    Hey all: so this is a slightly smarmy, self-serving request but hey, I am the marketing guy.

    We are working with the Capterra directory to get some NodeBB reviews posted on their site. They have a program where they will give you a $20 gift card (I think you get a choice of Amazon, Starbucks or pre-paid Visa) if you are one of the first 25 people to click an emailed link and post a review. It doesn't matter if you say nice things or if you bash us, although of course we hope you'll be nice!

    If you're interested and are running NodeBB yourself or using our hosting service, please DM me or email [email protected] with your name and email address.

    There is a time limit, I need your response before Monday August 20 at 3 pm Eastern (Toronto/New York) time. A few days after that you'll get a separate email with the details for posting the review.

    I'm a completely new developer in NodeBB and I have started developing a custom theme with Vanilla as base theme but I have two main doubts that are probably linked.

    First of all, I would like to modify the default value of "Custom Class" attribute in theme configuration related with category view.

    Admin > Manage > Category Settings:

    But I think it's not theme related but global variable related.
    Anyone can help me to find out where those values are coming from and how can I change the default behaviour?

    The second one is also related. I would like to add a new custom field in the config screen:

    Similar to the "Category Image" one, but with other name, in order to use it as category background image for instance...

    I really appreciate your help!

    @Chris that's for the downvote 😉

    @Kowlin Yeah, I believe @baris updated the imgur plugin so any uploaded images will save the https url in the post.
