setup.js in fe Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 16:21:56 No. 426 [Reply]
So on the original placeholder, what does the setup.sh on in the fe directory do?

It copies the example settings.js file so js can work.

YouTube embed??? Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 13:24:22 No. 406 [Reply]
How come no youtube embeds? That is a great way to add depth to a board. Sure, anyone can link to a youtube vid, but the ability to embed a vid right i. The board keeps the user at the board.

Penumbralynx has embeds. Did you create the settings.js file? Without it, js won't work.

hmmm... its interesting that Penumbralynx has embeds. Im brand new to lynxchan , just installed it yesterday. i was just working with the placeholder files, editing them slightly to customize the looks. I guess i will have to try and install Penumbralynx - it would be nice if there were working examples though, the git page with examples has either broken links or no example page for just about every theme.

having youtube embeds is a huge addition to any board- i am shocked its not a standard feature. I would say that is one thing that the older boards like tinyib tinyboard any vichan still have over lynxchan. especially on a mobile phone, its easier to be able to see the embed video right in the board, extra navigation is awkward on mobile phones.

i tried it, the youtube embed was not very good. On vichan for example, the youtube embed shows up a a video image. It is awkward for a user to have to click on "embed" link just to see the video pic. Lynxchan is interesting and clearly superior to older php boards- all that technology is lost if its awkward or more difficult for a user to navigate the board though, especially on mobile devices. Some things are very awkward. Like having the post lock to its own thread after someone posts. Think about the logic of that. You make a post, and it returns you to your own post. What is expected, that the poster just sits there on that page and waits for a reply? That is awkward. The poster knows that it make take a lot of time for a reply, so returning the user to the board in order to browse all the posts makes more sense. Moreover, navigation is awkward after the board locks one into the post that one just made. There isn't even a good link to return to the main board. And the youtube embed is totally awkward. Lnxchan clearly boasts superior technology to php boards, but there is a lot of room to make the user experience better and less awkward, especially for mobile devices. More and more people use mobile devices to browse, and this will never change. Oah and i really like the placeholder front end, its seems nice to navigate and is easy on the eyes and seems fairly modifiable.

well i only installed lynxchan yesterday, looks like i will move all my vichan boards to lynxchan! So in general, lynxchan is supposed to be far more secure than vichan, right? I finally found an awesome version of vichan called NPF chan (on git) - npfchan had lots of auto archive features and a very nice create a new thread button like 4chan. mlpol . net has a working instance of npfchan. Anyways, i did lots of customization to npfchan and got it looking really nice, but wtf--- lynxchan is so fast and if its more secure then it is awesome and hard to go back to php boards.

Capcha Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 13:32:18 No. 407 [Reply]
Is there a specific file to edit in order to disable capcha?

Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 14:08:31 No. 415
As a whole? No. For posting, check the board settings. There is also a global setting that enables captcha globally, but that one I am sure it's disabled by default.

Front end Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 13:34:52 No. 408 [Reply]
Could one manually upload a new front end right to the fe folder after deleting the old one in order to quickly test new front ends?

Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 14:07:48 No. 414
Yes. But is more practical to have all of them on separate places and change the one being used on the global settings. If you change that setting using the gui acessible from global management, the engine will reload everything to use the new front-end.

Is there a way to have the board return to the main posting board after one is done posting instead of having it locked into the particular thread?

looks like mewch has the best front end. https://www.mewch.net/ SO, i just installed lynxchan and it works. Now, how do i turn captcha off entirely, and does anyone know how i can get an awesome front end like mewch or similar? I notice like every popular board has the same front end, just wondering where a good one is that is easy 2 work with. Like specifically, the cool front end that the popular sites are all using would be awesome!

Anonymous 09/16/2018 (Sun) 04:14:11 No. 403
They paid a dude to make that front-end. Most sites use a fork of penumbralynx.
This front-end contains a good amount of features and is kept up to date with the latest stable version and doesn't require anything extra to work.

How can I get all of the logs using JSON?
I can grab logs at a given date by using, for example

But I'd like to get all the logs at once, or even better, the logs from the previous 24 hours.

Anonymous 08/18/2017 (Fri) 03:02:25 No. 395
Theres no such feature.
You can get a listing of logs available, though.
And then work from there.

Delete only files
Delete media (Actually removes the saved files from the server, standard file deletion only removes the reference to the selected posts)

Captcha(Used only for reporting): No cookies?
