The default smileys images are stored in the
lib/images/smileys/ directory and configured in the
conf/smileys.conf file. Wiki admins can configure their own smileys, see below.
Instead of using .gif based pixel graphics DokuWiki versions since Igor 2022 release use SVG smileys based on the Twemoji project.
To add your own smileys, and make them upgrade-safe as well, you should follow these instructions instead of mixing them with the default-smileys from Dokuwiki-package:
- Create a new folder called
localinside the smileys-dir
and put the imagefiles into it (make sure the images are readable by the webserver). The default dokuwiki smileys are about 24 pixels tall.
- Create a custom smiley-config file at
and prefix each image filename with “
An example configuration file could look like this:
# Custom Smileys # Images are seen relatively from the smiley directory lib/images/smileys/ # TEXT_TO_REPLACE FILENAME_OF_IMAGE # :MYFACE: local/i_am_so_pretty.png # or eventually disable a smiley by mentioning the key, without image path. DELETEME
Notes and hints
- It is good practice to surround your own text macros with colons (“:”), like “
- Because it is reserved to mark a comment line, a hash (
#) needs to be escaped by a backslash (
\#). You can't use
$in the configuration file.
- Make sure to have a space before and after the smiley when adding to a wiki article (e.g. Test :NEW: smiley).
