Question: Define New Template Tags

the Template tags are very nice, but I am looking to add "BYLINE' to each article as the client newsletter features news items from a magazine. Can I add in custom template tags so that, when editing description, I can have an additional "byline" field, as in, in addition to TITLE and DESCRIPTION?

That isn't possible right now, you are limited to just the title and description tag and only one instance of each in a repeater. We're always tracking feedback though and I'll be sure to mark you as a request for adding in a new template tag.

An attendant question. Do users have access to the files serving the templates or is it native to c/send? Just thinking if I could install a version on my own server I could add template tags to my heart's delight ... :)

Hi absentee,

Unfortunately it is native. I don't think there'd be a way you could add your own ;)

Hi, I'd like to put my vote in for extra tags. In my (clients) case, a smaller title above the main title would be handy to clarify what kind of category a newsletter item falls in (bit like "Interviews & Buzz", "News & Updates" in the CM-blog). But instead of creating a tag "byline" for absentee, a tag "smallertitle" for me and a tag "whateverthenextcmuserthinksof" for the next CM-user that joins this request, why not create a couple of generic tags everybody can fool around with? And while we're at it... multiple images per item maybe?

I second this request. In fact, it's a show-stopper for two of my clients right now. They use title, subtitle, summary and description. Ideally, one could just define any custom area one wants.

PLEASE: custom content insert tags!
