Emotes not showing

Post by Curmudgeon »

The emotes do not show in menu panel or when used in a post, just the ascii.
This first occurred in a new install of 3.2.4, I patched to 3.2.5 & nothing changed.

Extensions & versions running
• Advanced BBCode Box - 3.2.1
• phpBB Media Embed PlugIn -1.0.2
• Recent Topics - 2.2.8
• VigLink - 1.0.4

What are you referring to when you say "emotes"? Are you meaning Smilies, Emojis or something else?

He means his smiley images are broken.
They were probably copied as text, instead of binary.

Your web server is returning 404 (file does not exist) for paths like http://mobtalk.org/board/images/smilies/icon_mad.gif that would have been established during a new 3.2.4 installation. First stop would be to check whether that subdirectory of the /images/ folder exists, and whether it contains the files you see it should have received from a 3.2.4 full package download/upload.

If the files are actually there with the expected names in that /images/smilies/ folder, another possibility is that the .htaccess has extra rules that are re-writing paths with .GIF extensions. Intended to solve some other problem, but introducing an unintentional issue here.

Thanks, I should have thought to check that.

Must have deleted them at some point in the process.

Fixed & working now.
