Add Yahoo emoticons in Orkut scraps

By | December 21, 2007

OrkutFew days after writing the post “Write Orkut scraps in Indian languages” using Greasemonkey script, Google has introduced that feature and now it is inbuilt in Orkut. Now, I will show you the way to embed Yahoo emoticons into your Orkut scraps. A little emoticon can express your feeling much better than words.


For this, we need, as usual, Firefox, GreaseMonkey extension for Firefox, and Yahoo Emoticons User Script.

Read my previous post about installing GreaseMonkey in Firefox. If you know how to install an extension in Firefox, just click here and install GreaseMonkey.  Restart the Firefox and click here to get the user script, which GreaseMonkey instantly recognizes and comes up with a window asking for confirmation. Click “Install” and you are done. Now go to your scrapbook and you will see Yahoo and MSN emoticons appearing below the scrap box. Whenever you need an emoticon to be attached to the scrap, just click on the appropriate icon and a link will be inserted into your scrap that turns into an emoticon when it is posted. Enjoy!!!

Yahoo Emoticons in Orkut Scrap

Update: December 7, 2010

Script is not working anymore on the new version of Orkut.  Sorry guys!

Update: May 30, 2008

Modified the script to work for orkut.co.in.

Update: July 17, 2009

PhotoBucket account was inactive and showing up “inactive msg blocks” in place of emoticons.  Moved all emoticons to ImageShack for better service.

Update: September 6, 2009

Orkut changed the scrap book path.  Modified the script to work with the new path.

    I haven’t used any code. I think i wrote first about that script. Just write unique content and you can see your blog appearing on top of search results.

    Thanks for taking time to comment!

      Search for big size emoticons, download them and upload to photobucket or imageshack. Once these emoticons are uploaded and you got the direct link, edit the script and modify the image URLs.

      If you are not able to do that, search for the emoticons you need and mail me the link, I will make the script for you 🙂

      There is no need to download anything. They are served from free image hosting sites.

      You need to have Firefox and then install Greasemonkey extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

      Click on the Greasemonkey extension at the bottom of the Firefox, so that it turns yellow indicating that the extension is active. Then, click on this script: https://www.naveen.info/wp-content/uploads/www.naveen.info.user.js

      It recognizes script and installs it. When you go to scrap book…you can see the Yahoo and MSN emoticons below the box to insert it in scraps.

      No, you cannot. Instead you can install in your system, make an image, host it on any free image-hosting service, and add it in your scraps.

      Thanks abhi for taking this to my attention. Orkut changed the scrap book path, which was making it not to work. Modified the script right now. Download the latest.

      Deleting the scripts from GreaseMonkey:: Right click on the GreaseMonkey icon in the status bar. Choose “Manage User Scripts.” Select the script in “Included pages” box and click on the “Remove” button on the right side.

      It seems that ImageShack’s servers are down. Will move icons to Google Picasa or Flickr and update the script this Sunday.

      Sometimes installing an add-on fails. Just save the plugin to desktop and then open it with Firefox. That will solve your problem.
