Hello,

I would like to have infos how I can install something important for me.

I would like having a little form wich I can fill out and when I click on Submit it will be filled out sent to a defined Topic.

How I do or install that in MyBB

Thank you.

Any answer?
So to get this right, you have a forum which has numerous topics.

Now you'd like to have a form which you fill out and in that form you select one of these topics. When you click submit it adds a reply to that specific thread you selected in the form?

If not, can you elaborate on your requirements please Smile?
I would like having it so...


You have a Form (for example for a application for a membership or something) and you fill this form out. When you click on Submit it will be posted automatically to a specified forum as a normal post. But in this case you filled a form out.
Sounds like you need the XThreads plugin.

XThreads is an extremely detailed plugin and quite complicated for new users of MyBB to understand. I suggest you post a thread on their support forum and hopefully someone there will be able to help you get it set up.

Good luck!
Ah so that xThread is for a form where I click submit and it post it automatically to a specified forum? Yes?

It allows you to create forms in certain forums, so for example if you have a "Staff Applications" forum you can create it so that when the user tries to create a new thread instead of the default thread creation options you can add extra textboxes etc...

(EDIT: LOOK AT THE SCREENSHOTS BELOW THE FIRST POST)

This is a very good tutorial but might be a bit too advanced for a beginner.

You should be able to get a good idea of what XThreads is capable of however.
Well that isn't what I want. I already understood what that plugin does.

What I mean is a bit differend.
A Custom Page where a huge form is wich you can fill out (Yes for a thread but for inside of "making a new thread)

Hard to explain...
