    Default Default settings for new page/article

    Hello,

    my problem is how to set some dafault settings for new pages or articles. For example all new articles shoud have enabled options "print this page" and "export to pdf".
    Actually as default this options are disabled.
    What can I do to change these settings?

    Please try this in your system/config/dcaconfig.php
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    $GLOBALS
    ['TL_DCA']['tl_article']['fields']['printable']['default'] = array('print''pdf');
    It's update safe.

    Thank you, that work almost as I wanted.
    Only problem is that these options are checked when I manually add new article but are unchecked when article is created automatically with new page.
    I did not find 'printable' option for tl_page.
    Do you have any solution?

    Sorry, no solution for this. I opened a ticket https://github.com/contao/core/issues/8720

    Maybe you will set this field to mandatory.
    PHP Code:
    $GLOBALS['TL_DCA']['tl_article']['fields']['printable']['eval']['mandatory'] = true
    Or you will use a callback https://docs.contao.org/books/api/dca/reference.html

    Hello,

    as I saw on github there is no easy solution for this problem?
    So I can expect that it won't be corrected soon?
