The "lost" smilies now work and look just fine. The odd ones im afraid, or at least most of them, still look odd though(even after a ctrl+F5 update from server to renew everything(and i cant say i have ever before seen this sort of distortion on smilies)).
Edit: Hmm interesting, the smiley i included in the post looks better once posted than it does on the posting screen smiley selection area. Still a bit oddshaped, but at least the eyes became visible.
And the glitch, yeah i figured it was likely not something easily fixable. Its not a big deal, as either it gets posted or the post is saved or you get to preview it and just have to click submit again.
Ah, pity i was hoping it was simply added when you upgraded, as its far more convenient to use upload feature and i miss my cute little vampire.
Hmmm, well as long as the pictures are properly limited in filetype and size, proper renaming and storage placement there really shouldnt be any possible way to introduce either malicious code, open backdoors or create a buffer overflow using the function...
Oh well, i CAN imagine anyway...
As long as file renaming makes certain the pictures only get extensions that are not in any way seen as executables by the server, it should be fine.
The supposedly infamous .gif/php exploit for example simply wont work at all unless the file is allowed to be named something ending with .php AND the server software has htaccess mime type turned on AND the original uploader didnt bother checking the file for php-code(which i hope is standard by now)...
Anyway, just saying that image exploits is normally not a problem, as someone needs to do something specifically wrong on the receiving end for them to work. There may be some exploit out and about that i dont know about of course, but i doubt id miss such a security threat for long.
If you want to find out, you could simply try asking at just about any hacking forum(preferably from a computer using a very good firewall :mrgreen: (never seen anything malicious like this, but sometimes some peoples idea of a joke isnt the same as yours) ), people at such sites tend to be very helpful in general.
Hmm, wish i could, but i suck badly at anything beyond doing cut´n´paste.
