I've been unsure what needs to be done to Tinyboard in order to make it a better software for our site.

In response, I'm creating this thread so you – the user, can make suggestions for me to implement into the site. Feel free to request anything. Hell, if you don't like what I've done, you can tell me that too. I'll listen.

The source code that we use for AwsumChan can be found at https://github.com/Circlepuller/Tinyboard

How can I create a "secret" board only visible to mods/admins?

Is there a board you feel belongs on AwsumChan? Tell us here and we'll make it a reality (or at least a temporary one).

[We won't honor your request if it's trash or completely illegal though.]

I do have a lifestyle after all

Yes hello, this is the meta board. Here, you can talk about AwsumChan, or ask the staff/users questions.

There was a short bit of downtime where I upgraded the server to the latest version of Debian. After upgrading some packages, the site should be running smoothly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

any workaround?


Are you using reCAPTCHA by any chance? Just trying to troubleshoot possible causes of this.


Nope. It's installed locally from xampp.

Did you see Vichan now has a new maintainer? and he seems to want to actually work on Vichan.
I myself am happy and can't wait for the huge mess that Vichan currently is to be slowly fixed with time.

I feel Tinyboard/vichan's biggest issues aren't easily fixed, they're more deeply rooted in the design. Does this effect the end user however? No, not really. I am glad to see there's someone on the same boat with updating the codebase though and I hope to see it continue into the foreseeable future.

h00j seems to have done a solid job at adding Composer, etc. to vichan - although he probably could have cherry-picked commits and saved himself some time, hah. If I was ever approached to make a collaborative effort, I'd be down. I'm honestly really bad at getting a solidifying a plan and it's been somewhat of a writer's block whenever I have the time to sit down and work on things.


A little bug report:

>Undefined array key "exif_stripped"

The above error happens when posting image on PHP8.
(Have you not already upgraded to 8 here and meet this problem before us?)
Flipping $config['strip_exif'] doesn't help.


This "exif_stripped" occurs only twice here so it's easy to locate.
I can only guess that "@" is the culprit or something, but not pro enough to figure how PHP8 breaks this or how to fix accordingly. So please help. Thank you.


Thanks for the heads-up, I have a fix coming in the next commit. (a lot of the code base >implies array keys exist, rather than actually checks for them - this is inherently bad)


One more:
Visiting search.php throws this error:
>Using the "Twig_Node_Expression_Constant" class is deprecated since Twig version 2.7, use "Twig\Node\Expression\ConstantExpression" instead.
All my composer stuff is updated to the latest.


This is an issue related to Twig's i18n extension. I don't think there will be an immediate fix for this as it'd require a complete rewrite of Tinyboard's translation functions to use Symfony's translation component libraries and file format. It's quite the hurdle to do alone, but I would be all for someone helping out with it.

My only quick fix for this at the moment is to just not use search.php. I know it's a pretty shitty way to handle this but it's an issue that requires fixing a much bigger "issue" to fix it.

Sorry for both the delayed response and the sorta mediocre answer.

I don't know if this is the correct board to ask this, but I really can't understand why this error appears, should I configure a php file? thanks community!


Yes, the AwsumChan theme expects $config['categories'] to be set. Look in inc/config.php for info on how it should be set.

Also, consider using a newer version of Tinyboard, I can't guarantee compatibility with older releases.


Thanks. Could you send me the link of the version that you recommend? I would be very grateful.

When someone is in the admin panel, under recent posts/erase local data, when I click on erase local data it does nothing. What is that for?

2)would it be possible to have it so only a subject is required? I was thinking that doing so could possibly reduce server load and also make things easier for the user. Like if someone wants to just upload an image, if the body is required then the person just usually enters random keys in the comment like wsfr. Just an idea.

When one disables requiring anything, it is possible to just press send and it goes through as a blank post like in the pic. Would it be possible to put error correcting in there to prevent that? Also if one selects a file and also a youtube embed is entered, it they will not both show up in the post. Maybe error handling telling the person they can't do a file and embed?


Tinyboard already allows you to change the requirements of an OP post:
$config['force_body_op'] and $config['force_image_op']



No shit. But that's not what the question asked. Never mind anyway, php is for faggots, I found an imageboard coded in GoLang.


Lol okay

Perhaps Naix?


I currently own 0.00052 Bitcoin and slowly growing, Bitcoin will reach 100K in 2024, by then I will probably have like 0.008 so 800 dollars yeehaw.


what the fuck I posted this on /cr/


You sure? Posting on other boards, including >>>/cr/ seems to work fine.


I probably fucked up myself

Is your fork more stable or secure than reg vichan? What are the benefits of your fork over mainstream vichan? Also do you do php work? If i end up using your fork on my site would you be a consultant for it? Just easy shit like best setup options, a bit of help setting up cache, and very minor style changes. It should be super easy for you, and it would pay good.

I haven't tried RocketLoader. I might look into it since it's free though.

As for directory changes, it's possible although you'll have to rebuild the HTML for the entire board as well as move all uploaded files and thumbnails to the new directory. You'll also have to change a lot of database entries like you said, but that /should/ be it. Tinyboard (and most imageboard software) don't intend for you to change the board URI anytime down the road.

While you do share a bunch of valid points, I don't see PHP as /that/ bad. I definitely agree that Cloudflare is not to be relied upon as a tool to prevent intrusion or dramatically increase performance. It does help smaller websites handle an increased traffic load though, which is really handy for those using a budget VPS or shared hosting package who have content that reaches a large amount of people. From my experience, people who use Cloudflare on top of a Tinyboard site generally use it to have the static content served reliably, not to "speed up" the dynamic content served over PHP.

As for the PHP hate - legacy PHP apps have been historically badly coded, easily susceptible to attacks, and inefficient. I wouldn't blame the language, but the poor code ethics that seemed to surround it for the longest time. Node.js might have better general performance but NPM has become CPAN shit show 2.0, with a lot of inexperienced developers flooding their community with really poor code (gee, wonder what that sounds like). Call me wrong, but PHP 7 has been something long needed - forcing developers to patch vague and broken code that miraculously worked in PHP 4 and 5. Sure, we might not like it, but it's for the betterment of PHP-based software.


No shit, Sherlock. Come back when your perfect project finally has these:
1. Data compatible or at least easy to migrate from/to Tb/vi;
2. Customizabiliy on par with inc/config.php, especially spamfilter and autoban regexes;
3. Platform genericity (RoR, Node, Go, whatever the next meme trend is, still hasn't beaten the popularity of plain old LA/EMP)

Regarding CDN, yes I just need cache for my cheap hosting, "security" be damned. (My nginx is configured to never serve directly outside though.) The extras are just a flip of switch away anyway so it's a loss not to explore and make full use of them.


what happened to the patreon? take my money!! and fix it, or tell me why it's not working if it should be. i want ALL THE FEATURES


>Take ANY php web app, and it can be coded to be far more efficient in node js
just, no, https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/



The Patreon got deactivated due to lack of activity. I would reactivate it, but it would require another audit by Patreon staff and subsequent transaction activity.
