Just a heads-up, bumped the PHP version on the server up several steps, with any luck I managed to do all the necessary changes so it'll work without issues. If you find something not working right, drop me a line.

The only difference anyone should notice is that it might be a fraction speedier :party:

First of all thank you so much for providing this service freely without any ads as non-profit.

I have a little request. Could you please add "TWim" to TWim 's title?

This is because I want to reach your website with writing TWim in my browser's titlebar. In current situation I need to write TaleWorlds im... to see your site suggested by my browser.

(BTW, I have bookmarked your site of course but, my bookmark bar is already full and no space for twim to appear, so writing is easier than finding bookmark itself.)

TWim is great, however since from last year( or around that time) I guess there is an issue with uuid. I know that uploads are based on uuid that stored in cookies and if you delete your cookies you lost your history. But currently, it is not recognized after upload. Meaning: When I upload something, it's getting uploaded without any issue, and then when I refresh the page, I'm not seeing that upload anymore - however, it's still uploaded and visible if I use the image link.

I did a test with a small image and listened the network, it appears that it's using the same uuid. So I'm not sure why it's happening. I also removed the cookies and did a fresh test. Same issue.

Is this happening for everyone or just for my browser? I also disabled all plugins for that page.

It happened a month or so to me, and litteraly couple of days ago i had problems posting images from TWim, but today i cant even see images others posted, that used greywool. I see all the other images from the sites that aren`t greywool.....|

The strangest thing is, on my phone i can see everything, so it must be the browser....

I'm not sure about this. I just did a test with my phone, same issue. Simply upload something and refresh page. Are you able to see it?

Nope, still not, i deleted the cookies and now history is clear, but when i upload and refresh, cant see it anymore. Seems like i can see on the forums only images uploaded on greywool up until certain date, after that i just get that small "image not shown" icon instead.

Vaguely educated guess is that whatever browser you're using doesn't allow showing images hosted on http when the page itself is loaded under https. Or possibly browser extensions doing it. I'll look into getting quote-unquote "secure" connections to TWim with Let's Encrypt!

Though if/when that gets going, it would require all the twim links to be changed from http to https all around the boards. Or you could change browser settings to something more sane. That is presuming you're allowed to change how your browser behaves.

Quick-edit: It seems to have applied already.

Piconi: Can you see one or both of these?

Turns out fixing this **** will take more effort than a drunken J can sort in an evening. Will have another look into it tomorrow.

I mean, links to https on any image should work, I just need to figure out how to make all the links within TWim to link to https. You would like to think it's simple, but it turns out to be to not to be!

Actually this is not the problem. We are seeing the images in any condition after upload ( at least I do )

I think it's better for me to give you flow for more clarity:
1 - Find a cool cat image
2 - Go to https://tw.greywool.com/i/
3 - Upload the image with Upload Button
4 - Everything is fine. It's uploaded. You are seeing tiny thumbnail and copy links etc in the page.
5 - Copy the link, share it with friends and cats. Check it on your own. Everything is fine. The browser loads your cool cat image in any condition. Even though tw.greywool doesn't have a certificate, it's still forwarding images to HTTPS whenever it can. And HTTPS images work fine as well.
6 - You are happy, you want to share more cat images but you wanted to take a look into your other cool cat images that you uploaded yesterday.
7 - Now this part is the problematic part. Because you are not seeing your previous upload - even though you didn't use any external blockers or cleared the cookies.
8 - You upload another image, everything is fine. You refresh the greywool page and you are not able to see the images again.

I think on the server side there is an issue between uploaded images and their uploader uuid. Since uuid write operation is not blocked by browser, I think this is the only possible reason. This might not be end-user/browser related.

Even though let say someone upload an image with uuid bdab8925fa2d99e0d2f3f9d144eaa6d6 (random hash), he is not able to see that in my "uploaded" images page.

I hope this clarifies the issue a bit better. My oldest registered photo for my uuid is from 12 months ago. And I uploaded several more afterwards which didn't made into list

Same here. In other words yellow marked notice is not true for us.

I checked my browser settings (Firefox), Twim's cookies are allowed. I even disabled tracking protection but it didn't work.
It's not a big deal for me, I just want to support and tell you are not the only one.

Oh and thank you for this free service Jace! You even changed the title for me :smile: Appreciate all the efforts.

Nop, not a penny. Then again, I've not done much with/for it. Though now that four days of Damn Busy are over, I might be able to look into what might be up with it.
Also unsure if it's only two people who use it or only two people who have a problem with it. Can anyone report in that it works fine for 'em?
