The plugin needs a bit of work as @julian keeps QQing about 😄
It's not part of core, and in the near future I'd like to resolve them!
i want to ask you guys that my NodeBB installation correctly done or not.I follow the nodebb.pdf
link text and installed NodeBB on Windows Vista.after running using gitshell i got NodeBB page at address http://127.0.0.1:4567/ But that's all nothing more.On this page there are many options e.g: Nodebb plugins, NodeBB development ...etc.If i click any of these options then nothing happens just it says "There are no topics in this category." and also using this page i can Not even log in NodeBB !!! Therefore I am little Confused whether i did it correct or wrong.(BTW, I installed all the required software)
i am attaching pictures of gitshell output:
Help me on this issue.
@himadree I'm not seeing an issue, when you ran the setup, you created an admin username and password, in the top right, you can see Register & Login, click Login, enter the admin username and password you created during setup.
You will then be able to post. The categories you are seeing are default categories which can be removed and changed in the Admin Control Panel.
Thanks. But also how can i recover my admin username and password?
assuming you've used Redis that is.
@a_5mith So does it meant Can i write new plugin on my local pc using this set up and add my plugin in NodeBB??
@himadree I don't see why not
@himadree Your plugin doesn't connect to nodebb per se. You'd make your plugin, upload it into something like github, then clone it into your node_modules folder.
When it works, if you want to publish it, you would use npm adduser, create an account through that, then npm publish <plugin name>
@a_5mith it really helps a lot. Do u know any resource or links where this thing u said is explain (i mean how to upload created plugins like u said)?
@a_5mith this link is good for NPM . Do you know any links on step by step way to create plugin on NodeBB?
@himadree Depends what plugin you want to create, but this is the official documentation - https://docs.nodebb.org/en/latest/plugins/create.html
Please let us know if our plugin documentation can be improved
