**Before Making An Add on **
Please consult with me before making an add on to this hack. As it is my work and such, the add ons that you are trying to make for it may be in the next release and/or premium version.

What does this do?
This hack allows you to add more fields to your threads besides just the title and message. This is extremely usefull in order to specify certain things in a thread in a way that people are more aware of it and such. There are several types of fields you can add and several features for the hack.

What features does this hack provide?

What does this hack require?
Template Edits: 4
Products Imported: 1

5 Easy Steps
Step 1. Import the following product: product-extra_threadfields.xml
Step 2. Upload the files in the upload folder.
Step 3. Do the edits located below
Step 4. Edit the newly added options in admincp as you please
Step 5. Enjoy the hack.

F.A.Q
Q. How do i get extra fields to show in the "edit post" page?
A. This is only available in the premium version.

Q. If i do not want the fields to be shown automatically, can i do it manually?
A. You can manually show fields in threads or posts by using $thread[fieldx] in the postbit or showthread template. Replace x with the ID of the field you want. To find the ID of the field go to admincp >> Extra Threadfields >> Extra Fields Manager, and hover over a field. The number after fieldid = will be the id of your field.

Q. I updated all of the options, i installed it perfectly, i did all edits, and still the options are not showing when i go to add a new thread. What do i do?
A. It is believed that you have a hack interfering with this one. Take away the edit that you did for putting $extrathreadfields inside the newthread template, and do this instead:

Search for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Add below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Enjoy the hack.

I'll definitely take a look into this, looks tastey. Not sure if I'll need it as well as GARS though. I'll soon find out!

can this be used for the staff only?
in order to mark the thread as "moderated" so that other staff members don't have to check it and this will save some time...
can it work that way?

I will hopefully look into this. Perhaps i will make it so that you have the option of making fields have permissions so that only certain usergroups can access them.

a Extra Field in the Extra Threadfiels menu, but cant for the
life of me find the other part to it
What exactly do you mean?

Add a field, make sure you include the ID in which you want the forum to be in, and then make a new thread in that forum and you will see the extra fields appear. This is assuming you did the template edits and installed correctly ;].

Do you have "automatically show fields in threads" enabled? Also, did you fill out the extra field?

PS: Make sure you use the correct forumid of the forum(s) you want it to show on, seperated by a comma.
