First off, thank you very much for a great tool. Up until now I have been able to create all sorts of different views, which has been a lifesaver. The issue I am having involves the Vote Tag under Relationship 'Node: Vote results.' I created a CCK fivestar field for one of my content types and set the 'vote axis' to points. When I try to select 'points' under Vote Tag, it is not listed. I checked phpmyadmin and the votes are being saved with 'points' as the tag. I am not sure if there is something I am missing. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

shouldn't this be a issue for fivestar?

views does not do the integration of fivestar or cck

I'll take a closer look at this in a moment. Thanks.

Are you using version 2.0 or later of VotingAPI? Not one of the release candidates? Using a 'clean' copy of VotingAPI 2.1, I'm seeing the following in the Views relationships form:

Aha, wait, I think I may be confused. You're talking about using the word 'points' as a vote tag in Fivestar, not using "point-style voting". Hmmm. Fivestar may need to implement a hook to announce to VotingAPI that it's using the extra tag data.

Thank you for the quick response, especially on the 4th of July. To answer your question I am using Votingapi 6.x-2.1.

Sorry for using the same name 'points' as a voting tag as it is an option under Value Type in Views. I changed the voting axis in fivestar to 'test' and when I tried to select 'test' under Vote Tag the option was not available. Shall I post this as an issue in fivestar?

Thank you

I've moved it over to the Fivestar queue, but it's only an issue because of a change in VotingAPI 2.0's official release. I'll put a patch together in a bit and see if I can get it in. Thanks!

Thanks for the patch. I will give it a try and let you know how it goes.

Also, the -dev release of VotingAPI (soon to be VotingAPI 2.2) will include an 'other' option when building relationships that lets you choose tags/functions/etc that aren't explicitly announced by other modules.

This patch looks good and Views generates the right query using a test tag. Committed.
