December 2018 -- Changelog





  • Updated again to fix the thing where full text quotes with a reply were being removed




5 posts were split to a new topic: quotes are broken

I updated and changed a thing to fix the thing that @gord0 mentioned.


Updated again. I am going to turn on the read only content security policy to see if it will break things.

Is that so no one can snag our snagged photos?

Hmm, I don’t think there is a way to do that. If they come to the site it is trivial to download a copy of any photos.

The content security policy is more to prevent cross site scripting and data injection attacks. I don’t expect any malicious actors on our small site, but I prefer to play it safe. Mozilla has a good write up on it:

I just remembered about 10ish years ago, that was something people tried to implement on forums.

Another thing I’ve seen, even on forums with only a few users, is bots making posts filled with jibberish, links, and pictures. Which I assume was to simply act as a mirror.

Ahh, yeah. I remember those days of preventing hotlinking. I’ve got something that should stop hotlinking (copying just the link and wasting my precious bandwidth on another site). I didn’t both doing anything to prevent copying directly (downloading the image directly, right clicking and saving) since it is trivial to get past.

I’ve already hacked GX. I’m in ur base, killing ur d00dz.
