It should cache for an hour, I think (based on a quick look at nodebb package manager code). So yes - you have to wait a bit before the nbbpm refreshes. You can just install the updated version manually by using npm install <package name> from the command line in NodeBB folder.
How to image carousel based on user uploads?
I would like to have a widget that can be placed at the top of the forum homepage which is an image carousel based on images uploaded by users.
Option #1: Ideally the image source would be for e.g the first image posted in the last 10 topics of a specific forum (like for example a Gallery "show your artworks" kind of forum). The images of the carousel would then link to the source topic.
Option #2: Alternatively users could somehow upload directly to that image carousel.
How can that be achieved? Someone maybe has a code snippet to do that?
Many thanks in advance!
@greyteapot I think this could be pretty cool. Let it function as present carousel, just filter on last X images (e.g. twenty) rather than posts?
Difficult to adapt? I am not a nodejs dev head. But.. nevertheless, it could be cool, so a +1 from me.
@greyteapot You can drop that widget into different boxes, iirc. Mayhaps worth exploration
