Just in case anyone else runs into a similar problem, I was looking at the wrong api urls to get what I needed.
I needed to be getting JSON from the topic data, rather than category or post. Most everything is working now.
I just purchased the cloud service and add several (basic imo) plugins, after that a restart was required, I did that, but my forums are unavailable now, so it's the admin page, I always end up on this link https://nodebb.org/502
I tried restarting and turning off the forums but that didn't help.
thank you all.
Hi @taste, let me take a look at it for you
Edit: Sometimes, plugins installed don't play nicely with some NodeBB versions. We're planning to look into resolving these issues soon...! Do you remember which plugins you installed?
Edit 2: Looks like
nodebb-plugin-buzzer isn't playing nice. I've disabled it for now (along with some other ones)
