I am trying to create a views with tabs: so that a page that has several tabs, the View has a primary page that shows all Article nodes, a tab for all Event nodes, and a tab for Blog nodes. Something should works like this:

enter image description here

  • "Content" button in menu links to /content,
  • "Articles" tab links to /content/articles,
  • "Blog" tab links to /content/blog,
  • "Event" tab links to /content/event.

However, with my work, this is what I got:

enter image description here

all the 3 tabs link to /content, instead of /content/articles, /content/blog, /content/event.


Below is configuration of my view:

  1. enter image description here
  2. enter image description here
  3. enter image description here
  4. enter image description here
  5. enter image description here
  6. enter image description here
  7. enter image description here
  8. enter image description here
  9. enter image description here

So basically, the tabs shows up, but the links of tabs are all pointed to /content, rather than their individual link.

What have I done wrong? Please advise. Thanks in advanced!

I've not had the pleasure of Views 3, but I think I can see what's wrong. I believe you want to have three displays:

  1. Articles, which has a default menu tab (and you want Views to provide the parent menu item)
  2. Blog, which has a menu tab (but not default)
  3. Events, which has a menu tab (but not default)

(Currently the displays are set up as default tabs, which is why they point to the parent item - just like the path for the View tab on a node view doesn't point to node/x/view but points simply to node/x.)


I think I see your mistake. Similar to the above post, you need more views. Just one though. Right after the instructions for creating the Content view, the book has a line " + Add new view". In my book (hard copy version) it's at the very top of page 79. I think you missed that step. You might clone the view you have and delete the appropriate displays to save time, or just create a new one from scratch.

Also you might try the book's site. www.dgd7.org

Sometimes the authors themselves respond to questions there.
