    WP integration is definitely on our TODO list, one of the first few things we plan on looking at after our initial major launch at the end of this year.

    I hope that by the time we do launch, you'll think that NodeBB is the best solution for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    The simplest way to do this would be to have a NodeBB plugin periodically ping the wordpress RSS feed for new entries, and post new topics.

    If you wanted a faster response rate (e.g. topic created right after the blog post is written), you'd need a wordpress plugin to ping NodeBB after the post is written.


  • I am surprised I didn't find you guys earlier... Thanks to TheAdminZone and my comment I was about to pull the trigger on Discourse. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hey look, it's discourse!

    Don't worry @quahfamili, we're very aware of their existence, and have been since day 1. In fact, the very reason we started NodeBB was because we felt that installing Discourse was too cumbersome of a process.

    They have some nice design ideas, as do we, so whenever we see something that we like from Discourse, we try to see if we can incorporate our own version of it.

    Found you thanks to openshift and got to this post after a topic on discourse. I've been with discourse for over 1 year, trying to port my forums to that apparently awesome openshift free tier.

    Right off the bat, I really miss shortcut keys on writing messages. Anyway, got a question...

    Maybe you were joking about the reason you started NodeBB there, but made me wonder: why not just joining forces with Discourse and forking it or something?

    <small>( Another huge annoyance there. Akismet said I was a spammer, just because I was linking references to my short introduction there. (1) Removed link to my forums then (2) removed first reference and finally (3) removed all links but left references for later editing them back, eventually. Let's see if it goes through! (4) editing the links back in were easy, but keeping edit history isn't. ๐Ÿ˜› )</small>

    Discourse's technology stack and ours share almost nothing in common, so sadly, our skills (and vice versa) are not really transferable ๐Ÿ˜„

    The one tech we do share (redis), we use it completely differently than they do ๐Ÿ˜† What are the odds!


  • @julian I think it's generally more advisable to be stack agnostic, but I think I see what you mean.

    NodeBB does look very compelling, in any case. Quite a fantastic job there. ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ™‚

    ( 600 seconds to post again... Trying to join this is feeling to me even harder than on stackoverflow )

  • GNU/Linux Admin

    Sorry about that, let me lower it to 60 seconds...


  • @Caue-Rego I think it is only 600 seconds during your first few hours as a user. This is to prevent bots from joining and spamming.


  • @Caue-Rego @julian And now we all know what horror most of us went trough ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • The horror, oh the horror!!
