Hi there, sorry if this is a really basic question...

Is there a way to add a new field in 'Start new topic?' when someone makes a new post. Currently you have

Message icon:
B I U S ... etc etc followed by various smilies... supportsupportsupportsupportsupportsupport...

I want to create a reviews section so really want to add the following new field:

Rating: [drop down list 'Positive,' 'Negative,' 'Neutral']

Furthermore, I'd want this review categorization appearing next to each post title so people can easily navigate to what they need. Something like this:

Positive - Nice experience using Createaforum...
Negative -Terrible experience of Duck Duck Go...
Positive - Great experience of Createaforum Support Forums
Neutral - Not such a good shopping online at Walmart

and so on...

I do not expect anyone here to give me some sort of in-depth tutorial but I do want to be pointed in the right direction...

So can this be done with the existing tools in Admin panel?

Would I need special code to construct something like this and which one? Java? HTML? CSS?

Finally where would this code have to be executed? Is there some kind of notepad on here?

Many thanks from a newbie!

Currently we do not have a system to create topic prefixes that is something I can look into to see if it is feasible to do.
