@julian Right, I understand. It just makes it difficult to migrate from a more traditional forum like phpBB (which is the most, or perhaps second-most, used forum software today). I think making it easier to migrate from phpBB's format could only help nodeBB gain more ground Here is the github issue I opened a couple weeks ago. It was closed, though I hope we can reopen it. I'm more than willing to contribute. Let me know if there's anything I can do.

Posts from child categories are not shown on the home page.
Is there a way to create a bunch of categories using a json file?
If so what would that look like?
For instance, lets say i wanted to use a json file to create a category for each state in the usa or every county in a single instead of doing it manually.
What the best way to go about that?
There is no filter.footer.build footer is rendered separately from the page. And those hooks are only used to add extra data to the page so templates can use them to render new stuff. Easiest is to just create a plugin and copy footer.tpl from your base theme ie persona and add your custom code there.
