Update: I figured out how to merge the accounts -- I just had to supply an email and the plugin did the rest.
But now I have another problem: How do I access the user's remote ID from the template? So that when someone clicks on the username/icon, they're redirected to my application's profile page as opposed to NodeBB's?
Nodebb stops working due to plugin activation
Whenever I am activating the db search plugin and restarting nodebb, it stops and subsequent nodebb start command does not work anymore until I disable the plugin from CLI. I am running nodebb v 1.12.2 and using mongo db v 4.2. nodebb-plugin-dbsearch plugin version is 4.0.6. Need help.
If you are on nodebb 1.12.2 you should use the version of db search in your package.json. 4.0.6 is for nodebb 1.13.0 which isn't released yet.
