A few weeks ago I made a quick plugin to show the forum rules as part of newthread.php and newreply.php above the form input. Worked great. But I was noticing today it's also showing below the input area. A quick look in the admincp template "newreply" and "newthread" shows that {$forumrules} is part of both.


Well that's weird because I didn't put that there. Next I was like oh wtf this is part of MyBB. I'll deactivate my plugin and just move the {$forumrules} to above the input form.

Guess what..did nothing. More looking around. Appears MyBB added the template variable but didn't add it to newthread.php or newreply.php. An oversight I assume. A half-done feature.

Please fix. Would be nice to see them working. I know it's possible MyBB might simply remove it from template but worth a shot. At some point the intention was there.

If you look in newreply.php you see "forumrules" in $templatelist.

If you need me to write the code for possible fix LMK. Be happy to take the extra time to lock this down. Should be just a few lines. If you do make the changes I'll be sure to quality test.
