Again though, haven't worked with evo in years so my knowledge there is very rusty.]]>

I'm developing a website on MODx Evolution where many pages are activities.
The top-level pages using Ditto to display summaries of the miscellaneous activities, which are set in the "introtext" field.

Each activity can have a longer "learn-more" text, which is is set in the content field and should be display on the activity page.
Because most of the "Learn more" texts were not written yet, it would be very useful if MODx had some feature to set a default value for the [*content*] field.
For instance, the content could be set to something like:
<h2>[*pagetitle*]</h2>
[*introtext*]

Exactly like the default value for TVs.

This "Default content" field could typically be integrated to the MODx Configuration section of the manager.

Alternatively, is there some plugin to achieve this ?
Something more straightforward than ManagerManager?

I want as much as possible avoiding to create a new template, because this means twice more work when you change something in a template.]]>
