Hi all,

I'm managing a SilverStripe site, and we currently use pretty much the same metadata (description and keywords) for all pages, with some minor tweaks for specific pages. Unfortunately, every time I need to create a new page, I need to copy the generic description and keywords between an old page and the new page - this is a pain, and although so far I've remembered each time, I'm worried i will forget. What I would ideally like is for these fields to be populated with some default values, then I can go in and modify them if needed, otherwise I can just leave them as is.

Best regards
