: Topic Description
: Gives you the ability to post descriptions of your topics that are then shown under the topic title. The description also
shows in the search results and under the topic title in the topic itself.
You can allow only moderators to add descriptions or you can prevent specific groups or users from using them, users
who are prevented from making the decsriptions can also be prevented form seeing them. Specific descriptions can be made
so that only moderators see them (the user giving the description can set this). On top of that you can deny guests from
using this feature. The topic tooltips have the same permission setting.
As mentioned, there are many permission settings here, on top of that in the ACP you can set for the displayed posts to be
fully parsed or not, which can also be set for specific users by the users themselves or by the admin. Each user can turn off
the tooltips if they don't want to be bothered by them.
Through a simple configuration file tooltips are completely configurable from v1.14.0.
Descriptions can have a limited display length meaning they get cropped to the correct length. You can also set it so that
the descriptions are changed into a link to the topic starter's profile or you can set for that to happen just for empty descriptions.
As of version 1.12.0 descriptions can have parsed BBCode, HTML and smileys according to ACP settings.
Versions above 1.13.0 allow you to disable certain BBCodes so they are not displayed at all or just have the tags show. Also post
previews in tooltips can be limited to a certain length.
in v1.15.0 is description postparsing, which can greatly lighten the load on your server and improve the user experience a lot
v1.13.0 introduced the "You have xx characters left" JS counter that is displayed under the description box as soon as you start typing.
v1.14.0 introduced configurable tooltips, meaning you can have different looking tooltips for every template you are running
v1.15.0 introduced description postparsing, which enables users to view the descriptions in full, without lenght and bbcode restrictions (ajaxed)
v1.15.1 introduces the same for tooltips
