LynxChan 1.9 is about to enter beta and introduces a very important feature: JIT caching.

JIT caching is caching pages once they are requested, instead of caching when their content is changed.

This feature should allow for not only a significant reduced CPU usage but also for a more responsive experience for users.

Other from that, this version will also add a few features:
File search on media management
Maintenance images
Ability to restart the unix socket from a GUI
Subject editing
Board locking
Better global board moderation
SSL can be made mandatory
Mass bans directly from ips

No, the software known as "LynxChan" does not work.


It is objectively bad not because it was made by a Brazilian, but because it was written in Node.js


I have been the Administrator and Owner of "32Chan" for a year now, and I have only used "LynxChan" as the main software. I can guarantee you that it does not work.


It is garbage to be quite honest with you. The file names are an eyesore and you cant forget that it's written in Node.js, one of the worst languages to use when writing image board software unlike PHP.

Since I can't reply to the locked pinned thread about chans whom use lynxchan, I'll create this thread to inform you that mewch.net/ (https://mewch.net/b/) uses lynxchan.

Just dropping some front-end / back-end feature suggestions I'd love to see.

Reports should be easily accessible by janitors, moderators, and administrators. Why not have a JavaScript widget similar to 4chan's thread watcher? It allows for janitors, moderators, etc to quickly and easily address reports inline.

Ban requests: On large-scale imageboards, where we can hope LynxChan to be eventually destroyed, you'll eventually need to hire janitors that you can't really trust. For this, I propose a ban requesting system that janitors can use to request for a user to be banned based on a post that they made. This BR would be sent over to the moderators and displayed in-line in the widget.

Viewing reports: Allocate reports to a catalog
Reports could be displayed in a catalog. Many imageboard users are used to using a catalog interface to view posts, so putting reports in a catalog would make the moderation experience more comfortable for new moderators.

Archive: In-line archive that expires after a set period of time. Like 4chan's internal archives.

Restorable deletes: Don't trust janitors to permanently delete content; hide it from the users and only allow the moderators to permanently delete them. Prevents abuse by untrusted rogue janitors. Perhaps make this a configurable option, so for example a role of root could only permanently delete content.

Live-posting: Like meguca, odilitime has already started working on this with his project called megud.

I took these ideas out of multiple imageboard softwares that exist, hopefully they will all eventually exist in a single imageboard software.

You should checkout penumbralynx.

The pop up with info and shortcuts seens interesting. But I really don't dig working on front-end features.

About the features:

>Ban requests
Interesting, but I wouln't make a separate feature.
I would instead make reports made by janitors to be displayed with some kind of highlight.

>Viewing reports
In newer versions the post is already displayed in it's preview form, which is more complete than the catalog form.
I'm yet to hear feedback from the new format, though.

>Archive
Already done and removed. Not much purpose and didn't play well with the file deduplication.

Oh, that's cool. I'm not really competent enough to do any front-end development, otherwise I'd start working on this myself.

Penumberalynx is pretty nice but I'm not fond of the cyber theme that comes with it. I'm looking for something that looks like a standard Yotsuba B / Tomorrow board but has the features that vichan does.

Sounds like pretty much the same thing. I like this.


>Already done and removed. Not much purpose and didn't play well with the file deduplication.

I mean, it's only useful on semi-fast imageboards or imageboards that want their content to stay around in an archived state for a short period of time. It could also serve as a decent anti-spam measure.

Thats just a matter of changing the css.

>There's not a way to insert your own custom css, nor is there a way to set custom javascript.
That's the point of the modular front-end. You just modify it the way you want without having to change any code on the engine.

I'm currently using lainchan but was wondering if lynx is worth using it. Would It be an easy migration if I choose to? Have you ever used a tinyboard fork before and switch to lynx? Is it worth it?

Cat 08/20/2017 (Sun) 16:35:15 Id: e5a592 [Preview] No. 467
Yeah, space worked on a vichan> lynxchan migration.
And yes, its worth it.
Lynxchan performs better and has more features.
Not to mention documentation.
Come to #lynxchan and talk to space.



Feature Suggestion: Something similar to vichan's filtering system Cat 08/03/2017 (Thu) 20:50:01 Id: f2b10c [Preview] No. 462 [Reply]
In vichan, you could do something like this to globally block a known spammer.
[code]
// $config['filters'][] = array(
// 'condition' => array(
// 'name' => '/^surgeon$/',
// 'body' => '/regards,\s+(the )?surgeon$/i',
// 'OP' => false
// ),
// 'action' => 'ban',
// 'add_note' => true,
// 'expires' => 60 * 60 * 3, // 3 hours
// 'reason' => 'Go away, spammer.'
// );
[/code]

Having a feature like this for lynxchan would be extremely helpful for banning/blocking spambots. Do you think you could implement something like this for lynxchan?

Cat 08/04/2017 (Fri) 02:24:25 Id: 94d373 [Preview] No. 463
Its already done.
LynxChan integrates the stopforumspam.com and updates hourly the list of banned ips.

Cat 08/04/2017 (Fri) 15:10:39 Id: f2b10c [Preview] No. 464
>>463
No, this is a filter that is based on words. For example, you could make it automatically ban the word "pineapple" for a set period of time, or forever.

Ah, I get it.
I already wrote an addon for that, but there wasn't much interest.

There's a problem with your CSS making the border around a posts, that is shown by hovering over any linked post, uneditable.

what file would i need to edit so that IPs are deleted after a post or a few moments after a post?
