I guess the bigger question is. Core code or extension does this option exist and/or is there an extension for it? It really doesnt matter to me how its added to the code; it's a request from my customer and I need to report back to him if this is an option?

Thanks!

Took just about two hours to code up. Wasn't that difficult and I was bored.

Good Rich. :) I already said it was easy.

While your fingertips are still warm care to make a PR against the master branch (3.3) too?
If you still are bored, ofcourse. :)

This topic isn't an extension request. ;)

I'm pretty sure we've basically established that this shouldn't be in the core since it's only useful to a small subset of boards? :|

I personally think so too. Topic descriptions isn't that useful and I wouldn't really use it, I had it earlier in FM but I disliked it and users didn't quite fill it too.

Now that we have an extension I'm not sure why else this needs to be merged to the core.
