Pretty good thing
This module is like a good parfume in a ugly bottle. It has few features but, u use it cuz you don't have any other choice :))
He's doing his job really well
I give it 3 stars for "ease of use" because it took me a goood while to figure out how to implement in my project. Afther that, everything worked smoothly. Anyway.. this thing balances with the fact that has really good features, which i didn't found in any other module on drupal.org.
Maybe this module can not be configured and used alone but this module is a highly needed module for many excellent other Drupal modules. Many modules based on Token and its a requirement for most Drupal websites to work better and more functional.
Essential supporting module
This is no end-user module but a supporting module and sometimes required module for other modules.
Pathauto is probably the most used module which requires Token. It allows you to set up automatic URL's per content type which is something I do for all of my content types. That makes this module a must have for me.
Another module which makes use of Token is FileField, a type of CCK field available as a plugin module. Thanks to Token I can set the names of the uploaded files to the same values as those stored in some other CCK-field within the same node.
With the module FileField Paths I can set where the uploaded file should be saved and with Token I have alot of tokens to choose from.
Important supporting module
This is a very mature, reliable token replacement module that doesn't do much on its own, but sure makes modules like Pathauto a heck of a lot more powerful. There's a reason this is in the top 5 Drupal 6 modules. The documentation is pretty good. And for the complaint that you can't get a list of the current tokens, it's up to the modules that implement token to make sure they display them in a helpful context (see pathauto).
Great Except there is no list of default tokens in documentation.
The documentation for this great module sucks! I cant find any of the features I need!
A requirement for path auto, so a requirement for me.
As the module description states, there is no end-user functionality. However because the path auto module requires this to work, it is a requirement for me on all sites.
Token, I don't specifically know or care what you do, but thank you.
Not for end users
This is a stellar module that adds a small but extremely useful bit of functionality to Drupal. End users only need to install this if required by other modules, but all developers should be aware of this module and what it does.
Needed for Other Modules
This module does not do much on its own, however it is necessary for many modules (such as path_auto, and contemplate), and because of this, Token is amazing. The idea of the module is simple - allow a user to easily access information associated with a node. Simply created, simple to use. Great module!
