I am looking for a way to display the list of taxonomy terms in a view indenting the child tax terms. I need to be able to see all Taxonomy terms including the ones that do not have children terms. any ideas?

Domain 1 
    Sub-domain 1
    Sub-domain 2
Domain 2
Domain 3
Domain 4

I tried to follow the suggested solutions but they did not work out for me. The first one in the link is asking you to provide a parent taxonomy term to filter by. I want to get the complete list. the Second one only provide the Taxonomy terms that have a parent child relationship. I need to see all taxonomy terms even if they don't have children. Here is the screenshot of my view setup, I followed the exact steps outlined by louieliu. As you can see it only shows Environment with subchildren of Soil and Weather but does not show the other Domains without subchildren.

enter image description here

  • Thanks, I did a search but did not find this....Ill give it shot and close this one.

  • I followed what was suggested in this post "How to show the parent and child taxonomy term?" but it did not work. I ended up with just the children showing.

  • @Russ You can edit your question to show us exactly how you set it up and how it failed. For now, it is a duplicate. I'll vote to close now, but if you'll edit it, comment @ me and I can always retract my vote (or vote to reopen)

You can also try Views tree module.

Project page says

This module provides a tree-based style plugin for Views. It is equivalent to the tree-based style template from Views 1.

It is based off of the list style. Although it generates a nested view, there is still only a single query run for the view making it quite performant.


This module has been tested and used with the following relationship-oriented modules:

Taxonomy (in core) - parent/child relationships

  • Ok, after writing my own module to implement this, I figured out the views tree module DOES work. The module is a little picky with the way you set it up. Thanks for the lead!
