csTimer released

I released a tiny Google Chrome extension which makes it easy to share your daily progress in csTimer into social media, such as Twitter.

This extension helps me create a Twitter post with my best times in a single session.
It automatically generates a text string like below:

Today's 3x3x3 practice:
1/5/12/50/100 = 15.80/20.40/21.92/22.30/23.62
I've been often posting my progress in such a format after practicing 3x3x3, for example, but it takes me a lot of copy and paste work which is annoying.
This extension was developed just for personal profit like this, but I would like to share it with the cubing community. (but I am not for sure if this thread is an appropriate place to share or not. sorry if it's inappropriate.)

I hope this extension will help other cubers who share the same interest as well.
You can check more detail information on the GitHub repository or the extension page on Chrome Web Store.

Due to a bug, when I open the site it shows all my named sessions but no solves, this is no issue because I can just import from server and it is all fixed, today I accidentally exported the 0 solves and when I import to server using the code it deleted all 3000 of my miscellaneous solves. Is there anyway I can recover them?

Nope. That's why I always back it up to my WCA account, my csTimer account, and occasionally save a copy on my desktop

Some help would be appreciated. I accidently got an cube at the timer after hitting some random keys on my keyboard. And now when I start the timer, I can only move the cube on the screen, and then only the timer starts. How do I remove this can someone tell

option -> global -> import non-latest data

a click on the question mark reveals some additional info:

[?] If you've uploaded multiple backups, you can import from one of the up to 10 most recently uploaded backups, if you accidentally upload an empty backup, this option will help you retrieve your solves.

Sounds like you hit ctrl+alt+v which sets your input for timer (option->timer->entering in times with) to virtual. You can go to the settings and change it back or use ctrl+alt+
s=stackamt
t=timer
i=typing

Okay, so you did the first step. Enabling the option.
After you checked that box and clicked okay you have to import again and this time it will ask you which one of the most recent backups you want to import.

Since cubing timers have existed, there has been a glaring problem. Non-cubers look at a timer, only to find that they cannot understand them. So they look at one after another, yet they never found one. Until now. A new update has been released to csTimer, and it includes an amazing feature. Non-Cuber Mode. The sea of non-cubers who have craved a timer for them will finally have a purpose for living, and the world will rejoice. To experience this unfathomably amazing mode, visit here.

A true visionary of our times, he has compiled every single non-cuber saying into 4 screenshots, I thought it would be impossible to compile such a thing but somehow you did it with a 100% accuracy rating

Best update ever

can anybody tell me how to rename sessions ?
In settings under "Statistics" there's the option to "Rename session immediately after creation". Tick that box and any new session you will be able to rename.

If you want to rename one you already made, click on the word "Session" on the time bar on the left and find the session.
Click the three dots and rename.

If you have 1 session, but you have like 3 solves on one device and 4 on the other, is it possible to merge them?

Edit: ok that seems confusing.
Say I have my 3x3 session uploaded on cstimer on my phone, and on my computer. If I do 50 solves on my computer and 50 solves on my phone, is there any way I could combine those times to upload? Because I would have to choose one or the other to upload otherwise. I don’t mean combining sessions. I mean different times from the SAME SESSION but in different places being combined.

I don't think so. You can manually fuss with the sessions exported JSON but it's not worth it.
