/site/ - Site Issues

The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions.
Name?

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

So, as most of you are all aware, the MLP fandom is not exactly alive and kicking anymore. We have noticed that a majority of the site is no longer really pony related in any real way outside of /pony/ and a small sprinkling of /rp/.

As such, the mod team and I have been considering opening the site up to be more of a "general" fan site. Not specifically just ponies.

What does this mean? It simply means the overall pony motif will be going away and the site will get a more fitting name not directly related to MLP.

FAQ:
Q: "Will /pony/ be deleted?"
A: No. All pony related content will remain and be allowed, we will just not be making it the main focus.

Q: "What is going to happen to /ef/, /oat/ and /chat/?"
Nothing. These boards will remain as "general purpose" boards not directly related to any fandoms.

Q: "So what is actually going to change?"
A: To be honest, not all that much. We will probably just be adding boards related to other fandoms if we see a rising interest in them. All the things you currently have shouldn't be going away.

So, its been over a week now, and i think we have sorted out everything ITT that we are going to sort out and the compromises have all been made with ample opportunity for everyone in the community to have their say.

Here is the run down:
>There will be a new URL for the site, and using that URL will mean you will see new theming while you are here (TBD)
>"ponychan.net" will remain an active URL and will display the site as it currently stands with no change.
>The boards that currently exist will continue to for the foreseeable future.
>Both URLs will access the same data so posts/boards/ect will be accessible reguardless of which you choose to use so the change is only that of aesthetics and there is no "split".

This way, users can choose if they want the new look, and the new name, and others can continue to use/return to the site they are use to seeing.

Its been a heck of a discussion, but it think we hashed it out well, and i think this is a way to move forward that anyone can reasonably say gives both sides of the debate pretty much 100% what they want. Which is rear, so we should be proud haha.

So, that being the case, this thread will be locked, and we will be moving on.
Stay tuned for more info!

The /Site/ Sticky:
Welcome! This sticky will cover the majority of frequently asked questions as well as provide important information for using the site. Click each box for info.

● Formatting & Hotkeys
While browsing:
  • Q brings up the Quick Reply - if you have it enabled in the Settings.
  • Ctrl+b will make highlighted text bold
  • Ctrl+i will put it in italics
  • Ctrl+s will spoiler your text
  • Ctrl+h will hide your text, creating a [Show] button for people to reveal
  • Ctrl+u will underline it
  • Ctrl + r is for strikethrough
  • [cs][/cs] will create Comic Sans text
  • [tt][/tt] will create Typeface font
  • [shy][/shy] will create smaller text
  • [rcv][/rcv] will create larger text and activate the royal canterlot voice wordfilter
  • Red bold headings are obtained by placing two equal signs (==) on each side of ==your text== (On one line only)
  • [url] function - you can make hyperlinks in the following manner: [url=http://google.com]Click here[/url]
  • On /pony/, /fan/ and /rp/, you can edit your posts or threads. Click the checkbox of the post you want to edit and click the [Edit] button in the bottom right corner of the page to edit it.
  • You can use an automated "dice" by entering [XdY], X being the number of dice and Y the number of sides each dice has. For example [2d6] will throw two 6-faced dice.
  • You can also make additions or subtractions, useful for roleplaying functions. For example [1d20-5]
  • Thread watching: There is a 'Watch' link at the bottom right of every OP. When it's clicked, a 'Watcher' menu will appear near the Settings tab. You will be alerted of new messages in watched threads.
  • Cross--thread linking is done as such: >>>/test/47
  • Catalog: each board has a "Catalog" which will show you all the threads currently on every page of each board. For example: catalog for /anon/. The catalog will show you a preview of each thread's OP text, the OP image as well as the number of replies in each thread.
● Settings
Ponychan has a Settings button on the right of its navbar. Here are some of the features it provides:
  • The "style" field allows you to use different themes.
  • Show mature content threads: Will reveal the automatically hidden mature threads on certain boards. Off by default.
  • Treat mature images as spoilers: Spoilers images in mature threads, when threads are unhidden.
  • Reveal Spoilers will bypass the Spoilers system (Images and text)
  • Navbar stays at the top: "Sticks" the navbar to the top of the page. It is off by default: the navbar scrolls down with you.
  • Use QR for posting: Highly recommended, the Quick Reply allows you to post in a thread without scrolling to the top every time. Q brings it up.
  • Show "You" on links to your posts: Will put the text (You) after a reply directed to a post you have made.
  • Reply notifier sound: A sound alert is played when someone replies to you in a thread- if you have the thread opened.
  • Filtered Names and Filtered Tripcodes: Prevents post made with those names or tripcodes from being seen
● Hash-tags
Ponychan allows you to create hash-tags, which are a tagging feature.
You create a #Tag of your choice like so: [#Text of your choice].This is important for some boards like /rp/ and /anon/: it is also how you mark a thread as mature. On mature boards, a button is available when making the OP to add this tag automatically. The special tag [#Anon] removes the ability for replies to have names.

