I am creating a view block to be displayed on every page of a specific content-type. Among other things, this view shows a field from that content type. How can I configure the view so that it will only display the field data from the page it is on? Right now it shows the data from every instance of that content-type field. Is there a way to reference the 'parent' page only?
You van do this with a contextual filter on your block view.
There is a very gold tutorial located here: http://dannyenglander.com/blog/using-views-contextual-filters-create-related-content-block-drupal-7
If anything is unclear dont hesitate to ask! ;-)
