Just in case anyone else runs into a similar problem, I was looking at the wrong api urls to get what I needed.
I needed to be getting JSON from the topic data, rather than category or post. Most everything is working now.
I am using nodebb at ayuhlive.com
I am using custom static page plugin and created a custom page.
While it works well most of the times, at times the page wont show and will show error that template not found. Then I restart and it starts working again
Anyone faced same problem and has a solution?
Thanks to nodebb community and everyone who has made these plugins and helping others.
Just create a file with the name of your page like name.tpl and copy it from the one included on the plugin
