Setting up multiple sections? (20)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2007-11-17 14:30 ID:avbXCQj4 [Del]

Hey, I was just curious on how I would set up multiple pages using Wakaba, but only use one database and not have to use the installation files over again? It's most probably something really simple to do but I'm not very smart. Oh, and if you need an example one area would be called... Let's say, games and another one called spam, but they wouldn't be separate installations.

I'm pretty sure you can reuse the database.

>not have to use the installation files over again?

No possible way. To my knowledge, all imageboard software available requires a separate installation for each board

Besides its only a 100kb difference for each board.

>>1 you could do it on a -nix system using symlinks for everything but, but it's likely more trouble than it's worth.

You know, I really don't know how I could make the "Don't start new threads for every question, use the threads linked above." notice any more visible. What does it take to make people see it? At this rate, maybe I should just remove the thread creation for entirely.

hmmmmm.................. seeing as how this kind of thing happens all the time.. maybe you should change the name of this kareha board to "a board for random tech discussion except for a few threads that you can only discuss wakaba and kareha"

Move the "Don't start new.." to by the post form?

Though I do wonder how some of these people manage to even scroll that far down without seeing the "WAKABA AND KAREHA SUPPORT THREAD."

Maybe hide the new thread form and make it so you have to click on something small and hard to find to get to it?

What is wrong with starting a new thread? Why are you so anal about it?

Because if all previous information is kept in one place, there is some small chance that people will actually look through it to find their answer instead of asking the same questions over and over again.

Just goes to show your layout is not user friendly if you need to keep explaining the interface to people.

Work on making it obvious, and people will do the obvious.

i rewrote my wakaba to enable exactly this, i'm planning to release the patches as soon as i've added some more features i've wanted in the admin panel and cleaned the shit up a bit and produced proper patch files

but i gave you a swedish translation of strings like a year ago and you didn't include it in the latest release 3.0.7 so i don't see the point of contributing to this project

13 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2008-01-24 18:09 ID:Heaven [Del]

As you may have noticed, development is mostly at a standstill, and I had ages to forget all about that translation before 3.0.7. I would've included it if I had remembered it existed.

i understand, i've instead decided to fork your wakaba code into my own version that uses one install as a code base and lets users configure multiple boards using multiple configuration files, a very quick a simple solution i'm doing only because i need it for the boards i manage

i hope it's ok, i believe i read somewhere that it's all public domain or something, i'm keeping files like wakautils intact and giving you full credit for them because those tools are invaluable for my forked version

kusaba is an imageboard script designed for multiple boards.
it has a much more complex config/install though (imo)

And it was written by monkeys.

Drydock can do multiple boards, try that.

oh, i see.
it looked nice, but it has maybe too many
features/messy code. it kept causing problems
on my webhost.

say, does php have some kinda of aura as an
incompete langauge?

i'll try out that drydock, thanks.

"A few weeks ago I was bitching to Miker and Diego about Gregarious, the PHP based news reader we use and how insane it is to try to customize. It's one of those "classic" PHP apps which is just written by monkeys."
