NodeBB upgrade now cant post

Solved Bugs
  • On my site An annoying ‘n out of n’ banner comes over the reply button, and the forum bar is just below that
    So I can just see a fraction of the reply button but cant click it.
    I cant even screenshot it to show example now as that seems ‘disabled’ as a new ‘feature’

    Id like to stop screenshot disabled, and remove this ‘8 out of 8 banner’. Is that possible?

  • I’ve just seen the duplicate post on NodeBB. Can you go to /admin/plugins/harmony and match the settings below then save

    That issue is caused by element positioning where the bottom bar should auto hide to prevent that issue. If that doesn’t work, disable the quick reply feature and see if that helps.

  • @Panda NodeBB doesn’t disable the ability to take a screenshot. That’s at operating system level not application, so something else is stopping that.

    I’ll need a screenshot of sorts, or access to your forum to be able to see what’s going on.

  • Thanks, can post now.
    I find it disconcerting that ‘out of the box settings’ dont work. If it wasnt for your help I would have broken forum now!
    Thats why sometimes I double post urgent questions on both forums as I appreciate your fast and accurate responses 🙂

  • @Panda yes, for some reason, that is the case. If you need an urgent response, it’s probably better to post here because of the time difference.

    @crazycells hmm. That’s odd. I haven’t made any changes from recollection but I could be wrong. I’ll need to check.

    EDIT - very strange. I honestly don’t recall adding the below CSS block to alter the bottom bar, but you’re right…

    .bottombar-nav { padding: 0px !important; }

    I’ve removed this so it reflects stock Harmony.

    I just wanted to ask because I don’t have much knowledge about the new installation.
    Thank you for the explanatory answer.

    @crazycells yes, I’ve just seen that and modified the post. It seems to only happen if you have a space between the “greater than” symbol and the actual text.

    Clearly a markdown thing.

    @crazycells yes, I’m aware of that. Need to fix

    EDIT- fixed. Caused by the same CSS that is used to absolutely position the “verified” group badge in the posts view. Amended this CSS so that is specifically targets the post stream as below

    li[component="post"] a[href*="/groups/verified"] { position: absolute !important; left: 8px; z-index: 2; margin-top: 1px; border-radius: 999px !important; line-height: 14px; display: block; height: 22px; margin-left: 0px !important; }

    @DownPW Yes, it is. It’s set far too low meaning other elements with a higher preference will sit over the top of it.

    @Panda as, yes, now I understand and that makes 100% sense. It means those who get down voted can still have an opinion and use common services.

    And yes, you’re right. Rather than down vote, just ignore if you don’t agree.

    @DownPW sure. Let me have a look at this in more detail. I know nginx plus has extensive support for this, but it’s not impossible to get somewhere near acceptable with the standard version.

    You might be better off handling this at the Cloudflare level given that it sits in between the requesting client and your server.

    The real issue here is that most people consider forums to be “dead” in the sense that nobody uses them anymore, and social media groups have taken their place. Their once dominant stance in the 90’s and early 00’s will never be experienced again, but having said that, there are a number of forums that did in fact survive the social media onslaught, and still enjoy a large user base.

    Forums tend to be niche. One that immediately sticks out is Reddit - despite looking like it was designed in the 80s, it still has an enormous user base. Another is Stack Overflow, which needs no introduction. The key to any forum is the content it offers, and the more people whom contribute in terms of posting , the more popular and widely respected it becomes as a reliable source of information.

    Forums are still intensely popular with gamers, alongside those that offer tips on hacking etc.
