That isn't an imageboard script, it's a combination of an imageboard script and an old registration-only forum like vBulletin. (Just try posting to it as Anonymous.)

Oh, waah, waah. It doesn't require registration at all; it just doesn't let you post with a blank "Name" field. Thirty second Ochiba hack to allow anonymous posting:

  1. Open includes/post.php
  2. Find line 53:

  3. Replace it with these two lines:

  4. Save

Note that I haven't actually tested this, but I don't see why it shouldn't work. Either way, you can still just put random characters in the "Name" field. That's nothing like a reg-only board.

it will still give you an obnoxious Javascript warning when you post, to the tune of "Are you SURE you don't want to add a tripcode to your post? Using a tripcode gives you access to fun added features such as constant flamewars about your character! Click 'OK' to generate a tripcode for you and attach it to all your posts, or 'Cancel' to just stop posting because you're not good enough for my image board."

I'd like that. Wakaba can run in Japanese, too. There are a few untranslated strings, but mostly in the admin panel...

That's strange. It seems 2ch is having some server problems. As of today, I sometimes cannot post to threads with my foreign IP and sometimes I cannot view whole threads. Mostly I get sent to this site:

I was also thinking that maybe you should provide some Japanese text as a short introduction on your website.

That's not server problems, that's

trevorchan has come a long way from it's beginnings, it's actually a decent script now

58 Name: Anonymous : 2007-08-23 10:57 ID:Arnj8lNu [Del]


Trevorchan looks decent on the outside. I've been working on my own message-board script for almost a year, and I wanted to see how TJ implemented certain things just to get some ideas about how to approach them myself, and that's when I saw the worst aspect of Trevorchan (imo): the code. Trevorchan can't possibly be efficient for the fact that the code is an absolute mess. It has that feel to it of, "Hey this is my first non-trivial PHP program."

If he were to just trash it and re-write it from a clean slate then he would probably have a solid program. He has good ideas, just no understanding of good code or design.

59 Name: Anonymous : 2007-08-23 16:05 ID:vUyIRoGj [Del]

Well. You gotta learn somehow.

A lot of people say a lot of sauce of a lot of software is bad. It's almost like functionality is inversely proportional to design. I actually wonder how good/bad my own code is; I'm sure if a better programmer than I looked at it he would see a lot of room for improvement.

60 Name: Anonymous : 2007-08-24 08:20 ID:Heaven [Del]

That's always the case with any software -- no matter how good you think it is, there's always room for improvement, optimization, a refactoring to result in cleaner code, etc. somewhere, and generally the more experience someone has programming, the easier these improvements will be to find. But then again, sometimes a junior programmer straight out of college can find something that the long-term dev team members never noticed, just because they've gotten so used to the codebase that they just accept it as what it is rather than thinking how to improve it. It's not always the result of bad programming.

The distinction is when the improvements are highly obvious, like moving code that's been copied and pasted seven or eight times into a separate function call, not making three copies of the same variable that each only get used one time, etc.

64 Name: Anonymous : 2007-08-27 07:03 ID:5AOxs2fY [Del]

Trevorchan/Kusaba is not an imageboard script.

Trevorchan/Kusaba is a 4chan emulator.

I mean...blotters, threadwatchers and stickies? What the fuck is that shit.

65 Name: Anonymous : 2007-08-27 16:37 ID:Heaven [Del]

I don't use Trevorchan because I believe the code is shitty and so is the script execution.

But it's just plain dumb to not consider it an imageboard script. There are administrators out there that want such features (stickies, better management panel, thread closing, etc) and they may not have the know-how to hack it into what you consider to be a real imageboard script.

66 Name: Anonymous : 2007-08-27 18:02 ID:Heaven [Del]

That was a deep and thought provoking post.

So does anyone know what features that sort of new fork of Kareha (think its called Matsuba) has?
All I remember is that it had stickies; But I can't imagine someone would rename Kareha after adding fucking stickies.

75 Name: Storlek!desu/4y/Xg : 2007-12-11 19:43 ID:Heaven [Del]

Author thereof. It's not a fork of anything, though it's taken a lot of stuff from wakaba, few things from kareha, a couple odd things here and there from other boards. (and various other new features of dubious usefulness, such as subback for imageboards and a disturbingly overengineered markup syntax)

(only one board has stickies, and it's user-driven, so if you hate them just go unstick everything...)

Multi-threaded (process-wise) Python imageboard software. The first of its kind, if I am not mistaken. It's not ready for the public yet, but I'm very glad to say that the project has went without problems.

In case you missed it, after a stable release is made I will be speaking with the site owners using kusaba and try to convince them to make the jump to the new software.

The front end of the software resembles wakaba more so than kusaba, with the removal of the extra features.

Looks like an ugly version of Futaba/Futallaby, and that's most likely what it is.

