    This is just a little snippet.

    This is about the question How can I add custom data to a post? a small tutorial

    How to add custom data permanently to a post It will be saved into the object:

    You need the following hook:

    { "hook": "filter:post.create", "method": "postCreate" }

    This hook is fired, when a Post is created. So it contains RAW Data.

    A filter:hook like "hook": "filter:post.create" can be edited before beeing proceeded.

    plugin.postCreate = function(data, callback){ // Edit data here callback(null, data); }

    You can access all Data you can work with via the data object.

    All those filter-hooks needs callbacks. The callback contains the modified / added / removed data.

    Whats inside the data object?

    The data object contains two main objects.

    this.post this.data post: { pid: 259, uid: 2, tid: 111, content: '### This is just a little snippet.', timestamp: 1617150411838 }, data: { uuid: '7277s31-6d23-43sa-1284-ad27e42yx879', title: 'How to add custom data to post serverside - in a nutshell', content: '### This is just a little snippet.', thumb: '', cid: '2', tags: [], uid: 2, req: { [...] }, timestamp: 1617150411838, fromQueue: false, tid: 111, ip: '111.123.2123.21', isMain: true } }

    With all the data you can work with. But only this.post is directly effected (lol) to the post Object.
    If you add data here. It will be attached to the post forever and you can access it any time. Even after plugin disable.

    So now add custom data:

    plugin.postCreate = function(data, callback){ // adds data **PERMANENT** to post // before any other procession -> RAW DATA (markdown) //data.post.myData = "directly effected to post you can work with it in next step"; //data.data.myData = "other data for other things I don't know"; var myData = {}; myData.name = "Schmock"; myData.signature = "raz0rn"; // Stick myData to post object data.post.myData = myData; // Debug? // console.log("POST CREATE", data); // finish the process() - passes on modified data callback(null, data); }

    So myData has added to post:

    post: { pid: 259, uid: 2, tid: 111, content: '### This is just a little snippet.', timestamp: 1617150411838, myData: { name = "Schmock", signature = "raz0rn", } }

    The data is stored. Everybody is happy.

    How to add dynamic data before render a post in template It wont be saved to the object. You can use this for dynamic things or logic before rendering the page.:

    You need the following hook:

    { "hook": "filter:topics.addPostData", "method": "addPostData" }

    This hook is fired before engine renders the template.
    It also needs a callback because its a filter-hook.

    plugin.addPostData = function(data, callback){ // modify data temporarily before it gets passed on to next step callback(null, data); }

    Same thing as above. Only the hook is different. And the data we are changing is temporarily.
    Data contains all data we can use for the dynamicness lol: .

    plugin.addPostData = function(data, callback){ // You can work with pre-parsed and already saved data .... // or put in something very flexible without saving to db like jquery-like dynamic etc etc // Debug? // console.log("addPostData?", data) var _posts = data.posts; _posts.forEach(function(post){ if(post.myData){ // add data to post if "myData" is there post.content = "THIS POST HAS MY OWN DATA -> CONTENT IS OVERWRITTEN"; } // this here affects all posts post.user.signature = "Ihr seid alle Schmocks!"; }); // Overwrite data and pass modified data on to the template engine data.posts = _posts; callback(null, data); }

    Now you can work with posts like a boss.

    Thanks and bye

    Important Note:

    Remind, that myData is available via API.


    returns your added data

    "content": "THIS POST AS MY OWN DATA -> CONTENT IS OVERWRITTEN", "myData": { "name": "Schmock", "signature": "raz0rn" }

    @baris Thank you very much. This worked! 🙂

    €: I additionally use the hook

    $(window).on('action:ajaxify.start', function (ev, data) { $('div.topic-header-image').hide(); });

    so that the header container with the image is hiding immediatly and before ajaxify.end 👍

    I use a slightly modified version of lavender for my site, and up until now that's been quite a headache.

    I've had to maintain an entire theme which is just a fork of lavender and constantly merge in changes just so I can have one template file be slightly different.

    I was wondering if this is now something I can resolve with the baseTheme parameter?

    If MyTheme has a baseTheme of nodebb-theme-lavender, which in turn has a baseTheme of nodebb-theme-vanilla does that mean that I can change my repo to just be the one altered file?

    I remember in the past I tried inheritance and found it didn't work.

    Good news, that we don't need to add filter, there is filter for user profile: filter:user.account
    But what is about static template?

    Category data is not avaiable in the header, if you want to use it you will have to use the hook filter:middleware.renderHeader and add the data.
