Are all of your screenshots "unsupported"? I only had about 3 out of 200.

Yes.

I have switched to not store locally to get rid of the miniture.io screenshots, run the support tool

Now all of my links in say unsupported.

These are just normal websites so should be fine?

unsupported Free account owners are not allowed to call our API using HTTPS protocol.

You should make request to 

http://api.screenshotmachine.com

not to 

https://api.screenshotmachine.com

screenshotmachine checks if you're using secure connection (https):

	protected function getImageUrl()
	{
		$apiUrl = \IPS\Request::i()->isSecure() ? 'https://' : 'http://';
		$apiUrl .= "api.screenshotmachine.com/?";
		$apiUrl .= "&key=" . \IPS\Settings::i()->links_screenshotmachine_api;

 

So no change is required.

And the generated thumbnail is fine:

But you only have 100 per month in the FREE plan.

This is weird

I have upgraded to the 2000 shots.

If I try to store images locally I get the unsupported image displayed for existing links even after going in via ftp - removing the existing image and doing the refresh thumbnail option.

I have also purged our cloudflare cache and ran the IPS support tool

If I choose not to store images locally the correct website thumbnail is displayed for existing links.

If I choose to create a brand new link, it appears to work ok with the store locally option

https://www.walkingfootball.com/links/link/55-derbyshire-walking-football-league-65s-division/

I can't delete everyones links and recreate them as it will zero all of their link stats

Totally lost now

Why don't you change that? What difference does it make to you? If the image is already generated, it won't generate again.

I'm working on a new version and won't be able to release a fix for this, if there's an error there.

Have you tried clicking "Edit" instead of "Refresh thumbnail"? You don't need to actually edit anything, but it might work better to activate the refreshing of the screenshot. Whilst in edit mode, scroll to the very bottom of the entry where it'll show the thumbnail.

Like I said earlier, I can't remember exactly how I went about it, but it might well be that I clicked "Edit" for each link that was "unsupported" or had some other error image, and it fixed it. Two or three of them stayed with an error image, and I made my own screenshots for those.

Mainly for speed, security and if their site goes down we still have the image displayed ok

Maybe I've misunderstood, but I'd have thought you'd get the above if you did store locally instead of not storing locally?

The rebuild image simply clear the link image column

It didn't work for me when I tried it when I was having similar problems to Unlucky, the screenshots remained in their respective uploads monthly folders and still showed in links. That's why I went and manually deleted all the miniature.io thumbnails via FTP.

Even didn't delete the files in the uploads folder, the column in DB is null, which makes the API to grab the image again. That's how it should work.

I'll take a look in delete files from UPLOADS folder.

You check this to prevent an error Mixed content when images loads from api.screenshotmachine.com

HTTPS supports for paid accounts

Not good because you share your api key

Second call: 

Does anyone use the PAID link feature in this app? I am planning a total overhaul in this area; it will use packages, where you can set price, number of days, pin, feature, etc.

I won’t support two similar features in same app so if this not widely used, I will drop it.
