Stephen Lynx is a cunt.
Hope you manage to make this software better so I don't have to deal with the trannycoder and his butt plug addons.

probably a yeast (Candida) infection. if you brush your teeth daily, u aren't likely ever going to get it.
Could someone list all the bugs from Lynxchan just for the keks?
Replies: >>440
Lynxchan itself isnt that buggy it just makes the mistake of not including a proper frontend. The default frontend is really ugly and ruins the experience. Feature wise lynxchan is quite good and its latest versions have made some nice improvements. I think if you made a frontend to replicate infinity, most users would like lynxchan but sadly that hasn't happened.
One bug I can think of (not sure if fixed now) is that if you post withotut a block bypass, you get redirected to the block bypass page. Sounds normal, right? Well even though your post didnt go through, it still counts towards flood detection so sometimes you still get blocked from posting.

Read up on https://gitlab.com/alogware/xanderlynx and come back, as that theme is pretty good, and is applied to many websites.
What are the outputs of the backend anyway? Just a JSON API? Also are there any other frontends of Webring+Lynxchan?
Replies: >>442
I think julay.world uses xanderlynx. I just checked and it still has issues like horizontal scrolling (not having proper max width or overflow css), scripts not combined, content jumping, unlabelled icons in weird places, etc.
>what are outputs of backend
Lynx frontend is the js, css and templates that the backend will fill in with data and output json and html to gridfs, files within mongodb.

I figured out why GIFs had a noticeable delay when processing. Issue has been fixed and gifs should process as fast as any other file again.
good news thanks
Replies: >>213
It was actually kind of funny why. Basically GraphicsMagick was being really slow to "identify" the image. Identify gets information like the size, resolution, format, color, etc. For GIFs it was doing an identify on every frame so it would take normal image identify time * number of frames. I previously changed this with thumbnailing because it tries to do the same thing (makes a thumbnail of every frame) but it never occured to me that identify would have the same problem. Thankfully the GM wrapper I am using makes it easy, I literally just changed the filename to have an array index on it like filename.gif[0] which means to just take the first frame.

Nice work. Good thing it was such a simple fix tbh.

Just testing the upload progress script. When you make a post the "New thread" or "New reply" button will show a percentage of upload. For posts without files it usually just skips right to 100, but its pretty useful when uploading files.

Also when posting in a thread, the page wont refresh when you post, it will show up the same way other posts arrive live (through the websocket) and scroll down and highlight your post.

This applies for users with javascript enabled. Everything works how it did as usual for noscript users,

Fun fact: Starfish actually do this; cut them into pieces and they will regenerate a new starfish from each piece.

You sure that's the original bro?

Kek. It's a long-standing meme that someone edits his stuff to include a star of david to imply the kikes were behind w/e the comic was lampooning. for example, cloudflare in this case would have (((BIG))) one. that's 'the original'. Ben himself plays along with it when he used to dump a new one on /pol/.
Replies: >>210
Hehe, went over my head. I have seen some edits and the pieces from triggered journalism interns but seems like Ben doesn't care too much. The star of david is already implied in most cases so im not surprised about him playing along.

Hey there, so I noticed that I was clicking the wrong items to lock and pin threads. I was actually locking and bumplocking the threads instead. I only realized it afterwards. Looking at the layout I understand why I was confused.

Just applied some changes and rebuilt all pages to fix the action footer on them all. It looks the same for me between brave and firefox now so hopefully it is the same in other browsers.
Basically brave for some reason doesnt support display:flex in the expanding details tag so I had to nest another div. 

You might want to clear cache or ctrl+f5 (force refresh) to make sure you get the updated css

It will refresh the necessary pages now when you change the settings, and instead there is a ratelimit on changing board settings.

No tags showing in the webring for smug or julay, but it should be pretty simple for them to add

they were the two who put the webring thing together originally.

I'm interested in creating a fallback board as a bunker-bunker. Is this an agreeable idea Site Admin? It probably won't ever have much traffic as long as Julay stays up, but if it goes down for any reason, I'll migrate us the new board.

Yes, exactly my thoughts.

Will do.

>go ahead account creation and board creation is enabled.
Done. I'll add a bunker-bunker thread for redirects and lock it. Thanks, Admin.

BTW, I screwed up the 'subject' for the welcome thread. Any chance you could adapt the 'Staff Actions:' interface to allow for changing that at some point?
There is no post editing yet, but I could manually edit the subject if you want, and it will show up next time the page rebuilds. Just lmk what you want it to be.

This place isn't feature parity with some mature imageboard like lynxchan yet. Stuff like post editing (minor) and mod view (major) is still in the works.
The manage page does not require captchas to process reports in the report list, its only for stuff on public pages. Sorry if it gets annoying.

Welcome to /robowaifu/

Thanks Admin. And no worries about changes, there's no rush. Heh, I'm a software guy myself so I understand. Again, the fact you are creating this from scratch is the primary appeal for me tbh. We need more choices for resiliency in the face of antagonism and attacks. Thanks again.

Changed, and thanks.

The background of the thumbnail for my image posted is black even tho its supposed to be transparent. The big image is fine.
Replies: >>144
>>143 (OP) 
This is caused by using JPG thumbnails. I will switch to PNG to support transparency.
The old images will still have black background, but new posts will support transparent background.
Will report back when fixed.
Should be fixed from now on, and I fixed your image as an example.
Thank you
