I have 3 node types:

  • category
  • subcategory
  • product

These are all linked using Entity Reference module. All pages have a path (using autopath). What I want to do is show a view depending on the path.

So if I go to categories/category-a/ I want to show all subcategories of that category Same for the products. I want to show all products referenced based on the path.

I'm trying to make a view with path = categories/%

I set a "contextual-filter: content: nid" - "provide default value" - "raw value from url". But when I visit "categories/category-a/" I see the node with this path. The view isn't shown.

Any idea what's wrong here?

You could try out this Article..

The contextual filter should be "content:nid"

The options should be set as follows...

  • The Relationship should be your "Entity Reference: Referenced Entity" relationship

  • Under "When the filter value is NOT available" check "provide default value" and select "Content ID from URL"

  • Apply changes and save view.

  • The problem is I don't see the view at all at the specified path... I'm loading all nodes with type of subcategories, maybe I should make a view starting from categories? Nov 28, 2014 at 14:34
  • When I change the path to "node/%" it works, but that's not what I want ;) Nov 28, 2014 at 14:37
  • Glad you found it!! Nov 28, 2014 at 14:45
  • It's working just fine when I show this view as a block, but what I want to do is show it as a page. Nov 28, 2014 at 14:53
  • No, didn't find it at all ;) I want to "override" an existing path with my view, but that doesn't seem to work :( Nov 28, 2014 at 14:54
