@arc002 ajaxify.data is just the data the template was run with. Changing it does nothing to the already rendered page.
What you want is to add a hook for filter:topics.getand modify the data there.
There seems to have been a change in 1.5 that prevents access to things inside
nodebb/public if the file is not known by NodeBB. I'm using Let's Encrypt for HTTPS certs and I have the
.well-known folder symlinked into
public/.well-known so that Certbot is able to make the verification by accessing a file from it e.g.
How can I make NodeBB serve from that path without returning 404s?
I can work around it with Nginx proxy hackery, but I'd like this solved on NodeBB's side.
