    The only current milestone on GitHub is 1.13.0, so I'd assume that it will wait for that release.

    If you need it now you can manually modify some NodeBB files:

    in src/middleware/user.js modify line 135 from user.isModeratorOfAnyCategory(req.uid, next);


    user.isAdminOrGlobalMod(req.uid, next); In src/ change line 75 from if (!results.isAdmin && !results.isGlobalMod && !results.isModerator) {


    if (!results.isAdmin && !results.isGlobalMod) { in src/controllers/accounts/helpers.js change line 144 from if (isAdmin || isSelf || ((isGlobalModerator || isModerator) && !results.isTargetAdmin)) {


    if (isAdmin || isSelf || (isGlobalModerator && !results.isTargetAdmin)) {

    That should remove all privileges from category moderators while leaving them for administrators and global moderators.

    I'm really looking forward to 1.13.0 though, as I've not only added two things that will be useful for me (not to mention useful changes by NodeBB staff and other contributors. And the refactor), but also because I use the master branch for my dev enviroment the plugin I'm currently writing uses async/await where 1.12.x doesn't support it yet, so to avoid rewriting it twice I had to use util.promisify to make current callback based functions work like async ones 😄

    EDIT: btw. It seems like 1.13.0 might be close as there are no issues left assigned to this milestone. So while I'm not NodeBB staff and can't tell you when the refactor will be finished and when they think there are enough changes for an update to 1.13 I doubt it's really far away 🙂

    Spiders as a System Group · Issue #2304 · NodeBB/NodeBB

    Something that I miss from other forum software, is how search engine spiders were classified in an alternative manner from guests. This allowed you to set it so that spiders could view topics but guests could not. Building in spiders as...

    @pichalite said in Since which version nodebb added a search button in the top right corner ?:

    @ningji that's been there for a long time now. You just need to have one of the search plugins installed and activated. nodebb-plugin-dbsearch gets installed by default. Activate the plugin and restart NodeBB to see the search icon.

    @yariplus FYI... plugins themselves don't add that search menu. NodeBB checks for any active plugins listening for the hook filter:search.query to decide whether to show or hide the search icon.

    Thanks very much, will give it a try later !
