    I installed and activated the plugin-sanitizehtml , restarted NodeBB as instructed, saved the default plug-in settings from ACP.
    But, now all my HTML tags have been stripped off (I can tell by looking at the source)
    What am I missing ?
    BTW, I uninstalled the Markdown-plugIn before installing the sanitizehtml plugIn.

    Is there any built in extensibility to the NodeBB composer that would allow you to submit additional data along with a submitted topic or post?

    So for example, say you want the users to submit some data to describe their post in a way that is useful for your system, is there a built in extension point that would allow you to add a field (text, select, whatever) to the composer and have that data stored alongside the post?

    I was able to achieve something like this by hacking the extended data by using tags that are automatically created when the user fills in my custom fields. It works for this scenario, but it would be great if there was a better way to do this.

    In addition to being able to add custom data to posts, it would be great if you could specify that the custom extended fields only apply to some categories in your system.

    Actually, yes. That is something I've been wanting to do. I jumped into NodeBB development as a total newbie to Javascript, so I probably have a good perspective for beginners. I have some formal education in technical writing as well. ๐Ÿ“–

    Please do this! ๐Ÿ‘ We need more tutorials and technical guides. I've been trying to immerse myself more in the source and writing plugins so I can write some stuff for the community.

    @AOKP Yup, ended up going with it. The change in syntax is irritating though.
