I am creating the following pseudo field in hook_node_view:

function user_guides_node_view($node, $view_mode, $langcode) {
    $node->content['field_mytest'] = array('#markup' => '<p>This is my test</p><p>[current-page:title]</p>');

This is the rendered result:

This is my test

How can I get the value of the token to be displayed instead of the token itself?

  • #markup is raw HTML markup (eg, the final product). you must 1st pass your token value through a render function.

  • Is there something already that I can pass a block of text through with the token somewhere in the middle, and it parses the token out of the text and replaces it with its value?

  • Question: Why do you need to use tokens in first place? You have the node object, and all the static variables that you can access with PHP.

You can use token_replace() for that. As you're using a global token (no context required) it's very simple:

$markup = token_replace('<p>This is my test</p><p>[current-page:title]</p>');
$node->content['field_mytest']['#markup'] = $markup;
