When I create a new node of a certain type, I would like to filter a certain field depending on a view. For example I would like to filter through the top 3 latest news stories (as the view will filter though a news story content type which will display the 3 latest news story only so the sort criteria would be by the date).

Thanks in advance!

If you want to show the latest 3:

  1. Set the Fields you want to display, most likely Node: Title
  2. Under Basic Settings set the limit to "3"
  3. Add a Sort Criteria Node: Post date - ascending
  4. Other Filters you'll want to add are: Node: Published - Yes & Node: Type

Hope this helps!

  • Hi! Thanks for your reply I have already configured the views with the relevant sorts and filters. I just need that view to show on a CCK field on node edit. I was guessing the view can have a contextual filter of the NID but still cannot find a way to show it. Thank you anyway!
