Another "things from 4chan" (64, permasaged)

1 Name: triot : 2005-12-18 14:28 ID:2dapJ/ZR [Del]

im running wakabi, and i would like to ask if its possible to add something like: to it, it would be really great for my bbs.

Also is it possible to make a non-image board like:

And another(not 4chan), can you make so everyone from ip x.x.x.x gets the nick, lets say: "triot" and it is in grey colour like f0f0f0 (if thats grey), it would be usuefull to see who is mod on that board.

Also if there is a perl script to make a News frontpage.

And last but not least, is there a way to get all manage/admin logins for ALL boards you have, so you dont have to go to each board to moderate them all.

Thank you.

  1. If you want to mess around with templates in, you can do it.
  2. Non-image board is called Karaha, available from the same place as wakaba was.
  3. Again, if yoy know perl, you can do it.
  4. No. That's handcodeed html.
  5. I doubt it.

Sorry for posting so late, anyways here is my reply.

  1. Why would i post here if i knew how to do it?
  2. Sorry for not explaining too good but i thought they should be together, hmm explaining sucks but anyways that they should be one script that you only have to do in the config imageboard='0' or 1.
  3. See 1.
  4. Here i meant that it should be included see more on 5.
  5. A better admin system would be so great for board mods, it is really annoying that you have to click on every board and edit it all but it's not that important ofc but it would be great together with 4(news script) news script could work like a comment and it would be nice if you could comment the news (just like the frontpage is like a non-imageboard)

I think the news thing could be done easy like you said "mess with the templates" too bad i don't have a clue what the heck perl is nor do i know how to edit it.

So if anyone could/have anything like the flashupload on 4chan and don't care who's hands it goes in please post it here or email me at

Thank You.

also i get a error trying to put google adwords on my site, tried putting it in the header and editiing

5 Name: dmpk2k!hinhT6kz2E : 2005-12-19 15:01 ID:Heaven [Del]

  1. Can be emulated by REPLIES_PER_THREAD => 0 and some template hacking. If you know HTML, modifying the templates is easy.
  2. Kareha is both a text and image board. Unlike Wakaba, it has both modes.
  3. In my opinion this is lame, but see bottom of post.
  4. Why? Wakaba and Kareha are text and image boards, not whole website solutions. Find software meant for a mainpage, or make your own.
  5. This can be done with some hacking, but I must ask, why do you need this? I admin several boards, but I haven't needed to enter admin mode in months.
> also i get a error trying to put google adwords on my site, tried putting it in the header and editiing

Put it in one of the files in the include/ directory.

Now, as to your problem. A quick hack:
Add the following to

use constant S_BADNAME => 'Error: You're not authorized to use that nick.';

Add the following to

use constant VIP_NAME => 'triot';
use constant VIP_IP => 'x.x.x.x';

In, post_stuff(), change



make_error(S_BADNAME) if ($nick eq VIP_NAME and $ip ne VIP_IP);

In futaba_style, change all instances of

<var $name>


<if $name ne VIP_NAME><var $name></if><if $name eq VIP_NAME><span class="vipname"><var $name></span></if>

In the CSS files, add

.vipname {

This is untested. I make no guarantees that it'll work the first try.

PS. This is juvenile attention whoring. Don't do it.

isn't that something you would have to code in yourself if you really wanted something as stupid as that

but, if the person cannot code? so stfu newfag

23 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-04 06:31 ID:Heaven [Del]

> newfag

That's pretty rich, seeing as how #fortune is very much a "newfag" feature for image boards. It's a very recent addition to futallaby, and never existed in any other image board scripts.

That's your problem. The code is public domain. Fix it yourself or pay a developer to do it for you.

I beg your pardon? #fortune has been in 4chan's code since the beginning. It's just that nobody found out about it until much later. Also, it's not something moot just pulled out of his ass; on 2ch, !omikuji adds a random fortune to your post.

28 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2008-06-01 05:20 ID:Heaven [Del]


2ch is not Futaba, and it certainly hasn't been there since the beginning because Futallaby started out as nothing but a translation of Futaba, which didn't have that.

