These page data will have their own default values.
I have updated the
Page class recently so that now we can have more meaningful default page data.
The engine will first search for a hard-coded
time data from the page file to be used. If it doesn’t exist, then it uses the page’s file modification time as the page time. But, if the page’s file name itself is formatted as a timestamp-like format, then the engine will try to parse the page’s file name into a valid
time data. So now you can set a file name as
2017-04-21-14-25-02.page to set the
time data to
2017-04-21 14:25:02 or
2017-04-21.page to set the
time data to
2017-04-21 00:00:00. If there is no
title field provided in the page file, the
title data will be set to
2017/04/21 02:25:02 PM for the first example and
2017/04/21 12:00:00 AM for the second example.
You can now create a page file without the
title field but still can have it included to the page output. It is a fake title that is generated from the page’s file name.
Exception for this. There are no plan for making the fake
description data which is —you guess— created from the page’s
content data. Consider to use the excerpt plugin instead.
url value will use the file path that is converted into a public URL by the
id value will use the
time value that is converted into Unix time format as string.
type value wil use the page’s file extension that is converted into upper-case words.
Note: If you set some default values explicitly in
pageconfiguration property, then those data will be replaced by them. Example:
Config::set('page', [ 'title' => 'My Default Title', 'type' => 'HTML' ]);
