TinyIB - A Lightweight and Efficient Image Board Script

Got database? Get speed. Use MySQL or SQLite for an efficient set-up able to handle high amounts of traffic.

No database? No problem. Store posts as text files for a portable set-up capable of running on virtually any PHP host.

To allow new threads without requiring an image, see the Text Board Mode page.

For demos see the TinyIB Installations page. githalytics.com alpha

Moderating

  1. If you are not logged in already, log in to the management panel by clicking [Manage].
  2. On the board, tick the checkbox next to the offending post.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page.
  4. Click Delete with the password field blank.
    • From this page you are able to delete the post and/or ban the author.

Updating

  1. Obtain the latest release.
    • If you installed via Git, run the following command in TinyIB's directory:
      • git pull
    • Otherwise, download and extract a zipped archive.
  2. Note which files were modified.
    • If settings.default.php was updated, migrate the changes to settings.php
      • Take care to not change the value of TINYIB_TRIPSEED, as it would result in different secure tripcodes.
    • If other files were updated, and you have made changes yourself:
      • Visit GitHub and review the changes made in the update.
      • Ensure the update does not interfere with your changes.
