Wakaba/Kareha patches (107)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2009-10-22 16:08 ID:0RX4zZms [Del]

Wakaba and Kareha are refreshingly malleable, and I find it surprising that there isn't already a thread for all the "extras" can be patched onto a board, so here goes.

For the record, here are some existing patches on this board:

And here's a new one to forever answer the question "what thread was that from?" This patch adds a nifty feature to jump to the thread an image was posted in, by adding /thread at the end of the image's URL. For example:


Put this patch in the same directory as wakaba.pl, and apply with patch -p1 < show_thread.patch.

Here's a noko patch for wakaba, works like 4chan.

Note: this is pointless, but since people are always asking for it, here it is. Now you can stop asking. ;)

and another one that everyone requests for various inane reasons: stickies. Look at how easy this sort of thing is to add! Now let's never speak of stickies again, because they are dumb.

You've probably just opened the floodgates for dozens of "USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST" requests. You do know that, right?

14 Name: Anonymous : 2010-08-15 13:02 ID:Heaven [Del]

Well then maybe it'd be a good idea to supply the patch for it so all these kids can STFU. For that matter any 4chan-ish patches, so then future requests for AIDS can be summarily directed at this thread, no future discussion needed.

15 Name: Anonymous : 2010-08-15 14:04 ID:Heaven [Del]

The fact is these requests had pretty much stopped once they got the picture. Now that they have stickies and noko, they'll be drowning this place in requests for word filters, blotters, custom ban messages, and all sorts of other features that everyone here has already said they will not make. If someone wants to waste their time making such features available, then by all means, but I, and I'm sure most others, have made our stance clear for years. If people want that cancerous shit, they can get a trevorsaba clone. There are enough 4chan copies, and nobody here wants to facilitate the creation of more.

16 Name: Anonymous : 2010-08-15 18:29 ID:Heaven [Del]

Really? Because both of those patches were in response to a recent request either here or elsewhere.

I don't agree with all those features either, but the kiddies like it. I made those two to show how ridiculously easy it is to add a feature to Wakaba -- and I don't even like Perl. In fact I haven't actually written anything in Perl that was more than a line or two long since around 2003, and I'm so rusty at it that I copied most of the syntax for those patches from nearby code (or just plain guessed at it).

The blotter is probably one of the only features of 4chan that's actually useful (and a great alternative for putting useless shit into sticky posts), and it appears to have been removed.

Now let's see some really interesting and worthwhile patches from you, if you're so adamant about your "stance". You sure talk big.

17 Name: Anonymous : 2010-08-16 03:28 ID:Heaven [Del]

If you're referring to the "request" that's on /soc/, notice that the poster was just asking what people had come up with, and in fact explicitly states that 4chan garbage doesn't count. I agree with what you say about the blotter however, as it is indeed the only feature from 4chan that is worth using.

The entire reason nobody up until now has added those features despite how easy it would be is because everyone but you seems to understand that spoonfeeding all of the little moots what they want just encourages laziness. As you said, that crap is ridiculously easy. Hell, kirtaner managed it despite the fact he himself acknowleged he knew nothing about perl. So, why can't all the 14 year olds adamant to have it take 30 minutes to familiarise themselves with perl and get it done themselves?

You seriously think trying to call me out on my stance is going to make me share my code? It's my code that I took the time to learn and implement. I'm keeping it quiet for that very reason. Try using the same argument against, for example, Kirt. I'm sure he'll hand over all of 420's code just because you want him to.

Yup, and now I'm so pro I do web development professionally! Let that be a lesson kids, if you want something done, learn it yourself. Don't rely on patches from anonymous contributors. In the process I ended up learning a slew of languages (Our report system is an AJAX Java servlet hooked up to IRC, templating built around PHP, etc) and it was just a lot of fun, really.

Not only will you learn how to do this shit yourself, your users will love you just that much more because you're able to improve things yourself. For them.

