Assuming I was starting a project where I am allocating portions of the profit to entities that offer us free things such as forum software to house community chit chat... who/where would I donate to in order to support NodeBB?
@yariplus said in Override templates in nodebb-widget-essentials:
@ethanwu I just submitted the changes needed here.
If you want to use it right away, you can just replace the widget-essentials library.js file with mine until it is updated.
Thanks, i will test it today.
@Joykiller Not sure if you're around anymore but I thought I'd respond anyway.
The problem with maintaining a plugin and theme directory is the maintenance aspect. We simply don't have the time to make sure everything is compatible, especially since every plugin created is a community contribution.
So we automate. We rely on plugin developers to report plugin compatibility, and serve only those plugins that are marked compatible. There is one downside, however, and that is plugins will quickly disappear in successive revisions of NodeBB unless the authors keep them up to date.
So there's definitely space for crowdsourcing as well. If a plugin is not marked compatible by the developer directly, multiple reports of compatibility by the plugin users should also count, and if enough votes come in, then the plugin should automatically be reintroduced.
that part isn't in yet, but it's on the wish list.
