    We have received reports that after upgrading to v1.16.0, the amount of websocket connections is very high relative to pre-upgrade

    This is due to older socket.io clients (running on version 2) attempting to connect to the new socket.io 3. These protocols are incompatible, and so the connection is rejected, and NodeBB was configured to try indefinitely.

    This is ok. Over time, as your users close their browser windows (or refresh), they will automatically start using the latest version, and socket usage will return to normal levels.

    If you are worried about the excessive traffic, you can configure a nginx condition to drop requests with the query string ?EIO=3. Please see the issue linked above for more information.

    Those userrs are stored in groups with special names, here are the names assuming the category id is 1.


    You can get the user ids from these groups by.

    Groups.getMembers('cid:1:privileges:find', 0, -1, callback); This will give you all the user ids that have the find permission for category 1.

    If you want to get their basic info like username picture slug so you can show user icons you can just use Groups.getMemberUsers('cid:1:privileges:find', 0, -1, calllback);

    src/routes/api.js is where you want to look at. res.json({}) is where you inject variables.
