i hope you understood the title of my topic because i have difficulties to express this problem in english.

I would like to change the menu item which is a tab (saved searches) and put it on my menu block.

enter image description here

So i went to the files of the module and found this:


$items['user/%user/saved-searches'] = array(
'title' => 'Saved searches',
'description' => 'View and edit your saved searches.',
'page callback' => 'search_api_saved_searches_user_listing',
'page arguments' => array(1),
'access callback' => 'search_api_saved_search_edit_access',
'access arguments' => array(1),
'weight' => 5,
'type' => MENU_LOCAL_TASK,
'file' => 'search_api_saved_searches.pages.inc',

I know that MENU_LOCAL_TASK is a generally a tab, so i tried MENU_NORMAL_ITEM but it didn't work.

I tried some other thing and removed %user $items['user/saved-searches'] but after that i had many error, i tried to debug them but after many hours i stopped, it was clearly not a good solution to change code directly on a module.

So my question is: Is there a easy way to move a menu item from a tab to a menu block when the path has a wildcard components ? If it's not possible, do you think there is, maybe, a workaround to accomplish what i want to do?



i used views to achieve what i wanted to do but it was not easy because :

  • Fields was not the same and didn't have the good format
  • There was no filter "current user" So i create a custom template using views-view-table.tpl.php.

I don't know if what i did is very good:

  • I call global $user in my template, maybe it's a mistake, i don't know if we can do that Thxs to criticguy, i improved the following code by removing current user test

     <?php foreach ($rows as $row_count => $row): ?>
        <tr <?php if ($row_classes[$row_count]) { print 'class="' . implode(' ', $row_classes[$row_count]) .'"';  } ?>>
        <?php foreach ($row as $field => $content): ?>
         <td <?php if ($field_classes[$field][$row_count]) { print 'class="'. $field_classes[$field][$row_count] . '" '; } ?><?php print drupal_attributes($field_attributes[$field][$row_count]); ?>>
         <?php if($field == 'last_execute') : ?>
           <?php $last_execute = t('@time ago', array('@time' => format_interval(REQUEST_TIME - $content))); ?>
             <?php print $last_execute; ?>
           <?php elseif($field == 'created'): ?>    
             <?php $created = format_date($content, 'short'); ?>
             <?php print $created; ?>
           <?php elseif($field == 'notify_interval'): ?>    
             <?php $interval = format_interval($content, 1); ?>
              <?php print $interval; ?>
           <?php elseif($field == 'results'): ?>  
              <?php $tab = explode(',', $content); ?>
              <?php $x = 1 ?>
              <?php foreach($tab as $value): ?>
                <?php print '<a href="'.url().'node/'.$value.'">Resultat '.$x.'</a>'; ?>
                <?php $x++ ?>
              <?php endforeach ?>
           <?php else: ?>
            <?php print $content; ?>    
           <?php endif ?>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

Final result: saved search I'm always interested by my question about MENU_NORMAL_ITEM and MENU_LOCAL_TASK.
