Compose tips

  • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
  • The Views module allows administrators to create dynamic lists of content for display in pages or blocks. It is possible to insert those lists into existing node bodies and blocks, but such inclusion requires that PHP filtering be turned on. The Insert View module allows any user to insert view listings using tag syntax, without the need for PHP execution permissions. The Insert View tag syntax for embedding a view is relatively simple:

    [view:my_view]

    is replaced by the content listing corresponding to the named view (in this case, my_view).

    [view:my_view=5]

    limits the listing to 5 entries.

    [view:my_view=10=1,2,3]

    limits the listing to 10 entries, and passes a comma delimited list of arguments (in this case 1, 2, and 3) to the view.

    Here's an example you could use with the default view named "tracker" which takes a user ID as an argument:

    [view:tracker=5=1]

    In short this tag says, "Insert the view named tracker, limit the number of results to 5, and supply the argument/user ID 1."

    Sometimes you want to pass an argument without placing a limit on the number of results. You can do that by leaving the limits position empty, like so:

    [view:my_view==1]

    You can use a pager with your view by using the following syntax (note: you must set a limit which will serve as the number of nodes per page):

    [view_pager:my_view=3]