That's because it likely is Futaba, just with a different style of generated pages. Even the footer looks stock...

It's a translation of the Japanese script with things added to it, like the ability to tell it how many threads to display on the front page, define namefilters and wordfilters, and set the stylesheet in the config file.

At least it's in english...

Author thereof. Wasn't expecting it to be posted over here least not until I decided to do it.

It's not exactly a finished project but the 1.5 release is compressed, packaged, and ready for download I guess.


I lol'd because it's true. ;__;

I originally wanted to code somewhat of a PHP counterpart to kareha, with a few features added and a few features removed, but after a while I just wanted to code an imageboard/BBS script that worked and ran efficiently/securely, despite the fact that it indeed was coded in PHP. It orignally ran comments through a MySQL database but after realizing the database structure for the boards sucked ass I just switched to log files.

I'm going to be releasing modifications to the script that can be implemented by users if they want, instead of shoving it down their throats like another popular hybrid script (>>80 Hi Trevor!), like a catalog mode, album mode, subback for imageboards, etc. There are some features I'm 50/50 about, like adding the ability to edit posts, hide threads etc. I mean, they seem like somewhat decent features, but I don't want to end up masturbating with javascript.


Only thing I'll ask you about is if your PHP 2ch textboard was by any chance based heavily off of the freestyle BBS script (from the creators of gazouBBS).

Nevermind. The question's been answered.

90 Name: Cudder !MhMRSATORI : 2008-08-03 10:58 ID:Heaven [Del]

Do we really need another English version of Futaba?

REchan e0 (never officially released), which I used in the first incarnation of REchan, was essentially Futaba translated into English. The one-script-per-board model gets very difficult to maintain if you have multiple boards.

91 Name: Anonymous : 2008-08-03 13:16 ID:AxcUmPh3 [Del]

I'd not bother with futaba except for feeling nostalgic towards it, and having seen people whine about MySQL being too difficult for them... and most of the image board software I see in English is heaps of files and multiple conf edits and all sorts of TrevorSaba type bullshit that actually makes editing several scripts and ftp'ing several folders and visiting them with a browser simpler by comparison.

I consider Wakaba/Kareha far superior to anything like this I've seen in PHP, but I've had webhosts who didn't even have Perl installed, so I needed something for my boards.

tl,dr: It's a hobby, it's fun, and I like sharing it with anyone who likes it. I don't see any of the innovative personages here coming up with anything better than all the scripts they say suck, but if they do, I'll be enthusiastic about their stuff too.

92 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-04 02:12 ID:Heaven [Del]


I don't know if you were talking to me but I'll some questions anyways.

>The one-script-per-board model gets very difficult to maintain if you have multiple boards.

If there's one thing Trevor did right with his scripts it was the ability to create multiple boards with one installation, making it easy to create multiple boards.

I wanted to duplicate that ease with my scripts but still stay true to the futaba style of one board per script, so that's why I've made most of the board creation automated within an admin panel. You can choose whether or not to make either an imageboard or textboard and it will pretty much do the copying of boards and creation of directories for you, all you have to do is visit the script after creation and it will render.

I however do agree with you on the fact that one script per board can get a little irritating, but the reason I left it like that was so making changes to one board was still easy.


>I don't see any of the innovative personages here coming up with anything better than all the scripts they say suck...

I agree to a certain extent and lol'd.

I agree on both the creation of boards from the admin panel and the boards being changed individually, I really like the idea of being able to make new boards without having to bother with ftp, but I've stuck with single-board scripts because of the ease of editing. Most of the repetitive bullshit can be avoided simply by giving the boards some files in common, it's as easy as typing "../", really.

Oh, and thank you so much for showing me your fuukaba script, i feel less ronery in my hobbies now. XD

No problem ^^. Although I don't know if you meant to say fuukaba, because that in itself is a different script entirely, just based off the futaba code. That script is Gnac's business.

And for those of you interested, I've been working with javascript and I made some interesting changes to the suigintou UI. Nothing ZOMGLOLBBQ INNOVATIVE, but it looks nice.

> If there's one thing Trevor did right with his scripts it was the ability to create multiple boards with one installation, making it easy to create multiple boards.

Actually, no. People create too many boards. They want to run their own 4chan, not their own board, and that's a bad idea. It dilutes participation, and is redudant, and it makes your board die.

The successful boards are pretty much single boards.

99 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-05 20:27 ID:Heaven [Del]


I understand what you're getting at. People shouldn't be making more than one or two boards because then they end up duplicating boards that already exist (everybody has a /b/ nowadays) and just end up creating a clone of 2chan or of 4chan.

What I was trying to get at with that statement was that Trevor had a good idea but terribly implemented it. Most people who set out to clone these boards won't stop until they realize it's a bad idea to create 60 boards with one script, but with Trevosuaba they'll hardly ever notice.

