I am converting my old vBulletin 3.6 Forum to vBulletin 4 Suite. And, I need help displaying the thread preview underneath the author info on the main list of threads.

Attached is a screen print of my current website, to show you what i mean. Notice how for each post it shows the thread title, Written By field, and then a short preview of the thread without having to hover or click the thread link.

I am trying to do this with vBulletin 4.0. But, the code appears to be entirely different.

Below is a forum thread from 2006, where someone helped a group of us with what changes to make to this code. Could someone help me with this? Im sure others will benefit from this too.

The new code you need to be using is:

So where ever you had $thread[preview] before, replace it with {vb:raw thread.preview}

Its up to you to test and figure out where to put it ;)
