Emoticons and Smileys into Blogger

So if you like the way these emoticons are displayed you can easily add them inside your blogger comments check below steps.

  1. Open Blogger > Template > Edit HTML.
  2. Press Ctrl + F & search for </body> tag & paste below code above it.

    <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == "item"'><style type='text/css'>.emoWrap{position:relative;padding:10px;margin-bottom:7px;background:#fff;background-image:-ms-linear-gradient(right,#fff 0,#fff9f2 100%);background-image:-moz-linear-gradient(right,#fff 0,#fff9f2 100%);background-image:-o-linear-gradient(right,#fff 0,#fff9f2 100%);background-image:-webkit-gradient(linear,right top,left top,color-stop(0,#fff),color-stop(1,#fff9f2));background-image:-webkit-linear-gradient(right,#fff 0,#fff9f2 100%);background-image:linear-gradient(to left,#fff 0,#fff9f2 100%);border:1px solid #ccc;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px;border-radius:5px;box-shadow:0 4px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.1),0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);-moz-box-shadow:0 4px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.1),0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);-webkit-box-shadow:0 4px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.1),0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);box-shadow:0 2px 6px rgba(0,0,0,0.1),0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);font-weight:normal;color:#333}.emoWrap:after{content:"";position:absolute;bottom:-10px;left:10px;border-top:10px solid #ccc;border-right:20px solid transparent;width:0;height:0;line-height:0}</style> <script type='text/javascript'>
    jQuery(document).ready(function () {emoticonx({
    emoRange:"#comments p, div.emoWrap",
    topText:"Click to see the code!",
    emoMessage:"To insert emoticon you must added at least one space before the code."
    //]]></script><script src='http://goo.gl/mNMnWB' type='text/javascript'/></b:if>

  3. Now make sure you have Jquery present in your template, if not then just add below line above the </head> tag.

    <script src='https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.3/jquery.min.js' type='text/javascript'/>

  4. If you already have this line then skip the above step.
