NodeBB v1.16.0 - One Last Release For A Weird Year

It's not news to say 2020 has been... challenging. In Toronto, the home of NodeBB HQ, we've gone from a spring lockdown to a cautious summer reopening, to lockdown again — sigh. But the team has never stopped working, and have managed to squeeze out one last release before we thankfully turn over the calendar.

Improvements include:

  • Topic thumbnails. Multiple topic thumbnails now supported per topic. Theme integration (e.g. Persona) will follow in the near future.

Topic Thumbnails

  • Plugins admin. Plugins are now able to override the ACP relogin challenge. The default behaviour was (and still remains) a re-entering of the password. As an example, the Two-Factor Authentication plugin takes advantage of this new functionality by presenting a 2FA challenge instead.

  • Updated topic navigator. We have added a new topic navigator for those using infinite scrolling! Click the bar at the bottom right to open the navigator and try it out for yourself.
