I have a custom field which should be only visible when a node (an article) is being edited (and not shown when a new content is created). I'd like to avoid installing a module for this, so my question is if there might be a specific configuration setting for this in the core itself?

  • You would have to do a form alter for this. – Kevin Apr 24 at 13:25
  • There is no configuration for this, do what Kevin said. – No Sssweat Apr 24 at 13:54
  • Yes, there is no configuration in core. Another option is using different form modes, which you can configure in core, but not control when they are used. For this you need a module like drupal.org/project/form_mode_control – 4k4 Apr 24 at 14:06
