7 – 8 hook_block_view_alter(&$data, $block)

Perform alterations to the content of a block.

This hook allows you to modify any data returned by hook_block_view().

Note that instead of hook_block_view_alter(), which is called for all blocks, you can also use hook_block_view_MODULE_DELTA_alter() to alter a specific block.

Parameters

$data An array of data, as returned from the hook_block_view() implementation of the module that defined the block:

  • subject: The default localized title of the block.
  • content: Either a string or a renderable array representing the content of the block. You should check that the content is an array before trying to modify parts of the renderable structure.

$block The block object, as loaded from the database, having the main properties:

  • module: The name of the module that defined the block.
  • delta: The unique identifier for the block within that module, as defined in hook_block_info().
