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!

Very nice hack, suggestions.

Per forum basis (as already been suggested ) and the ability to set per forum to have the predefined text stay on click or not.

Would be useful if you want to give extra information in the message field of how and what is allowed to post. When you click in the message field the text is gone and you can write your message.

Same what voteforbird suggested I believe

Ehm, polls are created on another page. I will see if I can do something about it, might be a good feature for a new version.

eg. I would set up a thread title like this [username]'s mod application
and then it would come out like: Hornstar6969's mod applicaiton

This would be really good then
Will come in next version.

We don't mean graying the field altogether, but rather just the stencil text. When real text is added, it would be black. Also, it's be neat if the stencil would come up again if no text is added to the field.

Thats what the second edit does. Gray stencil text. When you click, the text clears, and any text typed turns to black. Hopefully the mod author adds it so no template edits are required

Oh, my bad. Also, when I upgraded to 1.2 that stopped working.

Thing about the text coloring stuff, I have never written a line of javascript before. It seems that Ntfu2's piece of code worked there, I may try to implement.

Yepp, it's because this variable does no longer exist

Instead you should use this line if you want it to work like before
