WordPress Tango/GNOME Smilies

Been playing with Tango icons recently, so had the bright idea of swapping out most of the default WordPress smilies for luscious Tango and GNOME icon theme emotes:

… icky :arrow: awesome …

Much nicer! Cheesy and nasty, but I just copied the PNGs over the original GIFs in the bzr repository I use to manage our WordPress deployments. I really ought to write about that some time…

Update: Check out my awesome Tango/GNOME Smilies plugin for WordPress and WordPress MU. Rock on with your Tango on!

Update: Eventually I submitted this as a patch for core, and it was committed for inclusion in WordPress 2.9. Plus, the patch adds support for some bonus funky emotes that were available in the Tango/GNOME themes. Hooray!

  1. molgar, I did. You might want to shift-reload to dodge the cache hit on your end. :-)

    Trevor, they’re not scaled to 16×16. They are 16×16. Yay for Tango icons!

    Christoph, I couldn’t figure out a good one to use with the monkey. I like it too!
