You can enable the post queue for new users in post settings, but if you want to queue everything in one category you have to turn to plugins.
I actually created one that might help a little: https://github.com/oplik0/nodebb-plugin-category-queue
But because it was created just for my needs it only queues topics and not every new post (if you post something in a topic from that category it won't be queued, but if you create a new topic it will).
It can be easily modified to do that tho (look here for explanation on how to get cid from such a post).
Custom homepage plugin not working
This plugin not working https://github.com/Insiderto/nodebb-plugin-custom-homepage#readme
Tommy Vercetti, is that you? I'm actually literally installing Vice City right now, what are the odds.
Anyway -- custom homepage is deprecated, use custom pages plugin instead, create the page you want, and then set it as homepage in the homepage settings in the ACP.
There's a non-zero chance custom pages doesn't work in latest master, but should be fine in 1.10.2.
@julian Well, on v1.10.2 I've got problems with custom-pages. It doesn't really work and the templates created don't seem to include any URLs/redirects/permalinks.
Can you repro these on a brand new install of 1.10.2? How about 1.10.1?
