How did you find us?
The Lynx knows.
ptchan is migrating next year, or whatever
So it seems, just found their thread on their meta board about that.

I have two feature requests.
1. Allow an option to automatically put something when a user makes a thread or reply with no text. 2chan does this and replaces all no text posts with キタ━━━(゚∀゚)━━━!!.
2. Allow an option to have tripcodes with predefined outputs.
1: make an addon for that. It's an extremely frivolous feature.
2: what

Email field Cat 08/15/2019 (Thu) 19:43:02 Id:8fba1c No. 1121 [Reply]
What's the CSS code to move the email field to the top, showing it always under the Name field by default?

what about sage

For future reference, and for any non-dev people trying to remove the email field. I just searched for "email" in the following files and commented those sections out:
Seems to be working so far. I think those are all the files. If posting doesn't work, check the console and see which js file is breaking something because of missing the email field.

>>1105 Yes, according to the current maintainer fred brennan aka 8chan-admin-gone-sjw who now advocates against imageboards. NPFChan is a maintained vichan fork.

Lynxchan is definitely a good option though, provided you keep it updated.
Still trash. You can see that from the very installation guide:

>Run install.php. You will encounter an error. You should probably read my upstream bug report at https://github.com/vichan-devel/vichan/issues/229 for details. In addition to this error, you will get another error later on related to tables not existing. To get around this, you need to make sure that inc/instance-config.php has your database details defined, and you need to run the following scripts:

>run 4 separate scripts

Then another gem when things go wrong:

>White page of death
>Make sure you installed the dependencies listed in README.MD, and restart php-fpm.
Because who needs tools to diagnose issues, amirite?

>vichan is still beta software -- there are bound to be bugs. If you find a bug, please report it.
>As it stands NPFchan has no public support system.

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

I also love how they kept documentation on a separate repository because fuck you, you are not getting the instruction manual along with the tool.


And by the way, do they still make you edit PHP files to change """"SETTINGS"""" like a shit flinging ape?
Yes it has bugs, but do you not read your own board? Lynxchan has bugs, has no tests, and you pretend all the while that it is bulletproof? Yeah right.

And editing a php file for settings? Probably for comments, which JSON does not have. Maybe both of you could benefit by using YAML. Lets not forget the way lynxchan handles configuration: when you change settings, it saves the JSON to disk and uses IPC to tell workers to reload it. Is that really some revolutionary system? No, so dont pretend it is.
>Lynxchan has bugs
Name one.

>for comments
>what is documentation?

>Lets not forget the way lynxchan handles configuration
No, but at least it has a fucking GUI for doing so. And you are right, is nothing revolutionary, vichan is just below any minimum acceptable standard.

why doesnt custom css work on catalogs?
different divs maybe
I remember having a bug that was preventing it from working on the catalog when it was supposed to do. But I remember fixing it. Let me have another look at it.
It does seem to be working on both master and 2.2.x branch when I checked if the css was being linked. What exact version are you using?

its libreland

im jut a BO

no filters
Couldn't reproduce on libre.land as a BO. Do you get doubled posts as you open the page or only when it refreshes?
Because I don't get double posts on either situation.
only when it refreshes actually
weird maybe its on my side then

Ok, I agree that filtering by id could be enabled to everyone on boards that allow ids. That would be a front-end feature very feasible. Giving ids for mods to see would be a different issue.
Nice, but I don't see why the latter it needs a back-end change. Mods can already see hashed ips/octets and highlighting all the occurrences with ctr-f already gives sort of soft-ids. The ip hashes are actually more revealing as they are "ids" that persist across threads, technically the filter could directly use the ip hashes.
Because they are hashed according to a salt unique to the thread. And the front-end couldn't do it without knowing the salt. So the only way to add this id would be to implement on the back-end.
I guess that makes sense as there are not that many ips overall. Could the front end not filter by the salted and hashed ip though even if it worked only within that thread?
Sure, the FE could filter by ip in any form. But then it would have to request the json version of the mod.js page, or just work in that page. And by that point we are talking about an awful lot of work for a feature that will be used by a negligible share of users.