Hence why with my script it pretty much just creates a directory and moves the needed board script/directories into it, so eventually they'll realize they have 30 directories of boards, cycling away at their host's CPU with no one posting in hardly any of them. In other words, the board creation function was made for the people who like the wakaba style of installation, but need more than one board and hate duplicating directories via FTP and/or control panel.


No, I mean, I know what the script you're refering to is (it's in fact named fuukaba), but I think you have me mixed up with someone else (Gnac/Ikitsumatatsu) ^^.

100 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-05 20:36 ID:Heaven [Del]

>of 2chan

I mean the Futaba Channel, just to clear up any confusion that might cause in the future.

101 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-10 06:27 ID:Heaven [Del]

Also note, I redid the board structure on my scripts so it's easier to update multiple boards at once. I've sort of moved away from the one-script-per-board model as it indeed was getting to be unbearable to manage, like Cudder so aptly illustrated above. Each board now calls upon the same set of scripts to give them their skin, instead of each board having it's own cluttered into one script. A config script is also included for single board modifications, like the title, manager mode password, etc. As such, you only have to make your edits to the skin scripts and then just rebuild the boards' caches, unlike originally making you apply the modifications to every single board first.

Not that anybody here really cares, but still, thought that I might as well keep posted.

102 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-10 06:34 ID:Heaven [Del]


And if I may say so myself the script performs a decent amount quicker than it has...probably since I started working on it. Also noticed it cycles the CPU less and is taking up less server-space than it did before (obviously).

Alright, now I'm done with my spamming.

103 Name: Anonymous : 2008-08-13 13:41 ID:Heaven [Del]

Yes, arranging the css files and stuff like that with the config file is a big step towards making it all so much easier.

Might as well take advantage of what's there to take advantage of, I mean, they didn't come up with the idea of putting all those variables into a file included in each script for nothing, you know...

Anything that saves excessive work in updating a site is w00ty, regardless of how few or how many boards you have.

An aside on that subject: I do agree with !WAHa.06x36 about too many sites having too many unnecessary/redundant/already-done-to-death boards... I had a guy on my board asking for advice about his site, and he didn't seem to understand through multiple posts that all I was telling him to do was to have one news board instead of seven of them... I mean, come on, boards have threads for a reason, there's no need to make a board for each category of something that could be just fine occupying one board.

I think that the first thing that happens to anyone who gets ahold of a script for making multiple boards is that they immediately try to make 60 boards so they'll look all big and wonderful, and then they wind up with 59 boards to watch over for spam and cp, and nobody posts anything worthwhile because it's just a big empty site and no one will get anything out of their post. So, all these huge new sites get is people seeing a big empty wall to vandalize, as it were.

My friend's site has an image board for its main topic, a random board just for stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else, a text board for discussion, and an oekaki board for drawing. Four boards is enough for all of their needs.

My site is a single text board, it's all I need.

I really think that when people build hueg sites in their attempts to replace 4chan, all they're doing is making more clutter on the net, and I don't think they realize that 4chan became so big BECAUSE there weren't so many sites like it. You can't build an empty mega-mall and expect people to shop there, let alone come back.

Nobody's mentioned img0ch, it's the script used on nico nico douga's text boards. I think one of my sorta side projects for this semester will be taking a stab at translating it.

Either way I hope you find the time to translate it. Good luck, etc.

Also, side note, I'm currently getting shafted by my host so until that stops I won't be able to upload the new version of my script that, well, fixes things and implements things, to be completely straightfoward. In other words, you might as well not even bother going to the webserver.

There are enough english futaba translations floating around on the internet that give the same features. If you're going to bother making another one, you mind-as-well give new features to offer. Otherwise it's a waste of time.

I happen to be having hosting problems too...

My script (s0) doesn't have any provision for creating boards through the browser, you have to use FTP and edit text files. The global script does handle the post requests for all the boards though.

From looking through the sites listed at the Overchan, most of them seem to follow the same theme: random, anime, porn, more anime, news/events, even more anime, and more porn. Is this just because of the demographic? Looking at 2ch, it has a board for pretty much any topic, and they're all rather active. My site has (well... had for the moment) Hardware Analysis and Reverse Engineering boards, which I haven't seen at any other sites on the o/ch, and yet they remain pretty inactive. From this I gather the English "channer" demographic seems to be pretty much concentrated on porn and anime...

That's how most people I've met who use image boards got into using image boards. 4chan's mascot is a manga character, I mean, think about it.

I still can't believe people on 4chan act like it's a wapanese invasion or something all the time, I mean, the whole site was made by people who wanted to "talk about anime."

I think it just goes with the culture, like furfags and cats.

