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'd argue that vichan strays away from the goals that its predecessor Tinyboard wishes to achieve. vichan has a lot of "fat" added on that could be just done through the theme system (if not, it probably did not need it anyway.)

I've had a fair bit of experience with PHP outside of Tinyboard, but I'd argue my biggest contributions to any software project are to this one.

As for consultancy, I can't really guarantee dedicated availability but I'd be more than glad to try helping you out with setting up a Tinyboard installation on your website.

I've set up a Patreon for making donations to the development of this software, located at https://www.patreon.com/tinyboard


Not OP.

I've been running infinity (as in https://github.com/vichan-devel/infinity) over PHP 7.1 so far.

I plan to set up a clean new site basing on your Tinyboard over 7.3/7.4. Is it possible to migrate old boards and posts?

To be specific, how much of the database schema is still compatible? Does it require lots of manual modification?


From what I'm looking at, the Infinity DB schema doesn't look different from vichan's at all.

If this is the case, it should be a straightforward transition. However keep in mind hotwheels/ctrlcctrlv didn't intend for users of Infinity to migrate to Tinyboard/vichan, as they are different software in terms of behavior.

To make sure you have a smooth ride, I'd backup the production site and try running a transition on a local machine first if I were you, just so your chances of having a bad day are reduced. If you notice any errors trying it, feel free to put them in this thread.

As for PHP support, I can guarantee compatibility with 7.3, and will support 7.4 as soon as it released on distros.


Right now I'm implementing archives, so look forward to that.


More questions:

What do you think about CloudFlare's "optimization" options like Rocket Loader etc.? Would they play well with Tinyboard webpages, or screw up and make things worse?

Is there still a lot of "inline" <script>s and <style>s in Tinyboard? CSP complains about them a bit.


It should be obvious- VERY obvious, that a simple imageboard should not require such a HUGE amount of files and code. There is lots of illegal shit embedded in there. Basically, ALL chan sites are honeypots to run the dark net cp sites.


Using Cloudflare on here, I haven't noticed any issues. I can't speak for Rocketloader or any of CF's paid offerings. Worth trying on a site mirror though.

Tinyboard unfortunately does use a fair bit of inline scripts and style tags. Luckily CSP does allow you to whitelist them - see our CSP for an example.

I think you're a bit paranoid. If you're a firm believer that imageboards should have an incredibly small codebase, just go use TinyIB. Although I can acknowledge that a fair bit of *chans on the dark web are harbors of illegal content. Sad.
Also, please don't try to impersonate staff, lmao
