@psychobunny Hey! Good to see you're still out there lol. I used to do some modding on phpBB3, and had ported a good portion of ADR to the phpBB3 system about the time you started on this project, it looks like. I would love to get in touch and see if we could maybe continue this project, or if you'd be willing to collaborate on something similar.
@phenomlab I have a wordpress site that is closed from search bots, which automatically extracts content from some sites and translates the content. I wanted to use this plugin to fill the forum with news from my site, but I see that this will not work. Now I'm also thinking of using a third-party script or switching to discourse before it's too late
I think that the chat in NodeBB should integrate with either IRC or Matrix Chat. I know that Raocket.Chat, a meteor-based chat application has support for Matrix Chat (ether upcoming, or.... something. Here is a link to the relevant repo: https://github.com/RocketChat/Rocket.Chat.Federation
Integration with rocket.chat is an ideal option for a forum chat. They have the same stack of technologies, MIT License and rocket.chat features are much larger than the native chat. Why waste resources to improve the native chat, if there is a free rocket.chat? For example, how it is done in https://www.phpfox.com/chatplus/
This theme does not seem to be very friendly to the mobile chat function. You can't find a button to turn off chat on your mobile chat, which means you can't do anything else, and you'll have to reopen the site to fix the problem. So can we improve on this theme? Thank you very much.
