I'm afraid I still haven't had time to implement the presets.
On your second question, I'm not sure why that wouldn't work. It might be a caching issue. You might try it like this:
Hi Bob, thanks for the info!
I Implemented the solution suggested earlier for the pre-set fields which works quite well. So no worries in this aspect.
Caching: This doesn't change the results. Really strange. Anyway, this a minor problem, so I'll leave it with that.
Another thing that is a bit more annoying is that the dublicate button does not work here. While updating and deleting resources from newspublisher works fine, when I press duplicate I get the same address but the page is completely empty (not even the template is loaded). Any idea why?
I can't replicate this problem with duplicate. Are you sure the current user has resource_duplicate permission?
Also, check the &parents property. It affects the opportunity to duplicate a resource.
On the readonly option, are you sure you have this tag in the appropriate Tpl chunk (e.g., your textarea Tpl chunk)?
Be sure there is a space on each side of it.
