Issues with Penumbra Lynx Cat 12/27/2017 (Wed) 08:03:39 Id: f170f6 No. 491
Not totally sure if this is the correct place to ask this, but apparently i'm too retarded to edit a front end

How do I edit the homepage of imageboard, like the title element and footnotes and stuff? Modifying the index.html in the templates doesn't work.

I'm also confused about the overboard, as on other places like mewch it shows recently posted threads on the index, but for me it doesn't work

1: the title of the site is set on the global settings, the title of individual pages is set on the language pack.
2: after editing a template, you have to reload the RAM cache of the template. You have a few options for that: A: run lynxchan with -fd so it will reload that cache everytime it is used B: run lynxchan -nd adding a rebuild command, they can be found on src/be/readme. This will rebuild the completed page that used the template.
3: you have to set the overboard uri and the option to show recent posts on the front-page on the global settings. To edit global settings, login as root and click the link on the global management page. You can also edit the settings json manually, but that won't trigger some required actions on the engine after certain settings change and is prone to error.

Btw, I made a small mistake there: -r commands rebuilds the disk cache of completed pages, -rfe reloads the RAM cache of templates.

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