Views Series - Advanced Settings, Exposed Forms, Caching, Theming and AJAX | Modules Unraveled
No Results Behavior and Exposed Forms
In this video, we configure what our view should do when the view returns no results. Then we take a look at how to separate our exposed form from the View and put it in a block that we can position anywhere on the page, just like we would with any other block.
Other Advanced Settings
In this video, we'll take a look at the first eight options in the "Other" section of the Advanced Settings: Machine name, Comment, AJAX, Hide attachments in summary, Hide contextual links, Use aggregation, Query settings and Field language.
Views Caching and Theming
In this video, we'll take a look at the last three options in the "Other" section of the Advanced Settings: Caching, CSS class and Theme.
Creating a Dynamic Block with Views
Dynamic blocks are commonly created by contributed modules, and static blocks can be created in the blocks administration area. In this video, we’ll use Views to randomly select an ad from a list of upcoming sales and display that ad in a block.
Using AJAX and Cloning Displays
In this video, we'll edit our Shop view and add a block that will contain the most recent products. We'll use AJAX to page through products, and we'll clone the block display so that we can display the block in different locations on different pages.
