Emoticon filter

Emoticon filter

You can set up emoticon filter to automatically replace emoticons with emoji.

The emoticon filter automatically detects ASCII emoticons in texts and replaces them with a relevant emoji when a text is typed or pasted into the content editor. The filter allows you to limit the replacements to certain parts of the content and to change the images for available emoji.

The filter settings apply to the selected space; its child spaces inherit the settings by default. You can override the defaults for a space (and its descendants) by setting up the filter for this space.

Emoji Images

Jive replaces emoticons with the images from the folder specified in the emoticon filter. Emoji image folder contains a separate image for every available emoji. Images must be in .png format, the recommended size is 16x16 pixels.

The default emoji set includes the following images: angry.png, blush.png, confused.png, cool.png, cry.png, devil.png, grin.png, happy.png, laugh.png, love.png, mischief.png, plain.png, sad.png, shocked.png, silly.png, wink.png, info.png, alert.png, plus.png, minus.png, check.png, x.png.
