@teh_g you can use n to install a later version of Node if you want. Look up "n install NodeJS" it's super easy.
Error with nodebb-plugin-markdown

Hello everyone. I am having some trouble with the markdown plugin. I upgraded to NodeBB version
0.10.21.10.2 and in the process, the nodebb-plugin-markdown doesn't want to work properly anymore. When you try to make a post on my forum, the console gives this error:
My next solution was to try and rebuild NodeBB. I ran ./nodebb build, and then ./nodebb start, and I got the following in my logs:

Would anyone be able to help me debug this or find a solution so I can use markdown on my site again? I will also note that the Markdown extension in the ACP is not visible or reachable at all either.
Do you mean 1.10.2 or 0.10.2 (the second of which is quite old).
What version of Node, npm, database type and version, reverse proxy setup (if applicable). Did you run
./nodebb upgradeand did it complete successfully?
@dannydk6-0 The error stack trace is missing a few lines, and it seems an error is causing the markdown plugin to be not initialized. Can you post the rest of the error from

Thank you for the swift responses!
@PitaJ I did mean version 1.10.2, I corrected that typo in my original post
Below are the specs you requested:
node: v8.12.0 npm: v5.8.0 database: mongo v3.6.6 reverse proxy: nginx redirect
I am running the NodeBB server on an EC2 instance, and my mongodb database is in mLabs. I ran
./nodebb upgradewith no issues.
I have pulled up the full stack trace and it looks as such:

It seems like you have the latest version of the markdown plugin but not the latest code from NodeBB's master branch, which is causing the issue. I suggest pulling the latest code form NodeBB master. That should get rid of the error you are getting. Other option is to downgrade markdown to an earlier version like 8.8.0

That did the trick. Now nodebb-plugin-markdown is working great after pulling the latest updates from the NodeBB repository !!!
