    How to add an additional field in Forum Manager (Forum Edit)?

    Dear everyone,

    I'm trying to add an additional field in Forum Manager (Forum Edit).

    I have edit forum.php and I added a code under the forum discription and it have worked fine .. the field was there but when I click on save I receive this error
    Fatal error: Field sanrss is not defined in $validfields in class vB_DataManager_Forum in Y:\www\vB384\includes\class_dm.php on line 485

    This is the code in forum.php
    PHP Code:
         /* San 2.0 Rss fees */
    print_input_row($vbphrase['sanrss'], 'forum[sanrss]'$forum['sanrss']);
    /* San 2.0 Rss fees */ 
    The point of doing this is to create a variable like: $forum['sanrss']

    If someone can help .. I will appreciate that !!

    Best regards

      And don't edit the code, use a plugin. Take a look at the hook locations forumadmin_edit_form (to add the form variables) and forumdata_start (to add to the $validfields array).

      As Trevster said though, is the place to post regarding modifications.
