Am coming here from 1 year of using Discourse Forum and found this one looks more fancy specially when it comes to shape and design and more faster.
but i have few questions before i decide to go with NODE BB and i hope you can help me with that.
1- MOST IMPORTANT: how the backups carried here ? is there any officially endorsed plugin or plugins to make the backup process easy ? can we send the backups to google drive for example and how easy is the process to callback the backups in case of any problem with the forum ? for example in wordpress you can do it by one click through Vaultpress
2- Can i serve google adsense banners on my community and how ?
3- What is the best and easiest way to install this software on Digital ocean ?
4- Themes and plugins installation also needs long procedure like Discourse ? building the container takes ages there am i going to face the same thing with this software?
5- How the software update process is ? can be done by one click ?
6- does this software needs special email configurations like Dsicourse to deliver the emails ? because in Discourse you need to integrate the website with 3rd part SMTP server to get the emails.
