Awesome! You guys rock, even when the smileys are making me feel dumb 
:-) One more suggestion for the ignorant though:

Modify the $c->form() parameters so that XXX module knows which fields 
to display when it is called by the template. Also don't forget to copy 
the templates into the template root.

Or at least something along those lines. Oh and count me another native 
English speaker that is happy to help out.
