Problem adding custom emojis

We use custom emojis. Some of them are bigger than standard. We use the following CSS hack to display it nicely:

    /* Emoji Style */
    body img.emoji[title^=":_"] {
        width: initial !important;
        height: initial !important;

This one, as example: (named :_bigboss:)

Since Beta 10 or 11 (we are on latest: v1.7.0.beta11 +38) adding new oversized emoji, generates this error:

    /var/www/discourse/app/models/optimized_image.rb:110:in `block in ensure_safe_paths!'
    /var/www/discourse/app/models/optimized_image.rb:109:in `each'

Other emjoi we added before, are still working without any problems.

What’s the name of the file you’re uploading? If it has “:” in it, just remove them.

The name of the file is “_bigboss.gif” - as you can see in the second last line of the backtrace.log
The error also occurs if I name it “bigboss.gif” or if I try any other oversized emoji.

I just uploaded the emoji just fine here :_bigboss: (removed the emoji)

Yes the upload works. Now wait a few Minutes and have a look at your /logs

I can also use it, but getting a lot of errors in the log is not good :slight_smile:

This broke on last security patch.

The job is being queued with a relative path.

What do you think about this @zogstrip : FIX: Use full path for emoji resize job by xfalcox · Pull Request #4633 · discourse/discourse · GitHub ?


Ok, I did not understand that.

Looks good to me :thumbsup:


The issue is completely solved. Thanks again, you guys are awesome!
