Please forgive my newbie question but can .htaccess files be used with NodeBB?
I usually enable them via Apache and then place one in my project's root directory but I have no idea where that is with reference to NodeBB.
Nothing worse than spending hours upgrading only to spend hours afterwards because your favicon has been replaced.
I have literally deleted the favicon from the file system and something still shows up. No matter what I do, the BB icon still persists.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Oh, not this again. Turns out it's just cosmetic, I think the page loads the right thing.
My forum in installed in a subdirectory under
Although,. not sure why this messes with the favicon.
A reboot seemed to help. Though, I'm still not sure why it shows the 16x16 icon instead of the nice Progressive Web icon
I think this happens because the serve-favicon dependency caches the icon so a rebuild&restart is necessary to see the new icon.
I am not sure about the touch icons https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/blob/master/src/meta/tags.js#L78-L140 since they don't see to be using the cache buster so it might take a while for those to update.
@baris Yeah my browser tab icon looks really chunky right now.
Aside: Stay tuned for one and possibly numerous bugs related to my forum being in a subdirectory.
It could also be due to the tinycon dependency see here
