    hey @Joykiller I'm quite certain this works with the latest version of NodeBB as we are using this currently on our forum: https://blog.nodebb.org/v1-5-0-a-long-awaited-release/

    May not be up to date with the latest version of Ghost though, so that might be the issue here. It's come up pretty recently that we should consider upgrading our blog to latest, and when that happens I'll certainly make sure that the plugin works with it 😄

    Cool, I'll be waiting there has been alot of changes in Ghost lately.

    I have a possibly unusual use case that shows I probably don't understand how NodeBB integration is working with this plugin. I'm on Wordpress.

    Here's what I thought happened: the plugin uses the Wordpress article id to use to create a new NodeBB topic with that same id when the Publish button is pressed. Afterward, since the topic already exists, you see the posts and comment form instead of the Publish button.

    My use case is that the topic already exists (it was created in NodeBB) and I'm trying to tie a Wordpress post to it. I'm using the general approach and setting nodebb.articleID to the NodeBB topic id.

    What I expected was to see the comment box and current posts in that topic. What I'm seeing instead is the Publish button.

    Am I misunderstanding how things should be working?

    You need to click the publish button before comment box shows up.



  • You need to click the publish button before comment box shows up.

    What does the publish button do, exactly? I had been assuming it created the topic in NodeBB. But if the topic already exists, what does publish do?



  • I confirmed on a test site that clicking the button does create a new topic, so clearly I am not understanding what the Javascript articleId variable really is doing.

    Can anyone shed any light on that? I can cope with the button creating the topic, but I do need to know what role the articleId plays in the process. I'm using this plugin to power comments on virtual pages, pages that don't actually exist as separate Wordpress pages, so I don't have a post id to use.

    Does the articleId need to be a unique value? Must it be an integer? What's the legal range of it?

    Edit: For anyone doing something similar to what I'm doing, here are the answers:

    The articleId must be unique, the plugin establishes a mapping between it and a new topic id. There does not appear to be a way to tie a Wordpress article to an existing topic.

    The articleId does not need to be an integer, as long as you use quotes it can be any string. It's solely used to find the topic id in NodeBB.

    So if you're using it like I am, for virtual pages that don't actually exist in Wordpress, you can safely coexist with comments on normal Wordpress pages by using an alphanumeric unique id for the virtual articleIds.

    I'm using Nodebb 1.6.1

    I installed via npm install nodebb-plugin-blog-comments.
    I have logged into the ACP and activated the plugin. However when I go to Plugins->Blog Comments, I get this message in the nodebb log:

    23/10 23:18:20 [11464] - warn: [plugins/load] The following plugins may not be compatible with your version of NodeBB. This may cause unintended behaviour or crashing. In the event of an unresponsive NodeBB caused by this plugin, run ./nodebb reset -p PLUGINNAME to disable it.

    If I copy and paste "comments" folder from:
    C:\Temp\NodeBB\node_modules\nodebb-plugin-blog-comments\public\templates
    To:
    C:\Temp\NodeBB\build\public\templates

    Then I can the access blog-comments. However I do not know if this is a proper solution as I am unable to get things to work so far.

    Is there a test I can do to see if the plugin is setup correctly?

    I'm trying to use just a javascript front end to display comments.

    Your help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Did you try running ./nodebb build before copying over the templates?



  • Hoping this is still good 👍 Looks like there's a recent commit though so 😁 . I have a need for another plugin that integrates with GhostCMS so I hope this will be able to help me see how to do that as well. Thank you! If I can figure this all out I promise to release the plugin.

    I've just seen that the official NodeBB Development Blog has been upgraded to Ghost 1.21, and NodeBB comments are working on it.

    So I've installed it with the current Ghost and NodeBB, and it works.



  • I'm trying to get this installed now on my Wordpress for https://digitalnomad.blog ... the JSON API recommended originally years ago, hasn't been updated in 3+ years. No comments in the support there, and says it may not be compatible with recent / coming Wordpress installations.

    Will this nodebb plugin work with other WP JSON API plugins, such as JSON Content Importer - https://wordpress.org/plugins/json-content-importer/