>My site has (well... had for the moment) Hardware Analysis and Reverse Engineering boards, which I haven't seen at any other sites on the o/ch, and yet they remain pretty inactive.

Stuff like that is too specific topic for a board, IMHO. All of that can be covered in /code/ and /prog/, which is probably why you aren't getting alot of traffic.

112 Name: Anonymous : 2008-08-23 01:31 ID:Heaven [Del]

unrelated to the topic of diversity of boards the site also got a bad name with the /code/ and /prog/ types after some botched promotional threads. what i'm trying to say is that rechan isn't the best example of a "unique" board because luck has worked against the site just too much.

Thanks, I had some backup serverspace on another (free >.>) host that I'm using, but if I'm ever in a need of hosting again I'll make sure to hit you up.

I released v2.5 of suigintou, this is probably the only release that I actually could even consider endorsing using, as the others, well, are lacking in a lot of convenient functions. Things that I included in 2.5 like reflink parsing, noko, being able to post text only replies without having to tick an "omg I'm not posting an image" checkbox, auto-linking, no longer required passwords, name/e-mail field remembered by javascript cookies, etc. I'm currently shacking up over at and I hope they don't shaft me as well.


I'm going to agree with this guy to an extent. Rechan probably would've gotten a lot more activity if /code/ and /prog/ had recepted the threads better, but eh, what are you going to do?...except, try to do your best to get traffic flowing, I guess.

None the less, a completely POSIX compliant OS handed into the public domain does sound like an extremely interesting topic, at least for the moment, but that's besides the point entirely.

115 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-24 08:58 ID:Heaven [Del]


Eh, the noko functionality is rather imitated by a feature that does the same thing, but instead has you tick a checkbox marked "Noko" in the postbox instead of inputting "noko" in the e-mail field.

Hopefully most of you know what reflink parsing is, and as for "no longer required passwords," I mean that I stupidly enabled a function that required posters to supply a password, that function's been disabled so you don't need to post with a password anymore.

Just clearing up some things because I typed that message half-asleep.

117 Name: Anonymous : 2008-08-24 23:19 ID:Heaven [Del]

You seem to have missed translating the error messages, or was this intentional? There's also the temp files --- the ones with a tilde on the end. Do you use emacs?

This looks like some sort of combination of shiichan and futaba, but the fact that you need JavaScript to be enabled to show the post form is a big turn-off.

118 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-08-25 01:31 ID:Heaven [Del]


Yeah, I agree with you actually. It was a style decision I made when I first released the script, but as time goes by I'm starting to grow a bigger and bigger distaste for the style altogether. I was going to overhaul it soon and replace it with a regular futaba layout, but beforehand I just needed to know whether or not other people felt the same. Thanks for being honest, Anonymous.


Yeah, I don't know a lick of Japanese and I couldn't find the futaba english translation, so what I've translated is either from Futallaby, or from what I generally know about what the strings are in english. I could simply just re-write the error messages based on what causes them, but I'd rather just take the time to translate them rather than feel like an ass writing my own custom error messages.

As for the temp files, if they're in there, I'm an idiot because they shouldn't be. Yeah, I use emacs. Go figure.

And yeah, I was actually trying to go for some experimental hybrid of shiichan and futaba when I first started this project, but as time goes on I realize that...uh, it might sound like a good idea but this script would benefit from not being written in PHP. And, as for the post form, that javascript was a style decision I made back when I decided to change the style of the board, and as such it'll be removed when I change the layout back to the regular futaba layout.

Thanks for your honesty as well, Anonymous.

It's like playing a game of "carve your own pathway..."


Some updates.

Most of the untranslated strings have been translated now. Those that haven't were either overlooked or are intentional. There is still some Shift_JIS characters in the script but those in turn were intentional also.

The postbox is now automatically toggled on, you can still unextend/re-extend it, but what counts is that javascript doesn't need to be enabled to post anymore.

I'm currently working on overhauling the style scheme for the usual futaba layout scheme because it looks better (hopefully in other's opinions as well) in comparison. I'll probably still release the other skin, but probably not included within the script compressed archives, maybe as modifications or some crap, I don't know.

And yeah, IPM is me. What the acronym actually expands to is beyond retarded, but I use it because others recognize me by it.

Res page caches added, broken admin panel deprecated, bans now managable by external textfiles, noko, secure tripcodes, admin/mod capcodes, reflink parsing, etc.

A bunch of the crap I've added (or in the case of the admin panel taken out).

This means, yes, it installs more like wakaba now, and yes, I got rid of the stupid board creation function.

Your fortune: Reply hazy, try again

Or futaba, whichever comparison you'd like to make.


130 Name: Anonymous : 2008-09-13 01:35 ID:AxcUmPh3 [Del]

How are you supposed to view people's IP's in order to ban them? The admin panel showed the IP/host so that problem posters could be banned...

