This chapter walks through the process of adding links to the contextual drop-down widgets new in Drupal 7. It also shows how using menu autoloaders can help simplify the code that you write in your page callback function since you won't have to do extra checking on the data.
As a note, if you are wondering why we started our function with an underscore (_), naming functions with an underscore in front of the name is a common convention in Drupal that sort of implies that "this function is for internal use by this module only" and shouldn't be called by itself. It's also a nice way to ensure that your internal functions are not colliding with the namespace of a hook or another module. Here's a good blog post about naming things.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
