This doesn't look right.

Seems to me that this module should implement hook_inline_entity_form_entity_form_alter() besides the usual alter, so that IEF is covered as well.

Ok, here is a new attempt :).

+ $entity_form['title']['#value'] = 'ant';

It's in right now, but I haven't analyze the code enough so do not know why either.

After a black-box test on the patch at #3 it seems to work fine.

#3 works for me as well, thanks.

Node title is required on submission, so I'm assuming that this is just assigning an arbitrary string to #value so that it can be generated later.

Also, this seems to have tested well, so any chance of getting it committed?

+1 that #3 is RTBC.

Tested and it solves the problem.

Reviewed the code and found no objections. I thought it was a shame that it sort of duplicates so much of auto_nodetitle_form_node_form_alter() but they're both small functions and enough details are different that trying to merge them is going to make the code worse.

Inline Entity Form is becoming the defacto standard for solving the problem of creating new entities for an entity_reference field in D7. I think it's worth it for auto_nodetitle to add this extra code to properly support that module.

I altered patch in #3 to ensure this patch is also working when the title module is active (which replaces the title field).

Ignore #12, uploaded new file which fixes the title module too in inline entity forms.

Looks like this has been reviewed by others and work — how can we get this added to a -dev release now?
