Create Drupal 7 menu links with empty titles! With Drupal’s hook_menu_link and <none>, create icon links & other styled links that have no text.
One of my biggest pet-peeves is creating Drupal 7 empty menu link titles since there’s no out-of-the-box solution.

For example, there’s a config file that’s checked in. You need to make local edits to test with. However, you often accidentally commit those changes (you forget). But you could tell Git to ignore changes in this file. Let’s say we have a file config.php that we want to edit locally and leave edited.
