So I want to create a theme.



  • Hello NodeBB users. Since I've chosen NodeBB to replace my current free hosted and created forum I need to create the custom theme that will go with it.
    Since it's a graphic community we have some features needed and that's why I've taken a look at plugins and the API to see if NodeBB is ready to answer our problematic. Mostly it's the case and the modular aspect is very appreciable.

    So first question, how to do a child theme ? I've the quickstart theme and it seems that only importing the less of another theme do the job. (Vanilla in that case). But for instance if I want to use Lavander that is a lot more developed is that the same way ?
    Isn't that a bit ugly cause I assume it will be CSS replacement over imported CSS with new one too.
    Is there a best way to do it ?

    Is a theme capable of interacting on templates and add features to the control panel like a plugin. For instance I absolutely need the sub category feature, because my forum today use a structure like :

    • Category
    • Forum
      • Sub forum
      • Sub forum
        • Archives (occasional)

    So there's at least 3 levels needed and I'll need to figure out if there's a way to do so since it doesn't seem implemented in the actual NodeBB version.

    Is it possible to add a new navigation, I think it's possible with a widget it doesn't seem like there's an existing one I might take a look on this.

    I think this is not theme related so I'll stop here but these are the direct questions I have.
    Also I doesn't seems that this forum have a support category, I think it could be nice to add one in order to filter actual themes from requests/question ect... (same for plugins).
