  • Can a predefined entry form be used in a forum?

    I would like to create a form that when a user creates a new thread in a particular forum, a canned form would pop up and predefined fields are presented for user population. This way, I get consistent look and feel for all of the forum entries. Subsequent replies to such a form would be free form. Is such a thing possible? Guessing not, but it never hurts to ask! Thanks.

    I'm not sure what kind of form you are talking about.

    To do anything like that for a specific forum would require hacking or making a new style for that forum. I would actually recommend hacking instead of creating a new style since vB2's template system makes an entirely new template set for just one changed template.

    For hacking requests you can post on
