MODULE OF THE WEEK:

Menu Item Visibility


www.drupal.org/project/menu_item_visibility


This module exposes configurable and extendable visibility settings for menu links. For example, if you want to create a 'My account' link that points to /user, both anonymous and registered users have access to the /userpath, so both will see the link, even if anonymous users do not technically have an account. Using this module will allow you to only have your 'My account' link visible to registered users, and hide it from anonymous users.
The module uses the exact same UI used for block visibility settings for familiarity.

Module of the Week

Disable Messages - www.drupal.org/project/disable_messages

Gives a site owner options to disable specific messages shown to end users. The core drupal message system as offered by drupal_set_message is an excellent way for modules to send out messages to the end users. However not all drupal site owners are keen to show all the messages sent out by drupal core and all modules to their users. This module gives site administrators a reasonably powerful way to filter out messages shown to the end users.
