The problem is with the way Icons are loaded with (line 169-171): elsif ( $attr eq 'ICON' ) { return ''; }

This can be fixed by making the following change: elsif ( $attr eq 'ICON' ) { $file =~ m/\.([^.]*)$/; return ''; }

-- LucasNava - 14 Jan 2015

That was my first Comment. Didn't format it quite right. (line 169-171):
    elsif ( $attr eq 'ICON' ) {
        return '%ICON{"' . $file . '" default="else"}%';

Should be:

    elsif ( $attr eq 'ICON' ) {
        $file =~ m/\.([^.]*)$/;
        return '%ICON{"' . $1 . '" default="else"}%';

Confirming that this fix works fine. Thanks LucasNava.

This needs a little more digging to understand fully what's going on. Some filetypes get a correct icon in spite of the bug.

-- GeorgeClark - 14 Jan 2015

The fix works, but this isn't correct. I'm changing this to a documentation task, and we need to look at revisiting the ICON rendering in the 2.0 as there is a mixture of expansion paths, and it's applied inconsistently.

The filetype to icon mapping is done in Foswiki::Macros::ICON, not in Foswiki::Attach. The %ICON% macro is intended to be passed the full filename, and it falls back to an extension to icon mapping that is unfortunately not documented. Filetypes are mapped to icons via a hidden attachment: System/DocumentGraphics/_filetypes.txt.

See the IRC Log for the discussion where we figured out what was going on.

There is MimeIconPlugin that solves this issue, including the required mime type magic.
