Replaces standard smilies with ones from a theme folder
SimpleSmileyReplace is a plugin that checks for the existence of a images/smilies/ folder in a theme. If that folder exists, WordPress uses the smiley files in that folder instead. The plugin assumes that the smilies have the usual filenames (icon_rolleyes.gif, etc).
It has no extra requirements and has been tested with modified versions of the twentyten, twentyeleven, and twentytwelve themes.
Feedback, positive or negative, is highly appreciated as this plugin is in an early stage. Emails or comments are welcome.
