Module of the week

  • Menu HTML https://www.drupal.org/project/menu_html

This very simple module adds a checkbox to the menu item edit form and allows the admin to add html to the menu item title. The idea is to use this for external links for which you want to display a logo of the visited site or simply to add strong on some words.

Module of the week

  • Block title link https://www.drupal.org/project/block_titlelink

Have you ever needed to make a block title a link? This module makes it easy. Block Title Link creates a link field on the Block Admin page. It works by overriding the $block->subject variable and changes it to a link.

Features Support: Block Title Link is compatible with the Features module by using the Strongarm module. Simply select any block_titlelink prefixed variables and they will be exported in your feature.
