No favicons after uptate to 1.7.6

Postby mikeww » 03 Apr 2013, 21:58

After updating to 1.7.6 (via updater plugin) the favicons of all feeds and articles are lost. Instead the standard orange RSS icon is shown for all feeds and articles.
Is this a bug or am I missing something?

I checked the content of directory ICONS_DIR (defaults to "feed-icons") and it was empty after the update. Restoring its content from the backup makes the icons reappear.
Seems like the updater was a bit overeager and purged a directory that it should not touch.

icons missing here as well, but they were just missing, no rss icon. Used the update plugin, didn't run into any errors while upgrading, only issue I've seen since upgrading this morning. also fixed with a quick copy from the old backup.

Maybe you all should form a support group about never searching before posting.

It's always a matter of the right terms. I didn't guess to search for "upgrade" after an "update".
Now we have a plain new thread that will be found with the simple term "icon" and "update". Oh and even "uptate" :oops:

So according to viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1513#p6855 this issue should not occur with 1.7.7.

Searching Google lead me to this thread instead of the other one. Thanks to mikeww for the link.

Maybe everybody should give fox a break... This was his pet project (was is the key word) until Google crapped on everybody...
Chill out and get on the trunk version, that way the issues you are having may have already been addressed.
Look in the wiki... If you want a feature... Look in the wiki before posting.
There are plugins that many people have developed to take care of your needs.
Last resort, post in the forum and ask a question.
Not a question that has been asked a multitude of times.
I know that searching a forum is a bitch, sorry can't do anything about that.

That said... I get off my tiny tiny soap box....

Agreed, idoxlr8. Couldn't have said it better myself.
