This module is now deprecated. Development continues at Reference views, which is essentially the 2.x branch but with a new name.
This module provides a new display formatter for CCK node reference fields. The formatter allows a view to be used as the display style for CCK node reference fields. This means that instead of just a title, teaser, or full node, you can show nodes using any fields that are available to Views, in any sort order, in any view style, with any views theming.
The view should have the same name as the field, including the automatic 'field_' prefix, eg 'field_my_noderef'. The first view argument must be a node id, set to allow multiple ids: this has passed to it all the nids from the CCK nodereference field. No other arguments are passed to the view. The view's default display is shown.
To get started, you can clone the example view that comes with this module: it comes with the argument already set. You can add any fields and sorts and filters. One limitation however is that the order of items set in the CCK field isn't accessible to Views.
This module does nothing to node edit forms.
