I seem to have broken my topic images... Bugs

I am troubled that I can't seem to google up a solution for myself, since this is probably a newbie question. I have been going through the new admin guide and learning about scoop, but somewhere along the line I seem to have broken my topic images. However topics in general seem to be funtioning and show up in the Story Listm and the Topics section (w/ the proper icons) in the admin menu.

Just to make sure I am not overlooking something simple, he is a list of pertient vars and stuff that I have checked and seem to be set correctly:

  • var use_topic set to 1
  • var topics is set to /topics
  • Display Prefs:Show topic images with stories? Yes
  • I have added several topics but none of them seem to display, not even the original scoop.jpg

I have tried to track down the problem through the blocks. The frontpage calls the block CONTENT that seems to be a special magic block from my research. I found the section content under blocks that has story_summary, which seems to call something called topic_img to display the topic. I tried changing that to topic_text to no avail.

I have a site that works generates this HTML for the image:

A HREF="/?op=search&topic=scoop" IMG SRC="/images/topics/scoop.jpg" WIDTH="80" HEIGHT="50" ALT="Scoop" ALIGN="right" BORDER=0

Please forgive me if this is stupid.

Status Update, still busted....sorta. (none / 0) (#1)

I am not sure what triggered it, but I have been able to reproduce it.  All the anonymous heros do not see the topic images now.  Additionally,
new members have to do the "disable use_topics, refresh frontpage, enable use_topics, refresh frontpage" in their display prefs for any of the icons to show up.  After this workaround is done though it works great.  Any ideas?

This is what I got from |SCOOP_VERSION| "scoop-1_0-dev"

Could be a great with this (none / 0) (#2)

I do not think so scoop version can solve this problem. The broken images need some correct coding system in the file which will be responsible for reading the content. The could be a great place for learning some tips to use the scoop version and correct all the errors regarding broken images.
