Hmm I don't think we expose isAdmin and isModerator globally to the templates so that you can them everywhere. Maybe we should, everything in the config object is exposed so if you open your console and type config any variable you see under that object you can use in the templates. You can also take a look at the routes by prepending api to the url like https://community.nodebb.org/api/topic/1917/users-shouldn-t-be-able-to-purge-their-posts/10 you can use stuff from there in the template as well.
Quickest way to auto post from external site
I want a bot that automatically posts a new topic every time an external blog creates a new post. What is the quickest and easiest way to do this with NodeBB?
Nevermind! I have found a very good solution: I'm using nodebb-plugin-rss combined with the service provided by http://createfeed.fivefilters.org/
