Setting defaults in a structure

I have a structure field on a new child page, and I want to default it to a structure defined in a parent page. I have not tried to use a hook, and am hoping that I can just for a kirby query in the child blueprint that would default this child structure to its parents structure.

Is there a way to do this?

No, that’s not possible I think. You have to either use a hook or set the value of the field in a page models create()` method.

Thanks. I never considered the page model idea. I will consider both options.

Example page model: Hook page.create:before, how to edit user input?
