nodebb_theme_vanilla out of date on fresh nodebb install

Technical Support
  • #1


    I'm attempting to install nodeBB on a Webfaction node and is slowly making headway. I have never been a "web person" and the transition from typical LAMP based setup is a lot to take in, but the rewards look promising.

    Now to the problem:
    I installed nodeBB 0.7.0 via npm and slowly but surely gotten things to spin up. However, when I started nodeBB a lot of the plugins that came with the install seem to conflict with the forum. I followed the various tips and hints and ended up removing the lot. Now I'm stuck with nodebb-theme-vanilla not playing nice:

    25/9 12:11 [19625] - info: [plugins] Plugins OK


    $ grep version node_modules/nodebb-theme-vanilla/package.json
    "version": "1.0.130",

    Any atempt to grab the latest release from github breaks horribly and nodeBB refuses to start. I take it that's due to the theme being developed for a more recent version of nodeBB.

    I have updated everything Node related by npm and 'nodebb upgrade'. I have noticed that I suddenly have a node_modules_0.6.x directory alongside the regular node_modules in nodebb/. No idea where that came from and I haven't touched it.

    Any pointers?

    Why you want to use v0.7.x though?
    Is there any special plugin you want to use?

    Otherwise I would go for the stable v0.8.x branch.

    Hey AOKP. 🙂

    No reason to use 0.7.0 other than that's what npm gave me. I thought that was the latest stable but if it isn't, I'll attempt a fresh install of 0.8.X.

    @TiaZzz Knew I forgot something... v0.8.2 should be published to npm now (or soonish...)

    Quick reply to let others know that v0.8.2 fixed my initial nodeBB woes. Thanks to AOKP and julian for the heads-up and fix.
