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.
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.
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.
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.
What front-end are you using? The placeholder? It is discontinued and isn't related to the engine.
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.
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.

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?

Mewch.net admin arrested Cat 01/01/2019 (Tue) 22:20:53 Id:335c83 No. 657 [Reply]
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.

The installation tutorial video is down
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?

2.2 breaking api changes Stephen Lynx Board owner 12/07/2018 (Fri) 22:26:24 Id:1101c6 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.

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

Hey, admin. Do you do anything to secure mongo db in your setup file? Apparently mongo db is crazy not secure. This article explains why.

My lynxchan instance with the placeholder front end isn't serving the favicon any more (it was yesterday, not sure what changed). The file is still in src/fe/static. Any idea how to fix this?
You need to place the file on gridfs using mongofiles on /favicon.ico
I added it with 'mongofiles put favicon.ico' but it's still not showing up on the site
You forgot to specify a location to be put, it has to be on "/favicon.ico"
That fixed it, thanks a lot

Lynxchan Docker Cat 09/25/2018 (Tue) 12:48:22 Id:7997b0 No. 620 [Reply]
I'm a noob with docker, only know how to run images them not make them.

Does anyone already have, or want to make, lynxchan for docker? Either an all in one, or lynxchan in one that links to a separate mongodb image?
That would be sweet.
that would prolly not work out very well and be waste of time. In case you did not notice, lynxchan changes versions frequently as it is develops. The front ends do not work with newer versions. In contrast to docker, i log in to the ssl, run the commands to get the dependancies, then get lynxchan then install it. I have all the commands on a text file, i copy and paste them so an install from total scratch takes exactly 5 minutes. Docker complicates things and is utterly not beneficial to the concepts of lynxchan... easy to run and not expensive because you can install it on any cheap vpn. Docker is for insecure people who are too lazy to make a text file with the commands on them. No need for docker at all. So, as one of the leading developers of LynxChan, i could say that i will do it, but for 43,000,000 usd and make sure to specify which version you want on docker. Also, You have a choice in the Ppe the frog front end or a pic of someone shitting on a SJW tard. Let us know which pic you want for the default. Thanks! The official LynXchan andmin team
