Topic and description
Learn how to build complex displays of content—all without programming.
Views was used on more than 80% of all Drupal 7 sites; now it is part of the Drupal 8 core. While many site builders and site owners are aware of Views, they don't understand how to take full advantage of its power to create many amazing pages and blocks. If they are using Views, they might build 10 different view displays with different filters, without knowing that a contextual filter would require only a single display.
Using our sample company, we'll take its existing content and evolve an ever more complex and powerful website for that company, starting with adapting the administration the user sees and moving on to making complex pages of information for site visitors.
While the book is written for Drupal 8, the similarities between Views in Drupal 7 and 8 make this a useful reference for Drupal 7 site builders also.
What you will learn
Create displays of content that are automatically updated when you add new content
Show maps and rotating image carousels on your site
Combine content to create composite displays using the same data in different ways
Use fields from more than one content type to create powerful views of multi-table data
Modify the field data being displayed, combining it in different ways or changing the HTML that might be normally generated
Add headers and footers above and below a views display
Make the output of your view look exactly as the designer specifies
Change the order in which a list of content is displayed, and limit the content shown to certain content types or values
Filter content using values passed to the view in the URL, making a single view work in different ways
The module provides a default view that shows a list of all tokens registered on the site in a table format. The view allows users to filter by device type and exposes a username search box. To get the tokens list into the admin interface (/admin/config/services/push_notifications/tokens), follow these steps:
The objective of this initiative is to create an Open Curriculum for new developers to come into Drupal and get trained in the various aspects of Drupal development. The curriculum is aimed at helping Drupal companies train new recruits in Drupal in a systematic and structured manner. The training is expected to happen through in-class sessions, self-learning, training exercises and finally on-the-job learning. The open curriculum is expected to be a framework that will allow the developers to build an understanding of the technology and then fill in details as they go through the process of training and working on projects.

The Group module comes with its own set of configurable roles and permissions. For each group you can specify appropriate permissions, and this for various "roles" that are specific to the Group module (these roles are not the typical/global roles of a typical Drupal site).
