Mastering Drupal 8 Views
Views was used on more than 80% of all Drupal 7 sites; now it is part of the Drupal 8 core.
Join in a father/daughter discussion about Views.
- Learn how to take full advantage of Views' power to create many amazing pages and blocks.
- Use filters to display only a relevant subset of your data.
- Instead of building 10 different view displays with different filters, learn how a contextual filter would require only a single display.
- Use relationships to combine data from several entities.
- Using contributed modules, Views can turn your data into maps, carousels, and other unique displays.
In this session, we'll start by clarifying termininology
- Then we'll modify a view built into core that everyone uses, the content page to create a custom content editor dashboard.
- From there, we'll build our own simple what's new content list.
- Next we'll expand and extend that list to create more complex displays, including maps and carousels.
- Finally we'll look at ways to make Views display exactly what you want in the format you want it..
- Create displays of content that are automatically updated when you add new content
- Show maps and rotating image carousels on your site
- Use fields from more than one content type to create powerful views of multi-table data
- Modify the field data being displayed, combining it in different ways or changing the HTML that might be normally generated
- Add headers and footers above and below a views display
- Make the output of your view look exactly like the designer specifies
- Change the order in which a list of content is displayed, limit the content shown to only certain content types or values
- Filter content using values passed to the view in the URL, making a single view work different ways
