Custom fields text in snippet part

    Any chance to include Custom fields data (text data) into first tab area, so snippet will contain custom field data too.

    Also any chance to put placeholder in custom fields and tab areas.

    Im not sure I understand what you are asking for. Showcase Item Fields have 9 different locations that they can be placed at, one of which is on Tab 1.

    My english language... :D

    Let me explain this way.
    Automatically created discussion thread only grab a snippet from tab 1.
    I am asking is there a way to snippet contain custom fields too, not just text and attachments from tab 1.


    Custom field 1: aaaaa

    Custom field 2: ttttt

    Custom field 3: uuuuu

    Tab 1:
    aaa + bbb + ccc

    Result in Discussion thread will be only this text:
    aaa + bbb + ccc

    And that is text only from Tab 1, it is snippet.

    So my question is how to manage that automatically created discussion thread contain all custom fields data (text data) + tab 1 data

    So basically you get something like this:

    Custom field 1: aaaaa

    Custom field 2: ttttt

    Custom field 3: uuuuu

    aaa + bbb + ccc

    Also, could we put placeholders in Custom fields and Tabs where text data is expected (like there is placeholder Search... in search bar).

    And just one another question, because of xenforo attachment nature behaviour, attachments in snippet can not be visible (they are just links), or there is a way to show attachment in snippet too?

    An Associated Discussion thread displays the HEADER of a Showcase Item. Everything that is set to display in the Showcase Item Header will display on the Header of the Associated Discussion Thread (this includes, custom fields that are set to display in the HEADER).

    The CONTENT of TAB 1 does NOT display in the header of an associated discussion thread. Only the DESCRIPTION (if set to display in the Showcase Item Header) does.

    The first POST of the discussion thread contains a SNIPPET of the message field from Tab 1.

    I am NOT turning the Header of a Discussion Thread into displaying the ENTIRE SHOWCASE ITEM. That isn't going to happen. They need to view the Showcase Item itself if you want them to see content in Tabs 1-5

    That is the solution! Thanks @Bob
