    ZxChat Smilies / Emoticons in Pidgin

    Hi folks

    We're using ZxChat in Zimbra. Some users use the web client, but some users connect using Pidgin.

    We've found that some smilies sent from the web client don't display properly in Pidgin - for instance :smile: just shows as the text.

    Is there a plugin I can install in Pidgin to get these to display properly?

    Thanks

    Al

    Hello Al,
    welcome to the forums!

    ZeXtras Chat uses the EmojiOne set of smilies, and after a quick search on the web found and tried this smiley set from GitHub: installation is extremely easy and it seems to be working pretty well, albeit I didn't try all the different icons

    Have a nice day,

    Thanks Cine - that works great.

    The only issue for me is that it contains so many icons. When I click the smile button, the window that opens is huge. I'll probably edit the theme a little and trim out some of the icons that I don't need.

    I have another question on a different subject, so I'll start a new thread.

    I'm having trouble displaying the emoticons even on the web client. The chat log/history displays them fine but not the chat windows.
    I see the :smile: text instead of the icon in the web client. We've just installed Zextras 2.0.0 with ZXChat 1.27.

    Regards,

    Dennis
