/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›

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

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.

Well you'd have to change the configuration stuff obviously, but it's not super complicated to get it set up on a VPS. I have no idea what a cpanel is though. You could probably also use a Docker container with some work, but it's not set up for that right now, so I have no idea how much it would take.

Also, just for the record, if you're going to use our fork of TinyBoard, I'd wait a little bit before you go live. I'm working on fixing up some stuff, like unfucking our flag implementation (which is almost done) and fixing the seriously out of date JavaScript junk. I'll post in this thread when that's done.

Alright, it should be good to go
