I would advise using Nginx infront of it.
You can google NodeBB Nginx Config and you'll have one you can copy/paste.
Nginx will then be on port 80 and you can close 4567 on your FW.
Been away from nodeBB for a bit - the last project I was working with it for went another way. Have something new in the works but I'm still trying to find some integrations.
I've been asked to see if anyone's had any success with a cart integration. Something where the forums and the cart SSO and are "thematicly" seemles without having to spend a lot of jiggerypoking keeping themes in sync.
I expect this is a no, but.
For that matter, anyone just have the SSO part down?
