Save & Edit provides a very simple, yet welcome function to node editing pages.
It adds a button titled "Save & Edit" on selected node types which redirects
back to the edit form rather than returning to the node or admin page.

As simple as the module is, it provides a very much needed feature to core page
editing. When creating long, complex nodes where you want to save the node
regularly to avoid losing changes/edits, it takes an additional click to get
back to the edit form to continue; this module keeps you on the edit page.


  • Creates a "Save & Edit" button on node pages.
  • Allows you to choose what node types to use the feature on.
  • Allows you to customize the text for "Save & Edit", "Save & Publish", AND the
    default Backdrop node "Save" button to whatever you like.
  • Allows you to choose to use the Auto-Unpublish feature, which will mark nodes
    as unpublished when you use the Save & Edit button. This can either be turned
    off, used on ALL nodes/clicks of the Save & Edit button, or can also be only
    used on NEW nodes.
  • For ANY unpublished nodes, a new "Publish" button will allow you to quickly
    Save & Publish a node that was previously marked unpublished. This feature will
    be hidden on published nodes, and new nodes with the "Published" option checked
    by default.
  • Allows to hide each of the default "Save", "Preview" and "Delete" buttons


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions at
  • Navigate to Admin > Configuration > Content authoring > Save & Edit Settings
    (admin/config/content/save-edit) to adjust the settings and to enable for
    each content type.
  • Configure permissions.
