NodeBB Demo Admin?
@dibu Yup, this forum specifically.
I hope it's possible to keep much of the legacy "forum cruft" out of the platform core (superfluous editor features, repeating signatures, polls, posts on user profiles, etc etc)
For the most part we're trying to keep that stuff implemented in plugins. I wouldn't want to insult @Schamper's poll plugin as "cruft" though because I think its pretty cool But yeah I get your point - that's why it's a plugin and not core (even Markdown is a plugin!). This way you can choose whatever you want for your forum, the options are unlimited.
+1 for the demo admin site.
+1 for the admin control panel demo
+2 for the admin control panel demo
Gonna have to pop in here and +1 for Demo Admin site too.
I'm trying to ascertain if this software has what I've seen no other have and it's frustrating. I use Teamspeak for chat, and I'm looking for something that has "Teamspeak"-like permissions.
Most all other BB's, or Forum software, for their Admin access has an "All or nothing" type situation.
I'm looking for something with a more granular approach to permissions. Something that allows you to create groups with "weights".
Groups A, B and C.
Group A is set to weight: 50
Group B is set to weight 40
Group C is set to weight 30
Allowing any group to promote people to the weight of 40 and below for Group B means that Group B could promote people from Group C to Group B. But Group B people can't promote folks beyond.
The reason this is needed is from our ranking structure:
(assume the numbers are weights)
Guild Master 
Senior Officer 
Team Leader 
GM's should be able to promote SO/TL/O
SO's should be able to promote folks to TL/O
It's very hard for me to lay out exactly why I'm needing this other than I simply want layered permissions that give some folks access to some abilities based on weights rather than just an "On or Off" switch.
Anyway. tl;dr +1 Admin Demo!
@Sick Plugin, territory that buddy. Permissions in NodeBB are Find, Access, Create and Reply.
Such plugin currently doesn't exist though.
If I could code, I definitely would.
Something tells me that I've stumbled into something that isn't quite user friendly. The UI and "forums" here are really nice, but I just tried to install it on my debian box and well... it leaves my no-so-admin smart self crying.
I tried to follow this tutorial:
Perhaps I need the "For dumbasses" version.
$ git clone -b v0.5.x https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB.git nodebb
$ git clone -b v0.6.x https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB.git nodebb
when you get to it.
NodeBB can also cover all that server administration business if you just want a forum. Link
Thanks for the shoutout (time for us to build a referral system)
Yeah I haven't updated my blog in months. I should! Sorry for misleading you, I wrote that a long time before we released proper documentation.
This community is really nice and supportive. How does one obtain "referrals' or whatever so you can post on other threads without waiting a long loads of time.
