New Drupal Module: Book Menus

Production Webserver Series

Although being removed from core in D8, the book module can come in handy in some situations.

However, there's rather limited functionality in terms of menu organization. Particularly not being able to have "non-linked" headers for sections of the book.

We've just released Book Menus for D7. You can see it in action by clicking the header link in the Production Weberver Series here on

It took a lot of fancy hookwork, but all of the native book features & navigation are taken care of by this module.

The short of it is that it turns the "Book Outline" into a normal Drupal menu, so menu manipulation modules like special_menu_items or menu_html can be used with it.
