    Is there a list of currently supported themes somewhere? When I am searching I am only finding stuff that has not been updated in many years.

    Even with the 4 themes that come with NodeBB, it seems like only Persona is updated regularly.

    I wanted to use Lavender but it has not been updated in long time and the link for the guide does not work.

    There's no magic forum you can build and have it be popular. You'd need either a forum about something, however chances are whatever you think of will be saturated with forums already (Bitcoin for example) or something brand new that no ones done, but it won't be long before someone else does.

    No plugin will make your site amazing. running forums is an uphill struggle. Someone will piss you off, you'll ban them, someone else will cry about user X being banned, rinse and repeat. Starting out as a new forum now is tough. Unless you've already got a large number of members and transferring to nodebb (even then, people hate change, and you'll no doubt get the token "developer" who preaches that anything that isn't built in php is rubbish). But again, you can't please everyone.

    I hope this is the most up to date version. You don't have to import database every time, to check if everything is parsed right. Regexes are used always on 'just after import' version of database.

    Preparse regex:

    content = content.replace(/<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="(.*)">.*<\/a><!-- m -->/g, '$1'); content = content.replace(/<!--.*?--><img src="\{SMILIES_PATH\}\/.+?" alt="(.+?)" title=.+?\/><!--.*?-->/g, ' $1 '); content = content.replace(/[(.*?):\w+]/g, "[$1]"); content = content.replace(/[(\/\w+):\w+]/g, "[$1]");

    Postparse regex:

    content = content.replace(/\\[/g, '['); content = content.replace(/\\]/g, ']'); content = content.replace(/\@"(\w+)?" said:/g, '@$1 said:');

    Bonus - Selenium IDE for Firefox script, which makes forum private 😛 You need sideflow extension to use it. Use it at categories page in ACP to see how it works.
