Email plugin for password reset

  • Hi @julian, @baris & anyone else working on this issue,

    I need to reset a password and I found the post where you said you need to install the plugin to do so.

    I ran npm install nodebb-plugin-emailer-mailgun and then installed the plugin through the admin GUI. When I tried to run the code again, here's what I got:

    Aarons-MacBook-Air-2:forum aaronclaytondunn$ node app

    Thanks in advance for any help on this issue! I have no idea how to undo what I just did, so the local version of my app is broken right now. Thanks!

    Hm... that's weird -- those line numbers don't point to anything, since our files don't match up anymore.

    You can reset your nodebb (this just turns off all plugins, and resets the theme) by running ./nodebb reset

  • Hmmm...that didn't seem to reset it. Here's what I got when I ran that:

    Aarons-MacBook-Air-2:forum aaronclaytondunn$ ./nodebb reset
    Welcome to NodeBB
    Usage: ./nodebb {start|dev|watch|language}

    start Start NodeBB in production mode
    dev Start NodeBB in development mode
    watch Start NodeBB in development mode and watch for changes
    upgrade Run NodeBB upgrade scripts, ensure packages are up-to-date

    Oh, wow looks like your code is quite outdated. Can you let us know your git hash? Run git rev-parse HEAD

  • @julian Thanks for the help! Here's the result--

    Aarons-MacBook-Air-2:forum aaronclaytondunn$ git rev-parse HEAD

  • @julian Any idea when 4.0 will be available? What would you recommend I do in the meantime? Thanks!

  • No promises on 0.4x, but I would say under two weeks - if you need email functionality etc the most stable version of NodeBB currently is 0.3.2 so you'd have to drop down to that. Either that or get up to date and live on the Edge 🙂 (Hopefully not a production forum!)

    p.s. this community forum is running on Edge 😉
