Globally unique page name on save


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a memory I've seen a module for this but I can't find it now: That when you save a page the name is globally unique, instead of just unique within it's siblings.

So that if there is another "page-with-name" somewhere my new page becomes "page-with-name-1" even though it doesn't have the same parent.

many thanks,

I thought it was easy to solve with a hook, but there's something strange:

  1. I create a page named "test" without unique status,
  2. I add a hook that set next pages as unique,
  3. I create another page "test" in a different parent,
  4. Page is saved without problem with "unique" flag and name "test", even is another page in another parent uses this name,
  5. If I remove the hook and try to do the same by manually checking the box: PW denies because another page uses this name.

So setting "unique" via a hook doesn't trigger the unique check when saving page, maybe @ryan can help.

I used this hook so unique flag is set before saveReady:

$this->addHookBefore('ProcessPageEdit::buildForm', function (HookEvent $event): void {
    /** @var Page $page */
    $page = $event->object->getPage();

    if ($page->template->name == 'hotlap')
