The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

Configuration: Post Icons

The Post Icons page allows management of all post icons on your forum. On the post icons listing page, you can see the post icon itself and the name for the post icon. From here you can also add new post icons and manage existing post icons.

Configuration: Add Post Icon
The name to recognize the post icon by. It also is the "alt" element for the image.
Image Path 
The relative path (from the MyBB root) to the image to be set for this post icon. Images for post icons must be located in a relative position to the forum root.
Configuration: Add Multiple Post Icons
Configuration: Post Icons

First, you will be shown a page asking for the URL to the directory to be searched for the post icons. This directory must be located in a relative position to the forum root.

You will then be taken to a page showing all post icons in that directory that are not already added to your forum. You are shown the following details:

  • Image
  • Image URL
  • Suggested Name

From here, you can modify the following details:

If different than the suggested name, you can modify the name for each post icon found.
You can also select which post icons you would like to add to your forum. All are selected by default, but you can choose to not add post icons by deselecting the checkbox next to the corresponding post icon.

After checking all details to ensure they are correct, you can select "Save Post Icons" at the bottom of the page, submitting the form and adding the smilies to your forum.
