Integrating nodebb into my own app (centralised)

General Discussion
  • Hey, so first of all great work to the guys behind this great piece of software!

    I wanted to introduce a community to my nodejs app and wanted to know if you guys have guides or some kind of walk through for integrating your models into mine.

    I can merge the user models and separate everything else to have one big app dB that has my own app as well as nodebb (while having nodebb run on a separate server and not mess with any of its inner workings)

    Any help and resources are appreciated!

    @dunlix you could lose installed plugins, but that's unlikely. You certainly wouldn't lose activated plugins.

    Did you lose uploads? What plugins did you lose?

    The only things that it can conceive of that are not in the database are uploads, which you can back up before an upgrade according to the documents you referenced.

    Looks like the description is now parsed to prevent issues with spacing when subcategories are used.

    Nothing like that unfortunately. But we do have an email responder plugin - you get an email on a new reply, and then you can reply directly to the email and it gets posted.

    It's a balancing act -- I honestly really want to help, but the more popular NodeBB gets, the more people need help, and that really comes at a time cost.

    So we really need people like yourself -- experienced NodeBB admins who can guide others to solutions. 🙂

    To lessen help/support work you really need great documentation and faq system which is searchable and brings back relevant results when searched. Then get into a habit of answering forum/support questions with answer + a link to the relevant documentation and faq resources each and every time you answer. This serves a purpose to condition users and lurking visitors into getting familiar with documentation and faq availability. Over time, end users will also help out other end users by answering the same questions with direct links to documentation and faq resources and you get end with a snowball effect 🙂

    I am a firm believer in answering common questions only once so documentation/faq links will capture that answer for all to use and reference.

    The hardest part is compiling that documentation and faq system entries as you go - on the fly adding to the system as new unique but commonly repeated questions pop up 😉

    Maybe make a nodeBB FAQ plugin to promote forum post/answer/replies to the FAQ plugin/display which can be edited for more appropriate format etc before final submission to an FAQ entry ?

    Thanks @lin . Luckily I was able to uninstall it through ACP after a couple of restarts through command line and then through ACP. So nice of you to help 🙂
