I wonder if it's possible to preselect options when creating new post via url. My goal is to bookmark links when i want to create post with specific options such as category and not to have to select them each time.

You want to pass the options to be selected via url? – Rutwick Gangurde Aug 23 '12 at 9:00
Yes ! One click in my bookmarks and don't have to worry about which template, category etc... – Seb Aug 26 '12 at 21:07

I think this Custom Field Template plugin will help you. Plugin site. Don't worry about Chinese screenshots. If you set at least one Custom Field Template for one category, when creating post and check that category additional options will appear.
