ACP / Dashboard

The dashboard shows an at-a-glance overview of your NodeBB, including pageviews collated by time and day, and other interesting metrics such as current active user count and user location.

System Control

The "Reload", "Restart", and "Maintenance Mode" buttons allow you to administer the running process of NodeBB.


The updates section queries the NodeBB project for a new version of NodeBB, and determines whether you are up-to-date. There is no requirement to update NodeBB, although it is usually recommended in order to obtain the latest features and bug fixes.


The notices allows NodeBB and various plugins to quickly determine if action is required (e.g. if a restart is required).
