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.

I'm a noob in web dev.
Only know some shallow knowledge of Web Hosting/domain, HTML and CSS from editing blogspot template. And I run a website for a year only running a landing page.

I stumble on a github page about imageboard software, and it appears that Lynx are the most popular one. So that's why I'm here.

Does anybody have any source of manual (book or video) that contain knowledge from the very basic about how to apply LynxChan, so I can make my own Imageboard website?

Already try to google it but nothing quite comprehensive.

Another question,
Can it run on imageboard App on android like "Overchan,"
I try to open this web using the app but it appears only like a web browser, not like 4chan or 8chan. Thanks.

Hit me up on email: kamkazert@gmail.com

>Basic 101

First read both the main readme and src/be/readme. Then megamilk from mewch made this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLWnMcg_L8U

>Can it run on imageboard App on android like "Overchan,"


>Also how to test it on my own computer as a server?, i saw some tutorial on the url bar it says "localhost"

This is basic networking. A server is just another computer. If this computer is on a virtual machine or is your own computer, it doesn't matter. When you see "localhost" it just means the person is connecting from the same computer running the software.

Join #lynxchan on rizon's irc if you want a more real time thing.

Where is the date modified?
Modified the js file. But it doesn't work.

You mean the time since it was posted? I didn't add it to this front-end, only to penumbra and I don't know what exactly you did.

Anonymous 10/26/2018 (Fri) 16:16:58 No. 515
Modify time format
Ex: 2018-10-20 (Do not want this 14:55:11)

Anonymous 10/26/2018 (Fri) 16:27:17 No. 516
I see. You want to remove the time and leave just the date?

Anonymous 10/30/2018 (Tue) 03:21:46 No. 517
Yes.What should I do?

You would have to either handle it with js after loading or make an addon. That is no configurable.

blow jobs thanks to lynxchan! Anonymous 10/22/2018 (Mon) 03:46:58 No. 512 [Reply]
i like how lynxchan is meant to save people shitloads of money! with certbot and letsencrypt ssl , this money saving concept should be extended to ssl though!!! built in ssl is no longer necessary with free letsencrypt options. also, it costs money tonget the two required cert files. so im running lynxchan on ubuntu, from here to use letsencrypt i install nginx, then delete apache, then set up the sal cert with letsencrypt, right? As a feature request, maybe have it more user friendly tonuse letsencrypt? thanks !! i spend my money on coke and whores so saving money on ssl certs should be at least 3 more blow jobs from whores per week.

Ignore it. It won't affect anyone in practice and bcrypt has been removed from 2.1 which will be release in a month or so.

Hey, admin. Do you do anything to secure mongo db in your setup file? Apparently mongo db is crazy not secure. This article explains why.

Anonymous 10/11/2018 (Thu) 12:12:14 No. 505
Mongo is not secure if you make not to be. I don't know about other install methods, but the default on their RHEL repository is secured, it won't allow external connections.

The problem is that most people in IT are completely retarded and left their dbs unsecured.

Anonymous 10/11/2018 (Thu) 21:23:32 No. 506
>>505 yeah, like me. Im a retard. Just thought i would share with ppl, it sucks for new ppl but everyone had to start something new at one point. And if there are security risks that a new person could fall to, well, there should be some instruction in the readme in how to fix the security hole. Not everyone who runs lynxchan is a fucking car mechanic grease monkey or a good server admin. There are different levels of skill in anything. Having an elitist attitude and just saying ppl are retarded, then being too fucking lazy to address real security issues that could effect new people, that is retarded too. So fuck your shit attitude. If you make a product, do it right instead of being a cock sucker elitist in order to be lazy and make excuses for shitty work. Just kidding lol

Anonymous 10/11/2018 (Thu) 22:04:50 No. 507
And that's why I recommend people using CentOS, so the default install is secured.

Thumbnail Generation Clover user 10/07/2018 (Sun) 07:52:31 No. 502 [Reply]
I'm trying to write a client for clover app, but thumbnails have missing extension in filename. Due to which thumbnails aren't working in clover. Any help?

Anonymous 10/07/2018 (Sun) 13:51:48 No. 503
The response header Content-Type will tell you the type of the file. I don't know how clover works, but that's how you would figure that out.

Same ip for all posts Anonymous 10/05/2018 (Fri) 21:48:02 No. 500 [Reply]
Hey, I'm running LynxChan through nginx and all the posts have the same ip. (The Ip of the server)

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Anonymous 10/06/2018 (Sat) 00:28:09 No. 501
Set nginx to use the forward header with the origin ip, x-forwarded-for.

Lynxchan for docker Anonymous 09/25/2018 (Tue) 12:44:58 No. 498 [Reply]
I'm a noob with docker, only know how to run images them not make them.

Does anyone already have, or want to make, lynxchan for docker? Either an all in one, or lynxchan in one that links to a separate mongodb image?
That would be sweet.

Anonymous 09/26/2018 (Wed) 12:35:17 No. 499
that would prolly not work out very well and be waste of time. In case you did not notice, lynxchan changes versions frequently as it is develops. The front ends do not work with newer versions. In contrast to docker, i log in to the ssl, run the commands to get the dependancies, then get lynxchan then install it. I have all the commands on a text file, i copy and paste them so an install from total scratch takes exactly 5 minutes. Docker complicates things and is utterly not beneficial to the concepts of lynxchan... easy to run and not expensive because you can install it on any cheap vpn. Docker is for insecure people who are too lazy to make a text file with the commands on them. No need for docker at all. So, as one of the leading developers of LynxChan, i could say that i will do it, but for 43,000,000 usd and make sure to specify which version you want on docker. Also, You have a choice in the Ppe the frog front end or a pic of someone shitting on a SJW tard. Let us know which pic you want for the default. Thanks! The official LynXchan andmin team
