Category Header/Introduction Text

Feature Requests
  • I have a feature request for a optional category header [markdown] text displayed here:

    Many of your categories requires some introduction and or additional information. Sticky threads just isn't good enough [people don't read them].

    Like in the bug report category here on the forum, it would be nice to add a link to github issue tracker and give a short explanation on how to add a bug report.

  • This is a cool idea, the category description can be used there as well. We could have some kind of category header that shows this info.

  • They should probably be two different things. Category description should be a short text like today, while the introduction could potentially be longer (and preferable support markup).

    Got an even better idea... We could actually use the "Widget" feature. Would only require a new widget property where you can specify which category it should be shown on... that way you could place texts both in header/footer/sidebar for a specific category. Flexible!

  • @hek I like that idea, At the moment I am just putting an if statement in the header, and depending which page is show, it shows different images/text.

  • @hek, I'm really likeing the implementation outlined in your second post.

    I've been struggling with this and I've posted before and the solution was to run a script and a plugin to have all users Ignore a category. That causes a whole other set of issues.

    The situation is that we have categories that are very noisy and of very low value to anybody but the (usually only 2) participants. For these categories I would like the following "Quiet Mode":

    Topics do not appear in All Unread, All Recent, nor All Popular Topics do not appear in Suggested Topics nor any other widget list Topics do not appear in the email digest Topics would not be considered "Ignored" so they would still show up in pick lists so that you can filter on them.

    If you're good with this, I can file something in Github. I wanted to post here first before.

    This would be in lieu of or 7008 would be in lieu of this.

    and @pichalite I do still get the following error in my logs when starting nodebb:

    5/9 03:20 [25455] - 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.

    @julian That would be awesome, Julian. As @KnownSyntax said, it is simple things like that that makes it easier to present NodeBB as a solution to other moderators and users. The engine is already head and shoulders above rest.

    Will resetting the plugin do the job (as in nodebb reset plugin persona ) ?
