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!

Great idea. This'd definitely come in handy on forums that use threads to create order forms or requests. Excellent idea, very useful.

One suggestion for a future update: create a stencil for each forum using forum permissions.

Neat product. Suggestion: Have an option to make the stencil text gray and then clear onclick. This would work much better for my (and others'?) purposes.

Thanks. How would I do this for the body as well as the title? Also, can it appear gray when the template is there only?

A nice alteration would be to instead have this a per forum option in the Edit Forum section so you could have different options for each forum.

Thanks for the mod.

cool. however I have a request

I want to have a feature to insert their username into the thread.

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

Also here, thank you for fulfilling my request.

This addon is awsome, really needed something like that!

:banana:

EDIT: Like some other people here already mentioned....it would be great if you could create different stencils for different forums, instead of a "global" one...but anyway nice addon, will use it.

I'm glad you like it. I'm going to meet your requests about having it on a forum per forum basis. I'll add it maybe today, if I have the time!

Would it be possible to have the possibility of having a poll added too? I have a review section in my site and as such there's a poll that goes with it, so the option to post the poll at the same time would be excellent too.
