Smilies are a graphic representation of certain facial expressions. They can be embedded in texts to reflect certain emotions or to clarify them.

Smilies can be sorted into categories, for example to group them thematically.

The smiley management can be found in the admin panel under Customization → Smilies → Smilies. There you can manage the existing smilies and create your own smilies if required.
