0.4.2. admin panel cant't save & ajaxify app undefined

  • using 0.4.2 admin panel clicking save is unresponsive, seems like javascript are not initiated. and ajaxify app is undefined

    Uncaught ReferenceError: app is not defined ajaxify.js?v=v0.3.2-1550-g7f6ae6d:273

    ive already upgraded to the latest npm package which fixed the ajaxify.js bug on the homepage.

    Have you updated vanilla and lavender packages as well?

  • @julian i did here are the dep ver

    "nodebb-plugin-mentions": "~0.4.0",
    "nodebb-plugin-markdown": "~0.4.1",
    "nodebb-widget-essentials": "~0.0.21",
    "nodebb-theme-vanilla": "~0.0.19",
    "nodebb-theme-lavender": "~0.0.25",
    "nodebb-plugin-soundpack-default": "~0.1.1",
    "nodebb-plugin-dbsearch": "0.0.9"

    It sounds like the minified javascript file does not compile properly. Can you run NodeBB in development mode ./nodebb dev and let me know if you run into any errors?

  • @julian during compilation this is the only warning
    warn: [plugins/nodebb-widget-essentials] staticDir is deprecated, use staticDirs instead

    i've also set it up one directory up so /forum, when trying to login it redirects the user to /user/name instead of /forum/user/name

  • Admin

    Ah! A subfolder install!

    Those are not so well supported by NodeBB (though @planner knows I've tried)... best bet is to stick with a subdomain install (e.g. forum.yourdomain.com) if at all possible.

    If you're insistent, we can take a look -- what is "relative_path" set to in your config.json?

  • @julian

        "base_url": "http://localhost",
        "port": "4567",
        "use_port": true,
        "secret": "hidden",
        "bind_address": "",
        "database": "redis",
        "redis": {
            "host": "",
            "port": "6379",
            "password": "",
            "database": "1"
        "bcrypt_rounds": 12,
        "upload_path": "/public/uploads",
        "relative_path": "/forum"

    im planning to connect my user database to this nodebb later, and didnt want to shell out another server, can check it. http://yako.io/forum.

  • Admin

    hm... and your nginx config?

    • base_url should be http://yako.io
    • use_port should be false

  • @julian

    upstream app_nodebb {
            server localhost:4567;
            location /forum {
                    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
                    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
                    proxy_set_header X-Nginx-Proxy true;
                    proxy_pass http://app_nodebb/forum;
                    proxy_redirect off;
                    # Socket.IO Support
                    proxy_http_version 1.1;
                    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
                    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";

    @clinraus Awesome -- looks like it is set up perfectly. The issue on the admin end is probably a bug on our end.

    Feel free to follow along at #1497

  • @julian said:

    Subfolder install ACP inaccessible

    should also add in login redirect issues with subfolder
