||First you must install an image board, and
get it working. The ImageBoard-Tracker is added AFTER you verify
you image board is working
ImageBoard-Tracker from the
downloads section (skip over the things talking about what the
seeders need to do). Extract the SeedSupport.php file onto your
public HTTP server. If you don't PHP
support already, you must get it now, you can
download the PHP lib here.
Now for my example, I am going to work with Futaba, and Futallaby.
Because I want multiple sections such as /a/ /h/ /l/
/w/ etc, I am going to place my ImageBoard-Tracker one
directory above all of them.
Keep in mind that one
ImageBoard-Tracker can support multiple sections, so it would
unwise to create multiple
instances of ImageBoard-Trackers,. unless you have multiple
servers like adult.FooChan.org ; orz.FooChan.org
etc (in which case it cant be helped - one should b made for each server
- this is temporary I am planning on making a Tracker that an go across
servers but this will take some time to make).
Go to the SeedSupport.php file
through the HTTP server, use the loop back 127.0.0.1 IP. :
You should be confronted with the welcome screen, continue through the
configuration until you get to the integration wizard.
||Then you should finally get to the
integration wizard, this wizard will scan in an image board script of
your choice and attempt to make the few needed code changed to have tell
the tracker when new files were posted (and what they are). It
will also make a change to the links on the thumbnails of the board in
order to have users of the board link through the seed-finder script.
These are the only two real changes that re made.
If the wizard fails,
it might be helpful to check out EXAMPLEchan (don't confuse this with
TESTchan) which are scripts that have been manually edited/integrated to
work with seed support. It has a "What was changed.txt" file to
show exactly what was changed in the code of the script. You can
get linked to EXAMPLEchan (again, don't confuse it with TESTchan)
examples sections, look in "Older Examples".
You will need to repeated the wizard for every section of your image
board (assuming you are running multiple instances of the image board
script to get multiple sections)
finally as the message says, MAKE A LINK TO YOU SeedSupport.php FILE ON
YOUR SITE. When making
made a place in the navigation bar, and on the main welcome page.
This link will be important because it is the way users take to become
seeders. If you click on the link you will see three important
- The guide link to lets users become seeders
- The report link to report illegal-images/files
- ImageBoard-Tracker administration login
IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER
- You (the admin(s) of the ImageBoard-Tracker), have the ability
to remove files from the seeds that have been uploaded to them via
the board (by their default choice)
- Such file-recalls do not occur automatically, users can repot
them easily, but an admin/janitor of the tracker must ok the recall.
IF USERS ABUSE THE REPORT FUNCTION BAN THEM. Seriously,
set a no-tolerance policy on this, the report system is setup to
protect them, and the way I see it, an attack against the report
system is an attack against the board.
- If you ever need to uninstall the ImageBoard-Tracker, your image
board scripts should have backup copies in their original
directories. Of course, you should have made backups of your
board scripts before installing shit, but to be on the safe side,
during installation the tracker creates them automatically.
Restoring the backups will uninstall/disconnect the tracker.
