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.
Things I'd Love to See in the Dashboard
I love the dashboard but would LOVE to see more information available, specially around site performance.
- Post rates, not just view rates and user rates. Thread rates too.
- Stats per day, week, month not just by the hour.
- Selectable time periods, not just one day but week, month, year, etc.
- Stats about IP addresses or ranges, browsers if possible.
Just more info in general.
