Nope. None of them work.

And it is set in your custom fields setting to parse bbcode?

Yup this custom fields can make wonders :-)

I am seting up directory with this, though have a few questions:

1. I am going to use customized forumdisplay and wish to use different navbar and footer. I tried to change $footer to $footer2 (that I customized), but it seems it can not read this variable. What should I do to make it work?

2. (EDIT: I already figured out )

3. It is great to use something like this $thread[gars8] in forumdisplay template. However I can only use value from this variable, but how to use title of this? In my case it is checkbox. Value of the checkbox is too long to be displayed in forumdisplay tmp, so some acronym would be far better. Is there a solution to this or some IF $thread[gars8] VALUE=XY THEN PRINT X workaround? I am not a coder .-)

4. Again checkbox custom fields. How do I line up the value of 5 checkbox in module so that each checkbox value occupy one row?
curent output in modulebox:
coder, php
developer, css designer, photoshop
designer, corel designer

Desired output in modulebox:
php developer
css designer
photoshop designer
corel desginer

... so what it should do - it will break line after each item and not seprate them with commas

1- Im not too sure about this. I would assume that replacing $footer with the HTML you want would suffice.

2- Excellent

3- <if condition="$thread[gars8]=='x'">Hi mom!</if>

4- Some custom fields (i.e. multi checkboxes) do not display in an easy to use fashion (like your example). I suppose I can look at adding a hook so you can format them how you would like. Shouldnt be too hard.
