I tried to insert a new similey into my forum

for the raised eyebrow smiley, but what ends up happening in the posts is it still displays the smiley just like: /

It's also true for any other smilies where another smiliey is included as part of the larger smiliey.

As another example,

wont work either.

ps: heh looks like something might be broke with the code tag too.. That shouldn't be a smiley in there

Well, that happens because you already have a smilie with the code " ". As " / " has almost the same sequence of chars, you will in fact get problems with them, as JForum process the text in the order the smilies were added to the system.

So, to workaround it, you will have to create a different code. There isn't much I can do about.

About the smilies in the the code tag: I remove the basic ones, but jus a small portion. To remove all smilies would require a considerably usage of system resources for *each* message. But if you have any suggestion, let me know

Maybe as a solution to the first problem, could they be sorted and parsed in order of size instead of order they were added? Alternatively, could their ordering be changed through the UI?

It will not be a real solution, but just an ugly workaround, that gets very very hard to manage as your number of smilies grow.

Anyway, if you want to, you could delete the smilie, add the new one and then re-add
