In the Drupal 8 screen for editing a node, we have these two sections:
URL Path Settings > URL alias
Menu Settings (Menu link title, Description, Parent item, Weight)
How, given the URL alias of a node, can we get those Menu Settings, particularly the Menu link title?
This may break down into two separate problems:
- finding the node ID from the URL alias
- finding the Menu Settings from the node ID
and in fact I would be thrilled at a solution to either one, even as a high-level explanation.
I would go into detail about how I've attempted to answer this question already, and the services & classes that appear to be relevant, but I don't want to post a complicated-looking question. If data is that easy to put into those basic fields in the UI, it should at least be possible for some module code to get it back out.
