The application works exactly like website as paste-it or pastebin or github's, the difference is Paste Board allow you to store text within your board installation.
Typical description of the application based on Google's description of Pastebin:
Paste Board is a type of IPB application where anyone can store text for a certain period of time. This type of application is mainly used by programmers to store pieces of source code or configuration information, but anyone can basically share any type of text.
Having the application installed within your board installation break's the time limit, as Paste Board will store the files/codes forever in your database.
Here's a full features list
Paste Board: Type plain text or code and share it across IPB or anywhere on the Internet! Host your own pasted content, clip, and modify to your needs. You can even share in forum topics (posts, signatures, about me or any location that uses BBCode feature) with its own formatting and themes to fit your forum skins.

Q. What is the difference between the Paste Board and codes in IPB Editor?
A. Paste Board will allow you to"keep" the code in its own file, you don;t have to search thousands of posts to find your codes, your codes will be in one place (Your Control Panel)
Moreover; Paste Board allows the "related to" feature for registered members, which means you can always find all related codes you share for certain topic
Also, Paste Board uses different highlighter that supports 30 languages
Q. Can guest post their codes?
A. Yes, they can if you allow them from ACP settings of the system, although, they will not be able to use the "related feature" nor can use tagging system.
We have added a notification for guests that will encourage them to register so that they don't have to put the reCaptcha code every time they want to share code files.
Q. Who is it good for?
It's good for anyone, coders/ skinners can use it for sharing their codes and with the amount of support they give, this should come handy
As for other members, since Paste Board support "Private" files, it can be used as Note keeper, where they can access their private notes from their control panel.
Of course there is no limit to the usage of the system, but those were just an example
Q. How to support more languages in the Highlighter?
A. You can PM me with the language and I will create it for you, of course there is additional fees for that.
If you have any suggestions/ ideas please let me know.
We accept custom work, so in-case you need to customize the application for your needs, please let us know, of course additional fees will be added.
