Issues with image host

Post by Helladamnleet » Tue May 07, 2019 6:57 am

There's something weird going on with Pwigo. I'm not sure if I'm going to replace it or fix it, so hang tight. UBB.Threads has built in image uploading, so I might just leave it broken until I upgrade the site.

So for now I'm just fixing Pwigo. I did the update rather than a complete reinstall, and with any luck it won't fuck up again for at least long enough that I can just keep updating it.

I know some of you are thinking "But why not host images off site?" well, the thing with that is, over time the image hosts go down, and we lose the images associated with valuable guides. Go search for a guide on any car made more than 10 years ago and you'll see what I mean. What's even MORE annoying is that the thumbnails frequently get retained, so you get a nice teaser on what exact information you're missing out on.
