Drupal Taxonomy_Menu Module Patch


Recommended Posts


I am trying to override the urls that taxonomy_menu produce.


It changes urls such as




with a 'category' urls such as




I want to switch 'category' with 'forum' in the path and strip the 1/2/ so that the output matches the original url again.


Thank you for your insight.

This is the code I have been focusing my efforts on:


function _taxonomy_menu_menu() {

  $items['admin/settings/taxonomy_menu'] = array(

    'access arguments'    => array('administer site configuration'),

    'description'        => t('Global configuration of taxonomy menu functionality.'),

    'file'                => 'taxonomy_menu.inc',

    'page callback'      => 'drupal_get_form',

    'page arguments'      => array('_taxonomy_menu_admin'),

    'path'                => 'admin/settings/taxonomy_menu',

    'title'              => t('Taxonomy Menu settings'),

    'type'                => MENU_NORMAL_ITEM



  foreach (taxonomy_get_vocabularies() as $vocab) {

    if (variable_get('taxonomy_menu_show_'. $vocab->vid, TAXONOMY_MENU_NONE)) {

      $path =  variable_get('taxonomy_menu_display_page', 'category') .'/'. $vocab->vid;

      $items[$path] = array(

        'access arguments'    => array('access content'),

        'file'            => 'taxonomy_menu.inc',

        'page callback'  => '_taxonomy_menu_page',

        'title'          => t($vocab->name),

        'weight'          => $vocab->weight



      $tree = taxonomy_get_tree($vocab->vid);

      $old_depth = -1;

      $old_path = $path;

      foreach ($tree as $term) {

        if ($term->depth <= $old_depth) {

          $slashes_to_remove = $old_depth - $term->depth + 1;

          for ($i = 0; $i < $slashes_to_remove; $i++) {

            $old_path = substr($old_path, 0, strrpos($old_path, '/'));



        $path      = $old_path .'/'. $term->tid;

        $old_depth  = $term->depth;

        $old_path  = $path;


        $num = taxonomy_term_count_nodes($term->tid);


        if (variable_get('taxonomy_menu_hide_empty', FALSE) == FALSE or $num != 0) {

          $name = t($term->name);

          if (variable_get('taxonomy_menu_display_num', FALSE) == TRUE) {

            $name .= ' ('. $num .')';


          $items[$path] = array(

            'access arguments' => array('access content'),

            'file'            => 'taxonomy_menu.inc',

            'page callback'  => '_taxonomy_menu_page',

            'description'    => t($term->description),

            'title'          => $name,

            'weight'          => $term->weight,







  return $items;

  • Admin > Site Building > Modules
  • Enable the 'Path' Module.
  • When creating, editing or whatever to a page/story/comment etc, scroll to URL Path Settings and adjust accordingly to whatever you want.


I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for though, so I apologise if it is not. Either way I hope that helps. ;)
