Is there a module that allows the user to update multiple node fields in one page?

I found a method using Views (http://eureka.ykyuen.info/2012/12/13/drupal-7-update-multiple-nodes-at-once-in-a-views/), but I prefer to use module approach. Probably something that utilizes function node_mass_update (https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/modules!node!node.admin.inc/function/node_mass_update/7)

I guess my first question is how many nodes are you looking to update. If it's a relatively small amount, you should just use VBO (per the article you referenced). That is the easiest contributed module method of updating multiple nodes.

However, it is possible for you to create your own module (i.e. custom_node_update) and run the node_mass_update upon form submission (as recommended by the API documentation). This will be especially useful if you are updating a large number of nodes because it will batch it appropriately, however, you'll be required to write some custom code.

Does this answer your question?

  • Thanks for your reply. The number of nodes varies from as little as one to as many as 50 nodes. I was hoping there was a module available for that, so I don't have to write something that has already existed.