Also, Taimaba (our Wakaba fork) is closed source and very little of the original code remains, but I can answer minor questions should they pop up. Major recent changes eliminated config.pl (pushed into the DB and a board manifest added, etc) and just about everything involving per-board file editing. Fun.

>Not only will you learn how to do this shit yourself, your users will love you just that much more because you're able to improve things yourself. For them.

This is pretty damn true. Hell, as I mentioned on the 420 code discussion IRC a couple of days ago, the sheer amount of work Kirt put into the place between now and when I last visited (which was quite a while back due to other things taking up all my free time) warranted a donation from me for their upkeep. Ever wonder why places like 420chan, and early days 4chan, see so much in the way of donations, while places running kusaba never see any? It's because users appreciate the work that gets put into those sorts of places. If Kirt keeps up the work he does, people like me are more than happy to help keep those places above water. It's how this works. I honestly doubt that 420 would still be alive if Kirt hadn't learned how to deal with shit himself. Sure, many people disagree with some of the features that 420chan implements, but at the end of the day they have been implemented by people who've taken their time to make them, not just sit around asking others to do it for them.

Please, Kirt, don't hand out anything too big. As much as I'd like to poke around the code myself out of sheer curiosity, I wouldn't like to see other places employing the code who haven't put the work in themselves.

Still, if it's Q&A time, how does the manager panel differ from that in wakaba? Have you got a universal panel that controls all boards, for example?

>Still, if it's Q&A time, how does the manager panel differ from that in wakaba? Have you got a universal panel that controls all boards, for example?

Yeah. The report system also doubles as a moderation interface so we basically have a "modding console" in an IRC channel, too.

27 Name: Anonymous : 2010-08-21 15:48 ID:7L/5gbu1 [Del]

That's actually pretty boss. I'm guessing you've also created an accounts system, so that mods don't know the admin pass? Always seemed like it'd be the first thing I'd do if I made a site as big as 420 using wakaba.

Also, any idea when the faq page will be back up?

FAQ pretty soon. We've almost finished integrating Taimaba with Wordpress (we have some really large content-heavy plans with 420chan, the archives, etc) and the page issues will be dealt with when the new FP launches.

Accounts system? You bet! (pic)

I was very intrigued by the whole system until I noticed your search for "purple potato". Still, pretty damn impressive, and a lesson to everyone asking for patches that doing shit yourself really will pay off eventually.

On request, I am posting a patch for Wakaba which enables the use of reCAPTCHA. It depends on the CPAN module Captcha::reCAPTCHA which means you'll probably have difficulty using this patch on shared hosting. I apologise for that, but I'm a novice programmer and don't know any other way of doing it. Debian/Ubuntu users with root access can install the module using sudo apt-get install libcaptcha-recaptcha-perl. Dreamhost has instructions for setting up CPAN without root access on their wiki.

To apply the patch, use patch -p1 -i waka_recaptcha.patch. To enable it, set ENABLE_CAPTCHA in config.pl to ENABLE_CAPTCHA => 'recaptcha'. You also need to set your private and public key from the reCAPTCHA website.

In the case that the required CPAN module is unavailable, it will bypass the CAPTCHA check altogether. I'm not sure whether this is a good decision or not. If you can, please improve this patch so it doesn't depend on the above-mentioned module.

You could probably just grab the file from cpan manually on a shared host - make a folder called Captcha and put the file in there. It doesn't use any C extensions, and it's just one file.

