Yeah we should add a bit of documentation to the top of that ACP page. Anybody willing to PR? 😛
I'd add it to docs.nodebb under an ACP header, then just document every option of the ACP and what it does. Saves clutter that way. Don't mind throwing something together with some screenshots etc. assuming the docs accept screenshots. 👍
Yes, you can definitely use your own domain and SSL. We don't have tools to automate this at the moment, so you'll have to open up a support ticket and send us your certificate. Then we can configure your instance appropriately.
You guys rock. Let me see if the the group I am setting this up for can donate some money. Going from $5 a month to $35 a month is a bit more than I wanted to spend, but it will be wicked helpful to not have to administer it. I am glad I am planning to move from myBB to NodeBB, seems like I made the right choice!
