    This query is on behalf of an EdTech startup in India. We are exploring NodeBB for building our MVP. I would like to connect with any freelance developer who is familiar with the codebase of NodeBB so we could engage him/her to guide our developers.

    We believe that the initial learning can be accelerated if we can onboard a freelancer who is familiar with NodeBB. Any interested freelancer can contact us on WhatsApp at

    Any referrals would be appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to understand our requirements.

    If your site contains a lot of user data such as images you may want to consider using a plugin that would offload that content to a 3rd party provider such as Imgur or Amazon S3. Plugins exist for NodeBB for both of those services.

    I just did an install of NodeBB 0.8.2 and it installed nodebb-plugin-emailer-mandrill 0.3.1 with it which is only compatible with NodeBB 0.9.^. In addition to the declared version problem I was also getting a related error on NodeBB startup until I removed the mandrill plugin.

    I worked around this problem by removing mandrill and then installing it like this:

    npm install [email protected]

    I poked around to see how nodebb installs nodebb-plugin-emailer-mandrill and it appears that this plugin is installed in a special way? It is not mentioned in the package.json requirements for nodebb.

    It's difficult to make a bridge Ghost and Nodebb. And I still have not managed to install Nodebb ^^.
    I do not truly master nodejs.
