Few Plugins Working After Update

    Possible feature request, separate 1st party and 3rd party plugins. So users can choose to only install plugins made by NodeBB to ensure stability.

    That would be very handy. I was under the impression that most of the plugins having issues were "official" ones, but I guess that they are not.

    It's plugins by Julian that are mostly not working.

    And PsychoBunny

    I had used them with the incorrect assumption that as they were by the core team and were such basic features that you would expect to have listed as platform features (basic media) that they were the official plugins.

    Is the sentiment that because things like search is in a plugin that it is not an official feature of the platform, for example?

    No, it's a plugin because it allows you to use other plugins like Solr for your searching, instead of the original dbsearch. Or if someone wanted to use something else as their search, completely free to do so.


  • I'm pretty sure that the core plugins are the ones that are installed on a fresh NodeBB install. Anything else would be "third party". Even if they are coded by the NodeBB team I would not consider them core.

    All the ones that are included with NodeBB will work with NodeBB. I have never had any issues with them not working.

    I have had issue with other plugins not working but waiting a few weeks or months won't hurt. BitBangers is still running on 0.5.x because the shoutbox plugin has only just been made compatible with 0.6.x. Even our theme isnt compatible with 0.6.x yet.

    I would suggest installing a local copy of NodeBB where you can test out all the plugins you have installed before upgrading your live website.

    You also have to take into account that NodeBB is still "beta". Things will break, there will be compatibility issues. It's not even at a full version 1 yet.

    New version of the Solr plugin just released.... but it still doesn't work 😞 I was hopeful for a moment.

  • Community Rep

    Hmmm.... going back to DBSearch doesn't change the results. Same bad search output.

    Do you mean this?

    {tags.value}{tags.score}

    If so, npm install templates.js@latest if that doesn't work, try templates.js@0.1.10

    Tested that and the extra "crud" on a search went away but DBSearch still returns naught.

    Updated Solr again (the second release today has come out) and switch over to it. The extra crud is gone there too and it says that it found a lot of results but the output remains blank there too. Progress, at least.

    Console on your site gives the following error:

    TypeError: e is undefined

    It seems that you've not fully completed the update process, as running npm up should have updated templates.js, if you run npm install within your NodeBB folder, it should go through the package.json and ensure everything is as it should be. You'll also notice that your groups icon in the header says groups.header, which means it can't find the global language file for groups.header. Then try reloading the forum. Should be good to go then.

  • NodeBB

    Your search seems to be working http://mangolassi.it/api/search/nodebb

    Maybe the theme is out of date? You can check its version with npm ls nodebb-theme-vanilla

    And install a version that is compatible with 0.6.0 or 0.6.x if you are on latest master.

    Give us a list of what plugins are not working for you as well as your git hash? You might have accidentally upgraded to a plugin version that is post 0.6 (ex. been ready to work with 0.7x dev)

    As others in this thread has mentioned, we are working on a system that will prevent you from installing the wrong version of a plugin on your NodeBB, the problem is obviously at your current version there's no guaranteeing that just yet. We are hoping we can get that all finalized by 0.7x

    My laptop screen makes a just audible high pitched whine when I load up the API pages. Just me? 😆

  • Global Moderator Plugin & Theme Dev

    This forum software in in active development (thus the 0.x.x versioning). You can't expect there to not be breaking changes with minor releases, especially in the current high-rate development.

    Did all that, it didn't help.

    It was fully updated and still showing errors.

    Removed a few plugins and did the update to 0.6.1 and now nearly everything is working. Solr was returning zero results (not the error like before, actually reporting zero returned results) so we went back to DBSearch and it worked immediately. So using that for the moment.

    YouTube plugin works again. Have not had email sends tested yet, they had been working on 0.6.0 but had not been working in 0.5.x for some reason, but had in 0.4.x. I assume that that is still working.

    The Groups header is working again.

    The plugin for the single image link to show is no longer in the list of available plugins, which is too bad, but that explains why it wasn't working. Would be awesome to get that back, though, as we have hundreds of posts that used it.

    All in all we are working pretty well now, though.
