I'm using the Message module, and I have some message types. Each message type needs to have a node reference field on it whose value would not change for the entire message type. But different values per message type.
Right now I can create a new message type with a field on it, but the instances of messages are generated programmatically on demand as sent.
What I ultimately need to do is generate a token based on the value of this field.
So how would I go about creating a value that would be inherited by all instances of a message type? Ideas?
Any advice useful. Sort of don't know what functions would be useful here and the docs really don't address this use case.
