Which seems to be nodebb's approach in general w.r.t. stuff like this
In general, yes. We try to not muck around with existing installs too much, but plugins are a little more fast and loose with things like this. Will keep it in mind 😄
I recently deployed a new public Ubuntu server with Nodebb 1.4.3 and then upgraded to 1.4.4. For some reason, my plugin's template files are not being loaded into the nodebb/plugin/templates directory now.
Has anyone seen anything like this before?
Locally, when I do a "./nodebb dev" startup I see this in my logs:
6/3 16:14  - verbose: [plugins] /header.tpl replaced by ...
On my public server I don't see this even when doing the dev start.
To set up this new server, I followed the docs here: https://nodebb.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing/os/ubuntu.html
Found the solution, It turns out that I had missed this blog post before upgrading to 1.4.x:
