YES! Finally. I need this soooo bad!
Thanks rawk!
I am really happy about this release because it's actually a very clean plugin. One of my best as far as coding goes. It's extremely minimal and yet very functional plus I did it in just a few hours.
This is amazing Wink Thank you Labrocca

Always my goal. I have a pet peeve about sloppy authors that release plugins that don't work as advertised. I spent a lot of time trying to get it right the first time. I am not always successful but I always quickly fix whatever is found wrong.

Thanks for the comments.
That's sweet. For some reason this plugin reminds me of Digitalpoint, I don't know why though.
Because DP has something similar running for thread titles. I know that VB plugin. Also sites like Namepros uses something similar. It's fairly common in BST or Support type forums where certain information is required and a template of sorts is there by default.

Here is the Mybb equivelant. Smile
*prays for this to be a future MyBB feature*

Tongue Well it probably won't be this would help so much in the support forums.
