[nodebb-plugin-classic-home] Classical Homepage



  • I used npm install nodebb-plugin-classic-home and it installed but doesn't show in my plugin list. What's wrong? I have the latest NodeBB



  • nevermind. I got it to work. thanks


  • Admin

    @Alex-Mao @Guiri @Scuzz sorry for missing these replies. It works for me on latest NodeBB on Lavender and Vanilla, so likely you may have been using an older version of NodeBB?



  • @psychobunny No problem, we know you are a busy guy! I'm on Latest stable, so 0.4.3?


  • Admin

    Hmm. I would imagine this should work with 0.4.3

    When you activate and restart the forum, what do you get here? domain.com/templates/home.tpl

    Might also be a plugin conflicting with this, you don't have any plugins overwriting the home template right? Can you let me know what other plugins you have activated?

    It downloads but in the file there is this

    <div class="motd">
    <div widget-area="motd" class="hidden"></div>
    </div>
    
    <div class="row home" itemscope itemtype="http://www.schema.org/ItemList">
    <!-- BEGIN categories -->
    <div class="{categories.class}" data-cid="{categories.cid}" data-numRecentReplies="{categories.numRecentReplies}">
    	<meta itemprop="name" content="{categories.name}">
    	<h4>
    		<!-- IF !categories.link -->
    		<span class="badge {categories.unread-class}">{categories.topic_count} </span>
    		<!-- ENDIF !categories.link -->
    
    		<!-- IF categories.link -->
    		<a href="{categories.link}" itemprop="url" target="_blank">
    		<!-- ELSE -->
    		<a href="{relative_path}/category/{categories.slug}" itemprop="url">
    		<!-- ENDIF categories.link -->
    		{categories.name}
    		</a>
    	</h4>
    
    	<!-- IF categories.link -->
    	<a href="{categories.link}" itemprop="url" target="_blank">
    	<!-- ELSE -->
    	<a href="{relative_path}/category/{categories.slug}" itemprop="url">
    	<!-- ENDIF categories.link -->
    		<div

    			title="{categories.description}"
    			style="

    				<!-- IF categories.bgColor -->background-color: {categories.bgColor};<!-- ENDIF categories.bgColor -->
    				color: {categories.color};
    			"
    		>
    			<div id="category-{categories.cid}" class="category-slider-{categories.post_count}">
    				<!-- IF categories.icon -->
    				<div class="category-box"><i class="fa {categories.icon} fa-4x"></i></div>
    				<!-- ENDIF categories.icon -->
    				<div class="category-box" itemprop="description">{categories.description}</div>
    				<!-- BEGIN posts -->
    				<div class="category-box">
    					<div class="post-preview">
    						<img src="{categories.posts.user.picture}" class="pull-left" />
    						<p class=""><strong>{categories.posts.user.username}</strong>: {categories.posts.content}</p>
    					</div>
    				</div>
    				<!-- END posts -->
    				<!-- IF categories.icon -->
    				<div class="category-box"><i class="fa {categories.icon} fa-4x"></i></div>
    				<!-- ENDIF categories.icon -->
    			</div>
    		</div>
    	</a>
    </div>
    <!-- END categories -->
    </div>
    

    I'm pretty sure i dont have anything else overwriting the home page.

    I'm at a loss then. My only guess would be to try to update to bleeding edge (or maybe you should wait till v0.5 if you want to run stable only) but I was pretty sure that this should have worked on v0.4.3



  • I'll wait until next stable update. I only wanted to test it out to see what i looks like.



  • @psychobunny i really love the simplicity of this theme/plugin (especially when we have many categories and sub-categories the default theme is not good). the 0.5.1 now support sub-categories, does this classic theme/plugin support sub-categories as well? thanks.


  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Most likely the theme will need some integration before subcategories will be shown. At present, I believe only vanilla and lavender show subcategories.
