Book Description

The Drupal View modules give you the flexibility and freedom to customize the display of your web site's content. Defining custom content types is easy; however, it's also possible to use various content types in a complementary manner on the same page! Attachment displays in Views (also known as Attachment Views), are a way to customize your web site with multiple displays that interact with each other and turn a nice site into a spectacular one.

This hands-on tutorial will teach Drupal developers across the experience spectrum how to use Attachment displays in Views, to make quick progress in functionality and added-value to users! Views are a common way to display a collection of similar content types on one page. What do you do if you want to display different content types simultaneously? What if you want to allow a user to interactively select which content they want, without using a menu? You can actually have more than one display within a view and views within a view.

This book starts by introducing Attachment Views as reader activities. Here, we create a single Attachment View and take a closer look at giving each page an interactive feel. It also shows you to create a View with an Attachment View. Later, using practical examples, it helps you to develop a 3-view composite display using two and three custom content types. You will also be able to develop a composite display using multiple Attachment Views, to provide a control panel of sorts from which you can view the various content types. Finally, we will put the home page together making use of Views, blocks, a flash slide show, and other pieces.

This book provides several examples of introducing additional displays onto a web page, and having them interact with each other. The result is pages that provide several types of information and behave more like a desktop application, increasing the value to your site visitors.
