System Requirements

You just need a web server with PHP support.

  • PHP v5.3 or higher.
  • PHP module mbstring for full UTF-8 support.
  • PHP ZipArchive OR unzip before send files (more than 2 files).

Note: If you have a problem with your server path, edit the header.php and install.php file, and change PATH_ROOT constant.
if (!defined('PATH_ROOT')) define('PATH_ROOT', __DIR__.DS); or if (!defined('PATH_ROOT')) define('PATH_ROOT', './');

Post format

Since Flatboard v1.0, it is now possible to choose between the BBcode or Markdown format, so the editor changes according to the choice. Be careful however, this choice will be made at the beginning of installation, it will not be possible to change there after without having traces in the discussions because the syntax is different.

Anonyme user / unique identity

With Flatboard it is possible to send messages anonymously, to do this simply leave the field blank username and Flatboard generate a user hash.
But if you wish to have a unique identity, you must insert your username followed by a hash (#) and your password is encrypted and truncated.
