[nodebb-plugin-emoji] Emoji Plugin

  • Was looking to use this as a temporary replacement for nodebb-plugin-emoji-extended, but it doesn't seem to be working with my 0.6.0 install. The 0.1.4-2 version was installed by the ACP and is activated (without errors) but the emoji simply don't show up in posts.

    Is this 0.6.0 compatible? Is it being maintained?

    not for awhile, since emoji-extended does such a great job superceding this plugin!

  • @Shaun, if you're using the Poll plugin as well, that could be the issue.

  • @Ted I am not. It's a little weird that this plugin just doesn't seem to do anything on 0.6.0, unless that's just me. Is this working for anyone else?

  • @Shaun, I'm running v0.4.0-3 of that plugin without issue. Perhaps try installing that and let me know if your issue persists. Feel free to reply in the emoji-extended topic rather than this one, and just mention my username - this way we're in the proper topic.

  • Oh, I thought you were talking about this version (non-extended). I got the extended edition to work by installing from NPM as you suggested in the other thread, so that works for me. If this (non-extended) version doesn't work, I think it would make sense to drop it from the ACP listing.

  • Does anyone use the non extended version of smileys? Seems rather redundant.

    @Shaun If only the extended version would show up in APC again xD

    @frissdiegurke Emoji extended ACP page doesn't work? I'd offer my services, but... you know... β˜•-script πŸ˜„

  • Seems ok to me.

  • NodeBB

    I think he means the ACP>Plugins list

  • @baris Oh, OK then. πŸ˜†

    @julian ya, it's as @baris wrote: emoji-extended doesn't show up in ACP > Plugins list when not installed because the package list doesn't contain it somehow πŸ˜‰

  • @frissdiegurke Doesn't npm install nodebb-plugin-emoji still work? Rather than going through the ACP.

    EDIT: Having said that, the plugin hasn't been updated in about 12 months, so the chances of it being compatible with 0.6.x is quite slim. πŸ˜†

    It does. But the way through ACP is of cause more simple for NodeBB novices. Btw, it's emoji-extended that we're talking about (within your code it's emoji), so lets stop talking here πŸ˜„ rather than here for any further questions.

  • @frissdiegurke Ah, Extended definitely works if you run the npm command. I'm running it without issue.

  • Hello guys,

    Sorry for the trouble but I'm afraid I'm having an issue with this Emoji Plugin for a while now.
    I thought the mistake was on my end but as soon as I update my Nodebb, I try to give it a go again in case a fresh update would help me figure out what's going wrong. But I'm not getting close to a solution yet.

    So as soon as I activate this plugin (v 2.2.5) I have issues with undefined characters in the composer.

    For instance, if someone types in c'est (French word) it will come out in the preview panel and once posted as c undefined est same for ... becoming undefined.

    As soon as I deactivate the plugin and restart nodebb this behaviour stops.
    Do you have an idea why this is happening?

    Make sure all you have enabled are emoji and the emoji pack. So for example:

    • nodebb-plugin-emoji, and
    • nodebb-plugin-emoji-android

    Make sure nodebb-plugin-emoji-extended is not activated!!

    @TaLoche I can't reproduce that issue. What version of the emoji plugin do you have?

    If you turn off the plugin settings in the ACP (ascii characters and native emoji) does it still happen?

    Can you copy the HTML of that post and paste it here?

  • Hi @julian and @PitaJ , thanks for your replies!

    I didn't know I had to install emoji-android, for example, as well.
    I thought that with only nodebb-plugin-emoji that was enough for me, since I only wanted to add custom emojis through the ACP and maybe later on create my own plugin emoji pack.

    So indeed if I add the emoji-android plugin the issue disappears. But the android pack has too many emojis, I only need the ones we've been using since 15 years. So I guess I'll have to take down all emoji plugins, set up mine then activated nodebb-plugin-emoji and my emoji pack to avoid those undefined mistakes.

    Would be great if later on we could only use nodebb-plugin-emoji and set up custom emojis from there without needing another emojis pack.
    And it would be also great to be able to add tabs there in order to sort out the custom emojis we are adding. But I know I'm asking for a lot.

    @julian I didn't have the nodebb-plugin-emoji-extended activated since I saw it wasn't supported anymore.

    @PitaJ I tried turning off both options in the ACP to see if it would change anything but it didn't unfortunately.
    As soon as I install the plugin, build assets in order to be able to see the Emoji options in the ACP and restart, I have this 'undefined' issue.
    For the html this is what I have for this post

    Last question, on the nodebb-plugin-emoji, in the ACP what's the difference between where we can add 'Custom Emoji' and the bottom option 'Custom Extensions'. Sorry, I don't get the difference, and I've been adding custom extensions, rebuilding, restarting, build assets again but nothing changes when I add something there.

    Sorry for being such a pain!
