pdf icons on published page multiplying – how do I stop this?

  • Author

    Every time I insert a pdf file into a page it stars off with just a text link. Then every time I reload the page (I think this is the trigger) I see more and more pdf icons alongside the link. I have tried this in different browsers.

    Is this something actually on the page or do I need to clear my cache to make them go away? Is there a way to insert links to uploaded media to stop this happening?

    eg. http://ukes4fun.org.uk/songsheets/

    If you can’t see them then I guess it must be to do with my cache but would still like to know if there is anything I can do to avoid this effect.

    Many thanks,

    I’m seeing this in the code. This means there are actually three favicon.ico images in your post.

    <img src="http://docs.google.com/favicon.ico" alt="" /><img src="http://docs.google.com/favicon.ico" alt="" /><img src="http://docs.google.com/favicon.ico" alt="" />

    You should be able to delete 2 of them and save it.

    If it keeps happening, could you describe the exact steps you used to enter this image into your post, and how they are duplicated?

    – How did you insert the image? From the media uploader Image URL?
    – Did you reload the edit post page after you save it? Or did you reload the published page?
