@hek ironically I sent a request for that already and was told to wait until the end of October. However, before I will pay 300$ on a plugin which allows me to load custom JS I rather throw the money away for a DB conversion to IPB.
And as mentioned before. The issue is not only occuring with ads. It is related to ANY custom JS.
If you think that this is not worth to investigate I can't help it. Why you even read the topic then?
I do think I speak for all the webmasters when I say that we need to load custom stuff. No matter if it is CSS or JS and that we also need to have a proper possibility to monetize our sites with either a working plugin or a different method.
Otherwise you can continue to host MC kiddies.
I really do like NodeBB, but also am happy at the same time that I didn't applied it to all of my sites.
And considering the fact that it wants to take a leadership in forum software by showing how functional it is, it also shows how "unprofessional" it is.
Don't understand this as hate. But just think of the following use case. You want to run an enterprise forum and have to choose between traditional forum software or NodeBB. NodeBB seems to have all the features you need, but unfortunately it is not capable to deal with some of your custom code. So what will you do? But keep in mind that the other forum software would be extendable to have the same features as NodeBB within a few simple steps.
