me again... few basics questions on Kareha (12)

right, few questions, people. If you can help me, thanks very much.

I used Kareha because it looked fairly easy to get to grips with (famous last thoughts), but there's a few things I can't work out how to do.

-is there a way for mods of the board to edit others' posts or move them to another section of the site?
-there's a few references in the docs about the Manage links... where are these located?
-last one for now... is there a way to edit the Home links that get generated?

thanks for your time ^^

  1. There's no automatic way to move and edit posts. If you feel you really have to do it, edit the files in res/, but overall I feel it's a better idea to not do this at all.
  2. Manage is for Wakaba. Kareha 3.0 now has a separate admin script, however: Browse to it manually.
  3. Edit

Also, no need to spawn off lots of threads. You could have just used the previous one.

apologies. But thanks for your answers.

I'll know better for next time.

now I got an odd one. I have a thread with around seven images or so, say, then hit reply. I can only see the first three images in reply mode? Why would this happen? I ask because it's a little annoying going into reply mode and then not being able to view exactly what you're replying to.

refresh the page.

well, yeah, I'd thought of that. Takes a while for it to do that properly though... guess I'll just have to live with it

Make sure you have a proper .htaccess set up so that HTML pages don't get cached. Some browesers might still display old pages on occasion, but it should help.

thanks for that. I think I'm managing.

I'd like to edit the Home link that gets created. At the moment it points to the root of my domain, instead of the imageboard folder. Is there any way I can change this?

Also, is there a way I can let people know I've deleted a post? I noticed on here there's a message that says "this post has been deleted by a moderator". Please explain for the hard-of-thinking how I can set this up.

Both of those involve editing the templates in To change the Home link, just find the code for that and change it. To display deleted replies, edit the DELETED_TEMPLATE (or whatever it was called again).

okay, cheers. I haven't fiddled with the DELETED_TEMPLATE yet, but the home link worked okay.

another question?

is it possible to ban people, by username or even by IP? if so... what do I do? I've looked in a couple of other threads and I'm having trouble following what I need to do. How would I get the IP of a user?

Right now there's no automatic way to ban people. You can ban by IP through Apache by making a .htaccess file that contains like like Deny from To see actual IPs, you have to hack a bit, and change <var $masked_ip> to <var $ip>. I'll probably fix that to be friendlier at some point in the future.

The reason there's no easy way to ban people is mostly that I don't think this is wise nor necessary to do for anybody but spammers, and they use proxies and zombie machines anyway. Your board will be a happier place if you don't go around banning people.

sounds fair. I've no reason to ban people, we can always just deleted posts. Just wondered if it was possible.

Cheers for all your help ^^
