@lewismcmahon There's no way to know what the full url is besides what's presented in config.json, since multiple URLs can point to the same NodeBB.
The nconf solution is the easiest.
Should I write a plugin if I want to change all the postures that link outside of the forum? I dont want to change the urls in the database. It should be a type of filter that changes the urls when rendering the posts.
In the post you have a link to http://www.google.com
But I want http://myproxy.com?u=http://www.google.com
In other words a prefix before the urls and the url must be urlencoded
$prefixsettinginacp.url_encode($urlfromdb). Maybe this is supereasy todo
Have a look at this plugin: https://github.com/psychobunny/nodebb-plugin-youtube/blob/master/library.js
A post filter is probably the most simplest type of plugin that you could make for NodeBB. Using that format you could write a regular expression to find all links and add your prefix
Cool, is it easy to get a text field in the acp as setting for this plugin? Iam going to fiddle with this later
Have a look here for a sample admin page
I wish we could get more contributions to this plugin, us core devs just don't have the time to add all the cool samples and stuff to this plugin
Yeah, I love this project. I will try to help out as much as possible. Problem is that I have a newly started company and all my focus is in that now. Food on the table must go first hehe
I have to add that the kitchen-sink plugin is using the plain config-access in combination with the old settings-module. That's fine for a few attributes, but when it's getting more you should consider using the Settings Framework that allows you to save objects of any type, etc.
@psychobunny FYI I'm currently working on sth that's related to sample plugins: A rework of my nodebb-grunt-development which contains (currently nearly the only thing it contains xD , even the README didn't get an update yet...) a task to initialize a new module by initial setups.
Now I have started my work: https://github.com/Jenkler/nodebb-plugin-postlink
Now it works! @psychobunny plz check it out and do a code review if you have the time
