Thread Stencil v. 1.3
First off I want to say this is my first vB hack ever, well actually the 2nd but the first one is not released. Please be kind, constructive criticism is welcome!

I hope this hack does not already exist, I searched but couldn't find anything similiar.

This hack was requested by rasun here http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=130137

Enough with the bs, what does this hack do?
This hack will let you predefine a Title and Message that will show up when a user creates a new thread. It will just fill the boxes so the users can edit them. In the Forum Manager you can edit each forums own stencil.
It can be used for making interviews, application forms etc. See screenshots for example of an interview.

Misc
Tested on vB 3.5.4 & vB 3.6.0

Version Updates
Version 1.2
* Set custom stencils in the forums of your choice.
* Enable / Disable stencils in each forum.
OBS! - This new version makes changes to the database, you might want to make a backup just to be safe.

Version 1.3
* New tags added for output of username & date, [username] & [date]. See screenshots for more info.

Installation instructions
Import the product .xml. Go into Forum Manager and choose "Edit Forum" where you want to apply a new stencil. Scroll to the bottom and you can find the settings there.

Upgrade instructions
Uninstall the old product from Product Manager. Install the new product .xml.

Please click install if you're using this hack!

Thanks for the update.

This is actually really really good and would be a benefit to vbulletin as standard code, but none the less, I'm glad I will now have it installed on my site.

Thanks.

Hi there, this is really nice!

Would it be possible to add stencils to new events? I have the eventforums hack installed and adding a new thread in a linked forum shows no stencil.

i absolutely appreciate this hack... i will be adding the extras you put in too... one of my friends has a aimoo board and she literally types her questions for each interview... while this is great and custom for each poet, ----the kid has no time to do that... this hack answered my need.. and while i wont be copying my friend's interview program, this is highly useful for my new members who will be asked a series of questions to break the ice...

so.... thanks a whole bunch!!

i noticed you updated the hack after a few people were talking about making the text grayed out and then disappear when someone clicks in the box...

is that feature default now?...if so I don't want to install this. If it's an option (which it should be )...that would be great.

My plans for this involve two forums...one would require the poster just to edit the info that's already there, while the other could use the 'disappear on click' form...

is there a setting in the forum ACP to pick which you want?...if not, could you add that please?

I have no plans of updating this hack at the moment, sorry.

No it isn't. And I thought you already figured since you had marked this mod as "Install".

I haven't personally tested but it should work. The guy above installed it on version 3.6.4 and hasn't complained yet.

Not bad at all for a "first hack".
