Thanks a lot, @baris! On the other side, now I learned a little about mongodb and the inner workings of nodebb.
@pitaj said in Skin display issue (noskin):
@torn2 the sounds are loaded from an external CDN. It automatically loads the latest version.
Unfortunately some skins were released with the latest version being made for bootstrap 4.
But we're running version 1.6.1 and haven't upgraded and the skins worked fine. About two days ago they suddenly broke???
Changing the bootstrap url from "/latest" to "/3.3.7" in two places (src/client/account/settings.js and src/middleware/header.js) gave us an immediate fix to this problem.
And just random kudos for how easy it is to find and fix things in NodeBB. Definitely my favorite forum software!
Damn, I lost users because of this, first time I'm a little disappointed by NodeBB
Here is a quick fix for webmasters experiencing this persona skins issue
cd NodeBB-* sed -i 's#bootswatch/latest#bootswatch/3.3.7#g' public/src/client/account/settings.js src/middleware/header.js ./nodebb build ./nodebb restart
Hope this helps
Edit: Sorry I might have been a little rude here, NodeBB rules of course, keep up the great work
Just FYI, you don't need to run manual changes. You can just
git pull now that we've released a hotfix (as long as you're on v1.7.x).
@annihil that's a good question. What version are you on now?
@pitaj Latest, 1.7.4
I'm using this script to update
cd NodeBB-1.X.X ./nodebb stop cd .. redis-cli save sudo cp /var/lib/redis/dump.rdb ~/dump-1.X.X.rdb wget https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/archive/v1.X.Y.tar.gz tar czf backup-1.X.X.tar.gz NodeBB-1.X.X mv NodeBB-1.X.X NodeBB-1.X.Y tar xf v1.X.Y.tar.gz cd NodeBB-1.X.Y npm update ./nodebb upgrade or ./nodebb build ./nodebb start
X.X is the
current version and
X.Y is the
but I would prefer to have just to
git pull of course ^^
@annihil this should work, but definitely back up the whole
nodebb folder and your database first.
To achieve this, we're going to do the following steps:
Okay, now here's the respective CLI commands:
$ git init $ git remote add origin https://github.com/nodebb/nodebb.git $ git fetch $ git reset --hard origin/v1.7.x $ git checkout v1.7.x
Hopefully that works for you. It certainly helps that you're already on latest v1.7.x.
Thanks, it worked flawlessly
