I use a dark (black and yellow) persona theme. I removed the profile pictures and make most of the images square with round edges.
Not really sure what all the hype about mongodb/redis lately is, if you can use well tested sql databases.
MongoDB is well tested too. But beyond being super stable, it is screaming fast - far faster than any relational database, it has amazing sharding properties, it speaks native JSON, it is getting a massive amount of active development, it is considered the native database for Node.js on which NodeBB is built and it scales like crazy.
Now the big one.... when using Node... those "well tested sql databases" are not well tested. MongoDB is far more stable and tested than any of them and, in fact, lack of highly reliable drivers is a major issue for relational (what you call SQL) databases.
So there are very, very good reasons to use NoSQL, especially MongoDB specifically. Speed, stability, battle tested, native, etc. I'm not actually clear on any upside to using a relational database here. Relationships are nice, but would they add any value at all in an online community infrastructure?
Also, I should note, some online communities that we have dealt with have scaling issues specifically because they eschewed this advice and went with those "well tested" relational databases. Once they grew and got busy they were unable to keep pace and they bogged down and had to throw crazy amounts of money at keeping respectable performance when MongoDB or other similar datastore could have been faster for cheaper.
@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 !
@pichalite said in Nodebblist - The list for NodeBB:
@teh_g that's what NodeBB does right now... when you go to ACP -> Extend -> Plugins -> Download/Find Plugins
Yeah, I was saying for this site i might be cool to have as well. The NodeBB list page is much better organized for discovery.
