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.

Relate two views

Hi all,

I need to relate the two blocks (created via views). I have the 'latest news' block and another block displaying 'press release'. But there is repeat of some nodes in 'latest news' and 'press release'. So, I want to prevent 'press release' block displaying already loaded nodes in 'latest news' block. Please help.

Is there any modules to solve this issue?

ここのサイトでは、プロフィールページは複数の人が1ページにまとまっていて、ページ内のアンカーリンクに飛ぶようになっていますが、今回、せっかく Drupal で作るのですから、プロフィールは「1名1ページ(ノード)」で作り、そこへのリンクが張られるようにしたいわけです。
サイト自体のメインの「プロフィール紹介ページ」は、その各自プロフィールノードを Views でまとめて、上の病院サイト同様に複数人の概要を1ページにまとめて表示しようと思っています。

Views refactoring ideas #Round 1: The View object.

The main problem is highly related to the view object itself, which has grown organically. The main goal of this discussion is to separate concerns from the view object (reduce its capabilities) to creates an API that is loosely coupled (that is, 3 interfaces that deal with: Configuration, Data Source and Rendering). An anecdotal evidence is that this object is known to be the heart of the system.

Views: "I have a hammer and everything else is a nail"

I am going to intensively use the chapter 5 of the Anti Pattern book on the Golden Hammer because it is exactly what views is. Putting it in core would be in my opinion a big mistake. I will explain first what is the problems of this anti pattern, and why the "in core" wont magically solves all the code and management issues whereas the general solution should be: expand your horizons.

Apologies for the re-post but I'd made this request via other groups and had not thought of placing it here so it's been positioned toward the back. If anyone could provide any advice it would be greatly appreciated :-)

Views (Table Format) - how to show ONLY those fields that have been filtered as opposed to all fields?

I have a view showing a table with say about 20 fields attached to it and exposed filters for all these fields. My question is assuming I am only filtering on 5 fields how can I ensure the table only shows these 5 fields that I have filtered as opposed to bringing back the results but still showing all the other fields as well?

Custom Views Handler Question

I am digging into the Views API to try and customize a filter handler. I am trying to filter a node reference field with multiple values. I have found that the many_to_one handler functions to filter items "such as terms (many terms per node) or roles (many roles per user)". This sounds like what I need since each of my nodes may contain multiple node references on the same field.

Using exposed views with Remote Blocks module

I am not sure if this is where I might get some help with this issue but here it is.

I am trying to use the remote block module to grab blocks(which are actually exposed views) from one site (Site A) and display/work in another site (Site B).

The module displays them correctly and with no problems but when i try to search or used the exposed widget(filter block) it tries to look for the content within Site B and it can't find it so I get a 404 error.

Is there any way to configure this module to get this to work? or is there any other module or solution to get this to work??

Help with a next/previous item view.


I have to add a new feature to a site.. Basically there is a "schedule" content type with week commencing field.. What they want to achieve is a the ability to go to the "next week" or the "previous week" easily without doing back to the main view of "all weeks"..

My initial thought was that this could be done with a view as a block showing three successive weeks with the currently viewed week in the middle.. While this wouldn't be a next/previous as such it would provide the required functionality..

Problem is I can't work out how to get it to work..

Anyone have any ideas?

How to remove node from view if node's field is empty

I'm usign Drupal 7 + Views.
I have a content type with Gallery field which is Image field with unlimited number of values.
I want to list the nodes with at least one image and hide nodes without images uploaded.

Let's say I have 2 nodes:
1) Page 1 with images
2) Page 2 without images

So I want page 1 without images to be displayed in view.
I've tried to add Filter Criteria: Content: Gallery (field_images:delta) - Is Not Empty and it works - Page 2 without images is not displayed anymore, but Page 1 appears twice. See attached screenshots.

How to list members in a group using views Drupal 7 [ Profile 2 + Organic Group ]?

I am using Profiles 2 and Organic groups.

I was successful in listing users via views > Users.

I am using "profiles 2" module to collect and store details of users rather than the core drupal user management.

I have created few groups using "organic groups" module.

My question is how to list all the "PROFILES" (created via profile2 module) of members belonging to a group using views ?
