I have only just started using nodeBB so I dont know if this is already in a hidden setting, but a feature I really like using in other forums is the ability to read upto a certain post in a thread, and then just be notified on new responses to that thread (having it take me to where I left off)
At the moment the unread threads shows all new threads and not new posts to previously read threads
Composer Formatting Options Not Working On New Post/Topic
Just started using NodeBB, it is the best solution for our purposes.
I am having problems with the default composer plugin formatting options working. When editing the topic, the formatting option buttons work fine. However, when I try the formatting options on a new post/topic it does nothing. The text can not be formatted.
Any ideas? How can I fix this? I have tried rebuilding and restarting from the command line and also deactivating, uninstalling, reinstalling and reactivating from the ACP,
All the Best.
@daftcyborg can you reproduce the issues here? Please share your versions:
I am using
NodeBB v 1.13.2
npm v. 6.14.4
The bug is the composer formatting options like bold or italic doesn't work when posting a new topic for the first time. However, when editing the post after it's been posted, the formatting options work.
Do I need to upgrade NodeBB to the latest to fix this bug? Is there a simpler fix? I have tried restarting, rebuilding and reloading the site.
@daftcyborg I'd certainly recommend you update to the latest version of NodeBB and to Node.js 14.
@daftcyborg As a data point, I am still on nodebb 12.2 and nodejs 12.x and do not have this issue.
Which is not to say you should not follow the advice above and update/grade.
Upgrading solved it. Thank you very much.
