The Wakaba and Kareha support thread (1000)

This thread is for all your simple questions about installing and running Wakaba or Kareha, that just require quick answers. Please don't create any more new threads for issues like that, post them in here instead.

oh, wait... it shows it here, it just doesn't on 4-ch...

502 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-19 03:34 ID:Heaven [Del]


Well, set up capcodes for the admin and mod, and set them to output something like <span style="color:red">The admin</span>, then post with just the capcode and no name.


It may be that 4-ch is one or two versions behind...

503 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-19 09:44 ID:XWHu02YR [Del]


This is probably a really silly question, but how do I post with a capcode? When I enter my name in as just that, it posts as some tripcoded(?) version of what I entered as the capcode in

504 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-19 12:06 ID:Heaven [Del]


You're supposed to put the tripcoded version in

capcodes work in wakaba?

506 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-19 13:06 ID:Heaven [Del]


I guess I assumed we were talking about Kareha?

Furhter investigation of this mysterious spammer indicates that it is actually a human posting from a regular browser.

Not much to do about that, except to update spam.txt, I added a couple of entries that should give him trouble.

(I was going to post those entries here too but of course I got caught by the spam filter.)

508 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-19 13:50 ID:Heaven [Del]

the OP may have been, but I was wondering it it works with wakaba. doesn't seem like it would be hard to implement. or am i just assuming wrongfully?

509 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-19 14:25 ID:XWHu02YR [Del]

Thanks, that cleared it up. I had it coded in backwards per se. Oh and I did mean in Kareha, I forgot that this thread is for both Wakaba and Kareha help when I posted that question.

i don't think your new spam definitions are stopping the spam... is there anything "special" you need to do in order for the new spam.txt to take effect or is it good to go as soon as you upload it?

why don't icons work :( they are not working for swf. have not tried others. they are in /icons/ in the same directory as etc chmod 755 for the dir and the flash.png.

515 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-27 10:17 ID:FFlhcx6s [Del]

Can kareha ban IP addresses when running under lighttpd, or does it have to be done manually?

516 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-27 13:19 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


I couldn't say without knowing more of what you did and what happens. Did you set them up correctly in


Well, you can configure what kind of format Kareha writes the bans in to some extent. But I know nothing of lighttpd, so you'll have to figure out for yourself what to configure it to.

517 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-27 15:41 ID:Heaven [Del]

i had a custom ban system for kareha but i have since lost it... :( sorry


use constant FILETYPES => (
swf => 'icons/flash.png',
swf => '.',

i have tried commenting out the "swf => '.'," but the icons still do not show when someone posts a flash file.

518 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-27 19:39 ID:Heaven [Del]


Well it's definitely not correct to have both. Drop the '.' one.

519 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-27 19:54 ID:Heaven [Del]

icon still isn't showing after commenting out swf => '.', also the swf filenames are still not being renamed when posted. is that normal for filetypes that are not images?

520 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-28 06:30 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


Yes, anything in the FILETYPES list will not be renamed. Make sure the icon files are readable by the webserver process. Making them 644 should be enough.

521 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-28 14:45 ID:Heaven [Del]

I had it @ 755 and now it is @ 644. Still not working. example:

to recap: @ /temp/ (755)
icon @ /temp/icons/flash.png directory (755) file (644)

use constant FILETYPES => (

swf => 'icons/flash.png',


We can post files of type 'swf' and the filenames are not altered when posted. BUT icon 'flash.png' does not show as the thumbnail for the post. It simply says "No Thumbnail."

522 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-01-28 15:20 ID:Heaven [Del]


That's also very weird. I just tried doing the exact same thing, and it worked just fine.

Wait, is your /thumb/ directory writable?

523 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-28 16:40 ID:Heaven [Del]

it is 751 atm i will try 755

524 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-28 16:48 ID:Heaven [Del]

made no difference, as was expected. see:

also, i have commented out the portion of that does the spam check as you suggested. i have yet to get the spam error but i hope to find a better solution sometime soon.

i am wondering if it is something strange with the dreamhost account, but this doesn't seem right because i have had wakaba boards on dreamhost in the past with no problem.

our files are edited to add custom features as i've said before, but my friend used our files on his home server and everything ran fine.

also, do you or anyone else have any suggestions for getting adbrite ad codes to work with wakaba? adbrite code creates an "xml parsing error: not well formed" when I try to implement it. The arrow in the xml error always points to the second equal sign in the adbrite script URL.

Writable would be 777, probably.


