I have seen similar questions asked, but mine is a little different. I want to register a post type called
'minutes' that doesn't allow you to add a
title or a
slug, but when you publish (or autosave) it automatically gives the post a title of today's date, and a
slug with a canonical representation of the date.
So, title would be
"December 7th, 2012" and the slug would be
I don't want the
title bar or
slug to even be present on the editor page, because I don't want people to think they can fill in their own title. However, I think disabling titles entirely when registering a custom post type means it can't even get an auto-generated one. I don't know for sure, though, so maybe you can help me understand it. Thank you.
