Programmatically alter a Drupal menu without disabling access to the page.

I came across a need to keep a menu link active, but, I didn't want it to be displayed to the anonymous user. After much searching I found the hook_menu_link_alter() function and the hook_translated_menu_link_alter() function.

With these functions, I was able to alter the menu item that I wanted to not display with hook_menu_link_alter():

Drupal: Disabling another module's rule configuration from my own module.

Today I was working on a feature on a site that was using Ubercart's uc_roles module. By default, whenever a customer would buy a product with a role attached to it, an email would be generated stating what role that customer bought.

Today we needed to override the menu links of one menu on our Drupal 7 site. We started with theme_menu_links(), but quickly decided that we didn't want to figure out what menu every menu link belonged to.

Getting a themed views title within a style tpl file

I ran into an issue today where I needed to get a themed views title from within a views row style template file (tpl). I tried using drupal_get_title() and menu_get_item() but the title elements were all blank for these. Next I inspected the $views object looking for the themed title but it was not listed. Finally, I discovered within $views->build_info the title and substitutions variables.