If it's "<script src=http://whatever>", change it to <script src="http://whatever">. If nothing else works, set USE_XHTML to 0 and remove the lines about xhtml from .htaccess.

528 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-29 22:47 ID:Heaven [Del]

777 and still no icon.

I've had UXE_XHTML set to 0 for some time, didn't realize I had to remove something from the htaccess for it to work.

#<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
#RewriteEngine On
#RewriteCond %{HTTP_ACCEPT} application/xhtml\+xml
#RewriteRule \.html$ - [T=application/xhtml+xml;charset=utf-8]


ads are working now, but i think it will take 24 hours before adbrite network ads start showing.

I implemented a topbar nav menu on i believe it will be a good and easy way to provide a cross-browser friendly menu across every board by using one header.html (using either symlinks or changing the location/to/header.html in wakaba.)

just wanted some criticism from the society ;D

p.s. this site was just down or really really bogged down for the past half hour or more.

Thank you very much! I new on this, and i a little emm... dumb jeje, but with your explanation i have my imageboard =3

But i have another question, how i do to have many seccion, you know like 4chan, i mean, how i do to have a frame with the sections. I have to do a directory for every section?

532 Name: Anonymous : 2007-01-31 21:11 ID:Heaven [Del]

you need to setup a seperate directory for each board you want to run. also you will need one mysql databse per imageboard.

if you want to have a list of the boards on one side and the actual board to the right you need to setup a framed index.html that calls two html files for 2 separate sections.

533 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-01 03:48 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]

> you will need one mysql databse per imageboard.

Actually, no, you don't. You can do it that way if you want, but you can also change the SQL_TABLE option to use differently-named tables in the same database for each board.

534 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-01 14:03 ID:Heaven [Del]

aso aso. any idea on swf icons? it wouldn't be a problem but i want a /random/ board that allows SWF posting as well. if I were to setup a seperate flash board then it would be as simple as coding the icons into

535 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-01 18:42 ID:Heaven [Del]


No, I really have no idea what's going on there. If you have the Perl skills, you can dig into the code and try to find what function call fails or something... Add die statements in strategic locations or some such.

my perl skills are limited. Not a problem, though. I will just have a seperate flash board. ^_^

p.s. how hard would it be to make the management panel create multiple pages rather than parse all of the post data to one page? the load time is horrible on boards with many posts.

538 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-02 07:12 ID:+U916Qy9 [Del]

I've run into a formatting bug that shows up in IE with kareha in messageboard mode where if the thumbnail of an image posted is taller than the post text, the image extends beyond the end of the post body and the style is generally broken. It looks like it's restricted to the Blue Moon theme (which I rather like...) as well as Toothpaste (basically where the post body has a different color background).

I set up an example at

Any suggestions?

539 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-02 07:46 ID:l2svyCMe [Del]

None more useful than "don't use IE" or "figure out how to fix the CSS", because I don't know how.

Hi again!, i have another question.

When i try put the name "Berryz Kobo" i obtain this error

Can't locate object method "Berryz" via package "kobo" (perhaps you forgot to load "kobo"?) at line 14.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 14.
Compilation failed in require at line 12.

But if i put just "Berryz" all working :S

i apreciated if anyone can help me. C-ya

541 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-04 20:41 ID:Heaven [Del]

"Try put the name"? You need to explain in a bit more detail what you are doing.

542 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-05 02:35 ID:laJxzXGw [Del]

If you are trying to set the name of your imageboard to Berryz Kobo then it should look like this:

use constant TITLE => 'Berryz Kobo';	# Name of this image board

543 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-05 16:52 ID:laJxzXGw [Del]

i've installed proxycheck into /proxycheck/ in a particular wakaba directory and set it to:

use constant PROXY_COMMAND => 'proxycheck/proxycheck -s -d -c chat::"Multi-User License: 100-0000-000" -aaaa';	

I enabled proxy check and there is an obvious pause between the time you press submit and when your post actually goes through, but when I post with Tor it does not catch the proxy. Am I doing something wrong?

544 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-05 19:10 ID:Heaven [Del]

I didn't write the proxy check code (dmpk2k did), so I can't tell for sure but Tor is not really any kind of normal proxy, so I'd imagine proxycheck doesn't notice it.

Do you have any leads on the cause of the spam filter blocking image posts? It's getting really annoying.

546 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-06 05:05 ID:Heaven [Del]

No, sorry, it's damn hard to debug when you can't reproduce it. Well, maybe I should try that trick I was thinking of earlier and give it to you to test... I'll try to remember.

