The main IRC channel is #lynxchan at Rizon.
I also created a side-channel with the same name at OFTC for TOR users.
Avoid using the channel at OFTC unless you REALLY can't or don't want to use Rizon to avoid fragmenting information exchange.

There should be a shitload of ppl going to lynxchan from vichan soon. Php7.4 totally fucks vichan, crazy amount of errors.
3 posts omitted.
>>1298 Same difference. Vichan/NPFchan can easily be used in the next years to come.
>>1297 That's 1 year from now. Lynxchan alone is over 4 years old. What will happen when 7.2 goes EOL? Not to mention, that's irrelevant to what OP said. He just said 7.4 breaks it hard and "soon" there will be people moving away from it. IMO, 1 year can be considered soon in this case.
>>1300 1 year is plenty of time to fix bugs and make it compatible with 7.4. Cope harder tranny, Vichan/NPFchan is here to stay.
>>1301 trannys deserve bullying for being degenerates but why do you think the stability of vi/npf would bother him? He saw a lack in software and made some for free
>>1301 Imagine coming all the way here to tell me the dead software lynxchan replaced won't be dead one year from now.

how can I download .templates/pages/board.html from another site? Even if i just go to anothersite/board.html it does not show up. Spiders won't download it either. Any ideas?
Unless they make their front-end open, you can't. The best you can do is to copy the full HTML and strip it down to get the template.

Comprehensive LynxChan Setup Guide 663 11/04/2019 (Mon) 00:26:44 No. 1279 [Reply] [Last]
I found that many of the guides out there for LynxChan weren't that great, and weren't very comprehensive, so I wrote one up, hopefully this helps some of you anons with setting up your own imageboards: https://im663.com/post/lynxchan-setup-guide/

CF breaks in some way LynxChan, but the issues in the tutorial can be solved: Problem is, that the original poster IP is replaced by a cloudflare IP (and the original IP will be written in some special HTTP header). If you pay for CF, this can be changed. Other solutions are: - Change request headers with nginx and use set_realip. - Modify LC, that it uses the special HTTP header as origin IP. But captchas break with Cloudflare. They can't be solved, cause Cloudflare fucks up the setting of some needed cookies. I tried different things but nothing helped. Finally I found a workaround to set the needed cookie with the help of nginx, whichs works with cloudflare.
>>1284 >Problem is, that the original poster IP is replaced by a cloudflare IP because you didn't set your shit hence CF doesn't break LynxChan
>>1285 You are wrong.
>>1284 On 2.3 you can set the cf's ip as a trusted ip, so lynxchan will use the forwarded ip instead of cf ip. Until then you had to put a reverse proxy doing that for you, because lynxchan trusts localhost for that header.

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

Wait for a while and then try again. I saw people getting that message a couple times now. Once mongo finishes whatever it is doing, you should be ok.

Hi. I'm like wondering, is there a way to make the banner clickable ? I think this would be a good feature Stephen. ^__^ Especially if the link can change according to the banner. Useful for interactivity.
