Incorrect Apple Touch Icons

Post by G-Force » Sat Feb 18, 2017 10:43 am

This issue was first reported here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=165036&start=100#p2482867

Touch icons are used as a site identifier when bookmarking the site on an iOS device and in the Apple Safari browser. Currently the code for touch icons is not pointing to the bogleheads logo (like in the upper left of the forum), but rather to a nonsensical apple logo.The URLs to these icons are as follows:

https://www.bogleheads.org/apple-touch-icon-152x152.png
https://www.bogleheads.org/apple-touch-icon.png
Maybe others?

Can we replace these apple logos with the appropriate bogleheads icon please? Should be a simple fix. Thanks.

Yes, please, replace the Apple logo with the Boglehead logo. As noted, the BH logo vanished with the firmware update.

I posted about this awhile ago an a separate thread but never received a response. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=211467

Can you fix the link to the touch icons so they reflect the boglehead log and not the apple logo? Thanks!
Sure, I replaced all the icons. If anything is missing please let me know.

Thanks to iconifier.net for generating the many icons needed for Apple support. They're generated from the wiki logo, which is 135px x 135px.

Try clearing cookies and browser history. Here's how: How to Clear History, Cache, and Cookies in Safari on iPhone or iPad

FYI - Clearing cookies will log you out of the forum.

Does anyone with an iPad or Macbook see the Bogleheads logo?

I see it on an ipad. I clicked on the old apple icon then created a new shortcut. Both the old and the new shortcut got the Bogleheads logo icon. Not sure if I needed to create the new shortcut or if clicking on the old one would have been enough.

I cleared browser history and cookies on three Apple devices.

IPhone now has the BH logo compass. But IPad and MacBook are still Apples, using Safari.

Thanks, Lady Geek!
