The Honor Empire

I did a test upgrade of my 3.4 site to 4.0 (currently at 220.127.116.11) and found that the emoiticons from the previous site did not transfer to the /emoticons subfolder in /uploads. I manually copied the emoticons and they started showing up again when creating new posts. However, all old posts display the emoticon text and not the image. Is there a "refresh" tool someplace to parse the old posts for emoticon text and replace/update with the associated image?
Please go to your ACP Dashboard and look to see if background tasks are running. If they are running then please wait to do anything till they are completed, this will likely solve your issue.
No, it will not solve it. I'm about to submit a ticket for the same thing. I ran processes manually for 6 hours and finished everything, didn't work. Besides that, the amount of people reporting this issue is big.
I completed the upgrade last week. All of the background processes have ran (I setup a cron to run every minute over the weekend). Looks like a bug then..
Thanks for the info. We have a patch coming out shortly.
A set of 'default_*' images have been found in '/public_html/forums/uploads/' copy into '/public_html/forums/uploads/emoticons/' to fix the issue. Worked for me anyway.
Yes, that's what I did as well. However, all old forum posts are not displaying the emoticons. Only new posts. I think it has something to do with the URL mapping.
Example of an old post:
<img src="emoticons/default_smile.png" alt=":)">
Example of a new post:
<img src="http://devbox001/testsite/uploads/emoticons/default_smile.png" alt=":)" title=":)">
It appears the old posts need to have the URL's updated or somehow mapped to the new location.
Agreed, we'll have top wait for a patch from Invision I guess as the same problem here applies to old post images too.
