It also doesn't work unless users are using the enhanced editor, anyway to get it to work with the standard?

is there a similar add-on anywhere else that works properly.

Great, if you now manage that the Thread Field Titles are phrased so that we can use it on multilanguage boards it's perfect ^^

This may have already been answered, but I have installed this addon with out issue... My issue is, is that I setup fields for a specific forum (29) and setup the questions to be only on 29... But when I attempt to create a thread on any other forum, it says that I haven't filled out all the required custom fields, but when I scroll down on the thread creation for a forum OUTSIDE of 29, there are no custom fields present (as there should be)

My issue is, how come its asking me to fill out 'required' fields for a forum that doesn't have any custom fields attached to it?

(Note: I am using vB 3.6.x & downloaded the 3.6.x files)

I got this working for 4.2.1. Thank you for this plugin. It saved many hours.

I'm no vBulletin programmer but I can hack my way through. Here were my steps:

Upload the contents of the 4.X.X zip file to admin, includes, pics directories.

Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product

Browse to product-custom_thread_forms.xml

Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Plugin Manager -> Disable Template Changes - newthread_form_complete

Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Custom Thread Field Settings -> Edit -> Enable Custom Thread Fields -> Yes

Admin CP -> Settigns -> Options -> Custom Thread Field Settings -> Edit -> Template Changes -> No

Admin CP -> Forums & Moderators -> Threads Field Manager -> Add a new Field

Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Search in Templates -> Search for newthread -> Select newthread -> Customize

--Find this code in the newthread template--
{vb:raw messagearea}

--Below Add--
<vb:if condition="$custom_form">
{vb:raw custom_form}

-- Optional Steps --

--I like my new field above the text area {vb:raw messagearea} so I did this and used a new blockrow:
<div class="blockrow">
<vb:if condition="$custom_form">
{vb:raw custom_form}

-- I also wanted my field displayed in front of the message so I updated the plugin:
Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Plugin Manager -> Custom Thread Forms [newthread_post_start - newthread_post_start -> Edit

-- Find
$vbulletin->GPC['message'] = $vbulletin->GPC['message'] . "$break $custom_message";

-- Replace with
$vbulletin->GPC['message'] = $custom_message."<BR><BR>".$vbulletin->GPC['message'];

Thanks again for the plugin! Hope this helps!!

Any idea how to show any of the thread field results in lets say the threadbit template?

So instead of the thread title I want to replace that with the input text.
