    @jiangcaiyang It works if you do it right. It doesn't take LESS variables, but it does work. Odds are the less styles have higher specificity, so your custom CSS rules are not applied. Use !important or something instead. It will certainly benefit you to not be held back due to incompatibility with newer versions of NodeBB in the future.

    I am attempting to update my NodeBB install (hosted on heroku) to the newest version. Initially after I upgraded I could not see the login form at all (the login page was blank except for the nav bar). After doing "$./nodebb reset settings" I can now see the login form but attempting to login results in the server crashing.

    2014-11-03T07:04:57.909Z - error: ReferenceError: Password is not defined 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910265+00:00 app[web.1]: at ReplyParser.execute (/app/node_modules/redis/lib/parser/javascript.js:211:22) 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910224+00:00 app[web.1]: at /app/src/routes/authentication.js:258:6 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910227+00:00 app[web.1]: at /app/src/database/redis/hash.js:71:4 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910255+00:00 app[web.1]: at /app/node_modules/redis/index.js:1138:13 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910225+00:00 app[web.1]: at /app/src/database/redis/hash.js:42:4 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910260+00:00 app[web.1]: at ReplyParser.<anonymous> (/app/node_modules/redis/index.js:309:14) 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910261+00:00 app[web.1]: at ReplyParser.emit (events.js:95:17) 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910263+00:00 app[web.1]: at ReplyParser.send_reply (/app/node_modules/redis/lib/parser/javascript.js:300:10) 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910257+00:00 app[web.1]: at try_callback (/app/node_modules/redis/index.js:573:9) 2014-11-03T07:04:57.910258+00:00 app[web.1]: at RedisClient.return_reply (/app/node_modules/redis/index.js:661:13)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please excuse me if I posted this in the incorrect section.

    I had an advancement, but since the price itself was very low the advancement wasn't that much either 😉 the current work done on it would be worth more than the final amount.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not that mad about the money, since I considered this more of a "charity" project with a little payment. If I'd be building this for a large, serious party I could probably ask a whole lot more. Because I considered it to be a "charity" project I didn't bother writing up and signing any paper work.

    The point of this "review" was more to let other developers be cautious when agreeing to do some paid work for him.

    To conclude, yes it's something the community can benefit from. It's a rework/extension on the WebRTC plugin. It'd be possible to create (private or public) rooms (from anywhere in NodeBB) which people could join. It'd support most of the experimental WebRTC stuff like Chrome screensharing etc. It'd also be easily extendible with new WebRTC functions.

    Like I said, I'm not worried about the money, it's not like I really need it. I'll just put this project on hold and work on other stuff (poll plugin ;)).
