Boston Drupal Meetup

Excellent meetup last night. The stuff I actually thought to jot down:

My Lightning Talk was on my collaborative knowledge base project at the day job. The Node Auto Term (NAT) module was pointed out as an potential substitute for the book module.

David mentioned an issue he has having with Automatic Nodetitle (the string "0" turning into a null) - it uses the Token module, which I've just signed up to co-maintain along with pathauto, so I want to take a quick look at that (if I can squeeze another ten minutes out of the next couple of weeks...).

Token bug

Another step on the return to active web development... Setting up my books on this site, with the pathauto module enabled, I found that the book title was not being substituted in the URL as it should.

For a little context, I was the original author of the pathauto module a few years back - this module automatically generates user-friendly aliases for Drupal content based on patterns you set up. For example, this post would have the address http://mikeryan.name/node/8 without pathauto, but because I've set it up with a pattern of blog/[author-name-raw]/[title-raw], it has the address http://mikeryan.name/blog/mikeryan/token-bug instead.
