People are lazy, anything you can make that will simplify their lives is winner. This one feature certainly helped Social networks grow over traditionnal forums. Look kids, you can post stuff but you don't have to type anything, how cool is that?
It would be quite helpful if the plugins that were available for download from the admin panel were required to indicate the NodeBB version they were compatible with, a date of when it was last updated, or things of that nature so that quickly at a glance you can see if something is older or not compatible anymore as simply having the plugins current version is not that helpful with nothing to compare that against.
@baris Yes I use Redis for NodeBB, so it gets applied to the integrated socket.io. But also it seems like I misinterpreted the problem for some reasons...
Several features are not working with clustering, for example the chat:
I can open it, but...
As you see in this screenshot, sometimes I get the messages and sometimes I don't.
Or the plugins, I can initiate installation and nothing happens but the image changes. Installation through the ACP just don't work with clustering. I haven't tested it yet together with websockets, as I'm a cloudflare customer and haven't got access to the websockets right now.
Im doing my best to get the word out. Eventually ill have a bit more time to take a crack at theming. A bit more api to accommodate featured and favorited threads and you could really turn this into a massive-community-propagated-blog. That would put you over just about any web software out there.
