    I spent some time here trying to find out the answer, but no luck. So I'm posting this to ask:

    When a user creates a new thread, they can select the new threads Prefix and Title. Right before that I want to add a line that has instructions on which Prefix they should use.

    Anyone know how I can do that???

    Thanks in Advance
    (p.s. I edited the Node for that forum and couldn't really see any way of doing it there. I only want it to show when a New Thread is Created)

    You would need to edit the thread_create template and add the message where appropriate (possibly using a conditional to only show in that forum).

    Alternatively, you can put something in the forum description, but this will normally appear when viewing the forum/hovering the forum title on the list.

    Thanks. I think I know enough to do that.

    But yes, it would be for only a number of forums (not all of them). So, if you don't mind, what would be the variable to select on that provides the forums name? I think I remember seeing that one somewhere here, but now I can't find it again.

    Thanks got everything working exactly the way I want it!!!(y)

    But now I noticed that I need to make a few changes to the Edit Thread pop-up window too. How (or where) do I do that?

    Thanks in Advance

    Ok I've found what I'm interested in, but could you clarify something please?

    Here is a line from the Thread_Edit template:
    <xen:container var="$searchBar.thread"><xen:include template="search_bar_thread_only" /></xen:container>

    I'm not understanding what the difference is between the "container" command and the "set" command. They both look like they create a temp variable.

    Also is there anywhere a "complete" list of xen syntax out there?

    All I could find is:

    n that document it says:
    But if there is a syntax reference guide, I'm not able to find it.

    Thanks in advance
