How to add a plugIn to my nodeBB ?
I just installed NodeBB. Now, I want to add a plugIn (from here - https://www.npmjs.com/package/nodebb-plugin-dbsearch) Do I just need to run the (npm install nodebb-plugin-dbsearch) command from my nodeBB install directory ? Is there anything else I need to do have the plugIn working ?
You should be able to load the plugin from within the ACP (administrator control panel.) Go here:
ACP > Extend > Plugins > Download Plugins
- Look for the one you want and then click
- Activate the newly installed plugin
ACP > Extend > Plugins > Installed Plugins > specific plugin > Activate
- You may have to either restart or reload after installing and then activating the plugin
Many plugins have features available after the reload/restart. Those features are typically found under
ACP > Plugins.
@assamese that plugin should be installed by default on a new install. You just need to activate it to use it.
Thanks everybody for your help.
I used the ACP to activate the dbsearch plugin. So, I was expecting to see a 'search'-box on the NodeBB-pages, but I do not see anything. So, how do I use this search-plugIn ?
Sorry, if I am missing something obvious.
Thanks in advance.
I meant to say that the 'Search' icon does not show up
