Locked Pinned Bumplocked
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.

>>495 actually there was a point, i was going to ask how come when the pic is on my board when i click on it it opens a whole new page and does not inline expand like on here, but then i realized the setup.sh in the fe directory enables java script so inline works..... then i tried 2 delete the talor swift post but it wouldnt let me for some reason. Instead of locking that thread why not just delete it? lol

front end
Okay, seriously here. I really like this placeholder front end. It is fast as fuck, easy on the eyes and reliable. So i use Penumbra Lynx front end, which is different. Is there any way to have the ability to switch to this front end and back and forth? Since PenumbraLynx is different, the themes.js wouldn't quite do the trick to switch to this front end fromPenumbraLynx. Maybe a mod or a future addition to a new version? I would love to be able to switch from the entire PenumbraLynx theme to this placeholder front end back and forth from the board.Just changing the css colors is cool, but the ability for a user to to switch the entire front end instantly from the website itself would be so cool, and it would really be an improvement to make lynxchan even more awesome.

ssl
so cloudflare ssl does not work... they have a setting to enable ssl on the cloudflare end but even that does not work. So i need a `ssl.key` and the certificate named `ssl.cert` --- do any of the free ssl/tls certs like letsencrypt work for this? was wondering where to ger the .key and .cert files i need

8tail
half assed got 8tailed lynx FE to work- it boots up and works but shitloads of errors. Can someone pls let me know how i can start to clear the startup errors in the pic?

what i did- downloaded 8tailed lynx from git via sftp. Uploaded the directory to my server, deleted the original FE directory, and renamed the 8tail lynx as FE. (i didn't know if i was supposed to save any of the original files)
it boots up, wow it looks awesome- but shows all the errors .

Bounty! youtube
In vichan, one enters a youtube url video into the embed area, and it shits out the embedded video in the post. It shows the video and pic, one does not have to click on a link to see what the video is. It runs off youtube.js and php code. I seriously want that capability, and am willing to pay anyone to make the mod. Also, im looking for a front end. I want to keep the existing placeholder, i like it a lot. I was looking for a yotsuba style front end, just the css. Example is on 4chan and select yotsuba, it changes the css. I will pay anyone for both things, seriously. Thanks.

so i set up a reverse proxy ith nginx, to enable ssl. It worked, i have ssl. But the f-ing thing goes to a nginx page instead of lynxchan. I dont have access to lynxchan at all now. I had lynxchan pointed to port 80. Since the reverse proxy forces the domain to do ssl, i take it i have to edit a file and manually point lynxchan to ssl port 443? Can you pls tell me what file to edit?

here is what is points to now https://4usa.org/ lynxchan is installed, then i installed nginx to make a reverse proxy to force ssl. I take it i have to manually edit a lynxchan file to point it to the 443 ssl port?

emails still broke

System Requirements
So i really like LynxChan, i dumped my c panel hosting account. The cheapest digital ocean dedicated vcpu with hyperthreading is 40 bux a month, 4g ram and 2 cpu's. They have shared vcpu's the cheapest is 5 a month, 1cpu and 1g ram. Serious question, in general terms, how much of a server does one need? I take it the 5 bucks a month server wouldnt be wise in case the site gets lots of traffic. I kno, every asshole thinks they get lots of traffic but that is rare...still, what type of ram/cpu could handle a LynxChan site that would get lots of traffic? I only know how to install Lynx on ubuntu 18 by the way. I know centos is reccomended, i could learn if i had to how to use that. I know its a general question, but how much ram / cpu would be able to handle a lot of boards and a lot of traffic? 5 bucks a month to 100 bucks a month plans, i really dont know how much of a server is adequate in case the site got popular.

Easy install
Digital ocean has what, like 5 different options of minimal os server to install? So about a 20 line text file with then commands to install dependancies then use git to clone lynxchan then run setup files. One could do the same for other companies like linode. Just a simple text file with the commands to install lynxchan on each particular minimal install os. BAM! Anyone could install lynxchan in about 10 minutes that way.

Email
I did a fresh install on digital ocean of the latest ubuntu, like 18 (bionic), then added dependancies and set up lynx. There seems to be issues with the board sending emails to new users to verify email/reset acct. Without php / apache set up, is there something else i should install so lynxchan can send emails?

YouTube embed???
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.

security
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.

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 can grab logs at a given date by using, for example

digital ocean
So with digital ocean (like linode) one can set up a server droplet in centos, ubantu ect. Digital Ocean also has one quick installs, like lamp, lemp, and even 2 different versions of node.js. So is the one click installs of node.js a good place to start? Also, since digitalocean and linode are both common and popular, couldn't you make a video showing exactly how to set up lyncchan on linode and digitalocean?

node js
Is node.js backwards compatible with LynxChan? Like on digitalocean one can install node.js with one click in the newer versions. Or, one can make a ubantu or cent os install first. With so many options on DigitalOcean i have no idea the best way to set things up for Lynxchan.

Chan problems
Tinyib and vichan are absurdly outdated. Lynxchan is about impossible to install. If you made an easy tutorial that allows one to install lynxchan, I will pay someone 300 dollars. I don't want someone to install it for me, I want instructions on how to install it on my own. I love lynxchan speed and ease of use. Please help.

Loving Lynxchan so far.
I have another question, I added "application/x-bittorrent" for torrent files to the accepted mime list and it's accepting the files now. But, it's changing the names of the files. The display name is right but when I try to download them the href points to something ending in "applicationx-bittorrent.undefined"
