Extension to disable the display of topics in a category from an extension to recent posts

General Discussion
  • Hello,

    I hope the title is correct and understandable, but anyway my question is this:
    If there is a possibility that a certain category when they write in it, the post will not be found in 'Recent Posts' or 'Unread', but still those who have a direct link to the topic / post, can enter and see.

    Thank you so much to all the helpers in this precious forum!

    You're the best. Thank you.

    fyi I had this idea but didn't try because it says "Custom Category", I thought you can only choose one. Works perfectly now.

    @julian Using the registration queue would add a lot more work for admins/mods though - but certainly it would help with this also.

    Looks like the above has helped, but we are still getting some registrations - the spam accounts are now just putting the URL in the "Full name" field.

    Hi, first of all, I want to say this is such an amazing project. I really enjoy using it! Thank you!

    So my question is pretty much in the title, I want normal registered user to be able to lookup existing categories and if it doesn't exist yet, allow him to create it.

    I want the lookup experience just like the current tags lookup page here: https://community.nodebb.org/tags Filter possible results as user continue entering letters.

    I think the creation of an category is can be easily accomplished with the write API, but is there already tools built for this lookup process? As a starting point I looked at the /api/categories/ and it's giving me too much info, I just want category name ...

    A few weeks ago we weren't checking the slug for correctness. So https://community.nodebb.org/topic/2647/anythinghere was working. But if you had images in the topic in the form of ![](/no/url) this was causing an api call to the topic and loading the entire topic to solve that we started checking the slug.

    If we can find a solution to that image problem we can go back to ignoring the slug.

    Ah right, that makes sense.
