I absolute want to migrate one of my forum to NodeBB but I'm looking for a theme which looks like a forum and not what it looks now like "latests posts" on the index page even if it doesn't look bad but not my cup of tea.
Is there any theme which corresponds to my needs or a custom theme is the best solution in this case?
I don't know if it exists but a vertical postbit looks awesome and what about another header because the one by default looks tiny?
LXC refers to the technology that enables programs to work in containers like Docker. I haven't tried it, but there are dockerized versions of NodeBB that are supposed to be easy to deploy. Because it's still kind of a new technology for deployment YMMV.
Traditionally NodeBB is deployed as a process running on a VPS (which is commonly a VM dedicated to you (aka KVM)) since it already has all the daemonization logic built in. So, this is the best tested and most common method of deployment. You can get a VPS from providers like Digital Ocean, AWS, Azure, etc.
Even if you don't have access to educator resources, there are typically ways to get free server time
I'm starting using NodeBB. It works great till so far.
The most important functionality of my site is email notification. The only way I know to do this is asking everyone to watch a thread. But this is not straight forward.
What I want is some utilities that can send emails to all the users in a group. Is it possible with current version?
P.S. I think notification to all users when new post in a certain category suffices.
