New Video Class: Drupal Contextual Views

Drupal Contextual Views

In this advanced views class, Robert explores contextual filters.

Contextual filters work similarly to regular filters, but there is one important difference. Instead of setting a filter value manually, the value is fetched from variables sent programmatically to the view. This adds an incredible amount of flexibility to the views you create.
