You probably have another plugin that is using the hook filter:parse.post that is not passing the correct data back, check your plugins for the ones that are using that hook.
meta.config contains settings from NodeBB itself. Plugins retrieve their own settings via the settings module on the client side.
And when I install ehe extended emoji plugin now, bot the skype- and the whatsapp smileys work?
e: yes, they do! bravo!
nodebb-plugin-dbsearch and nodebb-plugin-solr use those hooks 🙂
Thanks for providing much needed assistance @frissdiegurke 😄
