I am trying to add a sorting mechanism to the recent page (forum/recent) exactly like the one the category page (/forum/category/) where the topics can be sorted either from newest to oldest, oldest to newest, most posts. is that possible?
Question: Can each topic have cover image to look topic list page like image gallery?
I'm not sure if I explained properly but I really wanna use this feature.
I think it's possible but I'm not sure if I can do this by myself lol
What I'm saying is that it's normally list of topic subject Text Only when you click any forum categories.
But it will be much better if topic list showing with each topic cover image(preview image), for example, for viral photo categories.
Just like pinterest grid layout.
Can I know if this feature is easy to implement?
And can anyone possibly show this feature if already using on your forum?
Also looking for developers who can help me forum modifications.
@lukelarris What you propose is definitely possible. We just haven't tried it.
In app.js, we listen for a passed-in argument called config
By default, it looks for a config.json present in the root directory
If you ran NodeBB with ./nodebb start --config="/relative/or/absolute/path/to/another/config", it should correctly start NodeBB using the second config file.
I don't know what would happen if you pointed --config to a non-existant file -- would NodeBB run through the setup script and save the new config? Beats me.
