Icons for your Weblog

ETC.’s post Skinable smilies and icons links to some good quality freely available icons, including Skinable Icons and Skinable Smilies.

For Movable Type, using Brad Choate’s MTMacros plugin makes implementing them effortless. You can see this in action at Mark Pilgrim’s Comments section, for example.

  3. For some reason i am unable to download the icon sets. It’s as if the zip files don’t exist or have been moved. Anyone else have this problem?

  4. Hi, Josh,
    I tried downloading both sets this morning after reading your Comment, and I didn’t have any trouble downloading either of them. So you might try again—maybe the siteowner fixed the problem.

    Also, I’d suggest contacting the site owner directly if there’s a problem with his website, as I’m sure he’d want to know about something like that.

    Thanks, and good luck with those!
