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

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.

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!

Not this particular mod. But if you know how to, you can point a Scheduled Task to a small php script that creates the thread(s).

Just for clarity, can this be used in two of the forums and not in the rest? Thanks

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 am also using eventforums (with RSVP) and am curious if anyone has gotten this to work with that?

I did install this mod. It's very nice. However, I have to set it for a specific forum. Is there any way to apply for all sub forums if I set it for their parent forum?