547 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-06 12:57 ID:3obEaqim [Del]

If you are still experiencing it (as I'm sure my board would be too) you should comment out the block of code that handles the spam stuff. WAHa had me do that until further notice.

open in your prefered editor and find sub spam_engine. comment out everything from my $spam_checker to spam_screen($query), like this:

sub spam_engine(%)

my %args=@_;
my @spam_files=@{$args{spam_files}||[]};
my @trap_fields=@{$args{trap_fields}||[]};
my %excluded_fields=map ($_=>1),@{$args{excluded_fields}||[]};
my $query=$args{query}||new CGI;
my $charset=$args{charset};
for(@trap_fields) { spam_screen($query) if $query->param($_) }
######################COMMENTED OUT TO STOP SPAM ERROR##########################
#my $spam_checker=compile_spam_checker(@spam_files); #
#my @fields=$query->param; #
#@fields=grep !$excluded_fields{$_},@fields if %excluded_fields; #
#my $fulltext=join "\n",map decode_string($query->param($_),$charset),@fields; #
#study $fulltext; #
# #
#spam_screen($query) if $spam_checker->($fulltext); #

Also, will Wakaba get fancy DISPLAY_ID support anytime soon (i.e. ability to make IDs not persist between threads, change daily, and such?) At least the board oper I was talking to said that lack of that was his reason for not using it.

549 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-06 22:12 ID:3obEaqim [Del]

you can make IDs change by day.

use constant DISPLAY_ID => 'mask,sage'; # How to display user IDs (0 or '': don't display,

											#  'day' and 'board' in any combination: make IDs change for each day or board,
# 'mask': display masked IP address (similar IPs look similar, but are still encrypted)
# 'sage': don't display ID when user sages, 'link': don't display ID when the user fills out the link field,
# 'ip': display user's IP, 'host': display user's host)

The way I have it setup it shows a masked version of the users IP and shows ID:HEAVEN when a user sages.

550 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-06 23:16 ID:FFlhcx6s [Del]

Hmm. His exact words were "IDs on wakaba are broken in that they persist between threads." Guess he was wrong.

551 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-07 02:01 ID:3obEaqim [Del]

Oh does he mean that IDs stay the same thread to thread? that's... i dunno. sounds like a dumb idea imho. what would be the point of having IDs? other than showing if one person was posting multiple times in one thread.

in the end we all want different things. i guess it wouldn't be hard to add it. i'm not the expert, though.

Also, yo WAHa I added the email link protocols to and it's working as you said it would. thanks. :)

552 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-07 02:30 ID:FFlhcx6s [Del]

It's because, in an extended discussion, certain people apparently have trouble keeping straight which Anonymous made which posts. I suggested SILLY_ANONYMOUS as an alternative but he thought that was, well, silly.

553 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-07 03:33 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]

Persistent IDs in Wakaba are sort of impossible to do, as generating the ID requires knowing some fact that will stay constant throughout the thread, and that would most conveniently be the thread number, but the thread number is not known until the post is actually written to the database. So the ID of the first post would be wrong. I guess it could be added, with that caveat, if it's really wanted, though.

554 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-07 07:00 ID:FFlhcx6s [Del]

Why not the timestamp of the first post in the thread? Unless that's what the thread number is.

555 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-07 08:06 ID:Heaven [Del]


That's what Kareha uses, but the timestamp is not actually stored in the Wakaba database, only the textual date string. One could use that instead, but in either case it would require an extra database lookup for every post, and that seems sort of silly.

556 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-07 13:56 ID:3obEaqim [Del]

I made my wakaba display file sizes in KB rather than Bytes like so:

<var $size/1024> KB

Very easy, obviously. But it displays with lots of trailing decimals. A few wakaba versions ago I remember that I had this working without any decimal places but I don't quite remember how I did this. Is there some easy way to do it?

557 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-07 14:28 ID:Heaven [Del]

nevermind, i figured it out. sorry I'm dumb.

<var int($size/1024)> KB

I don't mind that the rounding isn't perfect. 1KB give or take isn't a big deal.

558 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-07 15:28 ID:Heaven [Del]


You can just add 0.5 to get the common rounding.

559 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-07 17:25 ID:VqDGzUzh [Del]


If you want, try this and see if it helps:

560 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-08 14:52 ID:Heaven [Del]

add it to 1024? or add it to $size? orrrrrrrr add it to the product?

561 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-09 05:53 ID:fcfmew2T [Del]

why not do ($size>>9)+1>>1 instead?

562 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-09 16:07 ID:Heaven [Del]

Because I have no idea what that does!

