How can I make it so when I post in a defined catagory, it will not have a discussion title box. Only a body box,will appear. But when it's posted, the title is the username of the poster.
Please help.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    So this will hide the title box but will post with the title of the username. Also, where does this go? Index.php?

    Are you embedded or self hosted ?

    If self hosted throw it in some script tags and plonk it in the bottom of default.master.php

    So how would I get it to just do this on one catagory?

    i use this code in a plugin....

      $Url = $Sender->SelfUrl;
                if(eregi('discussion/(.*)', $Url)) {
                    if( $Sender->CategoryID <> 8 &&  $Sender->CategoryID <> 29 &&  $Sender->CategoryID <> 38 &&  $Sender->CategoryID <> 40){
                        
                    $Show = true;
                    }
                //  break;
                }

    It's a custom plugin that i use to insert ad code into various pages in specific places. I do not want to place advertising on certain categories or based on other rules.

    it's not available for download because it isn't really something plug and play. all of the rules and actions are modified in the plugin itself, not through settings. so i won't be releasing it.

    but the code above can be used in any plugin to determine whether you are on a discussion page and if you are what category you are in.

    of course you would need to tweak it for your application. I think you will need to override the add discussion controller to get the behavior you are seeking. in which case im pretty sure the $sender would just be replaced by $this.

    Sorry i can't go into any more detail, since i would have to actually try to write the code to figure out any more.

    There's lots of info on http://vanillawiki.homebrewforums.net that could help you start digging in to this one, and of course feel free to ask questions.
