When I create a new post using a custom post, I don't want the user to edit the title or the slug. I'd rather set the slug/title with values that are stored in a custom field. Is that possible?



Thanks for contacting Toolset support.

This might be done, but is not totally related to Toolset, you'll have to add a custom function for this. Please take a look here : hidden link



Thanks, I will pursue that.
