Strange behaviour of drupal 6 triggers and CCK default values

Leave a comment

One of my drupal experience is to developing an application for a client.So i want to change the default behaviour of drupal after saving the post.I created a trigger which triggers after saving the post to Redirect the admin/content/node Url.But the bad behaviour is starts there.The application dont save default values,but after editing and save it saves the values.So i used a hook_nodeapi to get the values from submitted form and try to save it.But ‘mymodule_nodeapi’ not fires at all.Before that it redirect to the ‘triggered Url’.After many hours of  research, trial,  i found the redirect nature and Un assign the Trigger .Now it works perfectly.

Buti am not 100% sure if it only related to that trigger or some thing related to configuration of trigger.

i will update my further finding and experience of drupal as application frame work in future

For making cck check box field with label and default value,tricky way is there.You must pass ‘Allowed values list:’ as a key value pair separated with ‘|’.



Then it shows proper label when editing the story.
