First install issues / suggested improvements



  • Just been setting up nodebb (v1.0.2) to see whether it would be suitable for our project. A few things I have noticed that I think could be improved - apologies if some are already known:

    • Poor documentation for config.json when running behind a proxy - eg I found limited information regarding the "bind_address" parameter which is needed if you want the frontend url in /recent.rss but still want to bind to localhost.

    • no title text for the toolbar images when composing a message (so you get a description on hover) - would be useful so you don't have to guess what the icons are (they may seem obvious, but I think it's a simple improvement)

    • the "compose help" could be clearer - why not an icon on the toolbar ? When clicking it a popup mentioning markdown appears, the link opens in the same window. Clicking back gets back to the forum, and the post content re-appears if pressing "new topic", but the title and tags get lost (using firefox 45). Surely opening the composer docs in a new window would be preferable

    • the composer box keeps going offscreen when I am writing, and I am having to increase the size of the composing area.

    @BuZz I would suggest you post the issues on the NodeBB github issue tracker https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/issues



  • ok can do - wasn't sure if it was preferred to use the forum first (as it is on our project, as otherwise our bugtracker gets filled with support requests). Thanks

    if the issues are not with your installation then I think the dev team prefers the github issue tracker so that they don't get lost in here.
