Question from a new comer to both PHP and modifying xenForo....

Hello guys,

I have decided to try my hand at modifying xenForo - but I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.

I am looking to extend the posting functions of a certain node on my forum. What I mean by that, is if the node id is 21 then I need to run a custom query to grab certain other information from a new table. Also, if a user is submitting a thread into node 21 I want to display a different submission form.

If someone could possibly point me to the right place in the code, that would be a major help to me.

Thanks!

I'm not sure on your skill level, but maybe start with the following:

http://xenforo.com/help/nodes/

Next, look at this add-on to see if you can get some ideas:

Finally, see if this paid add-on might be helpful:

Thanks for the reply.

Just out of interest, would you be able to quickly show me how to insert to an additional table on thread creation?

I understand this is a bit of a big ask, but I am keen to learn how to do things for myself. :)

What kind of table?
