Genesis Favicon Uploader
[resolved] genesis favicon uploader - unable to upload favicon.ico (7 posts)

    I'm running a multisite network on WP 3.1 with Genesis 1.5 and various Child Themes. I tried to upload a favicon using this plugin & got the error message:

    Currently at this time only file type supported are .ico

    As the file is already a valid favicon.ico I'm not sure what is causing this error.

    I also added ico to the list of Upload file types in Network Admin settings, but the error still appears.

    Cubcolour, you don't happen to still have that favicon file by chance do you? I set up 3.1 with G1.5 and was able to upload a .ico fine.

    The favicon I tried was a copy of the one on my o5b.co.uk site at http://www.o5b.co.uk/favicon.ico

    I am rebuilding that site on a multisite install of WP using Genesis with a customised version of the Prose theme.

    I've just tried uploading the ico again and got the msg:
    Currently at this time only file type supported are .ico.

    I also tried a few other favicon.ico files from other sites I created, plus the default one supplied with the genesis theme and got the same error.

    Hm, I wonder if its a server/permission issue. I am working on an update currently for the next coming week ( hopefully ). I'll try to see if I can recreate this and if not at least set up some better error handling so we may know exactly whats going on.

    I just wanted to check in to see if there was any workaround since it's still not working.

    This was an issue with the way I was detecting the file type. On some server configuration it will fail due to an additional '.' in the file directory string. I have improved the file detection method in the latest version and this should no longer be an issue. I apologize for anyone who was having issues.
