    Tried googling it, mostly talks about user profile fields and some mod you can purchase that mostly has people complaining anyway..

    Is there a way to add extra fields when a user makes a new thread?

    Eg it's for an automotive niche forum.. Instead of the user entering a title, I want them to choose from pulldowns for vehicle year, vehicle make, vehicle model, and then in the showthreads instead of showing a link for the thread title, I want it to show "Sen's 2009 Ford Focus" or whatever..

    If pulldowns are too much of a hassle, even fields for them to fill out would be ok.

    I've seen it in a few places, including here: http://www.boostcruising.com/forums/index.php?showforum=9

    But that's IPB and custom made.

    Have you posted at vb.org? I imagine there is probably a way to make this happen using thread prefixes but have no clue how you would set it up to let you select multiple prefixes on one thread.

    Sounds like a cheap job though if you don't figure it out yourself. Put out a request at vb.org and just hustle them down I get most of the small things like what you are mentioning done for $35 or less most of the time.
