I have a magazine type project but articles are grouped into editions(issues). So I have 2 content-types interconnected using node reference.

What I need is to create a view to display only the articles of the last edition on frontpage. I can use a criteria of edition date or edition number (need the last one). Unfortunately I cannot find how to do do it. What value of the operator to enter.

enter image description here

  • Last edition means your last node on that 'type' ?

What if you filter by Edition Date, order it by descending, and display only first value?

It should give you the last available edition, if I'm not mistaken.


just enter the date as the value. If you are not sure about the format just add the "field_date" to show on the screen and copy and paste the date you want to filter by.

  • Thanks for the idea but I need a generic variable (of last date) so when the new edition comes up I don't need to update the view filter too. Oct 27, 2011 at 5:58

    I assume this can be done using contextual filters? Oct 27, 2011 at 7:58
