I have a design where a car belongs to a brand and let's say a brand belongs to acategory, using entity reference module I was able to display the brand in the car view, but I don't know how to display the category, I tried to set the relationship but it does not seem to work.

Follow this steps:

  1. Add a relationship of brand to the view. This will get you to display the properties and fields of the brand entity.
  2. Add another relationship for the brand field which references to the category entity using the entity reference field. This relationship should use the previous relationship (like nested relationships).
  3. Now you should be able to display the properties and fields of the category entity as well.

Note: I've written this generically; it should work for any type of entities (e.g. Nodes, Users, Files, Taxonomy, etc.)

  • Thanks, I forgot to select the content type of the filter, I have a question though, why can't I see the title of the other Content types in my view ?
