I also think it was MongoDB as well because I noticed that the database was set to "0" (default MongoDB on NodeBB setup) and when I changed it to the nodebb database it was as if it was default. Very frustrating but considering the forum was relatively new, not much was lost.

Restarted NodeBB - Everything went poof.
I restarted NodeBB and the website crashed. Tried to find out the problem and then saw that the port designator in the config.json had disappeared. Put that back in and when the forum loads back up its back to "default" 4 categories and 0 posts. Can anyone point me in a right direction?
Some technical information:
LEMP Installed (Nginx)
I had noticed that when hitting the back button on the web browser, the webpage would go back to the previous page but the theme would switch from Persona to Persona Blocks. It seemed very odd so I went into the Themes and uninstalled Persona Blocks to see if that would fix the issue. I hit restart and that is when everything went down the drain.
RE: Persona Blocks 0.2.3
It seems to come down to how many lines a description has and the post for that matter. Will probably hide the actual post comments.
I believe its lines/description/title based. I noticed that when I changed skins the blocks would reformat to a more orderly set up. (I have 12 categories. On some skins I would have a row of 4 a row of 1 a row of 4 and a row of 3. On others I would have 3 rows of 4)
Only difference between skins is font, which can have natural size differences. If your blocks don't line up try and change your skin!
RE: [nodebb-plugin-calendar] Fully featured calendar plugin for NodeBB - Testers needed
Hey is there any progress on this plugin? I really love the idea and was hoping to use it in a new forum I am building! I'm getting a few bugs and errors (though all of them have been detailed on this site) Good luck with school tho!
RE: Navigation Tree between 'New Topic' Button and Header doesn't appear?
Very odd! I accessed the forum from my work computer and I can see it. Although I noticed when I tried on mobile the "Nav Tree" disappears behind the header. Maybe its a browser based issue?
Navigation Tree between 'New Topic' Button and Header doesn't appear?
That picture was a screenshot from the NodeBB forums. The section boxed in red is what I am talking about. Essentially that "tree" does not appear in the forum I built. Can anyone tell me why? It doesn't seem to be a plugin or widget based... appreciate any help/info on this as I am obviously unskilled in these matters!
RE: Newbie needs help after configuring nginx
Nvm I fixed it! Didn't properly follow the guide at https://docs.nodebb.org/en/latest/configuring/proxies.html
Newbie needs help after configuring nginx
I could use a little bit of help and would appreciate any guidance. Never built a website or forum before and I had heard NodeBB was pretty simple/easy. I now have a very new appreciation for what web developers go through. Here is my current status:
Droplet with Digital Ocean
LEMP stack installed
NodeBB and support files (like redis) installed
Domain registered with register.com and DNS set up on Digital Ocean / Register.com
Configured nginx proxy
I've been trying to configure nginx so that whenever you enter the domain cercforums.com it brings up the NodeBB. Except this is what I see after configuring nginx. Before if I accessed NodeBB via Http://IP:Port I would get the standard display of NodeBB.
Can anyone give me an idea on what is going wrong?
