    @[email protected] hello! Unfortunately I'm busy this coming Tuesday but would be interested to chat about doing something in the future. Something I should be clear about first though is that I'm not involved in Podcamp Toronto or really in the podcasting community at all these days. I ended my last podcast around 2010, so most of my direct experience really is "historical" lol.

    Just as an update, (incase anyone else has this problem), chatgtp was quite good sorting out, and removing older versions, and said:

    The naming difference between node and nodejs primarily stems from historical reasons and package management conventions.
    In some Linux distributions, including Debian and its derivatives like Ubuntu, the package for Node.js is named nodejs to avoid a conflict with another package called node. This node package is unrelated to Node.js and is used for a different purpose.
    The naming convention was introduced to prevent potential conflicts between Node.js and the unrelated node package. However, this led to confusion for users accustomed to using the node command to execute Node.js scripts. To address this confusion, symbolic links or alternatives are often used to allow the node command to point to the nodejs executable.
    While the naming convention can indeed be confusing, it's a result of the need to avoid conflicts and maintain compatibility with existing packages. Efforts have been made to streamline this naming difference in newer versions of Node.js, but it may still persist in certain distributions and setups.

    Are you sure you want to use Apache web server? Even lightweight nginx working as reverse proxy can be easily overloaded with normal traffic. And you will see a result like this. Similar to attacking php-based forum with ddos-bots traffic.

    Bluescreen rate-limiting high traffic will help to reduce server load so you want to leave it as it is.

    A better idea is to install firewall or similar software to deny traffic from problematic IPs/countries/etc.

    @Mia-smith said in Need suggestion: Experiencing Persistent API Error:

    I also check this : https://community.nodebb.org/topic/17758/error-permission-for-opt-config-nodebb-in-installing-with-dockerlooker But I have not found any solution.

    Do you have any other problems with your Docker install? For example NodeBB can show all users IPs as localhost if server ports are blocked (communication between Docker app and host machine).

    It worked OK and stopped working?

    Hi,

    I'm wondering if it is possible (maybe by Plugin) to add special "Labels" to posts, like these ...

    Good/Bad Shape of Post Good/Bad Spelling of Post Excellent Post Impolite Disrespectful Missing Basic Post Requirements Escalating / De-Escalating Post

    Connected with every such label is a detailed description what this Label is meaning.

    Example

    Missing Basic Post Requirements

    If you came here because someone flagged your post with this label, you are asked to do the following:

    Read this text carefully Fix your post in all stated attributes Be aware that your reputation score may suffer, if you do not fix this If you fixed your post, you may ask a moderator for feedback and finally to remove the label, if resolved.

    For a post in a technical forum like this one here, please take care of the following:

    Spelling: Use correct spelling and grammar. Write in full sentences. Shape: Create your post, so one can easily read it. Use paragraphs, clear language, maybe use headers. Informations: Supply concrete Informations about your problem Facts: Supply entered commands and output given by those commands. Supply Screenshots only if text based information is not available or Screenshots are more useful in your case than text Politeness: Uphold Politeness at all times. No abusive words. Request: Phrase a request, how others can help you here. What do you want?

    Reputation Score Impact

    Starting from 5 own posts flagged with this label, every further post with this label reduces reputation score by 1

    Other Ideas about that topic

    The labels may be visible in Forum/Subforum-View The lables should be editable by Permission which may be granted to users and groups Moderators may be informed about certain Label-Assignments (Disrespectful, Impolite, ...) Moderators can clear labels Disable User-Labels for certain Posts (After a moderator review the situation, it's no longer useful to have user labels, so a moderator may disable user-labels)

    @julian Yes, I have a lot of examples. I was thinking I would work through Harmony and submit PRs to it. Seems like the right thing to do. However, if you want to see for yourself, I think you should run this forum through the sitechecker.pro, it is very illuminating. In the last few weeks, I have learned a lot about how pages are viewed and processed by analytics platforms. For now, I have turned off analysis of my forum so I can hit my target score for the rest of my site. When I spin it up again, I will provide more details. I am also learning what portions of the forum I should hide from analyis/spiders.

    @baris addressed one issue I found last week.

    Link Preview Image Challenges in SEO optimization, and related topics

    @baris is this update to Harmony published already? And, do I just run an upgrade with npm or ./nodebb?

    The other thing, front of mind, is there are some "category" links somewhere, and it appears to be a partial "/category/" which is a 404; my guess is that it receives context on click.

    Canonical URLs are having some issues pretty broadly.

    Page meta-tag descriptions are the same for almost every page.

    Social Graph data has overlapping issues with the above two issues.

    @frontendjulien It's this one:

    migrate your old crappy forum to NodeBB. Contribute to akhoury/nodebb-plugin-import development by creating an account on GitHub.

    It's been awhile, and it only imports a forum to an older version of NodeBB, but upgrading afterwards is pretty straightforward.

    Otherwise I would still recommend contacting Lincoln Russell to see if he's interested in helping you out.

    TIL pressing F5 in notepad will insert the Time & Date stamp. Which is nice, so probably I'll just write a script for myself to automate the timestamp insertion as it should not be dynamically on site loading/refreshing - also performance wise it might lead to issues. Don't know if there is a way to add this functionality to the composer though - similiar like for the emojis. If there is a comprehensive guide to do so or at least to get started with it I'll add it to my todo-if-too-much-time list. šŸ˜‰
