Hi, first post here! I am evaluating a number of forum solutions; the usual suspects, Discourse, Vanilla, and now NodeBB. I also had a look at some of the more traditional forums like Flux, and some newer ones like Esotalk.
I first tried NodeBB 6 months, this community has really grown since I last visited. NodeBB itself seems snappier.
I just set up an Nginx reverse proxy following the official NodeBB docs and am trying to test the activation email with the mandril plugin and it seems to add the port 4567 in the activation email url which fails. I have use_port: false in the config.json, and the base url set to forum.example.com.
For instance if base url is set to forum.example.com then the activation email by mandrill has the url as forum.example.com/4567/xyxxxx which in a reverse proxy nginx will fail to resolve. Any solutions? The forum search seems to be down at the moment, or unavailable for new users, and Google site search isn't helping either. I am sure I am missing something blindingly obvious.
