So i decide to use nodebb, and the installation instructions were extremely confusing and not very organized.... There are tons of errors throughout the process and you don't even mention the need of a web server such as nginx....
And when i finally got nodebb to work, which was a nightmare to accomplish, it literally breaks in a matter of minutes of my jusy doing some basic things in the admin dashboard
Nodebb seriously has the worst mobile/tablet optimization i have ever seen in years, half of it's admin control panel features break it, and it's ridiculously hard to fix an issue with it as debugging is extremely hard.
Even the support is terrible, the people here don't seem to know what they're talking about, the forum here is very inactive with hardly any people on and getting proper support is almost impossible. A guy had the same issue as mine, and it's been 14 days since he created his thread and still not a single reply!!!! And the amount of times people keep throwing their digital ocean referral links in threads is just ridiculous.
Nodebb, get your stuff together.... You have just lost a user
(I don't care if this sounds rude to anyone or if you don't like what you just read, this is the reality and you'll have to accept it.)
