A Walk Through of Views

Note: This is a 3-hour interactive lab session

We'll walk you through how to create basic views pages, blocks and how to group results. That's just the beginning. With a 2.1/2 hour session, we'll move from simple views to more advanced views using relationships and contextual filters and sql grouping. This session will cover everything from the basics of views to the most advanced. This may appeal to both beginners and intermediate Drupal folk.

What Views Can Do:

  • KML (example use:Google Maps)
  • CSVs (example: Maling lists)
  • Reports
  • Invoices
  • Front Pages
  • Lists
  • Group Content
  • Bulk Edit Content
  • Creat Blocks
  • Calendars
  • JSON
  • Map Layers
  • Create Panels
  • iCal Feeds
  • List Content Regardless of Permissions
  • Show List of User's Content
  • Build eCommerce System
  • Yada Yada Yada

We'll be using D7 and D8. First hour will be a basic introduction to Views. The remaining 1 1/2 hours we'll be walking through the scary right hand "advanced" tab and all it's goodness. If there's any time at the end, we can cover some more elaborate uses with Display Suite. Slideshow coming soon......
