Apr 12, 2018

Dive into the more complex ways the Views module can be used to create content lists with robust functionality. We’ll walk you through a year’s worth of Drupal 8 projects that had their own unique quirks and desires, and show you the little intricacies, roadblocks, and landmines we came across, and solutions not found in documentation. Come learn the creative ways we used to blow through (and beyond) the limitations of Drupal 8 Views and its integrations with other modules.

Manipulate results using pre and post-execute view hooks
Create exposed dropdown filters and custom fields using the Views Plugin architecture