Note: Any NSFW image posted in a non-Mature thread is a rule violation and will be treated as such. Please tag your threads properly for the benefit of all users

## DeveloperCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 11267Sticky[View]

I've set up a bugtracker so that issues/bugs/feature requests can be consolidated into one place to make it easier to keep track of, rather than having to watch multiple threads. One of the nice things about BitBucket is that you don't need to have an account in order to add an issue. If you have a BitBucket account and want to post with that, that's up to you.

https://bitbucket.org/ponychan/ponychan-tinyboard/issues?status=new&status=open

Some things to keep in mind:
1. Make your issue submissions clear and concise.
2. If you need to submit a screenshot, the issue tracker has an option to upload files.
3. The issue tracker is only for actual issues/bugs/feature requests/etc. Any frivolous issues or shitposts will be deleted.
4. Also, this should be used only for issues with Ponychan's code/strucure, not ban requests and user complaints and whatnot. Keep that stuff on /site/.

Also as it turns out, I'm a big dummy and forgot to re-enable the issue tracker on the repo, so if you run into an issue that's likely with the TinyBoard stuff itself (JavaScript, PHP, or HTML stuff, not nginx errors), you can use the link in the OP.

Ponychan Dev tools question AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 17112[View]

>>11962
From this old thread about the Ponychan Dev Tools, I was testing some things based on it. I don't know where to ask this, but as that old thread was up there then I suppose I could ask here too. How exactly can I deploy the imageboard software on web hosting, I got it running on the localhost with virtual box and vagrant, but I don't know how to get it up online. This is for a small project I'm developing, but I'm new in all of this, especially with the part of the software.

Oh shit I forgot about that thread lol. That guy wrote a lot of words in an autism fit after I made an admittedly dumb oopsie, but really that thread is useless and doesn't have anything that isn't in the README.md in the repo so I wouldn't bother.

As for deployment, while you technically can deploy it on your server mostly as-is, I don't recommend it, since you'll probably want to make some changes, like replacing the site name, slogan, and various resources to suit your site. For deployment, I'd look at /vagrant/bootstrap.sh in the repo to see what packages are required and what configuration needs to be done to make it usable with php and nginx. You'll obviously want to change some things for your server, like setting a MySQL password and a few other things. Eventually I might create a Docker container to make this kind of thing easier, but that's not a priority right now.

Thanks, and in terms of the type of server/deployment, it's better a VPS or a dedicated one for this, and after setting things up, this procedure could be done as easy as dropping some files on Cpanel, or it's better that I use a Linux machine for it.

But I would hereby request that the classic red cross white background England flag be added as a flag choice/option on /ef/

I do consider myself an Englishman and it would be pretty neat to represent my country

.... And I guess while you are at it you could also add a Scotland flag for our Scottish friend too



And a Northern Ireland (which is like the england flag but with a red hand in it it's easy to find on google) and Wales one too if you have the time, although I don't think we have any of those posters mind
