RE: Shoutbox Add-On Request
Ok, I tried that, so first install it:
npm install nodebb-plugin-shoutbox
Restart nodebb. Active the shout plugin in Extend -> Plugins -> 'Activate' button.
But then, I still can't find the shoutbox in the available widgets list :? ?
EDIT: Restart nodebb after activation. Then you also should have a menu item, admin -> plugins -> Shoutbox. Thanks!
RE: [nodebb-plugin-emailer-local] Local email plugin
Ok so local mailer is now build-in. But I was using postfix. The following command is working fine:
mail -s "Hello world" email@example.com
This will send me an e-mail.I configured gmail SMTP setting in postfix. I'm 100% sure that is working.
Using NodeBB I can't send messages. I also can't find any settings page for mail configurations in NodeBB. I don't see any errors as far I can see in
./nodebb log. So what should I do? Why is it not working?
I already configured postfix, should I also configure nodemailer some how :s ?
nodebb upgrade brakes Redis / doesn't fix dependencies
I tried to upgrade from v0.9.0 to v0.9.1. It seems like a basic upgrade. However this './nodebb upgrade' will break Redis configuration. I did all the thinks listed on this page:
When I do a
./nodebb upgrademy NodeBB will gives errors about Redis. Yes Redis is installed and running. The only 'dirty' fix is to run
./nodebb setupI guess that is not the idea. This issue is still not solved... EDIT: Now my installation is even broken!

It's even worse now. The ```./nodebb upgrade`` command doesn't upgrade my NodeBB installation. Now my installation is broken and not working at all!

I found out the only fix is to manually execute the following line:
npm install nodebb-theme-lavender
nodebb upgradedidn't help at all!
Bottom-line: Check the nodebb upgrade script, this script isn't working as expected. I already have two issues:
- Upgrade script doesn't fix the nodebb dependencies
- Upgrade script brake Redis or configuration file
