Views Series - Feeds, Attachments, Grouping Fields and Jump Menus | Modules Unraveled
Creating Table and Feed Displays
Another great feature of views is its ability to generate RSS feeds from content on your site. RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication (depending on who you talk to). Site visitors can use this to display content from your site in a feed reader like Feedly, Pocket or Digg Reader. Any view can have an RSS feed by simply adding a Feed display to the view. In this video, I will show you how to create a new view that will display a table of sale events and include an RSS feed.
Adding RSS Feeds and Feed Settings
In this video, I will show you how to add an RSS feed to an existing display. Then, we'll explore the feed settings.
Creating an attachment display
An attachment is an advanced feature of views that is used to create a view that is a secondary display "attached" to a primary display. In this video, I'll show you how to add an attachment to the block display of our Shop view, which will display a list of users and the products they have posted.
Grouping fields by date
A common use case for grouping by fields, like we did in the last video, is to group posts by date. So, in this video, I will show you how to use a custom date field to group all content by year and create a yearly archive.
Creating a Jump Menu
In this video, I will show you how to create a jump menu. Jump menus basically give quick access to commonly accessed content. We’ll create a jump menu to shop by Department.
