I'm new to D7 but have extensive experience as a site builder in D6.
I created a custom entity type using the Entity Construction Kit(ECK) and then added a bundle with a term reference field using a hierarchical taxonomy and the Simple Hierarchical Select widget. Everything works fine except when I try to build a view to display the fields and filter by the taxonomy terms selected using the SHS widget.
When you start building the view the preselector screen asks what to show; content, users, my custom entity/bundle, etc. If I select my custom entity bundle, taxonomy terms don't show up as available for filtering. If I select content, then my custom entity is not available presumably because content means nodes.
How do I build a view that displays fields from my custom entity and can be filtered using taxonomy? If I create a custom content type instead of an entity, there's no problem filtering by terms, as expected. What am I missing?
