Amen! Also, the ability to set the value of those placeholders anywhere in the scripts...

Yes, more Extra fields would certainly be handy.

In fact, if at all possible, the user should be able to name them and specify their data type (like number...), and then be able to do simple calculations with them. He/she would then be able to calculate ratios and totals, and order articles accordingly.

This kind of feature would greatly enhance CD's functionality, letting it be used as a database not only of articles but of products or other items that need some calculus or ordering.

For example, I want to create a database of social opportunities for increasing quality of life. These could be articles with text describing the opportunity (Problem, Solution, Benefits), and ordered on Social Return on Investment, which is a simple (AXB)/C type of calculation ... if the fields and the ability to calculate would be there. This would facilitate decision making enormously.
