Upgrade to 1.6.0.beta12 resulted in emoji showing as <img> tags in polls


(Barry van Oudtshoorn) #1

As you can see in this image:

the :frowning: emoji has been replaced by the HTML <img> tag in its raw form. Interestingly, when viewing the results, all appears as it should.

Is the new poll UI maybe constructing its elements using innerText?

For you to look at @tgxworld

Has it been fixed?

Looks like I’m already on latest…? How often will my Discourse instance poll (ha!) for a new release?

From the code it looks like it checks everytime you load the page.

Let me know if the polls image is still an issue for you? :slight_smile:

I think I must be missing something – my /admin page says that I have v1.6.0.beta12 +55 installed and that it’s the latest. :slight_smile:

That is indeed the latest beta, but there are commits that you can still pick up by manually going to /admin/upgrade and having it upgrade (hence the +55 – you have 55 commits in additional to beta12)

Thanks @cpradio. Got those commits from /admin/upgrade and it looks like @tgxworld’s fix has come through! :smiley:
