No cookie posting Cat 11/17/2019 (Sun) 11:04:59 Id:be2513 No. 1705 [Reply] [Last]
Make it possible to post with cookies disabled. Slamming the Post/Reply button with cookies disabled doesn't do anything.
But it is possible. Unless you are talking about the blockbypass. With that enabled, there's no way around it, you need cookies to post.
>>1706 It doesn't work. I know fe. Freech.net has block bypass disabled but trying to hit Reply with cookies disabled doesn't do anything.
From what it seems, is the browser blocking js functionalities because of cookies being blocked. I managed to post without cookies and js. But without cookies js wouldn't work. I don't think any of this is part of the standard, so I don't have a way to handle it on the js. tl,dr: if you are going to turn off cookies, turn off js too.
>>1709 Indeed, it does work when you also turn off JS. Weird.

Lynxchan new version Cat 11/16/2019 (Sat) 02:42:56 Id:bc297d No. 1680 [Reply] [Last]
I heard that the new version of Lynxchan coming out tomorrow is 5 times faster and will make php users feel like faggots who suck mule cocks. Is that true? Also it says it will be avail 9 am is that eastern time? Lastly, how about a post announcing it and telling ppl what changes are made, i know its free software but how about some customer service god dammit. wew ladd
2.3 is not that different as far as performance goes. But it should be able to perform more concurrent requests from cached pages, because I implemented a double cache system. Yes, it will exit beta tomorrow. And I already made an announcement with the new features. As far as specifications go, there's a document with them, specchangelog.txt.
>>1685 That's not what i heard. I heard that the new version will make php boards look as gay as a male goat that fucks othher male goats right in front of a gay bathhouse.
>>1693 I'm sold

When someone posts, its nice to return them to the main board. Pls think of the logic of the current way. I make a new post, and it returns me to my own post. Well, i just made the post, so there will not be any replies there. Now i am forced to figure out how to get back to the main board. The logic of returning someone to the main board is better, isn't it? You make a post, and now you are at the main board to do whatever you want. IF you want to click on your own post fine. IF you want to keep browsing and come to your own post, fine! Returning a user to the main board is pleasant, more logical. Locking a user to viewing the post they just made makes sure that they now have to go to main board in order to do whatever they want next. Its like, make a post, oah great now im trapped looking at my own post which i just made. Pls think about that for future versions. Coding a noko or something is just a pain to maintain, simply returning the user back to the main board after the user makes a post is the simplest, most efficient, most user friendly and most logical way to go. Thanks,.
>>1692 Nah, 'always noko' is handy because I keep the tab of my thread open to wait for the automatic refresh to display replies. I hate it when chans redirect you to the board instead of your thread.
>When someone posts, its nice to return them to the main board. i fkn hate that
Real niggas browse by catalog and open threads in new tabs, leaving it there until the site title shows a new post Badchan - your shit thread (1)

DO NOT USE OTHER PPLS FRONT ENDS Lou Skunt 11/16/2019 (Sat) 03:02:31 Id:5deb06 No. 1681 [Reply] [Last]
Hey, Lynx. If you look at the 16 chan fe, see how they have a [create new thread] thing that you have to click on to show the post form? 4 chan and npf chan does that, and it makes the boards look WAY better from mobile. Seriously, couldn't you make that a feature in lynxchan? It would be a great improvment to lynxchan and people would think its cool. I would pay you 1,000 usd if you make that a lynxchan default feature, no joke. Also it would make ppl like lynxchan way better. For new ppl- when you download an entire front end like the best one the 16chan front end , its not worth it. YES, it has the [create new thread] link in it to show the posting form like npfchan and 4chan has. BUT it also has probs. Images can not be uploaded via iphones. Also there is code at the top of most every html page to use a google analytics like program, you want to take that code out of there. ALSO, when you download some assholes entire front end, it often comes with a hidden area where it gets a file from another server and that could be used to actually upload a file to your server. For example, some asshole hides a call to test.js in there where the test.js goes to his site and gets it. Well he can just change test.js to malicious code on his site and now it will run on yours.

>>1687 oh wait i did but it's not quite the same as his
>>1684 Lynx, would you be willing to make a simple fe? One with [create new thread] link like 16chan or indiachan has. Take out the top menu and options and the side pannel. Just a couple links on top, like a link to go to the home page. (and the menu list could be on home page) and the create new thread link. That way, one can go to a board from a cell phone and its pleasant to look at and navigate. If you go to 4chan from a mobile phone you can see they did it just fine. They just keep it simple on top so cell phone users have a great experience and its easy to navigate the board. Other ppl's fe is OFTEN fucked up with errors here and there. If you make something like that i would pay 1000 dollars (can you get paypal or something so i can pay by credit card?) Hopefully, others would donate to you as well. The idea here is that yes, you have extra work maintaining the fe, but you would be paid for it- and people would have a fe they can trust. I am so fucking sick of assholes putting up fe's that always have tons of probs- they recklessly cut and paste code so its always buggy and slow and unsafe to use. Just an idea, and i would gladly pay. The ONLY thing holding lynxchan back from php is ppl can go to a stupid php board from a cell phone and it looks fine. By the way, mobile apps are just extra shit. Well coded front end sites like 4chan dont need any sort of app- it just looks very good from mobile phones browser or computer. Making a fe that was capable of looking JUST as good as like 4chan on mobile would bring 4chan to a WHOLE new level, and people could put vichan to rest like hotwheels tweeted that people should have did a long time ago cuz vichan is so old and outdated and expensive to run. Thanks.
>>1684 It would be SO awesome to have a simple, fast fe that makes browsing from a cell phone easy. Just 3 links on top, maybe the css changer, a link to the home page (board list) and a create new thread link. Oah and maybe a catalog link. Thats 4 links on top total, no more are needed at all from a cell phone. This way, the focus is on the boards themselves, and people can visit boards from cell phone and participate in the discussions instead of fighting to navigate and figure out how to navigate. simple is faster, easier, more useful and makes future coding easier. Thanks

Cannot set favicon.ico Cat 11/15/2019 (Fri) 01:01:38 Id:0da749 No. 1655 [Reply] [Last]
I cannot find the file directory that i would use mongofiles with to set my favicon icon. ..What the hell is it? I'd use the bash command "ls" to view the folder directory/list but this mongofiles doesn't appear to have that functionality?..
21 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>1655 Jesus christ, no one helped you? Here is the info you need. cd home/LynxChan/src/fe/static make sure you cd into the above directory. Make sure that your favicon is in that directory, as to make it easy i took out the path to the favicon.ico Then the following command will work as long as you cd into the static dir where the faviconn, and site logo is. mongofiles -h localhost -d lynxchan -l favicon.ico put /favicon.ico
>>1676 Hey, Lynx- sometime can't you just make it so one can do it from the admin pannel? for example make a .sh file, put it right in the static dir (so path to favicon isnt needed) >>> mongofiles -h localhost -d lynxchan -l favicon.ico put /favicon.ico <<< then, make a call to the sh file. whenever you want to update whatever favicon.ico is in that static directory. Honestly Lynx, PHP is about done but you have to step up some little things to make LynxChan easy for new ppl to set up.
>>1682 No, because none of this is inherently related to the engine. Is just you putting a random file on gridfs.
>>1679 you and the favicon doesn't have to be in that dir
>>1679 What >>1689 said. You don't have to be in the same dir as the favicon so you aren't helping at all.

>>1651 LynxChan can't connect to the Mongo database which is on port 27017. What happens if you execute 'mongo' in your terminal, can you get into mongo at all?
Make sure Mongo is running by executing systemctl enable mongod and systemctl start mongod.
