Add-On Type(s)



Allows you to predefine default content for a custom field. Different field content can be set on a per weblog basis.

This is another response to a forum request, a quick little extension that allows you to predefine default content for a custom field. You can set some static text for a custom weblog field (or fields) and when you open the publish page to write a new article, the text will already be sitting there in the specified fields. Different content, in different fields, can be set on a per weblog basis.
