What happened to user icons?


Did it, and it worked.


But what I can see is that suttabot lost their user icon… :cry:


Oh dear … well, I’ve had to replace him with R2D2 I’m afraid.


Let’s just see how he looks like: @suttabot, can you say something?

I’m still having a problem with my missing user icon (Chrome on Windows 10).

And on the smartphone (Chrome on Android), I can’t see some icons when expanding the :heart: button below some posts.


I can see your user icon. Did you already try clearing your browser cache?


The missing icons was a discourse software-problem and not something I could do much about apart from upgrading. But I think in this case indeed maybe clearing your cache (try on incognito window) or try changing the theme and see if that works.


I cleared my cache, tried an incognito window, restarted the computer, changed the theme… the icon is still missing.

Anyway, seems like I’m the only one with this bug, and I can live with the missing icons. No worries, just thought I’d mention it since it was an issue for many people in the last few days.


And just for completeness, I just tested on Firefox, and the icon is missing there too.


This sounds very bad. Why does this happen to Yodha? The Force is failing… :astonished:


Is this any better now?


Yes, the icon is back! :heart: :lightsaber: :yoda_sw:


Interesting cause my icon is still missing. Was your fix local to Yodha or global, Ven. @Vimala ?


Should be back now. If anybody else has this problem, please just go to your preferences and re-upload your picture and that should fix it.


I was able to recreate this on multiple browsers on mobile and also on desktop (multiple themes, multiple texts sizes, even when not logged in) with the exact same results:

Note that on desktop this is not immediately apparent, you need to scroll a bit to the right.

I’m guessing this banner was hacked a long time ago and is not playing nice with the rest of the site any more. Perhaps one of the newer theme components would work better?

I tested this one: Brand header theme component - theme - Discourse Meta online on and it offers the basic fuctionality (with a few additional CSS tweaks to hide the link and hamburger menu elements visible on mobile).


When I scroll to the right I can see it too:



I think I found it. Try this now.


Now there is no scrolling left and right any more on my screen (nor on the phone), so this looks good. Thank you! :anjal:


Hurrah! :anjal:
