For some reason, this afternoon, my smilies took a hike. I haven’t touched my site all day, except to update some of the style sheets. Yet, WP would give me an error message that there was an undefined function in quicktags.php. It had to do with wp-grins.php. So I edited quicktags.php to delete any references to wp-grins.php. I also edited the comment box to delete any such references. Now the site behaves properly, it just doesn’t SMILE when it does so. ;-)
But what’s weird is it lets me use them in a post. It just doesn’t allow clickable smilies. Oh well. Those were more for you than me anyway. I hate the damn things. Those and blinkies.
