@Panda It’s been raised multiple times, but only for the open source version, and not hosted.
NodeBB: Creating pages
On your site, I can see you have a “link” icon which has a dropdown for individual pages. Something like that is suitable for me also.
Also, I saw that on your Policies page, you had 3 topics grouped into a close-open kind of diaplay. How did you do that?
Thanks again! Should I wait to install these once the site has been upgraded to V3?
Also, I went through the whole thread. Seems to be a complicated affair. Anyway, is this how it’s done:
- Open Terminal on Mac
- Add this script: npm install nodebb-plugin-custom-pages
What would be the next steps? The referred page doesn’t seem to have that info. Maybe, I missed.
@mventures It’s not as difficult as it sounds. You just need to gain access to your server via SSH (see https://sudonix.com/topic/445/nodebb-upgrading-to-nodebb-v3-x/6?_=1680448676890) then ensure you are in the NodeBB directory.
From there, you can issue that same code, for example
As you can see from the above, I’ve now installed this on your forum. From here, you’ll now need to activate the plugin before you can use it
In your forum, navigate to
/admin/extend/plugins#deactive. You should see the below
You’ll notice that the new plugin appears in the list, but needs to be activated first before it can be used
Click Confirm. After a few seconds, NodeBB will tell you that the plugin has been activated, but you need to rebuild and restart before it will work
Now you need to rebuild and restart
Confirm, and the rebuild/restart process will commence
You should then get a self-closing message telling you that the forum has restarted successfully (and can now be used). At this point, you should press F5 in your browser console to reload the page
Now in the plugins menu, you should see Custom Pages has been added
Nothing for you to do here, as I’ve already done it on your site
@phenomlab Thank you so much yet again! Much appreciated.
How do I now add the pages?
I went to PLUGINS > CUSTOM PAGES & did the below:
Then, I went to EXTEND > WIDGETS & did the below:
SAVED at both places but nothing has appeared on the footer.
Where am I going wrong?
Thankfully, I have a v3 version ready to go also, and happy to share that if it helps.
