I'm trying to use the "has taxonomy term" filter in a view together with Views Populate filters (https://drupal.org/project/views_filters_populate).

The taxonomy filter has not to be exposed because the exposed filter is the one created with Populate filters.

The site admin continuosly add new term to the vocabulary.

Consequently I cannot fill the "is one of" setting for the "has taxonomy term" filter.

I would need some settings like: if the term is in the vocabulary.

Any idea?

It seems strange to me that you cannot use the same input field to search for example in title and in a term reference field.

thank you in advance

  • thank you, but that video does not answer to my question. I can use populate filters module, the problem is how to include a filter for "term reference field" if the related vocabulary is not fixed, but its values grow continuosly.

I've reached this question while looking for something similar and couldn't find anything relevant. Yet, after searching trough views options, I've managed to achieve something I think is the easiest workaround to our mutual issue, which is why I'm resurrecting this question.

First things first, I've created a View to show all the taxonomy terms of certain vocabulary and replaced the output as a link to, say, /disciplines/[Term ID]. Afterwards, I've created a view to replace the taxonomy display page and defined the term id as a contextual filter to the url(using the % replacement). Now every time the admin creates a new taxonomy term, the first view will always redirect to the second one with all the good stuff Views can offer.
