    Custom Discussion / Thread Metadata

       

      Hello,

       

       

      We need to have custom metadata tied to each new discussion / thread that is created. In more detail, for every new discussion that is created, a user needs to be able to 1.) enter in some generic text into a text field 2.) create a sticky post (probably much like an 'Announcement') 3.) two date fields  and 4.) select a value from a drop-down selection box. This metadata should then be displayed at the top of that specific discussion / thread.

       

       

      Also, we need the ability to be able to edit the values these fields, and also be able to query the database for their values (with the exception of the sticky post / 'announcement').

       

       

      Being a newbie to the Clearspace customization world, any direction or insight that could be provided is greatly appreciated.

       

       

      Thanks!
