    The Preview button now works.

    This image dragging-and-dropping is a beauty!

  • Any of the devs reading this, how does the Move feature work. I tried to use it and my post just vanished. I could not track it down afterwards.

    It should ask you for a topic id to move to and move the post to that topic.


  • @baris

    Interesting. I just moved that post with an image here, and it puts it at the top of the topic. That does not look too good. What do you think?

    When moving the post, I think it should be possible to add a comment to it, just to let people know why the post was moved.

  • Admin NodeBB

    Yeah the posts in a topic are sorted by their creation time, so if you move a post that is older than the main post it will go to the top. Maybe we can add support for adjusting post positions or just add the moved posts to the end instead of chronologically.

    Yeah we can possibly add some automated notes into the post content when it is moved maybe even a link back to where it was moved from.


  • I think the Move feature has to be carefully rethought. The way it is now, it seems that any registered user can move a post to any other topic, even if it is out of context, as in this case. The post I moved has no relevance to its new location. Perhaps the ability to move should be reserved for admins and/or moderators.

    Talking about moderators, is there a system of promoting users to such a position in NodeBB?

    AFAIK the only way to become a moderator is by setting the favourite threshold in your settings. Once a user gets starred x times, they can now moderate. I would much prefer the option to have a moderator group just one level below admin personally.

  • Admin NodeBB

    TBH I don't like that you can get mod status with favourites either, maybe that functionality has to be moved out to a plugin. A plugin that would add the user to the moderator group if they pass a certain reputation maybe.

    Also we are restricting post move to admins only in 0.3.0. So stay tuned.

    A point of contention between the NodeBB team 😄 -- in any case, I added the rep thresholds originally because I loved the way StackOverflow handles it.

    A compromise like @baris just suggested may be a good solution, actually.


  • @baris

    Yes, I like the idea of restricting post move to admins only.

    But if a moved it moved, I don't think it is proper to have it's new position be above the original post in it's new location. I think it is better that it be inserted somewhere in the midst of the replies, rather than above the original post.

    That would be preferable for sure.


  • Why the moderator can move topics to other boards which he doesn't have privilege to access?

    Is there any possible to set a limitation?

    A moderator should be able to move a topic to any group, even if they're not a moderator of that group, they just won't be able to move it once it's outside of their permissions.


  • @a_5mith

    For example, there are two boards, A and B, board A doesn't have any access restriction, board B is read-only.

    So I have a question, does board A moderator have a permission to move threads to board B ?

    How should I set a restrict for this situation?


  • @nashsai If the moderator can see the forum then they can move topics to it. You could possibly hide it from the move list using css selectors or javascript. But I'm not 100% on that as I'm currently on a mobile. The reason it's like this is because if that wasn't the case. You wouldn't be able to move topics without an admin. So you may as well just hide the move topic functionality.
