I need some clarification on how best to pass an argument to a view that is displayed using a dynamic field.
First I created a content type called essay which has two entity references to other node types publisher and publication. What I did was create a view with a contextual filter referencing the node id. The view works as intended as a block, when added via the standard Drupal blocks page. It manages to reference the node id and display the correct referenced entities when tested in the views UI and also as a normal block rather then dynamic filed.
Since I am using Display Suite for my node layouts, I want to use the view in my essay content type via display suite. I researched the problem and found this old thread (https://drupal.org/node/1341858). I enabled views content panes and inserted the view into a dynamic field. I then placed the dynamic field into my node layout however I discovered there are no arguments being passed to the dynamic field at all. I added a few %1 %2 %3 arguments to the overridden title to see if it anything was print out and nothing displayed in the title.
I feel like there is a step I am missing in all of this. Any assistance would be appreciated.
