Hi NodeBB Team,
After three years of research between NodeBB, Discourse and Flarum, ultimately I have decided to go with NodeBB for my first forum.
I am doing some research on (Ubuntu and MongoDB) customizing NodeBB topic and frontpage according to my needs. I have started with topic part. I am totally new into web development. It will be great help if you can guide me with following questions,
How can I restrict users from creating New Topic? Only Admins and Moderators should be able to do that.
I am heavily dependent on HTML for customizing posts, so how to restrict general users from using Markdown HTML. Can we use two different Reply solutions for users and Mods? I mean only Admin and Mods should use HTML in the posts.
Is there any way to restrict quoting Admins or specific post?
Is there any way to start on shared hosting. I know till 2016 it was, NO, but anything changed after that?
Your guidance are highly appreciated. Thank you.