29 Name: Anonymous : 2008-06-01 07:02 ID:Heaven [Del]

No, I was merely pointing out that moot didn't invent it.
"Beginning" in my sentence was referring to "4chan's code", which would be Yotsuba, which, although it is based on Futallaby, is a whole different beast. (In theory, at least, considering nobody outside of the 4chan dev team has seen it.)
I realize 2ch isn't Futaba; I never mentioned Futaba.

Excuse me for bumpin' up this thread but...

If I would decide making a sticky feature, where would I begin and can anyone give me pointers how to code it? I'm not looking for people telling me to "Do it yourself" because I'm intending to do just that but I do need a hint where to begin and whatnot.

So, anyone out there able to tell me?

Also, I'm not interested to hear/read that a sticky feature is "unethical", "stupid" or whatever. That's your opinion, man. :)

Thanks in advance.

Yeah I got that, but does that mean I will have to use the Perl I learned in the file or not?

I think I asked for directions; to learn Perl was already a given, man. Seriously. :\

once you learn perl, it'll be extremely easy for you to figure that out.

What? I didn't ask for that, sir.

Don't sheesh out of the blue, you're just being greedy on the simplest things to answer. Thanks for your "directions" and "hints" and especially thanks for ignoring the part where I say I will do it myself.

But never mind, you should know better. This is a supportboard, you dumbfuck. Thanks for supporting me. Have a nice day.

Nobody is being greedy. People are giving you the answer you need instead of the answer you want. You'd do well to listen to them.

Actually, you're all giving useless, snotty suggestions to the poor kid rather than pointing to what section of would be best hacked to his desires. If you don't have a clue on the subject, don't be so helpful as to say "Learn perl, and figure it out yourself, maggot."

41 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-23 19:03 ID:Heaven [Del]


If he can't figure that out himself, he can't do the rest of the job either. Thus the "learn perl" comments, because he will have no use for the answer to his question even if it was given.

42 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-23 20:25 ID:Heaven [Del]

I still say managing a website with any dynamic content is best left to those capable of connecting to the server with ssh, managing their files on the command line, and doing at least simple stuff in perl. How people can get anything accomplished with cpanel-based sites and web-based file uploading is beyond my comprehension.

44 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-25 08:30 ID:OnNNg15w [Del]

This is so true

Yes he would, if you'd say that he has to hack into the post section of the file, then he would have looked into that part of the file. What you guys are basically saying is, 'Hi. Learn perl. Bye'. Show some respect and at least point out where a newcomer like him can start looking for an answer. He already said he wants to do the coding himself, so what's the idea of telling him to learn Perl? If he says he's coding it himself, doesn't that indicate that he already knows perl? Learn to read.

Also, what if he figured it out how to do it? You destroyed a perfect opportunity for anyone else who wants the same as he, since he's now probably hesitating in posting his findings. Thanks a lot.

Hey, nice support! Except it has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Go away.

45 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-25 12:46 ID:Heaven [Del]

> doesn't that indicate that he already knows perl?

No, it does not. The script is simple and straightforward enough that it should be completely obvious that this is where to look. Anybody who actually knew enough of the language would figure this out on their own in a matter of minutes. The fact that he is asking (and not just asking which function, but which file) is a clear indicator that he doesn't yet know enough of the language to be able to accomplish the task.

46 Name: Anonymous : 2008-10-25 15:10 ID:OnNNg15w [Del]

Even if you know Perl, it doesn't necessarily mean that you know how to code a specific function.

Maybe he's tried before; trying the kareha style file, the wakautils or maybe wakaba file itself but couldn't quite figure out how to do it... so he turns to the only support for wakaba, only to find people like you to guide him back to square 1.

And correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't he ask directions and/or hints to start off with, and later just threw in if would be a good place to start? Guy, I'd do so too if I were talking to some faggot who has his head up his ass and just tells me to 'go learn perl'. Honestly.

How can I modify wakaba to make it load index.html of the install's directory instead of reloading the page itself (wakaba.html)?

I need this because my server is slow and permissions are not set propely after a post before the page is requested, so I made index.html which redirects to wakaba.html after a second in each wakaba directory.
