Homepage as "all topics" view



  • I'm looking to set up a NodeBB forum, which used to be on Vanilla. I really like how on Vanilla, all the topics/threads are listed on the homepage, and how you can create a topic from the homepage via the "New Discussion" button, like this:

    It still has categories in this setup, but the homepage shows all the topics. Here's a screenshot of the New Discussion page, where you have a menu where you can choose which category the topic goes in:

    I really like Vanilla's setup, and I think it would be even better as an option or plugin in NodeBB.



  • @luke @zenkamal has done something like this already with his nutrition forum. (Although it seems a little quiet over there... :()

    I believe he used the custom pages plugin, and showed all posts from one category, then created a button that opened a composer and would post into that category in the sidebar. Then used tags to differentiate the data instead of categories.



  • @a_5mith Oh cool, I'll check that out.



  • @a_5mith @luke

    Am formally launching when 0.5 comes out. Pretttyyyyy excited......

    By the way, very smooth transfer for your forum @a_5mith !



  • @zenkamal ha, thanks, only one or two small issues I had to worry about, nothing too major. 😄
    I got to the point where I could either wait a bit longer, or just get the transfer done, so I voted just do it and deal with any issues after.
