On a new Drupal 7 site, I have created a Links page that includes categorized links. The main links page is a table of all links that I've setup using Views. This table shows the URL, a link title, and the link Category. I've setup a number of categories (in a new field called field_link_cat) that the user is required to select from via drop-down menu when generating a new link entry. There would then be separate pages, laid out similarly, that would show only the links within the specified category.
Is there a way to use a field in Drupal's replacement patterns? I would like to be able to use field_link_cat as a replacement pattern for both URL generation (via pathauto) and for breadcrumbs (via custom breadcrumbs). The goal is to have a link for Joe's Diner appear as:
Breadcrumb: Home >> Links >> Food
Thanks in advance!
