I downloaded a set of new emoticons to use on my blog, and rather than take the time to rename all the files (and save them all as GIFs) I went straight to uploading them in the wp-includes/images/smilies/ folder, and then editing the functions.php file in the wp-includes folder. I have done this before, with an earlier version of WordPress, so the process is familiar to me. However, now that I've changed the functions.php file my site is not displaying: it shows up as a blank page, as does my WP dashboard. I looked thoroughly over what I changed and cannot find any obvious problems, so I thought I could use some help.
Is there anything that can't be added into this file? All I did was edit the smiley array, such as:
'0:-)' => 'angel.png',
'0:)' => 'angel.png',
'>=(' => 'angry.png',
etc., though I kept the structure intact. Are there any characters that are now allowed, or some common error I am unaware of where this file is concerned? I haven't tried to change the smileys since I had WP 2.3; is there something else I have to do in WP 2.5.1?
Any help would be very appreciated: thanks! :)
