Feed Icons (Pictures) reset

I have 30 feeds in my app. Mostly voice podcasts; some text rss feeds. Somewhere along the way, while I was adding feeds and shuffling the display order, the feed images / icons / photos got messed up. Seems there was some sort of random assignment between the feed and the stored images. It looks really crappy. How can I reset the the images? Can I remove the items from a folder then refresh? Please help.

I have version 1.2.4061 on android 4.1.2. I use the old list display for doggcatcher.

First from the "Feeds" screen

First from the "Feeds" screen long press on the particular feed with the problem > scroll down & press "Force Update/Update Thumbnail" - If that doesn't resolve the problem>Long press on the feed again>Press "Feed Options">scroll down to "Custom Thumbnail File name" for the location of the feed icon - then use file manager to delete or move the jpg file - then open DC & repeat the force update feature.

Eric is aware of a problem with feeds without feed icon that DC replaces the icon with the wrong thumbnail & is working on a solution.

Another thing you can try is

Another thing you can try is going into the android settings / applications, find DC, then hit the 'clear cache' button. That'll purge all the downloaded thumbnails. You'll probably have to exit DC and restart it also.

Update

I all both of those.

Killed the app; cleared the cache. (several times)
Updated the icons.

Explored the storage and removed the thumbnail. Then removed every thumbnail for every feed (except the ".noimage" file (cant remember the exact name at the moment). Updated. Same problem.

Odd thing is, even after I removed every file, the thumbs were still there. Makes me wonder if there is more than one location for them. Either cached, or, stored somewhere else. Maybe on my phone's secondary storage card? After I removed the thumbnails & updated, I browsed and can not find the new jpgs. The reported location has to be misleading.

Let me know what else you need? If fixable great. But, if this is a know bug you are working on, that is fine. The feeds in question all do not have default icons, i believe. So, this probably falls under your known issue. Maybe we need a default icon?

Thanks for the help.

When DC was initially

When DC was initially installed on your device, a storage directory is created on the device storage (/storage/sdcard0/DoggCatcher/) if or when you pointed DC to the external storage (/storage/extSdCard/DoggCatcher) before moving the DC storage directory, another directory is created. Try deleting the icon files from the Podcastimages folder on the device storage for the effected feeds and see if that solves the problem.
