Very good Andy! I would love to have these inputs available right under thread upon creation rather than having to edit later. I would also love a feature to be able to create custom metas for nodes. Great work as usual!
Very useful and convenient!
Thanks.
I like that one. Thank you
Exactly what I needed to modify some old threads SERPs. I have a number of threads where first 160 characters of a first post is not representative of the thread content. Now I will be able to change the title and description manually, to better present the thread in Google's results.

With a special permission you can actually see meta tags displayed in content, which helps a lot.
