Default REQ. a seperate 'byline' (aka thread description) plugin

I've always loved the thread description option that Invision Powerboard (IPB) offers (with a default installation). One of the things I (and my moderators) miss most with vBulletin.

Your amazin GARS is a fantastic addition to our website. While filling in the info for the byline, I wondered if it would be possible to add this option to vbulletin as a seperate plugin.

It should change the overal showthread layout, just add an extra line under the topictitle (if someone has filled in the byline).

It would be fantastic if this feature could also be enabled/disabled per forum.

That is pretty easy to manage.
You need to create a new type and change the templates. After that you can add byline with a if condition to threadbit. That will solve your problem

It's a relief that this will be easy to make. But the problem is that I'm no coder and only have the abilities to edit some templates here and there.

Doing so would also mean each forum was gars enabled (im not sure if thats what you are after).
If so, make a new type and template set (leaving all template names blank). Edit your threadbit template and put $thread[byline] where you want it to appear.
Then set each forum up accordingly.

Thats off the top of my head... but along the lines you want to go
