After some more code digging and experiments I can answer my own question. A theme is a normal plugin and as such does not inherit any behavior from other plugins.
So you need to copy everything you need from the base theme library.js to your child theme. And of course, you need to declare client scripts explicitly.
Loading of missing templates from base theme is the only link between the base and the child theme.
Can't get Emailer (Local) working with Exchange SMTP server
Hi all, I am testing nodeBB out for use in my IT support dept. It's looking very good so far.
The one stumbling block I've had is getting email notifications to work. I installed the Emailer (local) plugin and configured it to use my local SMTP server (i.e. SMTP01.DOMAIN.ORG) and I do not see any emails when registering as "test" users. Are there any configuration file settings I need to change in nodeBB besides the Host, Port, User, Password from the Emailer (Local) plugin settings from the Admin area? In nodeBB, where can I see the logs of what's happening in regards to the emails?
I have other web apps running locally that use the same SMTP server so I know the email server is working :).
Thanks for any help!
