Welcome to the mitxela.com forum. I have no idea how active or useful this will be, but I've been getting a lot of emails lately asking questions, and I figured if these questions were answered here then at least there's a chance other people with the same questions can find the answers sooner.

The forum was written from scratch in PHP. It's fairly minimalist but one bonus feature is attaching images to posts, which I figured was pretty important and should be very easy to use.

Passwords are sent over a TLS-encrypted connection and stored as a salted MD5 hash. But it's still probably a bad idea to use the same password you'd use for your online bank.

If you discover any glitches or missing features let me know. Maybe even post a topic about it. Ho ho.

I've just added "code" tags to the BBCode. Not sure how I forgot to add that originally. Now we can quote source code like this:

Here is some source code


It's just a <pre> tag so it can also be used to muck about (here's hoping the css overflow works correctly):

Bringing this forum squarely into the 21st century, I've just added a couple of new features which have been missing for a while:

- You can now upload images in webp format. PHP GD can't resize an animated webp image, so if you try and upload an animated webp bigger than 800px it'll just reject it, but smaller animations are fine. I'll probably wait a few years before adding AVIF/JPEG XL support.

- You can now upload images directly from the clipboard. This is particularly useful if you want to post a screenshot. Windows has the Win+Shift+S shortcut, so you can select a rectangle on screen and paste it straight into the textarea. On linux I've set the same function using scrot in my i3 config:
bindsym $mod+Shift+s --release $exe "scrot -s ~/screenshots/`date '+%+4Y%m%d_%H%M%S'`.png -e 'xclip -selection clipboard -t image/png -i $f'"
(this saves the image too, but that isn't necessary)
