Social network project still under construction
This project is still in development stage, not all features implemented. It is hosted in same hosting as my Personal Site. You can also check my Twitter account if interested. A valid account is required to be able to post here. Register first if you don't have one. An invite code is also required to complete the registration.
Added a database backup script for admin to be able to export database contents more easily. Helpful in case of any failure or during server reinstall/migration/etc.
Added logging to the search form. Everything including anything suspicious and/or spammy will be logged and offenders might be banned and/or reported. So be careful and don't spam using search form.
Added host whitelist to bot trap page. Now visitors from certain hosts such as archive.org and others will not be automatically banned. Others will still be banned so do not try to visit the page unless you want to be perma-banned from this site.
Updated ban management page, added scrollbar colors to stylesheet, cleaned up some of old bans that are no longer needed.
The development of this platform is currently is in a very early stage. The registration is only with invite code since most of functions on this site are incomplete and might not work properly at this time. You can contact me through my personal site or via twitter, just do not send spam as it is not desired.
4chan. Their policy about mass-blocking ip ranges. Total nonsense. Can't post w/o 4chan pass on my vpn. Apparently such ranges are too "abusive" so their justification is just block them w/o trying to actually verify it. And purchasing the pass is the pain in the ass too. A need for cryptocurency provider is just unjust :\
Small bug fixed in single post view. Finally it's a way less of problems to deal with in the world.
User settings page implemented, password can now finally be changed.
Generated invite codes are no longer stored in plain text, each code must be securely stored upon generation.
Anonymous posting can now be easily disabled along the other options, useful when registration is also disabled and/or invite-only.
Registration is now invite-only, invite code generation and verification works fine.
Disabled registration as most of features are not complete yet. Might enable later or set to be invite-only, with the latter feature not yet implemented as of this date.
Google go home, you're drunk.
Added site configuration script (setting up important configuration variables)
Added db setup script to generate correct contiguration file when database connection does not work.
Some improvements behind the scenes were done to the code of this site. Mainly bugfixes and management features not visible to regular users.
Bugs found, bugs fixed. Special cases of certain parameters are now handled correctly. Returns 404 instead of unexpected results where a 404 should be.
Auto-banning implementation improved. Now bans IP addresses generating too many 404 errors in short time. No unban by captcha yet, so don't get accidentally banned.
First auto-banning implementation using hidden link to bot trap. Bans all bots ignoring robots.txt, might reduce some spam.
IP Ban system implemented. Will be useful to ban spammers in the future. No auto-banning yet though.
Admin users can now edit / delete all posts. No more using of external database management tools for such a purposes. Minimizes hassle when dealing with spam posts.
Fixed captcha for post form
Post should not be created when image input field is missing from form submit when using image post type.
Administration panel under construction. Site management non-functional at this time.
Implemented more logging, added correct headers where needed (posts, register/login pages, etc.).
Images included in posts are now directly requested using secure protocol. No more insecure to secure page redirection when loading the page.
Soup.io going down soon
It appears soup.io will be closed on 2020-07-20, there's already a huge lag as every1 is trying to save posts & images and there've been a bunch of errors while it tries to load almost any page. Saving old posts has been a very annoying so far I guess.
Still under construction
This site is currently under contruction, the visual editor is currently not working properly. Also there's some spam attempted to be posted on this site but it is not getting through as spambots don't even attempt to solve captcha nor load the captcha image as I see in the logs :\
Added alt tag to images of photo posts, they might be needed some times. Might include some more updates sooner or later.
First spam message logged. At least it din't go through. The captcha feature blocked it :\
Added a first implementation of text formattiing to visual editor. Now selection can be formatted as bold, italic and underline, no way to undo it though w/o editing html
Strikethrough added, fixed a small bug in editor.
When soup.io stops working after a while since purchasing the paid subscription
The handling of divs in visual editor is now improved
The new lines are correctly rendered from within divs
With </div><div> formation replaced with line breaks
though something might still be buggy
The visual editor has been improved. It handles new lines better, extra divs are not inserted on each line.
Also extra line break at the end of post is removed while using the visual editor.
No formatting options yet though.
Created an experimental WYSIWYG editor prototype. All changes done in editor are reflected in textarea and vice-versa. No formatting buttons yet.
Tags must be entered inside textarea instead. Tags that are not allowed are excluded upon post rendeding. XSS still can be triggeded while editing text but not when post loads in feed.
Html in text field enabled, showing only a select list of tags and attributes.
This is a test
Mobile support added. Now page renders correct in most of mobile devices.
Implemented tag pages. Special characters shown in tags are now escaped correctly while used in links.
Initial tag implementation completed. Also posts created by the same owner can now be deleted.
Fixed sql injection and xss in posts. No more strange bugs.
Fixed editing of text posts. Also tags are now displayed if present. Tag editing feature is not yet implemented at this time.
Registration and login works. Happy posting :) And le post editing is now implemented :D
This is working so far I guess :D, and login is working too :). No registration yet, can't edit posts either :\
Image uploading now works. Here's a neat image of unusual piano called Steinway Uninote.
Image post implementation is on the way.
Registered users are now highlighted, only implemented on database backend, no user registration possible.
New color theme, replacing default.
Refresh should not resend form data on page reload, also post errors display correctly if any exist.
First posting implementation. No user login/registration yet, user must type name and captcha, added simple styling for posts.
Minimal functionality implemented, no post form yet.
