For example i have content type article i need to remove requirement for title, right now its a Node module element and i can not edit it. I found module title but when i installed id and tried to change title, my site crashed.

Is there any solution to achieve this?

Should i remove title on content type edit page and replace it with editable field?

UPDATE:

Some of you maybe do not understand me right). So i have content type Answer and this c.type has two fields title and body. When someone want to answer atm he needs to fill title field every time he wants to answer, but i need to give user a choice to just fill only body field OR body and title if user want to fill the title. The title field should be displayed on node edit every time!

So only way i see viable is to create new field and hide title with automatic-node-title module...

  • Why do you want to remove the requirement? Do you just need to hide the title or remove it completely? – Volker Dec 21 '12 at 10:59
  • i have a content type answer, so if user want to answer he can not add a titl, i dont need to remove it – Petro Popelyshko Dec 21 '12 at 11:01
  • What @jan said, i'd recommend auto-nodetitle module then as well... – Volker Dec 21 '12 at 11:03
  • @neok, I agree with jan. You can use Auto Node title and you can hide the title in the node view page using template override or display:none from css. – Sithu Dec 21 '12 at 11:16

I dont' think you can entirely remove the title from the nodes but you may hide it and automatically populate it, as is below:

Auto node titles and Title override

I have used the first one before.

  • i dont need to hide it, just need to remove requirement, but gonna check those modules – Petro Popelyshko Dec 21 '12 at 11:04
  • I think the title field in the node table schema is not allowed to accept null values, which would be a possibilty if you'd remove the requirement. So hiding the title and use it just in the backend would be the way to go... – Volker Dec 21 '12 at 11:12
  • i updated my question, you can see what i am actually need, i believe this is not the goal i am looking for. – Petro Popelyshko Dec 21 '12 at 11:26
  • Your requirement is not common. As what @Volker pointed out it cannot accept null values. Perhaps you can pull this off using a custom module, similar to auto node title but with a little extra -- toggles title to hide/unhide as required. – jan Dec 21 '12 at 19:51
  • ok, this module has helped me. – Petro Popelyshko Dec 25 '12 at 8:57
