I've been using the excellent MX Title Control CE to append the epoch seconds to the end of my URL string so that they end up:


It works great through the back end, but when I use Channel Form the url_title is always set to 0.

Does anyone have any experience of getting these two to play nicely together?

I've included a field for the url_title in my Channel Form which is (I think) all I need to do, though the instructions are a little sparse...


  • hi Joe, I hope it can wait for two more days - needs to make a small fix, but I don't have time till Saturday. I will notify you when it will be ready.
