I followed the tutorial online on how to create NodeBB plugins. After following all the steps, the plugin is not visible under installed plugins in ACP. I tried to restart but there's no changes. BurnAfterCompiling LINK
Can you see any errors in the log when starting up?
To answer your earlier inquiry... in general it should be safe to use both. When paths are passed in plugin configs, we run them through path.join to remove relative relations and double slashes, etc. In all cases (exceptions are bugs), the path should be relative from the plugin directory itself.
