Hi there!

I'm pretty new to JForum. Basically I need to put up a forum with few tweaks in it. I have been able to get the forum up and running, but I want to modify the "New Topic" page.

* I want to rename the "Subject" heading to some other text (user input type would still remain as text field & it would still reflect as the subject in topic lists under that forum).
* I want to add 4 more Text-fields other than Subject, but they should reflect in the post body just before the text, user added in the body. (I assume this would require a little coding).

All I need to know is which page to modify. For the additional 4 text fields I assume some changes will be needed to done in the db too so that they automatically reflect in the post body. But before I do anything else, I have to find out which page to modify to atleast see the interface/frontend.

Thanks in advance,
Blizzy
