@julian Right, I understand. It just makes it difficult to migrate from a more traditional forum like phpBB (which is the most, or perhaps second-most, used forum software today). I think making it easier to migrate from phpBB's format could only help nodeBB gain more ground 🙂 Here is the github issue I opened a couple weeks ago. It was closed, though I hope we can reopen it. I'm more than willing to contribute. Let me know if there's anything I can do.
@baris Guess that should have been the obvious, and yeah, we had some code that would auto generate a background for users. Disabling that did fix it. I really appreciate the help, feel kind of stupid now lol. Besides that being fixed now we still have an ongoing issue with plugins not working like emoji's, shoutbox, and so on. And words of advice on that?
It is a bit different from the navigation features that are on top, because it actually changes the layout of the site.
There is already pagination customization feature in the use profile. I think that is perhaps a better place for it.
Having a shortcut like that on the home page seem pretty nifty, but right now it is very hard to discover. If we group a few features in the widget on the bottom right and made it a bit more discoverable, that could also work well.
But I would recommend against putting anything like that in the nav bar on top.
