When previewed, I can see the play icon. The skipback still works.

You need to upload skipback.svg from the dist folder and then it will work

1 Answer

same issue here, I did try to upload the svg, even in to the same css folder (I've put the skipback css into the css folder), but it seems like it can't open the svg for some reason

UPDATE: hey so turns out (not that surprisingsly to be fair), that the rel attr. always has to have a predefined value, in this case: "stylesheet" which I (not sure why) decided to change for this element - if anyone ends up doing the same, just FYI
