@julian Right, I understand. It just makes it difficult to migrate from a more traditional forum like phpBB (which is the most, or perhaps second-most, used forum software today). I think making it easier to migrate from phpBB's format could only help nodeBB gain more ground 🙂 Here is the github issue I opened a couple weeks ago. It was closed, though I hope we can reopen it. I'm more than willing to contribute. Let me know if there's anything I can do.lots0logs created this issue in NodeBB/NodeBB closed Posts from child categories are not shown on the home page. #2549
v0.6.1 hook filter:category.get not firing
the hook filter:category.get is not firing anymore in nodeBB version 0.6.1.
Also the hook filter:category.topics.get doesn't seem to get the right object as argument. Instead of the properties listed here there are only the properties topics and uid.
filter:category.get is removed.
I updated the docs. Therer are two hooks there. https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/wiki/Plugin-Hooks#filtercategorytopicsprepare and https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/wiki/Plugin-Hooks#filtercategorytopicsget
@baris thanks for the fast reply!
I used filter:category.get to modify the category property. How is this possible now?
It is passed the category data and the uid of the calling user.
@baris great, thanks!
[EDIT] Will this hook persist?
