XF 1.4 Smileys being rendered with old urls

    I've just moved smilies from being accessible at http://inc.example.com/smilies/ to being accessible at http://example.com/inc/smilies/ ... and eventually https://example.com/inc/smilies/

    Or so I thought.

    The files have been moved.

    forum.example.com/admin.php?smilies/ has images showing up with the new url.

    Creating a post shows smilies for selection with the new url.

    Viewing posts still shows up with the old url. I can't find anything on disk with grep, can't find anything in the database when I export it.

    Are they stored somewhere in the db in binary format? Is there some cache I can rebuild?

    I suspect it is browser caching.

    Try a forced clear of the cache.

    A reasonable suspicion, but I've F5'd, Ctrl+F5's, cleared browser cache & restarted, restarted the virtual machine it's on -

    If it's a cache, I'm pretty sure it isn't the browser's.

    I found a solution.

    My batch update of smilies had been a SQL query with a REPLACE().

    forum.example.com/admin.php?smilies/ had shown the expected images, but apparently had to do some further processing.

    Re-saving a single smilie correctly registered the change for all of them.

    It may have been useful to mention that in the original post.

    Alas, one more chance for google to help the next person.
