I need to modify the homepage a little.
I have seen the code ,but I still don't know where generate it . someone can tell me ?
The source files are mainly in the theme, which is a separate dependency. For example, the persona theme is found here: https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-theme-persona
You'll want to fork the theme, probably
