Has anyone worked with filtered search views in MIT Drupal Cloud?


  • Question

Has anyone in the community created search views by topic with an option for external users to choose which topics they prefer to filter on their Drupal site? Similar to https://www.belfercenter.org/research/publication-type/analysis-opinions

If you have, please let me know, very interested in understanding how to get started.


Hi Amy,
It can be created using a module called Views. There are a number of video tutorials out there to get you introduced (google Drupal 7 Views or check out the videos on lynda.mit.edu). Once you've built your view, you can create a filter and expose it to the public to allow them to filter their content as they see fit. You can learn more about that specific step on this youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yk6rre3vi8
