Overview:

This product allows your users to add descriptions to threads which display below the title on various pages. You may define CSS to be applied to the description, the maximum length allowed for the thread descriptions (1-256 characters), and if you want an icon to be displayed to the left of the thread descriptions you may enter the path to the image file. You may also enter any CSS you want to be associated with the icon.

When a user posts a new thread, they will find a text field below the thread title field into which they may enter a description for the thread.

To change a thread's description, one may either edit the first post of a thread, or edit the thread via the "Administrative" drop-down menu in the "Thread Controls" element on the Show Thread page.

A thread's description will show up on the forum home page, the forum display pages, the search results pages and the show thread pages.
