I believe there are widgets for each of those!
However, I'd implore you to consider information density- Most users are scared off by even too many categories- putting all that on the landing page will bounce a lot of users!
We've recently installed NodeBB and we wondered if it's possible to make a category "read-only". People will be able to view the forum but not post to it.
Also, is it possible to have certain categories "hidden" from people? We want only people in the "mods" group to be able to see and participate in those categories.
i think you can do that by setting appropriate privileges to mods and other users
@faizanzahid I'm not sure what you mean? Is it possible to "hide" categories from specific groups and vice-versa?
@kfirba yes, in the admin panel, you go to general -> privileges and configure the privileges for each category (which you select with the drop-down in the upper right)
