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.

Come funpost at https://spacechan.xyz/b/
I am not shitting you, just look at the posting forms. It's extremely basic.
no thx
from the posting form, I get it's about the name "files".
Then it may be an array of files, not sure what's going on exactly, I try a combination of those. >>886

>PayloadTooLargeError: maximum file length exceeded

Is this a node.js error? How would one go about fixing it? Happens when posting video that is below the file size (MB) limit.
there is another MB limit, somewhere at the top of settings
you are a gentleman and a scholar.

Is there some kind of special technique needed to clone from gitgud ? First time using it instead of github

Disregard. Just seems it's a really outdated version of node.js

Installed newer version that has NPM. It seems to be working. I typed 'lynxchan' and got a response that it's booted, though if I visit the directory with a web browser, all I get is the file list. I don't see an index file anywhere.
Are you running a webserver too? You are not supposed to unless you really need it and know what you are doing.
Well yeah, I have Apache running. Testing Lynx for a potential replacement to our current software.
Lynx starts on port 8080 by default, you don't need to put it in Apache.

Hello. On my board it says ASN: on every post, and they all also say history and post history, although nothing is viewable. I am on Penumbra Lynx.
You are using a version of penumbralynx too new for your engine version. Or at least you did at some point. Change the penumbralynx version (it's probably on master branch instead of 2.2.x) then use -cc to clean up individual caches.

What the fug is wrong with this quick reply? I try and most more than like 2 files and the post button goes off the screen and stays there! Is there some way to make the little thumbnails in the quick reply not display? Or be smaller? Or just make it get wider instead of going off the fucking screen?

Picture #4 was not accepted by the server, here it is.
No, that's entirely on the front-end, on the css. I improved it recently on penumbra to make way more thumbs fit into the posting form. Spacechan haven't updated anything for a while now.
Where can the size of the thumbnails in the quick reply be changed in the CSS?
Nevermind, I figured it out.
New question

Where the fug can I define the distance between thumbnails in the quick reply?

What css file?
you can see what file the element you're changing is in with the browser's inspector

I am having two problems with my installation of Lynxchan, both seemingly random. For some people, all CAPTCHAs expire extremely quickly, seemingly immediately. No cookies captcha can be used. For others it works perfectly. For some people logging into an account does not redirect you to the control panel of the your account from which you can create a board. For others this works perfectly. I am using the most recent stable version of Lynxchan with the Kohlnumbra frontend and the KC addon. These errors have happened to at least two people, myself included and happens on multiple browsers, with multiple IP adresses. Clearing cache, cookies, ect does nothing to fix this.
3 posts omitted.
Anyway to fix it without just ditching cloudfare? It would be nice is people couldn't mass report our host again.
Yes, people have fixed it before. But I have never used CF before so I don't know how to.
Do you know anyone who might know?
>>853 do you see the set-cookie header in the response when requesting the captcha?

Dashchan Anonymous 07/01/2019 (Mon) 17:20:24 No. 846 [Reply]
Okay so I want to be able to browse a Lynxcham site with Dashchan, and after some reading I learned to just assign endchan's extension to the url I want to visit. It worked, but I can't post. I get an invalid server response. From what I understand this is some sort of security certificate issue.

Short of making a Dashchan extension (which is beyond me) is there a way to do what I want to do?
1 post omitted.
I guess my next question would be, are there any mobile apps for Lynxchan, but I'm assuming not, except for Lynxchan Mobile which seems dead.
You are right.
The alternative being the site using a front-end that is properly adapted for mobile.
It is serviceable. There were some features that Dashchan has that I wanted to take advantage of, but I guess I will make due.
Bernd has implemented the new Lynxchan API for Kohlchan in Overchan. Maybe you can change it to your needs.

It doesn't seem Kohlchan is on their board list.... I installed v1.5.1.

how the fuck do i install addons.
1: copy them to the src/be/addons directory.

2: add their names to the list of addons on the global settings. The name being the name of the addon directory or file.
Example: addon1, addon2.

3: restart the engine.

If the addon doesn't load, enable verbose mode so the error is output.
Trying to install the KC add-on gives me a whole bunch of errors, but the gist seems to be the following:

Error, missing element divHash
Error, missing element lableHash

Page index
Error, missing element linkEngine

What do I do from here?
Check the version of the front-end and the engine you are using. Also, make sure your front-end is compatible with it. That addon require a few extra elements on the front-end.


no cookies?
