2.2 breaking api changes Stephen Lynx Board owner 12/07/2018 (Fri) 22:26:24 Id: 1101c6 Pinned No. 647 [Reply]

On 2.2 the json api features were merged into the form api and removed afterwards.
So not only the json input was removed, bu also the json output of the form api was remade. The refactoring is finished and penumbra has been adapted.

2.2 is scheduled to be released on march of 2019.

for some reason , when i click on an image, it opens it in a new tab instead of resizing it and opening inline on the page.. like if you click on any image..how do i fix that?

Your js isn't working.

Location flags? Did you install the location data?

It's cool, even if I made a board dedicated to support, I am not that strict to it, it is still on-topic.

Three things:

1. Are you able to bumplock threads in the latest LynxChan version? I know it's not possible in 2.0.1.
2. Stop requiring users to login to IRC to be able to join #LynxChan, that's retarded.
3. Enable TOR for this chan. It's annoying to have to enable a VPN in order to post anonymously.

Cat 01/07/2019 (Mon) 11:26:20 Id: b6bf88 No. 669
1: No.
2: I didn't use to, but there was too much spam going on so I started requiring it.
3: My site is not intended for general use.

Cat 01/07/2019 (Mon) 12:09:44 Id: d20485 No. 670
1. Why not? It is a very handy feature and shouldn't take much time to code (I don't have enough coding skills to do so myself).
2. I hope you will revert it soon, don't feel like registering for IRC.
3. Exactly, so for the 5 people who visit every month TOR could be interesting no? I sincerely doubt it would cause any problems.

Cat 01/07/2019 (Mon) 16:29:40 Id: b6bf88 No. 671
1: Because there is already regular locks, bumplocks are just a way for mods to manipulate users into dropping a topic instead of outright making it clear they don't said topic to be discussed. Is not much different than shadowbanning. People are left with an impression the subject isn't popular when it is being actually censored.

2: Actually, I will try removing it again, if spam comes back I will re-enable it.

3: There are several ways to contact me and the potential problems tor posting could cause seems to be way bigger than a few people not feeling like using any of the available means to contact me.

When viewing a thread, the "Return" link is missing unless you let scripts run.

Why do this? Please make "Return" html, kthx.

Cat 01/01/2019 (Tue) 23:52:35 Id: 8bd252 No. 658
What front-end are you using? The placeholder? It is discontinued and isn't related to the engine.

Cat 01/04/2019 (Fri) 01:24:55 Id: b816b9 No. 662
I am using just this site/board. We are considering new software, so I came here to just check it out some.

Lynxhub has no "Return" button. So as I type this, and after submitting it, there is no way to go back to the board.

Cat 01/04/2019 (Fri) 10:56:43 Id: 918cd1 No. 663
This site uses the placeholder front-end. I will change it to penumbra when 2.2 enters beta.

Most of the front-end work I've done in the past few years have been on that project.


This is a promo video I made for penumbra, you really should look into it.

Cat 01/06/2019 (Sun) 01:33:20 Id: b816b9 No. 664

Out of curiosity, what other front ends are there? Is there a repository or list of them, or is it more of something you leave the webmasters to create?

The mewch.net admin was arrested for copyright violation so he shut down his site. Apparently Stephen Lynx turned him in for copying lynxchan. Mwech said his database failed. Nice job, Lynx.

I was able to install lynxchan on my local server but how would I install it in heroku?

Cat 12/24/2018 (Mon) 11:19:36 Id: 927ae2 No. 652
I have absolutely no idea about anything about heroku.

I'd be happy to remake it. If you do have any trouble feel free to ask on this board or on the lynxchan IRC channel.

is it not possible to do on Windows?

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