size, spacing, etc.
Limiting the number of reactions per post
There's an additional site setting, 'retort allow multiple reactions', which determines whether users can react to a single post multiple times or not. (It is enabled by default). If you only want users to be able to create one reaction per post (if you're using Retort as a voting system, for example), set this option to false.
Disabling retort for particular categories
The 'retort disabled categories' site setting allows disabling particular reacting in particular categories by name. These category names are case-insensitive.
For example, entering
staff|announcements into this field will disallow all users from reacting to topics in the categories name 'Staff' or 'Announcements'.
