Custom Message icon not visible

I add a new icon 18x18 camera.png in /themes/default/images/post. I can set this new icon with a new entry Video in the menu and i can choose this Message Icon when i write a post... but after the post is submited the icon is not display in my replie ! All the others icons works fine but there are all the default icons.

Not sure I understand well, the icon is visible when you start a new topic but not on replies? Could be a bug, I'll try to replicate this on a test forum.

I'd say it's a bug and here is what I noticed: 
- I created a new custom icon called mobile (I used a copy of one existing image file renaming it to mobile.png)
X
- when opening a new topic or posting a reply you can choose the custom icon from dropdown but it is not displayed in topic view. If you try to edit the post using the complete editor (More -> Edit) you will get the same result, custom icon displayed in editor but not visible in topic view
X X
- strange is if I use the Quick Edit option I see the default icon instead of my custom icon. Changing the icon from Quick edit works and icon is visible after edit.

sorry for my bad english

This appears to be caused by MessageTopicIcons.class.php not loading in the custom icons, it only loads in the known default ones.  I have a fix proposal that I'll place on github for review.

Hi Spuds,
Thank you to try to solve this bug.
I don't understand what to do with the files in github ! I must just take these files and replace the same on a test forum ?

If you want to test, you would take this version of MessageTopicIcons.class.php and replace sources/subs/MessageTopicIcons.class.php

You would then have to edit the file sources/subs/TopicUtil.class.php

Code: (find) [Select]
		$icon_sources = new MessageTopicIcons(!empty($modSettings['messageIconChecks_enable']), $settings['theme_dir']);
Code: (replace) [Select]
		$icon_sources = new MessageTopicIcons(!empty($modSettings['messageIconChecks_enable']), $settings['theme_dir'], $topics_info);

But not this is just a proposal at this point, there may be a better fix ;)

This issue should be tracked so hopefully it can be fixed before 1.1.4 is released.

What I did fixed the icon not displaying correctly in the topic listing.   Unfortunately is a different error than the one being discussed here!

I've been looking into the error discussed above, and while doing that, I've found yet another issue with them!  Hope to have a proper fix for all of these issues soon.

Use this file and replace sources/subs/MessageTopicIcons.class.php

That should fix one more of the issues ...

Hi,
i'm back with the same problem !
I just installed the 1.1.7 package from 1.1.6 and the problem with the icon come back.
I had an error on the MessageTopicIcons.class.php to update to 1.1.7 and just now i understand it is because i changed the file to resolve an another problem !
Maybe is it possible to fix this bug in the 1.1.7 package ?
I let the bug like this for now.

I'll have to get into my wayback machine and see what I fixed the first time !

Could you describe what you are doing so I can fix this properly?  I made some 1.1.7 changes so that the default message icons now use SVG images, and only if you enable custom message icons will you see the non default ones.  Disabling custom message icons should also prevent former custom ones from showing.

3 years ago to solve this problem i just replaced the file by yours.
Is it what you need ?
