Fixed (forum)/create-thread doesn't work as expected

Affected version
2.1

Hello,


we used a predefined link of this structure

Code:
(forum)/create-thread/?title=predefined_title
to help users to answer with special information in the title. It seems that with 2.0 or 2.1 this is broken, as the parameter passed by title= is dropped with the create-thread link. Is there any workaround?

We'll add this back (I think it was overlooked in 2.0) but worth noting that although the original link will work, it will perform a redirect to:
Code:
(forum)/post-thread/?title=predefined_title
So worth changing create-thread to post-thread once we've added the pre-defined title stuff back in.

Thank you for reporting this issue. It has now been resolved and we are aiming to include it in a future XF release (2.1.1).

Change log:
When navigating directly to the post-thread page for a forum, attempt to use a predefined title (from the title URL param) if it is available.
Any changes made as a result of this issue being resolved may not be rolled out here until later.