I made a script for editing text files, like the ban files, but without a way to view IP's, it's sorta pointless to even have an IP ban file...

131 Name: Anonymous : 2008-09-13 01:37 ID:AxcUmPh3 [Del]

Screw it, I'll just add a checkbox and let the admin/mod pass ban people. Liked "your" script better when it didn't just look like Futaba, though.

another imageboard script...more info there, feedback welcome.

133 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-09-13 12:16 ID:Heaven [Del]



Do you not see the big "Manage" link on top of every board? That's the management panel, in which there are two radio buttons, "Management Panel" and "Manager Post."

The former radio button takes you to a menu for deleting posts, in that menu the host of each poster is listed. Just grab the host from there and plop it in the external datafile for host/IP bans, it's not exactly that hard.

>The admin panel showed the IP/host so that problem posters could be banned...

Uh...that's the management panel. For a while there was a shii-chan like admin panel in this script that I deprecated with this release because most of the features it included were bloat and half of them were broken.

>Liked "your" script better when it didn't just look like Futaba, though.

I really can't tell what you're trying to get at here, but I'll try.

If you're referring to the past look of the script, than that's just personal preference and really, I'm sure most people liked the original futaba look better,

If it's features you're talking about, and you think I just renamed a translated futaba and released, you obviously haven't looked at it at all, because there's a metric fuckton of crap I hacked in.

Res page caches (static html of individual threads)? Post highlighting/quoting/reflink parsing? Secure tripcodes? Noko? Javascript to remember the name and e-mail fields (surprisingly not ganked from wakaba!)? Admin/moderator capcodes? Bans manageable via external datafiles? Ommited image count along with ommited post count? Not having to tick a checkbox that says "lol omg i'm not posting an image" if you want to post an imageless thread? etc.


134 Name: Anonymous : 2008-09-13 13:16 ID:AxcUmPh3 [Del]


Yeah, I'm not stupid, I was 95% asleep. I figgered it out once I did a test install. Sorry for provoking you to incredulity, but admit it, you've been asleep while looking at scripts before too.

May I suggest one little teeny-tiny feature? And a rather Big one too?

  1. Implement Poti Board's edit feature. People can redo their post instead of deleting it if they make a simple mistake in their post. This is something I consider a genuinely useful feature, as it can save a lot of time and messiness on a board.
  2. Rig up an oekaki module for it. Poti Board is the best Futaba-based board script with an oekaki option, but there's a lot of files, it's all in Japanese, and a lot of the config stuff just plain blows. If you could do this with your current version it'd put it way above the rest of the Futaba-based php scripts out there, and I'd be able to replace my Poti Board with your script, and appreciate your efforts forever.

If you could do these two things, you'd rock.

138 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-09-13 14:03 ID:Heaven [Del]


While looking? Hell, I've been asleep while coding...

It's no problem, I just haven't been having the greatest of days today (cleaning up a flooded basement with a wetvac is not my idea of fun...fuck you Illinois weather).

>Implement Poti Board's edit feature. People can redo their post instead of deleting it if they make a simple mistake in their post. This is something I consider a genuinely useful feature, as it can save a lot of time and messiness on a board.

An edit function, eh? Shouldn't be too hard to implement. It'll most likely resemble potiboard's function rather than desuchan's though, since there is such a thing as too much javascript. ;_;

>Rig up an oekaki module for it. Poti Board is the best Futaba-based board script with an oekaki option, but there's a lot of files, it's all in Japanese, and a lot of the config stuff just plain blows.

Hmm, again this shouldn't be too hard to edit in. I'll probably throw it in as a function in suigintou.php by default and let the user decide whether or not to turn it on in the config (0 = no, 1 = yes...).

I'd most likely just use ShiPainter for the applet, is that okay?

139 Name: Anonymous : 2008-09-13 14:18 ID:Heaven [Del]

With more than one page, suigintou 404's on clicking "next".

That'd work just fine, I don't like PaintBBS anyway. ShiPainter is the only applet I use for oekaki drawing.

Yeah, fixing that as we speak, but until it's done I'm taking the archives off the server so nobody else gets broken code.


Alright, cool. I'll see what I can do.

142 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-09-13 20:01 ID:Heaven [Del]


Fixed. Redownload suigintou, and if you have existing boards copy the new suigintou.php and replace the old one with it, then update the board's caches (in the management panel) and the other pages should render.

Now I'll work on your other suggestions.

i dunno. if i dont build in multi board support then running more than one board would require one process per board (~30mb mem) or running via plain cgi which would be slow (although possibly fast enough with caching and a slow board).

it is tempting though, for one thing it makes the code much cleaner and it would discourage people from making loads of unused boards.

