Custom Smilies ? This might be handy

My Smilies guide now shows how you use wp-config.php to define them rather than vars.php – which means overwriting the file during an upgrade just became trickier as everyone knows that you never touch wp-config.php
If you have custom smilies, download vars.php then copy/paste the whole array into the new location and all should be good.

  1. Mark,
    I’m a bit confused by the wording in your post. If I understand what you are saying, the smilies stuff can be moved FROM vars.php and INTO wp-config.php, right? Now, if I have that part correct, then wouldn’t that make upgrading easier rather than trickier, given that vars.php may change while generally wp-config.php is almost never touched after the initial installation.

    /me is confused! :P
