Learn Views with NodeOne, part 19: Contextual filters with paths

This screencast is a part of the Learn Views with NodeOne screencast series. It introduces the *contextual filter (arguments) concept, and shows how it can be used with paths.*

This screencast covers the following topics:

  • Using contextual filters for filtering Views result
  • Using input from the view path to set contextual filter values
  • Using contextual filter values for changing the view title

Want more? Check out the next episode – Action if no contextual filter value is present: summary – subscribe to the series' RSS feed, or take a look at the complete list of screencasts in this series.

Please note that this screencast series was produced during a short period of time, and may contain parts that appear (and are!) unprepared. Sorry about this. Also, the View version used is in development stage and still contains some bugs. That's life in the front line!

Currently there is no official documentation for the Views 3 module, but you can always read more about Views on the Views project page at drupal.org. If you want to help out with making Views better, please consider answering support questions in the Views issue queue!

Thank you very much for your excellent video series. They are my primary source for learning something about Drupal. I am absolutely amazed that you have taken so much time and effort. I cannot thank you enough.
I have a small problem. In creating a contextual filter (clicking Add) , no User fields are displayed and "User" does not appear in the Filter List. I now have splinters from scratching my head :) I would appreciate your help. I am using Drupal 7.16
Thank you, Anthony

Does this work the same for if you want to filter by a taxonomy field? I'm having trouble trying to create simple contextual filter based on tags passed through the URL. Are there other settings needed for handling taxonomy fields when using contextual filters?
