A mildly irritating missing graphic. :)

Is it just me? But on every section where it shows the title of the threads, how many replies, etc. Whenver there's new posts to that thread there's supposed to be a little graphic just to the right of the thread title. Here, no matter what browser I have tried (3 of them), no matter what safety settings I turn on or off on anything, that little graphic is missing. This occurs in all the different themes too.

Its url is supposed to be:

http://chdk.setepontos.com/Themes/default/images/english-utf8/new.gif

I just can't see that sucker no matter what I do! And it leaves an icky hole at the end of every thread with new posts on it.

So, can anyone else see that image?  I'll embed it here again in the IMG tags, if you see it in the next line, then it means you can see it --- AND I CAN'T!!!  :'(

The image should appear between here ---><--- and here.

Nadda, nothing, zip, it looks like the 2 arrows are touching here but I put that URL inside of IMG tags between the arrows.

I don't get it and it's driving me nuts!  :blink:

Doesn't ANYONE else have this problem???

I've gone through every filter and thing on my system, and still I can't pull up that graphic.

I tried writing a filter for just this system, using Proxomitron, and replacing that INVISIBLE GRAPHIC string with this one http://chdk.setepontos.com/Themes/default/images/new_some.gif

But it still sends that DAMN http://chdk.setepontos.com/Themes/default/images/english-utf8/new.gif string that leaves a HOLE on EVERY PAGE that I view that calls it up.

This is getting REALLY FRUSTRATING.

It shows up (or I should say it FAILS to show up) on EVERY BROWSER I've used, and on EVERY SETTING on EVERY BROWSER I've TRIED.

Okay, I finally solved it on my end. By using a Proxomitron (spam)-filter.

I have Proxomitron search for the string:

http://chdk.setepontos.com/Themes/default/images/english-utf8/new.gif

And it replaces it with:

http://chdk.setepontos.com/Themes/default//images/english/new.gif


If any of you use Proxomitron as your main web-surfing filter (and you should, it's still the most effective one ever made, from over 10 years ago now, I've not seen one ad in all this time, corporations have been trying to squash its existence for a decade now), and you have this missing graphic problem ... Just create the following filter:

Under Edit Filters, click on Webpage

Click NEW.

Then title it something like CHDK Forum Graphic Fix

URL Match: chdk.setepontos.com

Byte Limit = 4096

Under search and replace:

Matching Expression
/english-utf8/new.gif

Replacement Text
/english/new.gif

Problem solved.
