Is my assumption correct on $items['path'] declaration ?

In the video topic "Displaying a block with hook_block_view() and checking permissions with user_access()"

you have used the below code LINE 147:

    $output .= '<li>' . l($item['title'], $item['path']) . ' - ' . format_interval(REQUEST_TIME - $item['timestamp']) . ' ' . t('ago') . '</li>';

The variable $item['path'] seems to stand out as you have not declared this in the trails_menu() function by yourself. While the $items['title'] has been done so.

I understand that $path is by default given a value by the hook_menu() function is that the reason why it still works ?

Hi Vishal, When I look at the

Hi Vishal,

When I look at the 8th step file - trails.module.08.hook-block-view.step - it looks like $item['path'] is being stored in the trails_history variable (see line 23). So, it works just like $item['title'] would.
