I have a content type to submit events/workshops etc for a conference.

The fields I have are like this:

Label; Machine name; Field type; Widget; Event Title; title; Node module element;

Fields: Panel Image; field_panel_image; Image; Image;

Room; field_room; Entity Reference; Drag & Drop;

Timeslot; field_timeslot; Entity Reference; Drag & Drop;

Speaker First and Middle Name; field_speaker_first_and_middle_n; Text; Text field;

Speaker Last Name; field_speaker_last_name; Text; Text field;

Speaker Email(s); field_speaker1_email; Text; Text field;

Speaker Affiliation(s); field_speaker1_affiliation; Text; Text field;

Speaker Biography; field_speaker1_biography; Text; Text field;

Problem is that when the authorized user clicks on the link which leads to the add content type form it does just display the "Event Title" field. When I am logged in as admin I see the whole form.

But the "normal" authorized user needs first to hit save after typing in the event title and then the site displays the title of that just created node and an edit button. When the authorized user clicks on "edit" s/he sees the whole form.

Is there a way where the authorized user sees the whole form immediately when s/he calls up that content type form?

(Some of the fields mentioned above (room and time slot) have the permissions set so that just admins should be able to see it. But the other permissions are set for authorized users as well.

Thank you.

  • Please specify Drupal version; names and versions of the relevant modules that are in use. Also, if you’re using any node or field access modules make sure to rebuild the permissions, you can check that at the status page under reports. – osman Apr 3 '18 at 22:19
  • thanks for this. I edited the text and added the info on enabled modules, drupal version etc – Koinonikos Apr 3 '18 at 23:43
  • Have you tried rebuilding the permissions? – osman Apr 4 '18 at 0:56
  • I can think of 3 possible solutions based on the installed modules and how you describe the issue. I believe one of them will help you solve it. – osman Apr 4 '18 at 15:57
  • Yes. I did that to. This and disconnecting from organic groups did the trick – Koinonikos Apr 4 '18 at 21:06

Make sure you rebuilt the permissions first.

If the issue still exists, first check the permissions at /admin/people/permissions page. If the desired roles don't have required permissions for those fields.

For what you ask, create/edit/delete permissions must be given to desired roles.

Also check "Organic Group" settings. Field permissions might be misconfigured. This is more likely the issue.

  • Thanks for the tips osman. Disconnecting form organic group one of the fields within the content type did the trick..... – Koinonikos Apr 4 '18 at 20:59

If the previous two answers don't apply;

Third possible solution might be related with Conditional Fields.

Make sure to check all fields for their settings. Check if any of them has conditions defined making them available only on edit page, but not on create page as well.
