Views Developers

This group should probably have more organizers. See documentation on this recommendation.

This group exists as a place for people interested in the group to talk about Views development; all development talk is encouraged here, from people who want to work on Views core to people who are interested in Views' API for their own modules. This is a good place to:

1) ask questions
2) talk about problems
3) propose ideas.
4) talk about views related projects.

This group is now unmoderated, and anyone can join at any time. Public posting of ideas is encouraged.

What I want most out of this is to keep track of what views related projects are going on and their status, and proposals for what people would like to see as Views moves forward.

Note: This is a working group. Do not post jobs here, you will lose your posting privileges entirely. Do not post support requests here; they will be deleted.

Views 2 Theming Documentation

This is an effort to get people in the community to do some work for me. Maybe I'm a bit lazy, but this is a piece of work that I've admitted I'm simply never going to get to. Yet it is needed.

This document is intended to be a comprehensive document on theming Views. It should cover all of the basics, and it should also include tutorials. It really needs to be both.

I want to start with a topic list. I'm not even sure the best way to lay this out, so I'm going to start with the really obvious topics:

How to return a view that FULLY matches profile with node

My issue is that I have a view that returns: (1) A field that the user has selected in their profile (Eg items in my inventory) (2) A field that has a task (which then shows the items that the task needs in order to be completed).

I want to set it up so that views checks to see if the individual has the necessary pieces and only shows tasks where the user has ALL the items.

I can get it so that it displays only the currently logged in user.

Drupal modules that are successfully combined with Views

We can’t imagine Drupal without Views. Other modules can be combined with it to help you configure Views according to your website's needs. They extend the functionality of Views and add new useful features.

A review of modules that could be successfully combined with Views can be found in the blog post by our developer.

Hi everyone;

I have an interesting problem.
I try to build some kind of related content block.

Sortly, I use tags as a channels/catagories. For example; there is a content like best Spanish football clubs and this content got three tags; Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atl. Madrid.

For me, this three tags are channels and they got own pages. I try to find related channels with the best way.

I add a image and try to explain there. I give a example with three content.
That i need is last part of image, means counts of tags.

Data updated in views->result does not get rendered

Dear drupalers,

During the hook_post_execute process I'm trying to update some node fields. The idea is to make some calculations using data from views->result and then update the nodes. The node fields I want to update are part of the query too, and at the end of the story I need the data updated rendered.

Below there is an example of the piece of code I'm trying:

function my_module_views_post_execute(&$view){
if ($view->human_name=='my_view'){
$nid_node = $view->result[0]->nid;
$mynode = node_load($nid_node);

How to make exposed filter with "more" , "less", "between" operators if...

This group is the closest to my little problem which is trivial, yet cannot solve it quickly.
I have a field (D7) of "List (integer)" type where user selects his birth date form predefined years from 1900 to 2000. But there seem is no simple way to get a view exposed filter with "more" , "less", "between" operators from that field. What solution would you suggest? Want to have select lists in both cases - in field input and in exposed filter as this is good for UX.

Change Records for Views


I'd like to contribute to the drupal community so I thought I'd start with views. I'd like to write a change record, and see several open issues with the tag "needs change record". However, the issue titles start with "Change notice:" or "Change record:". Does that mean someone is already working on these?

How to implements View's relationships on a custom field?

Hi guys, I've created a simple custom field (via field api) that should "emulate" references, but allow to define the "reference" type (using a Taxonomy Term).

I cant put taxonomy term directly in the user, becose a user can be an employee of two different companies.
