I see the site icons are displaying wrongly in the Site switcher, inbox and achievements of the Area 51 main site.

I thought it is due to the cache, so pressed Ctrl + F5 but still the same issue. When navigate to Area 51 Meta, there I can see the new top bar and the icons are fine.

Wrong site icons in Area 51

    Area51 runs on a different code base, whatever fix done on the other bug report should be deployed there as well. :) Oct 13, 2017 at 7:16
  • @ShadowWizard In this case, the issue is with the CDN caching the topbar styles. It works the same on se.com and Area 51, so the same fix should apply.

  • @Adam so what went wrong? Oct 13, 2017 at 15:50
  • @Arulkumar Try Ctrl+F5 now?

    @ShadowWizard Probably the same thing that goes wrong when this breaks. There's some sort of race in CDN cache when we do a prod build, and it's possible for a wrong old version to get cached for some nodes but not others. Super fun.

  • @AdamLear As I mentioned in the post, when I reported the issue, I tried with Ctrl + F5 but that not solved the issue. Anyway now it is not repro.

  • @Arulkumar Yes, because we purged the cache on our end. :)
