  • Use the Termcase module to apply taxonomy formatting

    Me being happy The project I'm currently working on involves several authors writing a lot of content. They tag all articles and pages with self-entered terms (free-tagging).

  • Extend your Page Title using the Drupal breadcrumb path

For the Book Pages I needed something like book/[field_book_id-raw]/title-of-my-page. This is where I got stuck.

    Thanks for visiting my new blog. I've been thinking quite a lot whether I should start a blog or not. But now I finally gave up the excuse of not having enough time to keep it up-to-date, because I believe that everything you want to do can be achieved with the right planning and the right priorities. As a board member of the Dutch Drupal Association and a fanatic lurker of (technical) blogs I found that I couldn't ignore the power of having a blog myself.
