If you are using the geocoder module in Drupal 7 and you need the opportunity to alter the data being geocoded right before it gets sent to whichever geocoding service you are using, there is a hook for that.

Moving Views Exposed Filters Form Elements Around

In Drupal 7, Views allows you to easily create exposed filters and alter a lot of the logic involved.  However, sometimes you get requests to add text to the form or position things in ways that the Views UI does not allow for.

I've got two solutions that are arguably not as Drupal-like as I would like, but I've run into some dead ends on occasion with trying to fullfill requests with only Drupal-like alterations.  And of course if there are better ways to do it, I am open to them.

Drupal View result count incorrect with Search API

In Drupal 7, if you use Views in combination with a search index from Search API, and you try to use the Global: Result summary in the header or footer of the View, you may find that the total number of results matches the number of items on the page, not the total number of items in the search index.

To correct this issue, hook_views_pre_execute will make everything work as you would expect.

Drupal: Altering Page Title and or Title Tag

Sometimes you need to alter the title that appears on the page and or the title tag in Drupal 7. If you need to make them both the same, a call to drupal_set_title() from within a hook_preprocess_page() will do it.
