On this forum when you add a topic you automatically get the 2 templates at the top ^^. The forumheader one and the other which explains that you need to sign your signature at the bottom etc. I want that to happen when someone adds a topic to my forum.

So how do I get them both to come up automatically whne someone adds a topic to my forum? Please help, I am really struggling! (Also please don't suggest the Help:Wiki style forums page as I do not understand step 3 which is what I am asking).

Isn't that complicated. Create {{Forumheader}} template, then a sub template (like {{Forumheader/General_Discussion}}. While you add the create box to the Forum page, add;
<createbox>
prefix=Forum:
preload=Template:Forumheader/General_Discussion
buttonlabel=Add new topic
</createbox>

Any template or info mentioned along with "preload" is added to the new page.. --70px-SigN1v.png (30px-SigT1v.png35px-SigG1v.png) 05:22, July 24, 2012 (UTC)
