I do a
$form['title']['#type'] = 'value';
$form['title']['#value'] = 'THIS_MIGHT_VALIDATE';
But that is neither clean nor secure. what if the hypothetical
title_must_contain_three_words.module hops in ?
Nor will the autogenerated title pass by any validation anymore.
This is the current route a node takes (very rough)
new/existing node -> POST -> hook_validate -> Store -> hook_insert()
I would love to see, use or have:
new/existing node -> POST -> *DO STUFF* -> hook_validate -> Store ->
As you can see, _insert and nodeapi('insert') is too late anyway. (I need to
verify, it was like this all along 4.7 to head a few months ago. But even itf
it hooks in earlier, I cannot use it)
So let me take a step back, rephrase, and ask my question again:
I am looking for the following: I want to generate the title of a node from
content in that node.
I currently manage to do this, by abusing validation, by adding dummy text in
I am looking for a SOLID and clean way to achieve this.
So: Is form api able to help me with this? In some undocumented hook that I
missed? Or do we simply lack the hooks to do this, and should I continue on
my hackish and dirty (but working) road?