151 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2008-09-18 07:04 ID:DWtPbM2E [Del]


The post form is kind of a mess. Too many things going on in there. Also, the part with the checkboxes breaks horribly if the browser window is narrow. Typing things into the normal textboxes may be unintuitive to new users, but it also doesn't overwhelm them with mysterious options they don't understand.

Also, forking seems like the kind of thing that just adds complexity and confusion. One of the key features of this kind of board is the simplicity. You don't need to have an automated option for everything, if you can do it by hand just as easily. Like forking, people could just say "Hey I am starting a new thread on the topic brought up in post so-and-so", and that will be much easier to understand for everyone involved.

With a lack of complex features, people use natural language to describe what they are trying to do instead, and that tends to make things easier for everyone involved.

152 Name: Anonymous : 2008-09-18 09:52 ID:LoRM0ge8 [Del]


i agree the post form is messy/dont look quite right... its a sort of jumble instead of a neat little stack atm.

not sure what you mean about the browser width thing..

im not likely to do 2ch/futaba style tripcodes or sage/noko in the email field - i can see what you mean about making input simpler for new users but i always found these things to be unintuitive. there is a sort of cuteness appeal there, but it just doesnt that much sense - what if you want to give an email (on a few boards i have actually seen people using the email field for that lol) but also want to sage or noko, or what if you want to sage and noko (i have wanted to before). the whole "sage as an attack against the op" thing is kindoff depressing to.

about forking...well you may be right, but i want to try it out. it is configurable anyway.

thanks for the input, i do appreciate it.

I figured with all the changes I'm making to kusaba I might as well just be the one continuing development on the software.

So without further hesitation I am announcing that I am taking up development of kusaba.

I am working toward a kusaba 2.0 release.
I am also working on getting a sourceforge project for it.

But for now you can keep up to date on my progress and planed features through this thread:

155 Name: Anonymous : 2008-09-18 19:08 ID:Heaven [Del]

I'd suggest starting from scratch, you'd have to rewrite the entire thing to make any sort of improvement. The new features look promising though.

156 Name: Eleo!EhVtXXdTd6 : 2008-09-18 19:29 ID:0VFXXHxl [Del]

I've recently made alibi source code public.

I don't know how familiar any of you are with EleoChan but it's a not-extremely-popular imageboard that uses a tagging system instead of traditional boards. It's different in a lot of ways but the same in others. It was originally written in Ruby on Rails but I've ported it to a similar framework called Merb.

The port was actually more like a complete rewrite. As such it's only 80% complete. However, it runs, you can make posts and such, edit them, delete them, and what not. Some of the features are pretty nice if I do say so myself. There are missing features like an error messages for failed posts. I plan to keep working on it eventually but right now I'm busy a lot with school.

The reason for the release is to get my name out there, see if anyone else can add any features, and lastly because EleoChan is soon closing for a variety of reasons.

I'm going to guess that most of you are completely unfamiliar with Ruby, Rails, Merb, Git, GitHub, or the necessary things to get it running on your host (presumably a VPS) such as Mongrel or Phusion Passenger. In my own head, this is a good thing, to prevent a dozen sites on cheapass Dreamhost accounts popping up everywhere. Anyone smart enough to get it running is free to use it. If I had to give one a quick tutorial on how to get it running locally:

  1. install ruby for your OS
  2. install the gems listed in the INSTALL file

2a. There's probably some gems not listed in that that you'll have to install, you'll find out what they are when you try no. 3 and you get exceptions.
3. run the app locally with "merb" in the alibi directory and fool around with the app at localhost:4000 HOPE YOU KNOW HOW TO USE GIT

This is the second time I've done this.

So, when are your improvements going to be released? I like what I see so far. I've managed to make the kusaba news script have the same appearance as 4chan's news script, and I've done the same with FAQ and Rules. I'm not much of a programmer but I have been having quite a measure of success with making the software a little more aesthetically pleasing. If I could help, let me know :D

Currently scrounging webspace from a friend :P

I've left the top part where the logo should be blank, purely because I haven't had time to make one yet. One function that kusaba's news script needs is a limit to how many news posts are displayed, with the rest in an archive akin to 4chan's.

The rules and news page are actually stored in a text file somewhere on my other computer. FAQ and Rules look a little odd as another admin felt the need to try and mess with the CSS. Sideframe is also undergoing re-design whenever I find the time.

I uploaded the first public release today, for anyone who is interested. Note that it's just for testing, as I've been busy with other things and haven't had the time to make it more user friendly for the maintainer or added any non-essential manage features. I'm having a hard time of drawing the line between kusaba's feature overflow and a lack of features.

I'm just curious, but what was your reason for discontinuing Kusaba?
Just sick of Php?

175 Name: tj9991!Dongsf1Nqc : 2008-10-02 01:48 ID:t7mJGTK5 [Del]

A lot of reasons. Being sick of PHP was one of the major ones.

