    far fa-pencil-ruler is a paid icon (the solid version is free). Free parts of the regular pack work just fine - see for a list of them. It's much more limited than the solid free pack though (151 icons vs 1001), so that's probably why you ran into this problem so easily.

    The only issue that you might run into if you're using a version before v2.2.0 is that fab class conflicts with another class in Persona theme turning all brand icons into action buttons, but this is resolved in current versions of Persona.

    If you have a paid version of FA5 it should be fairly simple to use it instead - you'd need to replace the FA files in public/vendor/fontawesome with the new ones, set fa-font-path to vendor/fontawesome/webfonts in _variables.less and import the light and duotone less files in src/meta/css.js.

    Also, I wanted to add that FA6 is slated to be added in NodeBB 3.0 (it's waiting until a major release since icon style being changed is possibly breaking)

    @pitaj said in Many NodeBB forums have a message... connection... lost...:

    The "connection lost" message is usually caused because the URL at which you are visiting a NodeBB forum is not the "url" value set in config.json

    I can be on for hours. Then I leave that tab and work in another tab for a while, and then when I click back on the tab for I will be spammed with connection lost.

    You have enabled MongoDB auth settings + given the right password.

    security.authorization must be enabled in mongodb. This must be an auth only issue!

    It is taking me some time - mostly because I'm not familiar enough with NodeJS / NodeBB.

    Some observations:

    Took a while to get the ./nodebb setup routine to work - had to do it first for MongoDB and then for Redis and then combine the two files and restart (redis / mongodb nodejs files do not get installed on the npm install command).

    Then got stuck with launching multiple processes on reboot with systemd. Gave up on that and just used a crontab @ reboot line to run a shell script. Need to figure out how to restart / reload processes seamlessly.

    Found some issues with and spdy - did not investigate, disabled spdy on nginx.

    Found some issues with the 0.7.0 branch and upgraded to master 0.7.1 and found that much more stable. But these were plugin related - sections, adsense - dropped them both.

    Made the mistake of setting the production flag in the environment variable NODE_ENV. 🙂

    As of now, have a test site running persona, notifications plugins on a distributed setup - NFS / REDIS / MONGO DB on one server and a barebones NODEJS + NGINX/SSL on another.

    Seems stable for now on a test setup on will give it a day or two while I play around with the templates / plugins and watch memory usage, before I go through another effort to set the autoscale / loadbalancer up.

    @baris @julian @psychobunny - I really like what I see so far. Well done. If all goes well with the setup / eval, I will be dropping you guys an email to see if I can fund some development. 🙂
