$page->setAndSave() method

Quickly set field value(s) and save to database

You can specify a single field and value, or an array of fields and values.

This method does not need output formatting to be turned off first, so make sure that whatever value(s) you set are not formatted values.

Examples

// Set and save the summary field
$page->setAndSave('summary', 'When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.');
// Set and save multiple fields
$page->setAndSave([
  'title' => 'It is Friday again',
  'subtitle' => 'Here is another new blog post',
  'body' => 'Hope you all have a great weekend!'
]);
// Update a 'last_login' field after every user login
$session->addHookAfter('loginSuccess', function($event) {
  $user = $event->arguments(0);
  $user->setAndSave('last_login', time());
});

Usage

// basic usage
$bool = $page->setAndSave($key);

// usage with all arguments
$bool = $page->setAndSave($key, $value = null, array $options = []);
