Smilies, do we get them?
I'm sorry but this is one of our paid addons. It'll not be integrated with free wpForo plugin. wpForo Emoticons addons will be available as a separate plugin in gVectors Store once the Stable 1.0.0 wpForo version is released.
I was confused by the above statement. I understand that if people type : ) etc they will get the relevant emoji, my question referred to the fact that 1 year ago you said you were creating an addon as an emoji selector.
Sorry for the confusion.
This was removed from out to-do list because of many other requests from our users. We've almost done and in near future can continue work on this addon again. It'll be available soon for sure. No an exact ETA yet.
