The View module is a must have element for every Drupal website for customizing the front page of your site. It allows you to fetch the content from the database and then you can present it to the users in any you want. E.g.: Displaying a block of 3 recent posts.

Pathauto is an important element for any website that is used for generating auto URLs or path aliases like /category/custom-title for all types of content. The pattern is formed using the Token Module. For E.g. Using this module you are assured that all your blog contents are posted under blog/my-title, where title can be replaced using tokens.
This module offers token handling functionality for other modules in a Drupal powered business website. There are little snippets that can be replaced in a document using placeholders. Let’s take an example: Token generates a pattern that is used by Pathauto for creating URL alias. Let’s make it simpler, sending a single to number of recipients with very little changes for each recipient. Thus token module is important for running a business website.
