@StuartH it may have to do with how often NodeBB calls the filter:footer.build hook, and since it's a SINGLE PAGE APP, it's not much, I've seen that weirdness, but I am not too sure what to do about it, the filter is pretty straight forward. what you can do to verify that's the footer code is being generated correctly, is to view-source of the page, then search for nodebb-plugin-42 comment.
@faizanzahid Those in the screenshot are the global privileges. You want to change the category privileges, selecting each category (see up to the right), at least the root ones. There is also a button to copy privileges to the children categories.
Like discourse where all the posts can be displayed in one page and also can be filtered by their category? I feel that model makes category more like a tag and allows people to see everything at once.
Is there technical issue why this cannot be achieved? Maybe it can be a theme idea?
I really like nodebb as a fast and modern forum technical wise, but also enjoy the UI philosophy behind discourse..
