Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, libarchive.org for more info) to build successfully.

      When writing/reading quotes.txt, ignore first 2 lines if WWIV-type · 4d018183
      Rob Swindell authored
      WWIV writes 2 lines of metadata to the beginning of its quotes.txt file created for external message editors. Its not clear yet what these lines should contain, but the first line apparently should contain a '#' character since BREdit checks for this character before deciding to throw-away/ignore these lines (don't use them for quoted text). Thanks mlong for this tip!
      
      So if the external editor is set to "WWIV CHAIN.TXT" in SCFG (even if the door doesn't need/use it), then the quotes.txt file created by Synchronet will contain the extra 2 lines. We're just writing a # to the first line and the second line is blank.
      
      This fixes reported issue #188.

      Allow text of all guest information prompts to be overridden in modopts.ini · e7579187
      Rob Swindell authored
      By setting guest_name, guest_email, guest_location, or guest_referral to any
      truthy value, a prompt will be display. By setting it to a string (instead of
      true), that string will be displayed. I'm not sure how I feel about this kind
      of tri-state setting (true/false/string), but it does reduce the number of
      settings/options. The alternative is to have a separate boolean and string
      setting for each prompt (which I first considered).
      
      So, as of now:
      
      guest_name = false <- no prompt for Guest's name
      guest_name = "" <- no prompt for Guest's name
      guest_name = true (the default) <- default prompt text for Guest's name
      guest_name = "Enter your name, dude" <- replaces prompt text for Guest's name
      
      For enter trailing white-space and ctrl-a codes, use string literals, e.g.
      guest_name: "\x01hEnter your name, dude: "

      Guest user prompts can be disabled via modopts.ini [logon] settings · 491228fe
      Rob Swindell authored
      guest_name = false will disable name prompt
      guest_email = false will disable the email address prompt
      guest_location = false will disable the location prompt
      guest_referral = false will disable the "where'd you hear about this BBS" prompt
      
      Note, at minimum, I do recommend prompting for the guest's email address so that if they send the sysop feedback (e.g. ask a question), they at least have some hope of receiving a reply.

      Add support for optiona "approved" option to be specify moderator's email addr · ec234452
      Rob Swindell authored
      Apparently required by some news servers.
      As requested via IRC:
      <poindexter> Hi all, I've got a weird request. I'd like to post to a newsgroup that relies on automoderation. You need to add an approved: header to any posting to have it be accepted - keeps the non-techie riffraff away. is there a way to do that with newslink.js?
