FAQ

How to show stickers?

There are 3 ways to show stickers in your message window:

  1. Via SmileyAdd's "Custom smileys" – you need to enable it in FB account options, but it won't work very good:
    • it works only for single conversations
    • it works only for incoming messages
    • it works only occasionally – somehow it just won't show anything, I'm not sure why.
    • it works only on newly received messages, it usually won't show historical stickers for history messages (after Miranda restart).
    It's bad because of how it is implemented in SmileyAdd. Could be improved in future, but it must be done on SmileyAdd's side.
  2. Via IEView:
    • you need to use (or create) IEView template that has javascript code for transforming URLs to images/thumbnails (here)
      • as image URL is also shown in sticker message, you don't need some special template to work with stickers, as templates usually transform all URLs to image thumbnails (but of course you can use special code only for stickers)
    • this won't work in group chats, because IEView is not supported there.
  3. Via custom smiley pack
    • you need to prepare own smiley pack:
      • define [[sticker:123456789]] as smiley string (with different numeric IDs) and attach wanted image (manually download it)
    • you will see only stickers defined in your smiley pack (but as classic smileys = will work all the time)
    • you can also send stickers (by sending the above mentioned string as whole message – without other text).
