1 menu_example.module menu_example_menu_alter(&$items)

Implements hook_menu_alter().

Changes the path 'examples/menu_example/menu_original_path' to 'examples/menu_example/menu_altered_path'. Changes the title callback of the 'user/UID' menu item.

Change the path 'examples/menu_example/menu_original_path' to 'examples/menu_example/menu_altered_path'. This change will prevent the page from appearing at the original path (since the item is being unset). You will need to go to examples/menu_example/menu_altered_path manually to see the page.

Remember that hook_menu_alter() only runs at menu_rebuild() time, not every time the page is built, so this typically happens only at cache clear time.

The $items argument is the complete list of menu router items ready to be written to the menu_router table.
