Technically, there is no need to run npm update for packages other than nodebb-* packages. So all you really need to do is npm install.
However, you'd want to update the nodebb plugins/themes, so:
ls nodebb-* | xargs npm update // I do not take responsibility for this command, if it burns your house down...
If you run into errors specified by #6, please do an npm rebuild to patch that right up.
yup, i tried to add and modifying existing category but it failed. i also got trouble with my redis, i think i will use mongo as my DB than redis, i prefer use redis only for cache ing or as message broker.
is there any how to install with mongoDB?
i try to set user and password in mongo and run node app.js --setup and choose mongo as my db but also failed. may be nodebb need specific database name?
thanks for your response
Ask, and ye shall receive
hmm lemme try
@testerool any chance of translating a language pack for us? I can walk you through it or you can have a look at the spanish/french/german translations as a guide in the public/language folder
@julian I did actually use git stash then git pop and my whole template was broken for some reason. I didn't spend enough time to figure out if it was caching issues as there's only like 3 lines I changed in 3 files so it was quick to recover from, but I was thinking for the future.
I did rename some of the categories to use them - however - my forum is only using 4 right now.
I'd suggest that the NodeBB install only come with 1 or 2 pre configured categories if you won't allow deletion of any existing ones. Can I delete them from the redis database in the meantime? They are all indeed empty.
My website is developed using node.js as an express app. Could someone give me any pointers on how I could use NodeBB's user signup / auth system / user session in my express app too?
Is it possible to hook into the NodeBB app so it and my website app run in the same node process and share user session that way? Or would it be better to separate the node processes and communicate user info another way?
@StuartH, you'll also notice that pesky little box around the "Search" button is gone now.
Thanks to Bootswatch creator @thomashpark, who went and fixed it up lickity split
Yep looks much better for that small change, says the man who has no clue
Haha, thanks for the kind words @theepiphany! We really appreciate it.
You'll notice several Canadian-isms in NodeBB still. (e.g. the "favourite" button)
Let us know where your forum is, we'd love to add it to our unofficial directory!
