All done. Added you on github, twitter, and facebook.
I've also been talking up NodeBB a lot on a couple of forums I frequent.
Both of my forums (Mybb and NodeJS) run about the same speed on the same server. I haven't run actual benchmarks, but neither has appeared too slow to use. The Mybb forum has been around longer, so it has more posts and users. There was once I was I got DDOSed on the MyBB forum, and it didn't take much to take me out. The NodeBB forum has never had issues, and is a public forum and not closed off like the mybb forum.
The real advantage of NodeJS comes with it's ease of use of sockets. If you want instant updates, I see people building Node servers and connecting php to them for their instant updates. I don't see the reason for that, it seems ridiculous to have to use so many different technologies for your website. I was dead set on using Flarum once it came into being, until I saw this topic. http://discuss.flarum.org/d/534-community-chat-on-webpage-with-forum-usernames/5
It made me realize that PHP couldn't compete without using outside technologies with some of the instant functionality. I wanted that instant functionality, so I ran straight back to NodeBB. If you don't care about the instant live updating functionality, i'd say either technology is just fine.
I have plans to make this work again in the near future. Until that time you can use the html widget he mentions in https://github.com/RestingCoder/nodebb-widget-discord/issues/3.
Of course, Discord has APIs and everything now, so rewriting the plugin should not be too bad. And my wife is pretty busy this week(that means I am free), so I'll see if I can make this my priority instead of playing video games.
It was just updated recently. Not abandoned. The developer was just busy with things and wasn't able to get around to it right away.
The reason why they don't include every feature in the core is because some people will want a feature to work one way, and other people will want it to work another way. NodeBB doesn't include every feature in the core to allow greater customization to the features that some people will want developed one way and other people another.
Last update, this issue is closed.
It seems that there is an issue when I was trying to use the terminal built into the ajenti panel. I was using ajenti to try and make my life easier when I am not at home, but that turned out to be a bad idea. Anyway, everything works just fine when I ssh into my server using bitvise.
comes back to life
It even uses the old ADR graphics.
If only I could upvote this 100 times.
You get what I mean.
Yeah, I don't even see this as a feature request. Nodebb has a pm system already. I think it could be expanded upon to make it better (multiple participants, inbox & other folders), but I don't think writing a completely separate message system is the answer.
It's been a while since I hosted nodebb. I haven't had much time to work on websites as of late. I used to host (about a year ago) NodeBB and the DB on a $5 digital ocean droplet with no problems. It wasn't very active, max of 3-5 people a day. But it felt like it could have easily handled way more without issue.
Works "ok", but the template you use has to support a widget space just on the homepage if you only want it there. I believe the default nodebb templates have only a global widget space. The Archive is broken so you won't be able to look back at old messages.
@pitaj Too late to say, I went ahead and downgraded to npm 4 in the minute after my post. It did appear to be the issue though as it is working now.
I'm on 6.11.3, the latest LTS. I was on 4 prior to the update, but ran into issues installing telling me that my node version wasn't new enough for Benchmarkjs (your new template engine). I figured it would be safe to update to the latest LTS?
I just updated to Nodebb v1.6 from 1.4. I noticed that whenever I went and installed a plugin that it removed the plugin I installed previously. I was trying to get my SSO set back up. So I installed the facebook SSO. Then I installed the Google SSO and it removed the facebook SSO. Then I installed the twitter sso, and the google was removed.
Has anyone else experienced this? I also installed the shoutbox in there, and it removed the twitter sso, so I don't think it is just related to the SSO.
As of date is it the only option available? shared hosting still not possible?
Not unless the shared hosting provider gives you some command line access and will let you install nodejs, and run several npm commands. Plus they have to have MongoDB or Redis access for database. Most shared hosting providers don't have the software necessary for running nodebb, and they won't let you install it.
