New installation

  • Unzip into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory. If you’re uploading it make sure to upload the top-level folder. Don’t just upload all the php files and put them in “/wp-content/plugins/”.
  • Activate the plugin through the plugins menu in WordPress
  • Open comments.php and search for “<textarea”. Check the id of the HTML tag. It has to be “comment” (id=”comment”). This is WordPress standard.
  • Paste following PHP code in the line before “<textarea ...“: <?php if (function_exists('quicktagzmilies')) { quicktagzmilies(); } ?>
  • Save and upload comment.php. The quicktagbar should now appear in your comment area
  • Go to Quicktagzmilies options in your admin panel (Settings » Quicktagzmilies) to customize the plugin

Update from 1.0.1 to 2.0 (this version)

  • Download this plugin
  • Delete wp-content/plugins/quicktagzmilies/qtz.js.php, wp-content/plugins/quicktagzmilies/qtz-admin.php and wp-content/plugins/quicktagzmilies/qtz-functions.php
  • Upload the files quicktagzmilies/quicktagzmilies.php, quicktagzmilies/quicktagzmilies-admin.php and quicktagzmilies/quicktagzmilies-js.php to wp-content/plugins/quicktagzmilies/
  • Reload front- or backend and it should work

The quicktag bar is displayed in my commentarea, but when i click, nothing happens

  1. Check your header.php in your template folder. Search it for <?php wp_head(); ?>. If you can’t find this, just add <?php wp_head(); ?> before </head>
  2. Check your footer.php in your template folder. Search it for <?php wp_footer(); ?>. If you can’t find this, just add <?php wp_footer(); ?> before </body>
  3. If you have followed step 1 to 2 and still nothing happens when you click the quicktags, just write me an email.

Still huh?
