Skip +Add dialog possible?

When I click the +Add button on my page section, I get a small popup to put in the title and slug. Is there a way to skip this and go directly to the full page showing all the fields?

Sometimes I start writing and backfill the title later from what I have written, and this popup is a barrier to just start writing into the main text field.

Not out of the box. Kirby needs to create the folder with a text file, so you would need a plugin that auto-creates pages with a random slug and title. Since in most cases you don’t want a random slug (you would have to change it later as well), I wonder if the time saved at page creation is really worth it. Also this would only make sense for pages section where the subpages can only have a single template.

Thanks. That is the case in my project. Indeed there is only one template and the slug does not matter much (It is a list of issues, so the slug should ideally be an automatically generated integer that is increased when a page is generated.)

So I guess for me any slug would be ok, and the title could be empty until specified.

Maybe I’ll send this in as a feature request :slight_smile:

This would in fact be very useful for multiple use cases.

Also have the same question, in my case page title and slug are auto generated, so no need in this step.

There is a plugin for this: https://github.com/steirico/kirby-plugin-custom-add-fields

Hi

I’m the author of kirby-plugin-custom-add-fields. I could implement the feature to skip the add dialog.

But as @texnixe mentioned this would implicate that either

Is there a demand for such a feature? If so, I’m willing to implement it.

I thought that was already possible.

But yes, there is definitely a demand for such a feature. Create a new page with a given template (blueprint option) and a random unique slug.

I think it would be a useful feature, however revealing more fields in the “Add” dialog might actually solve some of the use cases for me.

I’m unsure what this means in practice, so no idea if that would complicate things for my use case.

Ok, v1.2.0 implements this feature.

This is the relevant section in the readme:
