Hello

I am running a nodebb forum, and I also have running Rocket chat instance. Now I want to create a custom Room in my rocket chat instance so when I click on that room then that room show all of my nodebb forum threads.

is it possible?

@umardraz To create custom room types, you’ll need to write some code. Here’s how you basically insert new types of rooms: https://github.com/RocketChat/Rocket.Chat/blob/db6aa025d0ce48e07ae58f94ed406d58867abcfc/packages/rocketchat-lib/startup/defaultRoomTypes.js#L10-L15.

To handle the way you want, you will also need to write code on the content of your new type of room.

It will require you to fork Rocket.Chat and run your own fork of it, so please be aware of that. As each release contains security fixes along with new features, you will want to ensure you keep your fork up to date and in sync.
