Up till now custom forum fields is not something I've really taken advantage of, or even used much, so I'm kind of starting with a blank slate in regards to doing my due diligence in determining how to proceed for a new project.
  1. Does anybody have any public examples of XF forums taking advantage of custom forum fields that is viewable to guests?
  2. What types of data are you guys/gals capturing in your custom forum fields?
  3. Has anybody tried capturing an address in a custom field and then using Google Maps to display that location when the thread is displayed?
  4. Has anybody tried cross-linking a custom forum field to use an XF forum for its possible values? To clarify, if you have a Forum A with a bunch of threads and then in Forum B you have a custom forum field that uses the list of threads in Forum A as the list of possible values for the custom forum field in Forum B?
  5. Does anybody have any public examples of some custom styling of their custom forum fields?
Thanks

Do you mean Thread Fields?
Well, the only other option would be custom profile fields and custom thread fields can only be used with forums so..... yes.
Are you guys doing anything with the display of them (outside of the stock display location) or any kind of custom widgets or code to do anything with the choices selected? Doing anything like custom validators on the fields or a PHP callback?
