Hi,

I've managed to redirect from a (search and)  list-form to a front-end content-form to add children of specific content-type by passing parent-ID of Parent (from list). It works fine until I click "save and new" in the child-form. The item(child) is saved but the new empty form doesn't contain the parent_ID anymore because the URL-parameter (which was initially passed through by the list-form) is gone. Is there a way to keep or get the parent-ID in the URL-variable while using the "save-and-new"-button? I do not see such a possibility in the button-config.

Thanks in advance

Mark

Hi,

save&new does not pass any values. You could try using button Free and replicate url for new article + pass necessary variables from parent using Custom variables feature.

Thanks Klass for your response. But does Button free save content? Nothing get saved when I "submit" button free?

Thanks

Well, I've tried to turn this around and spend one day trying all possible combinations with button-free as well as save-and-new (submit)....

Maybe it's my lack of knowledge but I can't get it working the Seblods-way. With the submit-button option it's impossible to pass URL-parameters and with the button-free option it's possible to send parameters but nothing gets saved.

I guess I have to use "save and close" then control is returned to the list and then I've to hit again "add new child"-button... This is a pity because it's taking extra time (clicks). 

If anyone has any idea how to stay in the "child-form" to add multiple children after each other without losing the parent-ID thery're welcome (:-

For now I'll try my luck figuring out session-variables although there is not information on the internet about this in Seblod.

Keep you posted.

Regards

Have you tried Save&redirect  - on the second thought it should be a better option, you can include custom variables in redirect and choose menu leading to this form for redirect.

Hi Klas, thans for responding.

I've managed to fix this with the help of session-variables and URL-extension (live value of current URL) together with codepack-etension (before-render and after-store).

My solution below:

In search-list-form (parent form):

1. Add icon field to redirect to child-content-form (menu-item) to add child-content

In child-content-add-form:

1. Create field (codepack - beforerender).

2. Add session-code (see below) to store URL of first add-content-form (this one contains parent-id in URL).

3. add free field containing URL of current add-form (set bij live-value: URL, custom (all checkboxes on)

4. Add after-store-code (codepack) field to set target-URL ($config['url’], which was saved on before-render), see code below.

Now you can use “save & new” as many times as you like without returning to the main search-list-form after every (child) save. The parentID is provided by replicating the first child-content-form-URL which is stored in session-var and restored in config-URL every time after child-save.

On adding last child-record user can use “save and close-button” so control will be returned to parent search-list-form.

//======================

// before render code

//======================

//

// initialising stuff

//

define( '_JEXEC', 1 );

define( 'JPATH_BASE', realpath(dirname(__FILE__).'/../..' ));

require_once ( JPATH_BASE. '/includes/defines.php' );

require_once ( JPATH_BASE. '/includes/framework.php' );

$mainframe = JFactory::getApplication('site');

$mainframe->initialise();

$session = JFactory::getSession();

//

// get parentID from field-value (this value is passed by URL-parameter from parent search form)

//

$myparentID = $fields['td_parentid']->value;

//

// save current (first) content-add-form-URL (because this one is working alright)

$myURI = $fields['sysdisplayfield']->value;

//

// second or n-th time (myparentID = empty)? use saved session-URL

// first time? (myparentID NOT empty)? save current URL in session-URL

//

if(empty($myparentID)){

echo "empty....using myURI" . $session->get('myURI');

$fields['td_parentid']->value = $session->get('trParentID');

} else {

$session->set('trParentID', $myparentID);

$session->set('myURI', $myURI);

echo "td_parentid: " . $myparentID;

}

//

//======================

// after save code

//======================

//

// get URL from session en store in config-URL to show add-content-form with correct parent-ID

//

$session = JFactory::getSession();

$config['url'] = $session->get('myURI');
