Subtitle and Short Title

    Posts have Titles and Excerpts, but I'd love it we had a couple of extra fields besides those:

    Subtitle -- one line description, default is blank. Excerpts are great but having something very short would also be useful.

    Short Title -- for use in navigation menus, when the real title is too long.

    Example:

    Title = '"I didn't buy a ticket to watch commercials"'

    Subtitle = 'Audiences fed up with advertising trailers'

    Short Title = 'Commercials in Theaters'

    Excerpt = 'The increasingly common use of advertising trailers in theaters is one of the main factors driving away audiences, and may be helping to doom large theaters to extinction.'

    This can be pulled off with custom fields now, but adding it to the base system it could be justified.

    Good idea but I think this needs to stay with custom fields and custom themes. It's up to individual themes what they display and once you introduce new fields that not everyone uses it gets very complicated when using logic to determine what to display and what not to.

    I definitely think this is a great idea. You could use the same hidden section idea, but the subtitle definately needs to be directly below the title or out of site out of mind for most of my site managers.