Another major one was constant service to help the people who used kusaba to host a direct 4chan clone, who knew nothing about MySQL/PHP and barely could get the thing installed without my help, let alone maintain boards with it.

After a little experience with Python and a lot more with Haskell (which is my new favorite language) I just can't bear to write PHP any more without thinking "I could do this so much cleaner/easier in Python/Haskell".

Yeah the big thing keeping me stuck on Kusaba is the well designed management panel.

I worked in Wakaba for awhile, and Kusaba just... I don't know, it's easier to manage.

I was disappointed by Kusaba and documentation / support available. I understand that is hart to run project alone. I can understand pre-release code, bugs, little to none support. Its OK.

I was pissed out when you abandoned project like a child. No word of explanation, no warning, nothing. You should keep domain, make statement on the front page and let it run for a year befor closure. Just to make clear what happpened, why you decide to quit.

I will not have high expectation with your new shinny python imageboard. I know that sooner or later you will fall in love to another language and this project will follow Kusaba fate. Good luck, and next time try to quit as mature person.

Trevor knew, as well as everyone else, that a 4chan-in-a-box was a terrible idea. Although that's not what it was meant for, it's what it had turned into. PyIB is looking fantastic, from what I've seen of it so far (as far as performance and code).

183 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-02 20:12 ID:Heaven [Del]

And how will PyIB be any different? It doesn't take a genius to figure out how to add separate boards, etc.

The only reason why people love Kusaba so much is because it makes everything 10x more efficient to manage.

Installed python + lib modules, just gave it a test run. Yay for not having to deal with DreamHost's process killer!

I like the idea of a multi-threaded imageboard script, but, sadly I doubt most chans generate enough traffic to utilize it properly. It certainly sounds nice for the process to spawn multiple threads so templating and database reads/other work can be done concurrently, but although execution time will improve, I'd be more worried about the system load from the extra threads, especially since there are multiple threads spawned for IO operations.


>Being sick of PHP was one of the major ones.

To be honest, ever since I started working on my futaba hack (if anybody cares there are links to it in this thread...somewhere), I've come to a bunch of points where I just wanted to scrap it and restart the project in a new language, mainly because of the fact that the PHP dev team shuns proper security practices and PHP's overall sloppy nature (not to mention futaba is fucking horrid code-wise, even for PHP), but because I'm a lazy fuck, that's probably never going to happen. :(

187 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-03 22:21 ID:Heaven [Del]

Ick, why would anyone want to hack futaba.

188 Name: Makoto!!QPpGvuVX : 2008-10-03 22:39 ID:Heaven [Del]



A friend of mine asked me to do it, originally, so I really didn't exactly "wan't" to do it. I figured I might as well distribute it for anybody else who wanted it, but, to be completely honest I've really lost interest in the entire project myself, considering futaba's horrible codebase, the limits to CSV flatfile logs and the slow performance of the original MySQL table structure (which I'm not going to spend my time to go back and reformat).

Hey what happened to Suigintou did you give up on the project?

I liked the idea that you were going to make a script that could be expanded and have features you want, rather than have the software force features down your throat like Kusaba and it's forks.

And the way it handled youtube videos in a pop-up window was a plus. Only problem was it wasn't user friendly. (people who can't read errors in Japanese)

The project still lives over here:

You may remember it from the old 1.0 days, when I was too lazy to convert the Shift_JIS encoded characters to UTF 8 and translate them. I still am too lazy to do that, which was why I switched the primary codebase to a pre-translated futaba, which sadly meant that some functions I wrote were not re-implemented, simply because of (again) laziness. I can probably hack in youtube embedding if you really want it, I guess.

However, to be completely honest, I wouldn't really advise using the current release. The code is still extremely sloppy and inefficient (it is based off Futaba after all), which is why I'm pretty much spending some time here and there to re-writing it, using a saner, more efficient and secure codebase ( least as close to one someone could get with PHP...).

If I finish it I'll archive the source and throw it out there, but there's no real guarantee that I can be bothered to. We'll see how it goes.

I'm not 275 and wouldn't know why he wanted to run it, but I would be personally interested in getting 0ch running (just locally for me), simply for the educational value of it. 0ch is a proven, solid textboard script -- essentially the defacto standard of text boards -- and yet there are very few non-Japanese-based installations. Really, textboards have been far overshadowed by imageboards, thanks in part to the death of world2ch, and the situation wasn't helped much by 4chan. It's unfortunate, too, as the textboard style is perhaps easier to "get" having no prior experience with anonymous forum software.

I don't know which version of Suigintou you used, since the zip archive supplied is missing a central directory, but the last (and final) version I released cached threads to static HTML (aka /res/12345.html instead of ?res=12345) instead of dynamic threads. It's terribly simple to do. Plus, it handled reslinks like wakaba does.

That said, I'm glad SOMEONE got some use out of that crappy futaba hack. Trust me though, eventually you'll ditch it because Futaba's codebase is completely absent of structure...or readability...

> completely absent of structure...or readability...

yeah, right. it can't be as bad as this:

 sub main_page_threads(){
my $thread;
return if !@$threads;
my $c=0;
for $thread (@$threads){


<div class="<%= $permasaged?'permasaged':'' %>thread" id="t-<%= $c %>">
<div class="navarrows">
<a href="#threadlistbox">&uArr;</a>
<a href="#t-<%= $c==1?(10>@$threads?scalar @$threads:10):$c-1 %>">&uarr;</a>
<a href="#t-<%= (($c==10||$c==@$threads)?1:$c+1) %>">&darr;</a>
<p class="threadtitle">
<a href="<%= $ENV{SCRIPT_NAME} %>/<%= $id %>">
<%= $title %></a>
(<%= $postcount %><%= $permasaged?', '.S_PERMASAGED:'' %>)


my $sth=$dbh->prepare('SELECT * FROM posts WHERE thread=? AND NUM = 1;') or
die S_DBERR;
$sth->execute($id) or die S_DBERR;
$sth=$dbh->prepare('SELECT * FROM posts WHERE thread=? AND num !=1 ORDER '.
'BY num DESC LIMIT 9;') or die S_DBERR;
$sth->execute($id) or die S_DBERR;
my $posts=$sth->fetchall_arrayref();
my $post;
for $post (reverse @$posts){

I actually like how it allows post editing by users and mods, it's something I've always felt was a bit lacking in other scripts. So many people always have to make double posts just to correct mistakes they made in their previous posts and all.

There is TOO MUCH OF IT!!!!

Just about all the critisisem says is it sucks, and they are NOT BEING SPECIFIC

Yotsubanome is Quick and Dirty.

It is the futaba script at heart.
I just fixed it up with more features and it needs professional help to really get it out of this buggy stage left from the futaba team

here is one thing

the original futaba script is not tested very well with Firefox
so there for some files don't get uploaded.

ex. *.bmp elc.

another thing is
In original futaba script, when the user deleted their thread the reply images remain and don't get deleted.

these are the thing i know what is wrong with futaba script
i learned about them by making yotsubanome.php

Wakaba provides plain noodles and cooking tools. The cooking tools are all clean and everything works admirably, but you have to use your own spices.

Whereas Kusaba X is instant cup ramen and a microwave.

What's avaliable in terms of single-board php imageboard scripts?

I'm currently using a tweaked fuukaba basic for the university anime club site, but it has a few bugs and can't make stickies. I was considering futallaby or something but it's not recommended any more, and i'm not entirely ready to commit myself to using a fully featured multi-board script.

427 Name: Anonymous : 2009-07-22 16:21 ID:Heaven [Del]


Wakaba is perl + db. Free hosting doesn't have perl (that's the rule, not the exception), and there's not enough traffic to get the benefits of an sql database. I'm pretty convinced php + flatfile is the way to go, just there's a dearth of scripts. There's 95chan's edits of futallaby, though i havn't heard much about it. Is there anything else out there?

Wrt/stickies: Stickies have their place. Currently there's a notice at the top of the page with basic details and recent news and so forth, but it looks kind of like a post anyways. Why not make it a[mod-editable and locked] sticky?

Is this kind of exploit possible? I'm relatively new to Python and I don't have any clues of what kind of attack it was. Anyone with experience with PyIB?

I forgot to say that we blocked foreign IPs, but the SSH console was still open to foreign IPs. One day we opened the site to foreign IPs and it got hacked some hours later, which makes me think they exploited PyIB in some way.

The database was fine. They just deleted the files.

C and Haskell are inappropriate languages for an imageboard as well. Scheme is ok perhaps, if not for the lack of libraries that would necessitate reinventing (or tracking down code for) basic things that other languages more suited to the task already have, particularly database interaction and image processing.

some spinoff folks from /x/-paranormal @ 4chan built their own imageboard script (Bastion) and are constantly adding features. its got some weird stuff like a reward points store (points awarded for generating discussion) and a multiple dice roller. only downside is it requires registration/login since they've been raided so many times on their old boards.

i don't think i'd trust anything developed by idiots who can't figure out how to stop a bunch of autistic kids from shitting up their boards.

Google 'bastion sanctuary' they just modified an old copy of bastion and removed the gaming features and merged it with an imageboard script.. it's still pretty cool.

Gotta admit, watching some guy type a reply in realtime was pretty cool.

After checking this out some more, I think it's a good idea but it doesn't work very well as an image board. Everyone just posts in the most active thread. Might as well get rid of threads entirely or make them more useful somehow.
