    You can do a search using multiple tags, as long as there is a query.[]=all&hasTags[]=nodebb&hasTags[]=plugin&sortBy=relevance&sortDirection=&showAs=topics

    I don't think that will work for your case though, but it might get you halfway.

    @Giggiux said in General idea about scaling out:

    @scottalanmiller I would like to scale out for two reasons:

    two single vCore VPS are much cheaper than a single two core VPS. I'd like to have auto-scaling at a certain point 😄

    But I'm not even close to your numbers. At the moment I cannot handle more than 30 perfectly simultaneous connections without giving a lot of 503:

    (users are 50 at maximum, hits/s 25)

    If it's not a big problem can you tell me what your configuration is?

    Using a shared hard drive is cheaper than S3 ^^'. Unluckily I cannot afford performant/nice stuff all the year since there are months that my site have 50k views/day, others that have 2k. Adsense doesn't make me earn enough ^^'

    And do you use the free CloudFlare plan?

    We use Linode and have an 8GB RAM plan. No way to scale out and be as fast or cost effective.

    This forum support infinite scroll, it wonderful, but sometimes it's annoying. Open long duscussion (with 300-400 answers) is painful, I open read only last few answers and if scroll to top (look at topic theme or breadcrumbs) , I cant do it, because forum load previous pages. It's very annoying for me.

    It's possible add button "load more"? I see it this way: when user open topic first time, he see only one page (20 posts for example) and if topic has more posts, buttons "load more" (at top if exist earlier posts and bottom if exists later posts). If user press once "load more" - means we activate infinite scroll as it works now.

    Pagination with infinite scroll (better solution than "load more")

    Best infinite scroll i meet:

    Above discussion placed pagination and when you scroll, work infinite scroll. But scroll work only in direct side, not when you scroll back. For example if user open first page he can read whole discussion with infinite scroll. If he scroll back, its return to first page (where he start reading)

    If he open 5th page he can also read to the end. But if he scroll back, in this case he return to 5th page (where he start reading).

    So if user open last page (most common case for forum, read last unread post), infinite scroll doesn't work at all. If unread posts several(2 pages, for example), user open last but one page and infinite scroll works only work with 2 last pages.

    Hope you understand idea. You can play with VK demo:
    Topic from first page
    last but one page
    latest page

    My js skill not enough to implement this, so I can only offer idea.

    Agreed, done and fixed in vanilla/persona (and by extension, lavender).

    @Scuzz you could achieve half of that by using IFTTT. Tags with hashtags would need to be included by nodebb before going to twiddurrrr.

    Grab the .rss link for each category, then when it's updated, push it to twitter. Instant profit. 👍
