I have a paragraph contact nested inside another paragraph occurrence.

In the widget settings the paragraph contact is defined to be collapsed by default (edit_mode = closed).

I want the contact paragraph only to be open when creating the content and only on the first occurrence.

How can this be achieved?

Thanks in advance.

    Could you please modify the question to explain the precise meaning of "open" and "closed" in this context?

  • Do you just need to define a default paragraph bundle on the form display settings for the field?

  • @cilefen with close I mean collapsed an open, the contrary uncollapsed. I edited my question

I achieved what I wanted to to by letting the contact field open by default (edit_mode = open) and then in an hook_form_node_form_alter remove the contact form with this code

// Collapse contact field except for the first occurence.
foreach ($form['field_occurence']['widget'] as $delta => $field) {
  if (is_int($delta) && $delta != 0 && isset($field['subform']['field_contact']['widget']['0']['subform']['#type'])) {

I guess there is a cleaner way but form the moment that does the trick.
