How to Auto Node Title Nodes of a Certain Content Type in Drupal 7

Sometimes when you are creating a piece of content, the title field does not make sense to be filled out by the user. In these cases, its best to hide it and have it filled in automatically. Depending on your needs, the Auto Nodetitle may be able to give you everything you need.

Drupal Root Path To the File System

If you are ever in need of the root path of your drupal installation as a file system path, you can use the constant DRUPAL_ROOT in Drupal 7.

This might come in handy for requiring files or includes that have different paths for different environments, such as local, staging, or production sites.

For example, when working locally on a mac, the contents of DRUPAL_ROOT might contain something like:

/Users/bri/Sites/MAMP/mysite

But when I want to put that code in production on a linux box, then the content of the DRUPAL_ROOT might be:

/var/www/mysite/html
