Default Issue with editing posts - custom fields

I am using GARS in a forum with a custom postbit. The only GARS options used in this particular forum are a few required custom fields and a term set.
http://www.atcards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3550
The thread author needs to update(edit) the thread first post almost every day.
This works just fine.

My problem is the first post preview that tops each additional page. The post with "Click here to read the entire ______" part.
My users seem to contantly try edit the thread by editing this preview post, instead of going back to the first post in the thread to make edits.

These posts do not contain the custom fields, and when they go to edit either quick or advanced edit they are promted to re-enter the custom fields.

I am using "postbit" for the comments template so it looks like the rest of the forum, and I assume this is all or part of my problem.

I would like to do one of the following:
  • Disable this preview page from being shown on all additional pages.
  • Make the first post show up on all pages as is. (with the custom fields)
  • Or make a new template designed to look like "postbit" without the AJAX quick edit used for this preview page (if possible).

What would you recomend, and is the new template option possible? I am not sure how this post preview fuction is controlled, or if this would even fix my issue.

Thanks.

Ahh...that was it.
I didn't need to revert it. I needed to add that template at "First post preview on additional pages"

Thanks.
