I created an exposed filter for my View that aggregates user-submitted webform data. I was hoping this would allow them to search the View for specific webform entries. Unfortunately, the View remains unsortable by column (although I checked the option to make every column sortable), and whenever I search via my exposed filter, it comes back with 0 results.

I've attached images of my Filter and View settings... am I doing something wrong?


View Settings: View Settings

Filter Settings: Filter Settings

Table Settings: Table Settings

Check your FORMAT -> Format: Table | Settings for a checkbox that says Override normal sorting if click sorting is used and turn it on if it is not already.

  • Hi Darvanen, Thanks so much for your advice. I checked, and that checkbox is checked. I'll edit my post to show my Table Settings, too. Any further advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • I wonder if the combined filter is interfering, maybe try removing that?

  • I thought that the exposed combined filter is what allowed the users to search?

  • Okay, interesting - I removed the filter, and yes, now the columns are sortable. Now, how would I get search functionality, too...
