(Greetings fellow Drupal folks, this is Todd who used to attend this group's meetings.)
I am creating a website for a weekly web-based radio program and have run into the limits of my knowledge of Drupal. I have created a content type called 'Episode' where I enter all the information and upload the audio file. But my friend will rebroadcast an episode if it is popular or when he takes a week off. I have just assumed he would create a new Episode with the same content. Unfortunately, this creates duplicate entries when searching the site, and spreads comments and 'Star Ratings' across multiple nodes.
I would like to create a view or content type that refers to a single episode multiple times by the actual broadcast date, as in this example from the current/old site. You can see the interview with Ian Holzman is repeated two weeks in a row, but clicking either interview takes one to the same content.
Do I have to create a new content type (e.g. 'Broadcast') that can contain this information? If so, how do I pull-in the information from the existing interview Episode?
Or do I need to add one or more specific modules to make this possible?
If I can learn how to do this, I think I can create the View necessary to create the same kind of table display.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
