Hi Guillaume,
I’m sorry, but it’s not planned in the near future. Users should not fill the same extra fields on each reply again and again, this will be very annoying. The replies are just replies, they should have only one field for the text.

Sir, I have been asking this question for the addon Topic Custom Fields
I want the topic to be organised with some Topic custom fields. For example a member gives answer . I want that answer to be divided into fields like : outline, Solution, Challenge, Conclusion.
Your description of the Topic Custom Field says wpForo – Topics Custom Fields addon allows you to add and manage custom fields in your forum topics. You can use forums and topics for any type of content. This addon includes all necessary features that need to build a classified listing or a business directory forum. Using the topic form builder you can manage the form structure with rows and columns. Then drag and drop form fields to any place you want. You can create different types of fields like Text, Textarea, WYSIWYG, Phone, Number, URL, HTML, File, Date, Drop-down, Radio, Checkbox. All custom fields can be added in forum search form, so you can search/filter topics by custom fields.”
I am not able to test adding new custom fields in your demo site. As such, If you can clarify this doubt, I will purchase.
Is there any policy where I can return the product if it does not meet my requirements .
Thanks
Suresh

Hi Suresh,
Please note that this is a Topic Custom Field addon, this doesn’t provide custom fields for replies and answers. It allows you to add custom fields to any topic, you’ll see that fields in the topic creation form, but you cannot add custom fields in the reply form. There is no custom fields for replies yet.

i really want to purchase all wp foro addons but it think topic custom fields lacks in fields, autocomplete is really a must have (lets imagine i want user select a games among a huge list and if game does not exist, he could add it in front end) i know bbpress 2.8 will offer such field and bi-relational field.

You can use a drop-down menu or checkbox or radio buttons if you want to suggest pre-defined options in a custom field.
If you need the autocomplete with inserting new data function you can contact to our Addon Customization team and ask them to add it for you. It’ll be added in this addon as well, so it could be improved and updated with future wpForo development. They’ll assess the work and let you know the price. You can contact them via sales[at]gvectors.com.

Hi steven,
There is no autocomplete field in the addon, but there is an attachment field, which will display video attachments with video player and audio attachments with audio player if the format of video and audio files meets the HTML5 player requirements. The multiple select field is also available, just choose the “multiple” option when you create a select field.

Is there any way to give this a very limited trial (2-3 days, just time to see if I can customize it the way I want?) I work with a small senior college, and am feeling some pressure to buy an LMS so teachers can post their syllabus, assignments, etc themselves. It looks like this would do what I want as well as provide the usual sort of forum that students, with different permissions, could use.

I am looking for a searchable database option. I would be a homeopathic repertory. It would need to have fields for symptoms, remedy name, etc. Example, someone might search Head, throbbing, burning, morning and I would want it to pull up any remedy that has all of those things listed under it. Or have the option to list “some” of the things inthat list. Would this plug in be able to be customized for that purpose?

Hi Pamela Schminke,

We don’t follow you well. As far as we understand you’d like to search by the custom fields. If so, it’s possible. All custom fields can be added in the forum search form, so you can search/filter topics by custom fields.

Have a site which has 15 separate forums each is a different subject. (e.g. Birds, Marine Mammals, Renewables/Climate Change, etc.) I would like to have separate tags which apply to each of the different Forums. Now there is getting to be just a huge list of tags that are hard to use and manage. I am wondering if Topic Custom Fields could be used in my situation to each Forum Subject have a separate set of tags?? Or if there is some other plugin or widget that achieve keeping tags specifically to each different Forum? Thank you for any assistance.