563 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-09 16:20 ID:Heaven [Del]

shift right 9, add 1, shift right 1...
it's slightly faster than doing int($size/1024+.5) (about .25 seconds of cpu time for 1000000 iterations on my machine), and, at least to me, a more straightforward way to do it...

564 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-10 21:31 ID:yCQxWdf6 [Del]


This is Perl. The parsing cost for >> is higher than switching / out for it!

565 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-10 22:35 ID:Heaven [Del]

wrong. the parsing cost is the same for both.

566 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-11 09:07 ID:Heaven [Del]

This is a totally pointless discussion, but I'll point out that parsing cost is nearly non-existent, and always O(1), as Perl compiles to bytecode before running anyway.

567 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-11 13:08 ID:yCQxWdf6 [Del]


No, see, it's one byte longer.

Anyway this is ridiculous.

568 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-11 16:09 ID:Heaven [Del]

would it be possible to add some <if $admin></if> statements into the $threads loop (and actually work?) I can't figure out what I need to add in for this to work. The idea is to have management buttons in the threads that don't show unless you have the wakaadmin cookies.

569 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-11 17:10 ID:Heaven [Del]

Remember, the threads are static HTML files. You can't affect the contents at any other point than when somebody is posting.

What you could do is always add buttons, and use CSS to hide them and some Javascript to check for cookies and un-hide the buttons as needed.

How do I update the settings of a wakaba board after the board has been created?

for example, if I want to change the max file size, or the title of the board? I know where to change it in the config file, but I dont know how to ask the board to update its settings.

572 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2007-02-13 04:26 ID:Heaven [Del]


If the setting does not affect the look of the board, editing the config is sufficient. If it does, select "rebuild caches" in the admin panel.

I think I found a bug in kareha... When you set the MAX_LINES_SHOWN to 0 (which should stand for 'no limit'), it actually does display nothing. A feature not implemented, perhaps? :)

575 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-15 14:12 ID:nOog+VD8 [Del]

I hope this is a "simple question." (sorry if it's not)
Well, my host doesn't allow running cgi out of cgi-bin, so I installed kareha there. Once I did that, it seemed I still had a problem. All the links formed as something along the lines of:


What I eventually did to "fix" it is replace SCRIPT_NAME with SCRIPT_URL throughout the pl files.
Now everything seems to be working, except for in the full thread view:
the "return" link is like this:


and the other links (entire thread, last 50 posts) add on after the thread number as well.

576 Name: Anonymous : 2007-02-15 15:38 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>574 No, that's a feature! :) Just set it to something absurdly high.

I can actually see "0" being a useful setting for that, in some instances.

It's no big deal anyway, just curious to know whether that is tweakable or not. :)

Look in and find the following two lines:

use constant MAX_W => 285;						# Images exceeding this width will be thumbnailed
use constant MAX_H => 285; # Images exceeding this height will be thumbnailed

Images larger than what you set there will be thumbnailed to the dimensions specified.

howdy... just spent an hour fixing a kareha bug, and figured you folks may like to hear about it.

In the admin console, you may have problems when trying to delete multiple posts from a thread using the check boxes, after clicking into a thread using the title link.

Solution: Line 91 of

current version reads: <form action="<const KAREHA_SCRIPT>" method="post">

change it to this: <form action="<var $path><const KAREHA_SCRIPT>" method="post">

no, but firebug pops up and shows this..........

NEVERMIND. I just tried to upload a screenshot but I got the anti spam message!

Anti-spam filters triggered.

If you are not a spammer, you are probably accidentially trying to use an URL that is listed in the spam file. Try editing your post to remove it. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Uh ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, looks like you've got something to work out maybe?

Anywy, here is the screenshot:

Found a problem close to mine (, but thought I would ask before I dismiss it as fixed. My host will not install mod_header, want me to pay extra, blah blah. Do I lose any functionality not fixed by adding <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" /> to the script?

My symptom before I added this line was that I would post a thread, and then attempt to reply to the thread and it would hang on waiting for host and then eventually display a blank page. Reloading showed no post, but then adding this line fixed it all.

IE is no concern of mine, but does this line fix all functionality lost by not having mod_header?

That certainly sounds like a browser bug, or unintended behaviour. You should really not be getting an error inside a try statement, as that is used to allow and catch errors in code! Is anyone else having the same problem?

Also, I tried putting out a fix for the spam bug for people to test, but nobody ever reported back whether it worked or not, so I still have no idea if that did anything.


It should be approximately the same, although I am sure there are cases where it does something different (because there always is), but if it looks like it's working, that should be good enough.
