One thing though that would make it perfect is to make nodebb able to also handle comments on blog / news posts. Kind of like Disqus.
This is something that I would really like to see before I make the switch too.
after using nodebb a lot , i strongly feel that users needs few features while writing a post using nodebb editor.
These are all possible already with markdown, do you mean they should be added to the editor toolbar in the composer?
