How to add a title above the 2nd box in the this discussion form like the 1st box where it has been written 'Write title' ? On which file I have to edit ? I hope that I'm not confusing you with this question.

    Do you mean you want to change the word 'Category'?

    If not, what do you actually want to do?

    the proper way would be to:

    • use the event before bodyinput to insert text. in your themehooks or create a plugin

    ============

    • alternatively you could modify your theme views
    copy
    applications/vanilla/views/post/discussion.php
    
    to
    
    /themes/YOURTHEME/views/post/discussion.php
    
    then modify   /themes/YOURTHEME/views/post/discussion.php
    
    add for e.g. around line 30.
    
    change 
    $this->FireEvent('BeforeBodyInput');
    
    
    to  
    $this->FireEvent('BeforeBodyInput');    
            echo "   MyContents:";

    I think This would be good plugin, though should not be focused on only.

  • @peregrine . And how to add another field in the form ? Along with the 2 fields, I want to add another field in the form named 'conclusion'. So there will be 3 fields named 'Title', 'Description' and 'Conclusion'. How to add the 3rd one ?

    @Maddox

    you would need to write yourself a plugin that adds a field in the database, change the view, etc. etc.

    not for the faint-hearted, unless you have some coding skills.
