I have content type "article", in some cases I need to orginise group of parent and child nodes and to do this I use Node Reference from URL module. Also I need to include parent node in this group of articles because some views and node URL depend on completed field "node reference". So, how it works now:
I create a parent node and leave the node reference field empty as the parent node doesn't exist now;
Save this node
Back to edit page and choose my new parent node from the list of avalible nodes in node reference field;
What I would like to do is to create parent node and fill node reference field at the same time.
I guess that Rules module could help me but It too powerfull module and I do not need it for my website. Is there a more simple solution?
Provides a widget for inline management (creation, modification, removal) of referenced entities.
The primary use case is the parent -> children one (product display -> products, order -> line items, etc.), where the child entities are never managed outside the parent form.
This module extends reference fields like the user and node reference fields by adding links to add, edit and search for references through a dialog. This allows for a workflow where the user can create all the references to a node at the same time as she is creating it, a process which sometimes get's a bit backwards, when a user for instance needs to create all the facts for an article.
Both will allow you to create a referenced node at the same time as creating the referee.
