What's New (1.5.15): Fixes an issue where the board's default language would not be used if the web browser returns a malformed language header. ShiPainter has also been updated, as there was a newer version I didn't know about. This new version is apparently a hotfix that was released years ago but had the same version number as the one I've been using. Testing has shown that the new ShiPainter works well.

Critical update for modified/legacy oekakis: If you have versions 1.5.5 through 1.5.9 and don't want to update to the latest version (for example, due to the required database recode), here is a security patch (91K). This corrects a critical security problem with versions prior to 1.5.10 which allows picture titles, comments, and passwords to be altered by guests. Only get this patch if you do not want to update to a version newer than 1.5.9.

Wacintaki Poteto is a CSS conversion of Oekaki Poteto 5.x. It is a complete Oekaki BBS with many new features compared to Poteto, including full support for Shi-Painter and Chibi Paint, file uploads, various fixes, and much lower bandwidth usage. Wacintaki also has a nifty resize option, which resizes the paint applet to fit your whole screen (no more teeny applet windows)!

This version is not supported by Theo Chakkapark or anyone else involved with the original Oekaki Poteto project. For technical support, please post issues with this version on the NineChime Forum.

Wax Poteto 5.8.10 (discontinued, supported)

What's New (5.8.10): Fixed password recovery bug and changed references of “MSN” to “Skype”.

New templates: Custom templates created with the basic template editor are compatible with 5.7.0. If you wish to update them to the new format, simply import and re-save them in the new template editor. Custom and “advanced” templates may require further updating after being converted. Required and optional variables are identified in the editor. Please make back-ups of your existing custom templates!

Wax Poteto is now discontinued. Fixes will be released, but the board has been superseded by Wacintaki.



New for 1.1.1: Updated to fix a connection problem with the 1.5.x database layer. Supports Wacintaki, Wax Poteto, PotatoPoteto, and the original OekakiPoteto.

MBackup is a script to back-up the member profiles on an OekakiPoteto or compatible oekaki board. It allows for several recovery options, and is intended as a quick, easy way to back-up your profiles, add members from other OP boards to a “master” board, or move an OP board to a new server.

It will only back-up the member profiles, not posts and comments. Use a database administration tool, like phpMyAdmin, to back-up an entire database.

OekakiBBS Import


New for 1.2.1: Updated to fix a connection problem with the 1.5.x database layer. Supports Wacintaki, Wax Poteto, and the original OekakiPoteto.

OekakiBBS Import will convert an OekakiBBS v1.32 board to an OekakiPoteto, Wax Poteto, or Wacintaki BBS. Versions of OekakiBBS older than v1.32 have not been tested.
