Description: We have several cookbooks BreakPage, SectionEdit which uses the forms on Site.EditForm and have to replace/change in forms.php:

    if ($action != 'edit') return; 

Maybe we can introduce an global array which an edit handle can subscribe to get access?

You mean besides the $EditFunctions array?


Yes. But Klonk came up with using a second parameter

    if ($action == 'edit' && isset($_REQUEST['secondparameter']))  
        $HandleActions['edit'] = 'MyHandle';

so the action name 'edit' can still be used to bypass the if statement in forms.php. I think this is feasable and we can close this pits entry.
