Normal users are able to "feature" topics.



  • Anyone have any idea why everyone on my forums, regardless of rank, might be able to feature topics? (Including their own)

    I've been having problems with all widgets/plugins that involve featured topics since it was first installed and now this suddenly started happening. I can't find any settings for it anywhere.

    Hi, what do you mean "feature" topics? upvote? downvote? flag?
    don't really get it.



  • Maybe I'm making a mistake here but when we first installed the vanilla NodeBB package, there was an option under "Topic Tools" called "Feature this Topic".

    I couldn't find anything in the settings about it so I looked it up and found several plugins that display said "featured topics" but when I use any of them the links they provide to the topics I chose are all broken.

    Are "featured topics" not built in to the basic NodeBB package?

    You seem to have installed either featured-topics-extended or featured-threads. Neither of these is included in the default package.

    This appears to be a bug, since the option should not appear for non-moderators. However, the buttons do not actually work.

    As for broken links, I tested my plugin featured-topics-extended and all links are working. The plugin featured-threads is broken however.

    Damn I keep forgetting to turn on the "Watch topics you create" option so I keep missing replies on here. Sorry about that!

    Thank you very much for the response, I just figured that out today actually. I had both installed still so I thought that all "featured topics" plugins were broken on my forums, after I disabled the other one yours worked.

    P.S. (Not sure if it's a new feature but I didn't see it at first) But I love the featured topic cards. That's exactly what I was looking for when I first joined these support forums. Keep up the good work!

    P.S.S. If you ever need any testing grounds or anything on a large scale for your plugins, our forums got almost 13,000 registered users in under two weeks and we expect it to continue to grow.
