So I set up an image gallery using this basic method:
In short - a content type "album" is created, having a filefield image field with an unlimited count. Photo albums are created by creating a new node of type "album", and then new images are added to that album by adding a new file attachment to the node with filefield.
A views 2 view formats each "album" node into a gallery page.
That's all fine and dandy, however I'd like to have a "latest images" block that can display a flickr-style grid of perhaps 10 of the latest images (same concept as the "latest image" block with the image module). This would involve a query that would search all of the "album" nodes and their filefields for the most recently added photos.
Does that make sense? Can this be done with views2, or do I need a custom query? I'm assuming I'll need something customized, but I'm just now beginning to harness the power of views2 so I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything I was missing.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!
