Does anyone know how to add a description to the existing field names...

Title: This is used for ...

Description: This is used for ...

Keywords: Separate each keyword, or keyword phrase with a comma... shoes, red shoes,

I could gain hours a week ust by adding this info, and not having to explain it all.

Thank you,
Steve

How about a ReadonlyField?

$fields->addFieldToTab ("Root.Content.ExtraMeta",new ReadonlyField('MetaDescription','This is a description'));

Can you expand a little here. I tried this, but it only removed the description field.???
