Hi,

Is this easy to achieve?

Id like to add the topic's author and date posted before the first post (where the details appear).

Thanks,

Loz

The first post already contains the same information - so I'm not quite sure what to duplicate if for basically in the nearest place?
Anyway you may try to paste {$topicData[3]} (topic poster's name) and {$topicData[8]} (for topic's creation time) in the template, it may work. Also you may use a little code in bb_plugins.php to operate these values, coding a simple add-on by the if($action=='vthread')... condition.

Hi Paul,

My layout is very different from the standard - I have the post's title at the very top in a big font and would like to have the author's name under it (just like you see on news articles, for example).

Thanks for your help - I'll try this later today and think can figure out the bb_plugins'php bit :)
