Drupal 7: Views Menu Reference Module

David G - DrupalOften times in website development I’ve received the request to show an image on certain types of pages, typically an image will be assigned per menu section or url path. In the past I’ve done 1 of 2 things:

  1. I created a custom content type and used a list field and funky custom code to store a menu item ID (mlid) for when to show an image on a certain path.
  2. I used the Header Image module to create a custom content type + block to show an image in a Drupal block on certain paths. In general this is a usable solution but I found since Header Image is drupal content (nodes) this becomes a hassle when building a drupal site via code.
