@smartpunter Thanks a ton.
I will try that.
I have a bare metal EC2 with following configuration,
8-Core, 16 Threads
2TB NVMe SSD
I will host entire stack on this server. My question is how much load (simultaneous users and topics) NodeBB will be able to handle? Also is the 2TB enough for 100000 users and 1 million topics?
ACP means admin control panel
- Make sure plugin is installed and active
- Go to ACP > Plugins > Custom Pages
- Add a new custom page called "home"
- Save and restart NodeBB
- Open ACP > Appearance > Widgets
- Go to the "home.tpl" tab
- Add widgets to the page there to craft your custom Homepage
- Save and restart NodeBB
- Go to ACP > General > Homepage
- Select the custom page as your Homepage
I am not able to proceed to point 3!
Here is the screenshot from Custom Page plugin, clicking on the green button on the lower right corner does not do anything!
@julian Thank you. I will try that out.
No, its not working for me! I can not find way to restrict users to have HTML in their posts while only Admins having it.
Is there any way that in every topic I can have different custom HTML (just like widgets)? topic.tpl with widgets perfectly works for me but that sets the html globally while I need different for every topic.
Also nodebb custom pages plugin not working for me. It is not showing the button for adding new route.
And custom homepage plugin bringing the homepage down and also clicking profile icon on top right corner does not show anything. Everything works fine when I deactivate the plugin!
@pitaj I have html/image sliders inside my posts. That I want only Admins to post and for others it will restrict HTML.
@pitaj Exactly! That will restrict other users to post HTML. Sanitization is not working for me as it is removing most of the features from my posts.
@pitaj I mean, if multiple composers are possible? Like NodeBB has Quick Reply and Reply at the same time. Like if we can have two different WYSIWYG composers. One for Admins and another for all.
@pitaj Thank you a lot. I will try your suggestions. One more question, can we enable multiple Reply editor? I mean one for Admin and another for others?
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.
