I have two content types, Ad and Reply (think of how posting works on Craigslist for the Ad, and the Reply is an on-site form to reply). I am using Entity Reference Prepopulate to automatically create an entity reference back to the Ad when users click a link to make a Reply. The link looks like this:
Where NID is the node ID (filled in with a token using Panels).
Using Panels, I'd like to display the original Ad on the Reply edit page (to make it easier for users to write their message. I have overriden the node edit page (using Page Manager) and I added a view that has a contextual filter (NID). However, I don't understand how to pass a value for NID to the content pane using the reply link.
Ideally, I could make use of the
?field_reply_orig_node=NID that is already present in the link (how?), but if that is not possible, I could rewrite the link in Panels. I just don't understand how to rewrite it so that the contextual filter can pick up the value.
