Alright! I'm feeling better. Flu is almost gone. Ready to do some long-needed overhaul to Nordchan.

As many have pointed out, Nordchan was running over http for its first month or so.
The reason for this was simple negligence. I've now acquired and setup our SSL certificate and setup redirect rules so http direct to https on both .net and .com
You should be aware that I plan to out-phase the .com domain. So if you're using that you may wanna get comfy with .net instead. Google also heavily penalizes websites that doesn't use HTTPS, so now we're a bit better set.

>IDs are also now highlighted in a different color to make them stand out more from the rest of the info. Ideally I'd like to make it more /pol/-like where IDs are different colors based on IP, however that's coming… later.

>Dates have been replaced by a relative time.
>Banner has been renamed to averycutelittleimage.php and we have (shamelessly) stolen the lainchan banner script. This should dodge ad blockers (was blocked previously when called banner.php).
>Added a "Catalog" button at the page enumerator at the top of the page so you don't have to scroll all the way down.
>Added a 404 page that isn't shit, the button on it takes you back to wherever you came from.
>And as previously mentioned SSL.

I'd recommend everyone clears cache to see board styling updates

Adding cache busting in the next batch of updates. Thanks fren.

Are you the same anon who has contributed to the vichan/tinyboard repo?

25f90 No.74

dunno which anon that would be.
i am fairly experienced with vichan and it's development though.

because im nice, i'd recommend getting apache+openssl upgraded for HTTP2 and TLS1.3.
HTTP2 is great, you should read up on it.

If you have an e-mail or something i'd love to discuss what you recommend doing in 2020

With vichan being defunct, and php 7.4 breaking everything.

I'm currently running OpenIB and PHP 7.1 (9san.ch)

All the new software (lynx) is horrible to look at and not at all better than our age old rusty, but working and easily modifiable software.
OpenIB is beyond broken though. vichan is a lot easier to get running properly than OpenIB and it's basically the same thing anyways minus a few features (like board creation). And as you can see on 8kun, OpenIB looks disgusting by default lol.. I'm new to OpenIB, but I've worked with vichan for many years.

Also you gotta change the youtube embed to https now, cause mixed content (http+https) is bad and my browser blocks the embed iframe from loading.

If you're not using anything important in Apache I would also recommend nginx because it doesn't look like HTTP/3 is coming to Apache any time soon(?), whereas nginx already has it. Most browsers have http3 disabled by default though so it doesn't matter yet nor does it really make a huge difference for smaller sites, but it is a speed increase available soon.


Honestly besides setting up some JS like quick-reply, ajax(based) and stuff like that, there's not that much you need to do. A community is much more important than anything else.

Oh nice! I've been on 9san before (can't remember how I got there).

I think what I'll do is start looking into a lot of the protocol improvements you've recommended, and upgrade to a fork of vichan that still has active maintainers plus some of the more essential quality-of-life stuff. OpenIB looks neat.

With regards to community being the most important aspect, I agree. I try not to intervene with anything and just sort of let the conversation run, which is why there's fairly lax rules. The only times I'll intervene is if we get flooded from foreginers with useless threads as it dramatically lessens the board quality for those it is intended for.

Thanks so much for the recommendations norwayanon. <3

Also fixed content mixing error. Thanks for pointing that out. I thought all embed scripts had // (autoprotocol) set.

Are you running this board on Windows? Why?

For now it's running on the same machine (isolated though) as I run my C# (.NET) experiments on (things that take days to run), that's also the reason we're currently being hosted on Canadian soil. A server move to U.S. a Linux/nginx setup is coming.

I've retrofitted a few things in vichan to be compatible with the environment we're running in, so board functionality is the same.
