Hi,
I know this was asked in the past (about a year or more ago).
Is there any way to have a user fill in both into and body text when submitting a story.
Having users enter a long article and the admins having to edit it is a pita.
Is this something I'll have to hack in myself ?

Am I right in saying that all story moderators get both intro and body boxes. It seems so to me.
So if I'm right, I need to add a bodytext to the storysubmission table and then make sure the calls to/from that table.
My reason for wanting this is that I'm writing a script to accept stories via email (well rather severly modifying one I found on the net). Users need to post from the correct (for their username) email account, include their username, topic, introtext and bodytext in the email. If the format is correct and the username/email address match then the story will be accepted, otherwise it gets dropped into storysubmission - hence I need to have all relevant fields in storysubmission table. I suppose I could drop it into the site as a draft.

As the submission table doesn't have the relevant fields for bodytext, I'm assuming that this feature isn't there.
