Plugin code to run when stories are edited.



I have a site that uses a custom com_header function in it's theme. There is an image that display's in the header that is based on the story_id, topic_id or static_page_id. Everything works perfect, except when someone edits the story_id, static_page_id, or topic_id.

I remember a few years ago on the dev mailing list there was talk about running plugin code whenever a story is saved, I was wondering if this is implemented?

Basically what I need is whenever a story is saved I would like my code to be passed the old id along with the new id, so I can change my database fields to match the new ids.

Is this possible without hacking any core files?

There's PLG_itemSaved, but that's probably too late (I don't think you'll get the old sid). And then there's PLG_itemPreSave, but that's not implemented for the Admin's story editor.

So I guess the answer is "no" Confused

Thanks for your reply,

I wish I would have read it half an hour ago cause I just came to the exact same conclusion.
