Use this codegit fetch # Grab the latest code from the NodeBB repository git checkout v3.x git reset --hard origin/v3.x
And you will have the latest version without specifying it
I’m using the ‘private forum’ plugin, and it does as expected, it redirects to a login page when any url is visited. However, for a private forum (invitation only) you would also need the ‘register’ button to be gone. Or perhaps have some kind of manual approval process. Is this possible?
@qwinter potentially possible with a hook, or the old fashioned way of using CSS to hide the button. For the register page itself, you could force a redirect to the login page which would achieve something similar, albeit slightly primitive.
@phenomlab There’s this plugin:
But it’s old and I worry about non-maintained pluings (have used WP in a past life and I want nothing of the short). Is nodebb’s plugin ecosystem as brittle as WP’s?
Will search for that setting, this feels like it could be in core.
What is the best way to learn about plugin quality other than installing them and realize later that something is broken? Asking the elders here? I coudn’t find any kind of listing. Perhaps because node has a decent package manager this could be somewhat easier to implement than the wild wild west that WP plugins are.
@qwinter the problem with NodeBB plugins it’s that, like WordPress, they are susceptible to being abandoned or becoming stale in the sense that further development ceases and the project becomes forgotten.
Learning plugin development for yourself isn’t too hard and the are some very concise guides on the NodeBB site that detail this process.
The NodeBB ecosystem is well supported, but that may not extend to third party plugins.
