Ah, I just missed the module and started searching.
Thanks for the hint how to install it 👍
I have created a group to run Beta program for selected users to discuss product features. I dont see any option to create a post in the group.
Can anyone suggest how do we create a post in group?
You'll want to create a category for that group, that only the group has access to.
Thank you @pitaj can you share the steps please? or screenshot where I could find this.
@dunlix please share some screenshot or help article to do it
@esha Create a category in ACP > Manage > Categories. change it to how you would like it. Then, go to the category's priveledges.
Now, here is what the priveledges screen should look like. Modify it to how you would like it.
Here, global moderators can also access this category. Be sure to add the group that you want for this category and change the permissions as necessary. Spiders are the search engine, and whether or not they can see it too.
Also, in your group's settings, change it this way:
@dunlix Thank you so much for your detailed reply
I dont see Privileges option in Category. here is screenshot for your reference -
We are currently on NodeBB v1.11.2 version. Do we need to upgrade the version?
@esha Yes, that is a very old version you are running. upgrade using the link on the top of the ACP.
@dunlix yes we are yet to plan the upgrade. Can you share with me a list of new features we can see in the latest release? I will need to do a code review with my team to run impact analysis on upgrading to the latest version.
I have reviewed the release notes, but they are too technical for me to understand
@esha you should really upgrade more often as you're missing out on several security fixes.
You can check the blog for more high level overviews for each release:
@pitaj thanks a ton. This is exactly what I have been looking for past months
@dunlix yes we are yet to plan the upgrade. Issue is, we have made a lot of customizations in core NodeBB to match our requirements. We are working on impact analysis to see what code breaks and fixes we can encounter with the latest upgrade.
@esha you could backup your database, your NodeBB uploads folder (as seen in docs) and the entire NodeBB root folder. Then upgrade as usual, and if anything breaks, then simply restore everything from the backup.
What did you change in core?
@dunlix i really appreciate your support. Below are few files in which we have made changes
and many more like these core files.
The easiest way is to use git to apply the same changes to the new files.
You can create a patch and then apply that patch to an upgraded clone of the repository. Git will tell you when conflicts occur and you can fix those manually.
Do note this is exactly why we recommend using a plugin for customization: it's much easier to keep plugins up to date than modify your customizations to core every time we modify the file.