Here's some miscellaneous little stylesheet-related patches that might be worth applying to Wakaba and Kareha.

kareha/border-radius.patch and wakaba/border-radius.patch:

  • Added standard CSS3 border-radius declarations to stylesheets using -moz-border-radius, since every common web browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, and even MSIE 9) now supports the standard declaration. Separate patches for Wakaba and Kareha included.

kareha/javascript.patch and wakaba/javascript.patch:

  • Fixed set_cookie() to be RFC 2109 compliant. It wasn't escaping values before, so strictly-complying cookie implementations will choke on (for example) stylesheets with spaces in the titles.
  • Behavior change to set the style cookie from within set_stylesheet(), instead of when the window is closed. This gets rid of inconsistencies when working in multiple tags; in particular, changing the style and then opening a new tab should ideally show the new tab with the newly selected style.
  • Apparently MSIE 5 chokes and dies on regular expressions containing .*? or .+?. Not that I expect anyone to actually use IE5, but I tested the code with it and it didn't work, so there.
  • (For Wakaba only) Cleaned up set_stylesheet().


  • Fix strange empty space between top of thread box and header text in Buun and Pseud0ch styles. I'm not sure why it had a 1em pad there.
  • Adjust .replytext em selector to add underlining for <em> text, since the font-style: normal rendered it indistinguishable from normal text. (Was that intentional? Why?)

I tested these changes in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Internet Explorer, and everything appears to work.

I am working on linking multiple boards together through a single .php file roughly like so:

the issue I'm having is with make_http_forward, it always dumps the user into Boardname/wakaba.html rather than index.php?board=Boardname.

In every case i can find in wakaba.pl, I've changed make_http_forward(HTML_SELF,ALTERNATE_REDIRECT) to make_http_forward("http://website.com/index.php?board=$myboard",ALTERNATE_REDIRECT), and even gone so far as to go into wakabautils and alter the make_http_forward function to
if($alternate_method) { $location=mypage;

What I've found is in every call of "ALTERNATE_REDIRECT", it seems to completely ignore the location I give it. The only way I've found to get this to work is to put a $location=page in the ELSE section, but I can't actually find any calls to make_http_forward that don't use ALTERNATE_REDIRECT so i'm not sure where these calls are coming from, and doing so breaks the admin panel.

It's clear I'm not understanding this function and I've spent about 2 hours on this, so if anyone can help I'd be thrilled.

Here's a patch for Wakaba I made to deal with a raid on my board. It adds a "Ban All" link in the admin panel, which bans every poster in a thread, so you don't have to add bans for them manually. Perfect for dealing with CP floods and such. "Mass-banned: " will be prepended to the ban comment, but you can customise that in config.pl.

To apply it, run patch < wakaba_massban.patch on a clean install of Wakaba.

While I'm at it, here's also a patch for Kareha which lets you ban IPs on non-Apache web servers, as requested in http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1316722874/. It simply prevents the user from posting, nothing more, nothing less.

IPs are added in a file called ipbans.txt. I haven't bothered trying to encrypt it or anything, so you might want to configure your webserver to deny access to the file.

Disclaimer: I'm not really familiar with Kareha, so there might be stuff I've left out. I tested it using mode_message, and it worked fine.

Apply it using patch -p1 < kareha_bans.patch.

You're probably missing one of its dependencies. The patch is designed to allow posting if the module doesn't work.

Try running perl -e 'use Captcha::reCAPTCHA' on the command line and see if that returns any errors.

I've taken the time to trace the problem, and I think I have a fix (but as usual, I'm too lazy to test it until anyone whines about it):


my $challenge=$query->param("challenge");
my $response=$query->param("response");

and replace it with:

my $challenge=$query->param("recaptcha_challenge_field");
my $response=$query->param("recaptcha_response_field");

That should hopefully do the trick. Obviously it was a derp on my part, I'll create an updated patch soon to rectify this.

Also, why do you even need reCAPTCHA that desperately? The default CAPTCHA is fine, easy to fill out, hard for bots to break and can easily be tweaked if you need better anti-bot measures.

If you're trying to cope with spam, I think you'll find that many of those so-called bots are actually humans.

yes, they do, because you usually can't use noko and sage at the same time.

Pretty sure nokosage exists, at least in Yotsuba.

When you use the back button usually you don't see the latest posts.

that's what the reload button is for.

Nobody uses the web this way aside from 50 year olds. noko is useful.

