Uggghhh, I can't get any emoji plugin to work on my NodeBB install. They don't even parse to a broken image, they just stay as the text that was originally entered in editor, draft, and published post. The autocomplete box shows up fine, the big text area displays them all fine. The text just stays text. I had some trouble with a SSO and ended up not being able to login at all, so at one point, I did a full reset of everything. So maybe I forgot to turn back on some other plugin that is default to on in a fresh install?
I've tried every emoji plugin, none of them work, all on, all but one off, removing them all, putting just the extended, deleting nodebb.min.js. Turning off, uninstalling, re-installing, re-turning on. I don't get any errors (but could very well be looking in completely wrong place, I'm noob, so I'm looking through Firebug, running ./nodebb log, looking at npm-debug).
Have updated, run in developer and forever mode, changed theme, restart x 100, running around like headless chicken, no results yet.
Where else to look for a potential trouble maker?
