Calculations/Evaluations are not part of the lightweight template engine NodeBB uses. (AFAIK)
I guess the best would be to intercept the filter:post.getPosts hook and add your custom index values...
Im currently using the bellow but it seems that .url is not verry reliable as even if the user dosent set it correctly the site just works anyway. Does Nodebb have a function somewhere i cant find?
var siteConfig = module.parent.require('../config.json'); siteConfig.url
You can use the
nconf dependency (to be listed as
var nconf = require("nconf"); nconf.get("url")
However, it's just as unreliable; There is no current solution to save the user from mis-configured
url property. I get issues/questions regarding this on a regular basis.
@frissdiegurke im new to node in general is their not something in express or node have something similar to PHP's
@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.
nconf solution is the easiest.
