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

>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.

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