R: 9 / I: 2 / P: 1 [R][G][-]View thread I'll get a proper intro sticky up soon, but for the time being, here's an summary about this board.
This board is for the discussion of, and contribution to, 8chan's codebase. I made this board because, in my opinion, /meta/ is filled with a bunch of crossboard nonsense in relation to coding 8chan and the issues page for the main repo is quite cluttered and disorganized. Feel free to bring up any ideas or concerns (be it management/security/aesthetics/etc) as long as it pertains to the technology behind 8chan's operation.
Allow me this complain. But would it be too much a crash to have threads not be deleted automatically in an imageboard to the IB culture?
I think it would really benefit conversation to know what you said won't just be gone soon. To be able to search for threads about certain topics which are long-running. Why doesn't that work? Too many images, too big a space requirement? Do we just like that all we say is gone sooner or later?
This is an issue I submitted to Github a while ago that sadly got ignored. When you are previewing an external thread, it seems all the thumbnails are also being downloaded. As you can imagine, this causes considerable delay when previewing a large thread.
I post here in the hope that someone can suggest a fix.
R: 1 / I: 1 / P: 2 [R][G][-]View thread Is there a reason why we can't have spoilered images generate thumbnails? There have been a number of requests across boards that I've seen about having an "unspoiler images" option available. Is it a storage issue, or just that it hasn't been programmed into the site yet?
I have searching for like a month to have the best imageboard script but I didn't find one untill I found infinite code. But I don't want that users can create their own board is there an possibilty to dissable that?
When you have too much text in a box, it will truncate it and add a line saying "Post too long. Click here to view the full text."
However, sometimes it does this on the last line. Considering that the "post too long" msg actually takes up 2 lines, it should perhaps take how much text is left in the post into consideration, rather than cutting it off at a hard #.
So as per the configuration menu I set up my custom codes for all of the formatting options. Spoiler is like dis, bold is [b]like dis[/b] etc. Unfortunately it seems that no matter what, the site will not accept my magic words and continues to expect default syntax.
What would it take to get sophisticated code tags?
Something I dislike about code tags both on Halfchan and Fullchan is their lack of flexibility. Fullchan's code tags eat tabs (whereas Halfchan's converts them to four spaces), and neither of them is syntax aware. Both of them will highlight keywords arbitrarily as long as they're used in some sort of programming language, and will treat certain symbols as comments or quotes regardless of what language they're in. This makes them very bad for Lisp based languages, which often use single quotes and # characters to represent symbols and characters. I think we can do better than that.
Rather than our current approach to code tags, perhaps we could do something like <code lang="C"></code> (but as BBcode obviously), and have it perform syntax highlighting based on that language. If no language is provided, it would do the default action it currently uses (except maybe not eating tab characters and looking like total shit on mobile).
What would it take to get something like this implemented?
