    @julian said in Why isn't email required anymore?:

    There were two issues with this:

    Incorrect emails would bounce, causing reputation issues over time

    I run my own mail server and my forums are "small" so the bounces land in my queue/spool and are not a real problem. I see how this could cause significant grief otherwise, especially on larger forums.

    I also use IsTempMail, which seems pretty effective on its intended targets. I wonder how many others do? Been a while since I played with those knobs but iirc, it was pretty painless to set up.

    NodeBB prior to this change would allow any email to be entered, even other peoples' emails. A lot of sites do this, and it's not necessarily something we should guard against, but I personally find it really annoying when someone uses my email to sign up for random sites.

    Hard nut to crack, this one. Maybe add a disclaimer to the welcome message along the lines of "Somebody, hopefully you, used this email address to register for our community at URL. If this was not you we apologize for the inconvenience."? 🤔

    This is just a little snippet.

    This is about the question How can I add custom data to a post? a small tutorial

    How to add custom data permanently to a post It will be saved into the object:

    You need the following hook:

    { "hook": "filter:post.create", "method": "postCreate" }

    This hook is fired, when a Post is created. So it contains RAW Data.

    A filter:hook like "hook": "filter:post.create" can be edited before beeing proceeded.

    plugin.postCreate = function(data, callback){ // Edit data here callback(null, data); }

    You can access all Data you can work with via the data object.

    All those filter-hooks needs callbacks. The callback contains the modified / added / removed data.

    Whats inside the data object?

    The data object contains two main objects.

    this.post this.data post: { pid: 259, uid: 2, tid: 111, content: '### This is just a little snippet.', timestamp: 1617150411838 }, data: { uuid: '7277s31-6d23-43sa-1284-ad27e42yx879', title: 'How to add custom data to post serverside - in a nutshell', content: '### This is just a little snippet.', thumb: '', cid: '2', tags: [], uid: 2, req: { [...] }, timestamp: 1617150411838, fromQueue: false, tid: 111, ip: '111.123.2123.21', isMain: true } }

    With all the data you can work with. But only this.post is directly effected (lol) to the post Object.
    If you add data here. It will be attached to the post forever and you can access it any time. Even after plugin disable.

    So now add custom data:

    plugin.postCreate = function(data, callback){ // adds data **PERMANENT** to post // before any other procession -> RAW DATA (markdown) //data.post.myData = "directly effected to post you can work with it in next step"; //data.data.myData = "other data for other things I don't know"; var myData = {}; myData.name = "Schmock"; myData.signature = "raz0rn"; // Stick myData to post object data.post.myData = myData; // Debug? // console.log("POST CREATE", data); // finish the process() - passes on modified data callback(null, data); }

    So myData has added to post:

    post: { pid: 259, uid: 2, tid: 111, content: '### This is just a little snippet.', timestamp: 1617150411838, myData: { name = "Schmock", signature = "raz0rn", } }

    The data is stored. Everybody is happy.

    How to add dynamic data before render a post in template It wont be saved to the object. You can use this for dynamic things or logic before rendering the page.:

    You need the following hook:

    { "hook": "filter:topics.addPostData", "method": "addPostData" }

    This hook is fired before engine renders the template.
    It also needs a callback because its a filter-hook.

    plugin.addPostData = function(data, callback){ // modify data temporarily before it gets passed on to next step callback(null, data); }

    Same thing as above. Only the hook is different. And the data we are changing is temporarily.
    Data contains all data we can use for the dynamicness lol: .

    plugin.addPostData = function(data, callback){ // You can work with pre-parsed and already saved data .... // or put in something very flexible without saving to db like jquery-like dynamic etc etc // Debug? // console.log("addPostData?", data) var _posts = data.posts; _posts.forEach(function(post){ if(post.myData){ // add data to post if "myData" is there post.content = "THIS POST HAS MY OWN DATA -> CONTENT IS OVERWRITTEN"; } // this here affects all posts post.user.signature = "Ihr seid alle Schmocks!"; }); // Overwrite data and pass modified data on to the template engine data.posts = _posts; callback(null, data); }

    Now you can work with posts like a boss.

    Thanks and bye

    Important Note:

    Remind, that myData is available via API.


    returns your added data

    "content": "THIS POST AS MY OWN DATA -> CONTENT IS OVERWRITTEN", "myData": { "name": "Schmock", "signature": "raz0rn" }

    Okay, thanks @julian
    This isn't ideal considering future updates, but it is a viable solution.

    Good news, that we don't need to add filter, there is filter for user profile: filter:user.account
    But what is about static template?
