I noticed since the most recent update of ArcGIS Online, the "Media Map" web application template no longer successfully displays custom point symbology. Symbols are converted to black dots.

Example:

https://www.arcgis.com/apps/Media/index.html?appid=29cdb2e613314bc987b857abd6e7c600

Symbols should appear like this:

https://www.arcgis.com/apps/StoryMapBasic/index.html?appid=5cc709cdfabf49d886bcf3e64343c481

This was not the case throughout all of 2019; the "Media Map" template had no issue displaying custom point symbology exactly how it appears in a web map. What gives?

Also, I've noticed other map panels within other AGOL templates (like the new ArcGIS StoryMaps) also fail to show custom point symbology correctly.

Hi Mark,

When I looked at the symbols in the examples that you provided I was seeing the same football icons being used. Is there a different symbol that I should be seeing in the StoryMap Basic example? Here is what I am seeing:

StoryMap Basic:

Thanks!

Looks like the Media Map template is now showing the symbols correctly - back-end magic must have occurred?

Great, thanks!
