Just taking my daily look at http://hackerne.ws and saw that NodeBB is right at the very top!
Might be worth you guys taking a look at some of the C&C there.
Was this a sneaky publicity stunt? :P
Here is a theme I have been working on for NodeBB. It's based on the Vanilla theme. I found the colour scheme at https://kuler.adobe.com/ which has some very nice colour schemes. It's worth checking out.
Screenshots of the theme:
This is a work in progress so expect some bugs and some ugliness until I can sort them out. The admin panel need work but I'm hoping to sort that out soon.
This is my first time doing anything like this so be kind :)

Here is my first plugin for NodeBB!
Over at BitBangers we have a thread for "Must Watch Films" where we post IMDB links to films and a little bit on what we thought about it.
This got me thinking about a plugin that would embed the IMDB information into the page when a link gets posted. After a chat with @Almost and @Schamper I decided that a popover, similar to the cards plugin, would be a better way of doing things.
This plugin relies on the API being available. When testing it i found that the api would drop offline for a minute or so and the popovers would not show, I cannot control this.
Currently the popover will show the Title of the film, Rating, Genre and a short plot. I was hoping to add the film posters to the popover too but IMDB does not allow hotlinking to their images so this feature is unavailable at this time. The OMDB API that I am using does have a poster API but that is currently donators/beta testers only.
If your site is using HTTPS this plugin wont work either as the content is served from OMDB API over HTTP, until the OMDB API enables SSL this plugin will not work correctly on your site.
Test it out and let me know of any bugs!
npm ERR! argv "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\nodejs\\\\node.exe" "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\nodejs\\node_modules\\npm\\bin\\np m-cli.js" "install"
is your issue. I had the same thing a while ago when installing NodeBB on Windows. Too many backslashes for the directories.
We just had a thread with a list of movies we have watched and some info on what we thought about it.
I made an imdb plugin that brings info about the movie when you hover over a an imdb link.
https://github.com/BitBangersCode/nodebb-plugin-imdb could be something you could modify to insert into a db
I have a script that does daily backups for me. I copied the most recent one to the new server.
Restored it using mongorestore or whatever the command is to restore mongo databases. It's been a while so the commands are not fresh in my head.
Once the database has been restored correctly you can run the NodeBB installer.
When it asks for the database you will just tell it the database name of the database you just restored.
This should then install NodeBB with your old database.
Unless something has changed with the later versions of NodeBB then this procedure should work.
@psychobunny I haven't seen Antman, I was told it wasn't very good. I'll have to give it a try.
I havent seen the green lantern either but i knew Ryan Reynolds played the Green Lantern, he also played the Deadpool in Xmen Origins: Wolverine.
Did you see Deadpool make jokes and references to those two films?
