For 1 I would be inclined to use clustering then reverse proxy the subdomains to categories. Rather than spooling individual instances for each. I've done this at my own site.
dnb.35hz.co.uk will take you to the electronic category.
You could then make a few changes to how your homepage/main website looks and do it that way.
As an additional. Anything you're not sure exists, drop an email to sales [at]nodebb.org and they may be able to create what you need.
Me and a few other people have made an online game with an online authentication system and want to know if there is any way to use user accounts and their profile pages that have already been created to play the game as profiles to post on a nodebb forum.
To clarify, this is a question about seamlessly replacing the default nodebb registration and user profile system or hooking a replacement - though it would be preferable if features such as groups continued to work after having done so, we are not fussed about the forum fully working so long as users can start topics and use all the normal forum features. It would also be a big plus if it could do things like share sessions, so that you do not have to log in twice. As an example, Bethesda's community pages, which use nodebb, can do this.
I'd be greatful for any pointers or advice the community can give. I know this is quite an advanced question. Thank you!
I've been playing around with a new template and when view posts on a topic, I've managed to get it to colour the user's name with the same colour as the selected group as per their profile.
Do you know how I can do this with the lastpost.tpl on category view? I've tried to do it the same way as I do with the post view, however when I look for the selectedGroup/selectedGroups array, I can't find it.
Thanks in advance.
