Two problems -- PNG's, missing admin form submit

One problem I've had for a while: Geeklog seems to be looking for a lot of .gif icons when the files are actually .png's. Most of the solutions I've found for this seem to be centered around replacing the icons with GIFs, but it seems like it should be easier simply to change the code to look for the .png's. Problem being I can't seem to find where. The various admin pages are particularly bad about this.

Another problem arose when I upgraded from 1.4.1 to 1.5.1: the admin page seems to be missing its form submit button! When I go to approve new users, for example, I have a trash icon for deleting checked items -- but no way to approve new users.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Both sound like theme issues. Did you update your theme?

The theme should set a variable $_IMAGE_TYPE to the image type it's using (in the theme's functions.php). If that variable is not set, Geeklog will assume GIF images.

bye, Dirk

Just as they described, I needed to update my functions.php file in my theme, and specify the image format. Did that and both problems disappeared.
