I use https://indiachan.com/ front end, it is quite cool. For some reason, on my site the "latest posts" feature shows only the post, like >>b/10 but it does not show the first few words of the post. Does anyone know why this is? THanks

Is there any way to manually pin a post? Like even if I had to edit files directly? Indiachan just kind of changed your fe around a bit, there is a lot of shit that does not work at ALL LIKE SITE MODERATION. I bet it could be manually done though.

Cat 01/22/2019 (Tue) 21:21:18 Id: c9d46a No. 688
Yes. You go to "moderate thread" for these features. penumbra offers js alternatives that do not require to browse to that page.

Cat 01/23/2019 (Wed) 19:38:13 Id: 3f60c4 No. 689
>>686 can you pls say the link to type in browser to get there? Im using indiachan and everything is broken there is never a "moderate thread"

Cat Board owner 01/24/2019 (Thu) 10:37:34 Id: 0aecfc No. 691
This would be the link for this thread, for example.
It is created by the back-end, so if it's missing, someone on the FE is missing.

So i have lynx on a bare ubuntu server. How the fuck do i get ssl? do i temporarily install apache, run letsencrypt, then delete Apache or something?

That is up to whatever system you are using. Lynxchan just reads them.

Cat 01/22/2019 (Tue) 10:54:46 Id: 43aeec No. 680
Also, if you are clueless about what you are doing, maybe using a webserver to handle ssl is for the best.

Cat 01/22/2019 (Tue) 11:46:34 Id: f0c0ef No. 681
HOW do i use a webserver??? When i put apache on the ubuntu install with lynxchan installed, it goes to the apache page. DO i have to move the lynxchan to the apache directory var/www/html/ or something?

Cat 01/22/2019 (Tue) 14:52:49 Id: 43aeec No. 683
I don't know, I don't use webservers.

Cat 01/22/2019 (Tue) 16:39:13 Id: 6a57f0 No. 687
>>683 yeah, fuck it, its a pain to set up a nginx reverse proxy or some bullshit like that. I guess I will try to find a company and buy the stupid ssl cert instead of using letsencrypt, maybe if I buy one at least I should get the files needed and try using the built in ssl? If anyone did this pls let me know. One super easy way is to use cloudflare.,..one can set up lynx, then put the site on a cloudflare cdn---even the free version of the cloudflare cdn lets you enable ssl from the user to the cloudflare cdn… so even if one does not have ssl at all on your server, it looks like you do and https works with cloudflare cdn, even the free one. No setup of the ssl, no bullshit, its easy to do.

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?

Cat 01/08/2019 (Tue) 09:00:28 Id: a2d2c2 No. 673

Cat 01/08/2019 (Tue) 14:52:10 Id: 7022a7 No. 675
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.

Cat 01/07/2019 (Mon) 10:34:46 Id: f05962 No. 668 [Reply]
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?

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.

At most as an addon, but I got other shit to do on the engine.

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