I've been trying to use nodebb-plugin-import on our live forum after successfully importing on localhost but I've been running into these issues. (Both sites are 1.8.2)
First, the plugin is not found by Install Plugins > Search, so I
npm install it. Then activate and rebuild.
It's not showing up under Plugins, and going directly to plugins/import returns a 404, but it does show up if I search for it in the Admin settings search box, it returns several settings on the plugin's page!
Already tried deleting and re-installing the forum, no change.
