Tried to use guest mode in chrome with no go. So this is not cache related. Tips?
Anyone else experience this?
I was wondering if it is possible to post a new topic on all forums (also pinning it) as an administrator? At the moment, I have to go to every one of our 21 categories and re-create the topic in each one of them.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Only with plugins so far. Not even the 'clone' feature do that, it just copy selected posts to another topic but only in the same category.
It would be an interesting idea, maybe I could develop a plugin to do that, as soon as I have more free time
@jtsimoes thanks for your response. I wish the feature was there but
Well, I thought about using the write API to create a user interface for my admins on the main website that will simply use the API to create new topics. I will try to scan for a plugin that does that first, tho.
@kfirba I'm starting with your idea! (https://github.com/jtsimoes/nodebb-plugin-post-in-all-categories)
But instead of the plugin publish in all categories with just one click, I want it to let the user choose in which categories the plugin should publish (but, of course, still being able to select all of them and publish in all categories, as in your initial idea)
You can do this already in core, without an extra plugin, using the
recent topics widget. Make a category or subcategory with just the topics you want pinned. Then place the widget into the
category.tpl template and set the category in the settings. You can change the look of the topic list in the
If you want more customization, there are a few plugins that do this too.
I can kind of see why you want this, but fundamentally it goes against the concept of the categories. What kind of thing would you want to cross category lines?
I'm working on this but keep in mind two things:
Once you publish this "global" topic, you will not be able to edit it with just one click. You will have to individually go to all categories and edit manually... There may even be a workaround for this but it's too complex for me to develop alone and I'm not seeing a way to be able to edit the created topic in all categories at once.
And I still don't know if I can get the composer to work with the plugin, so I do not promise to get a writing through the NodeBB composer. If I can not, you will have to write the topic body manually (this implies that the user knows Markdown syntax).
Even then, would you still like to see this plugin developed?
