Thumbnail icon when sharing


So I’ve had a custom theme (like the older method, not done via admin settings) for a while, and although I believe I’ve replaced all of the NC logo icons for logo, apple-touch, etc, etc, etc, when I share a link to a file, it still - basically a year later (so no cache) - shows the NC logo:

You’ll have to take my word for it the SVGs have been replaced as I can’t preview them:

I’ve gone through the source looking for it, but haven’t been able to locate it.

Any ideas?

NC: 11.0.3


I have just double checked (since I use the same “external” theme method) and for me it still works. My image file is:

/var/www/nextcloud/themes/[theme name]/core/img/favicon-fb.png


Oh interesting! Do you have one for the other social networks too?


This same file works for example with FaceBook, Skype and even here on this forum.

See the link below of a test file.


Hmm, doesn’t work for me at all as yet. We shall see if caches clear today…


hello im facing the same issue and i did replace all files yet it didnt update when i do the sharing


You have done the following:

  1. Create /var/www/nextcloud/themes/[theme name]/core/img/favicon-fb.png
  2. Clear cache with:
    a. APCu -> Restart Apache2
    b. Redis -> Run command redis-cli flushall


strange in mobile its get the update but when i share in web and give the link in skype or whatever chat it doesnt!


im not good in apache sorry :frowning:
