Secure Weavers

 
Cache is clear but the links no longer work. For my other ones I had to change the hyperlink from http to https manually in all my post before they would work again.

I noticed that images hosted on Photobucket were not always loading for me at home. But were still visible on my laptop from the office and on my phone. I changed the link of the image to https from http and it works and I can see the image.

It also spills over into the same PbP IC thread under the links for each character's "Show Statbloc" spoiler. Once the spoiler opens click on the player name and heir character sheets are now lost. Not sure if this can be fixed but it is an issue that pre-migration pbp games will have to deal with.
For all it's worth, I too tried clicking on all of these, and everything works just fine on my end as well o.O

I have a related issue, I think. Since I don't use Photobucket I don't know about my own images, but for others that use Photobucket, I'm definitely not seeing their images. I'm hoping there's a better solution than asking them to update their links to "https"

I have to second Paro's report.
I'm seeing similar behavior in Firefox - due to mixed-content blocking. Apparently Firefox's security settings will prevent non-secure content (http) from displaying on secure sites (https). This issue is Firefox-specific (as mentioned in one or more of the articles linked below).

More information:

Disabled Firefox's Mixed Content Blocker:
Turn Off Firefox’s New Mixed Content Blocker
Disable Mixed Content in Firefox

Notes:
I disabled the Mixed Content Blocker in the latest version of Firefox.
In order to restore previous functionality, I had to change:
security.mixed_content.block_active_content to false
security.mixed_content.send_hsts_priming to false

I hope this helps!

Hello. I do not know where to post this request, so I ask for you to please forgive me for posting it here:

I love PbP because it allows to play TTRPG regardless the players' real world locations and schedules. I have invited a lot of of people to play in Myth Weavers, but some of them have complained about the site not being accessible in their phones.

Would it be too much too put into consideration to upgrade the site so it can be phone friendly? It will open Myth Weavers to a even larger player population.

Thanks for your time.

A phone? Madness! How would you type posts?

I've been phone posting for years on here.

But a Myth Weaver app. Now that sounds like fun. We must have an app developer or two in here...

The app itself isn't the hard part - the problem is that there isn't some core api for getting the data in & out - vbulletin has all display, business, application, and data logic mish-mashed together. On top of that there are a bunch of modifications to the core codebase, which mean we can't really use any off-the-shelf solution. This means that getting an equivalent going with a different front-end (like an app) basically means re-implementing everything, and then again every time there's a change. Super demoralizing and prohibitive to work with.
