It looks as if a process is searching for the message icons in the wrong directory ("/forum" instead of "/forum/image"). Has this been reported and/or fixed in the newer versions?

Hey, I like the "synopsis" field for new Topics (v2.7.7), but it doesn't seem to appear anywhere inside the post. Only for the index?

These message icon errors are still cropping up. I checked the "post_common" templates in all of my themes, and the correct path is there. Is there another template I should be checking that accesses all of the post icons?

addendum: the path in my templates is {WWW-ROOT}/images/message_icons/

What files it cannot actually find?
Can you show me a few 404 messages from the log file?

It seems that it fails to find the entire series of message icons (yet when I make a post or send a PM, the message icons do appear). See my first post for the list, this is from my site error logs. (I added a couple of icons to the defaults).

Instead of checking {WWW-ROOT}/images/message_icons/ for the files, the failing process appears to somewhere just be checking {WWW-ROOT}/.

I did a search on the icon reference code and I cannot locate places where
images/message_icons/ are missing from the path in a template. Can you see which page has the invalid links?

The messages above are all I get. Nothing shows up in the forum's admin logs; only in the site's error log.

Something might have become trashed in one my templates, although I didn't make any changes that affected the message icons. Where else are are all the message icons called out, other than post_common? (We do not use path_info).

(I am planning to upgrade to the latest version, but I need to integrate my code changes and I have been waiting for RC2 before doing so).

The message icons appear in drawpmsg.tmpl, ppost.tmpl and post_common.tmpl

I believe I figured out what was happening with this. After I started playing with linux I was rummaging around looking for something, and discovered that there's a configuration setting you can use to specify a certain directory path to always look for icon files in.

The user in question had just switched over to using kubuntu when the error messages started showing up. So apparently, every time she brings up a post window, linux wants to find its icons in her default directory path, which isn't the correct path.

I wish I could remember the specifics of it now, and where I ran across the information, so I could tell her how to turn it off. At the time I was busy hunting for something else so I just noted it in passing.
