I absolute want to migrate one of my forum to NodeBB but I'm looking for a theme which looks like a forum and not what it looks now like "latests posts" on the index page even if it doesn't look bad but not my cup of tea.
Is there any theme which corresponds to my needs or a custom theme is the best solution in this case?
I don't know if it exists but a vertical postbit looks awesome and what about another header because the one by default looks tiny?
You don't need to run ./nodebb upgrade every time you make changes. You just need to run ./nodebb build. You can use the --dev flag to make it faster because you don't need minification during dev.
You can also use grunt to dev but you'll need to disable the emoji plugin.
