@pitaj said in NodeBB v1.6.0 has been released!:
I suggest you try it. It has been tested with Gmail, but we haven't been able to test other providers there.
The switch offers no explanation and seems not to do anything.
The switch enables that configuration, but it only applies if an emailer plugin isn't activated.
OK, thanks for the explanation.
I think I will stick to the external SES plugin since, as far as I understand, this whole section is about using SMTP for sending e-mails which requires storing credentials in database. We use IAM roles to grant implicit permissions to use SES on instances that run our Forums - and nodebb-plugin-emailer-ses is able to pick that up.
@CaioDA Just disable them from the admin control panel. Options > Disable then Save.
Is it really that simple? Now I'm embarrassed... But, going along with what @planner said and @psychobunny pointed out, this is a very developer centered forum software with an initially steep learning curve. It's not quite plug and play. I recommend something like Foundation's Joyride to introduce new users to the system.
Update: But currently, there is no way to remove them completely (unless a forum restart is required or override them). That's a feature I'd love to see.
