I checked out v1.16.2 of the forum and was running node version 15.12 when I encountered the same error.
I downgraded to node version 14.6.0 and now this error is not coming up.
I hope this info can help anyone.
I'm planning to rewrite my website from php to node with angular2, the website has a forum so I'm looking for a replacement. I wonder how hard it would be to integrate NodeBB in a website. I'm looking for the following features:
Thanks for your time
Because of the API, Your chats / notifications should be able to be done rather easily too. Just need to get the user to login via nodebb's login then you can pull notifications. How you do that is up to you and how you make it notify is also up to you.
Nodebb as the forum link. Yeah thats easy. Put nodebb in a dir of "forums" and then just link to it
Moving away from php is a good idea and seeing as nodebb and angular both use node.js it looks like you are going with the right forum software.