>>50 actual code fixes! thanks.

84 Name: Anonymous : 2011-12-26 19:30 ID:Heaven [Del]

everyone uses the web this way aside from /b/tards. if you think noko is so useful, just write a tiny bit of javascript to implement it in your browser.

I already implemented it in Wakaba, and most message boards and forums have the feature built in and enabled by default.

This isn't actually a patch, but since I made it with Wakaba in mind, I'll post about it anyway.

I've created a wrapper for running CGI scripts on hosts with PHP that for some reason can't run regular CGI scripts. This means that if your host has Perl installed (more than likely, since it's included with all major Linux distros) and hasn't disabled proc_open() (which many shitty hosts tend to do for some reason), then it will be able to run Kareha and possibly Wakaba using this wrapper. Wakaba is less likely to run because it depends on the DBI module and database drivers which aren't included with the standard Perl distribution. Kareha depends only on core modules and will run perfectly fine nearly everywhere.

If you've been wanting to use Wakaba or Kareha, but your (crappy) host doesn't support CGI, I suggest trying this. It's especially useful with Kareha, since all the PHP-based textboard scripts suck.

Hey, you made PHPerl, which I never got around to making. GJ.

Anyone running a Wakaba board ought to read this.

There's a serious vulnerability in Wakaba 3.0.8 and below which let's anyone inject whatever HTML they want to in posts. This can be fixed by removing a couple of lines in the get_decoded_hashref() and get_decoded_arrayref() subroutines in wakaba.pl, as shown in the included patch file. There should be no problem in making these changes.

Board moderators with no access to the board files may add /chr\([0-9]/ to spam.txt in order to fix the problem.

Looks like that is there to work around some absurdity in MySQL. I supposed MySQL has since changed and is now doing the wrong thing?

I'll put together a 3.0.9.

did anyone ever implement svg thumbnailing?

I'm sure someone did.

94 Name: Anonymous : 2013-01-13 12:16 ID:MLW+MHfx [Del]

How can this be used in Wakaba?

Pay no attention to the devs that tell you that you don't need something, such as noko. They seem to be into some weird sub/dom kink and want the world to bend their way. Just fork their code and make it better.

96 Name: Anonymous : 2013-05-28 08:51 ID:Heaven [Del]

Or you know, they could just not feel obligated to bend to your every need.

97 Name: Anonymous : 2013-07-13 22:45 ID:Heaven [Del]

> Just fork their code and make it better.

The sort of people who want things like noko aren't capable of that.

Just do ALTER TABLE comments ADD approved TINYINT; in the sql interface

>>101 Not for me, for others :p

I do get this error when I click an approve link within the admin panel:

DBD::mysql::st fetchrow_hashref failed: fetch() without execute() at wakaba.pl line 2066

Ignore the line number, my copy is modded.

sub get_decoded_arrayref($)
my ($sth)=@_;

my $row=$sth->fetchrow_arrayref();

That's the issue line.

103 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-16 07:58 ID:Heaven [Del]

No idea. Are you using SQLite or a regular mysql database? I've only tested this on SQLite. Also, did you try to run the actual patch on your modded wakaba.pl? That could very well be the issue.

104 Name: Anonymous : 2013-08-16 08:49 ID:sOmyVriI [Del]

The mod works, it just also throws that error into the error log. It's just MySQL.

What happended to this site? Everything I see here is so old :(

AND I have no clue about how to get kareha running.

106 Name: Anonymous : 2017-04-16 15:20 ID:TmtafiOh [Del]

Wakaba is mostly mature at this point. There really isn't too much to do to Wakaba to make it a futaba channel clone so therefore, there really isn't much to discuss. I suppose it would be nice to update Wakaba and Kareha to make it HTML5 semantic.

> AND I have no clue about how to get kareha running.

Take the files from /mode_message (for textboard) or /mode_image (for imageboard, with threads that restart with 1) and put them in the main index.
