Which are your favorite nodeBB plugins?



  • To new nodeBB users who are about to launch a new community with already several 10k active members. For example, we're currently trying the following ones but the first one doesn't work somehow for us:

    • nodebb-plugin-canned-responses
    • list itemnodebb-plugin-carton
    • nodebb-plugin-category-sort-by-votes
    • nodebb-plugin-deny-moderator-access

    So which plugin do you use most and recommend? :blush:



  • IMHO must have plugin:

    • nodebb-plugin-embed-combo
    • nodebb-plugin-youtube-embed
    • nodebb-plugin-imgur

    Also very useful for me:

    • nodebb-plugin-sso-vk (vk very popular in russian community, I use fork by iiiyx/nodebb-plugin-sso-vk, original not updated long time, but forked version is good)
    • nodebb-plugin-telegram-notifications (also without updates long time)


  • Thanks @alff0x1f for sharing these insights! :smiley:



  • pretty much needed if you want a usable search
    nodebb-plugin-solr

    this one is great if you want to have any kind of announcement/blog page
    nodebb-plugin-featured-topics-extended

    two other plugins that made me choose nodebb over a different forum software
    nodebb-plugin-newsletter
    nodebb-plugin-minecraft-integration

    tldr @yariplus <3

    Yes, @yariplus and other @3rd-Party-Developers are very much beloved here :smile:

    In the newer stable releases of NodeBB, we've actually updated the search so that posts are returned by relevance, instead of by post time, so Solr is even better now :smile:

    I'd recommend iframely, myself :D

    Re: canned-responses, feel free to start a new topic and ping me, as it is my plugin, thanks.

    What version of NodeBB did this start in, and does this require Solr?

    In the spirit of staying on topic, here are some of my favorite plugins

    v1.2.0 possibly... and it affected both dbsearch and solr.



  • @julian thanks for offering your help. First we're finishing importing the content from Joomla and we'll then see. Quick question: is it possible to restrict "canned-responses" to moderators and admins only? If so where? :blush:

    Very late, but I use this JS in my custom header to limit canned responses to admins only

        // Hide canned responses unless you are an admin
        $(window).on('action:composer.loaded', function() {
            if (!app.user.isAdmin) {
                $('.composer [data-format="canned-responses"]').hide();
            }
        });
