205 How to Use Views

Please note that Drupal 6 classes and training environments are no longer available. This material is available only as reference. If you need help with your Drupal 6 site, please attend Open Lab.

Further your Views prowess with the second installment of the Drupal Views training series.  Come see how you can gain efficiencies via importing, cloning, and exporting Views and creating multiple View displays of different content using overrides.

Additionally, we'll cover the use of exposed filters - which allow your users to search for content based on controlled keyword lists and we'll play with the fun Views Carousel style, which can be used to create a scrollable list of "featured" content such as images, text, and even entire nodes.

  • Intermediate Views Application
    • Views Reuse
      • Importing Views
      • Cloning Views
      • Exporting Views
  • Multiple Displays
    • Overrides
