I would like to use a view field (node reference to an og group, configured to display a teaser) as rendered node inside a view and display the view to anonymous users. Do you know how to achieve this result ?

PS. Currently I can display it for admin user but for non-admin users the view field doesn't appear.

  • PS2. all users including anonymous have permissions to display both nodes (og group and custom node) and the view, still the rendered node field is not displaying in a view.

  • Have you tried giving all permissions to a user group and see if that will enable it? Is "admin-users" user 1 or a group of users?

  • @googletorp what I am looking for is a tutorial showing how to create in Drupal 7 a view of nodes with a rendered field that renders organic group node teaser inside the view row. I would like to create a view that lists nodes (og group content) assigned to different og groups and shows teaser of og group content in each row.

  • @googletorp I think I just managed to eliminate the problem with permissions above (somehow intuitively, maybe updating display suite or some other module to the latest dev version helped?) but I would like to learn how to do this kind of views including og related content in a more controlled way. That is why I was looking for a tutorial here.

If it is working for admins, but not for non admins, you problem is most likely permission. Do the users have permission to see the node? Maybe they need a special permission to see nodes via relationships?

To fix this, you need to tweak your permissions.

If you want to change the way a field is rendered, either on an entity or in a view, you need to create what's called a field formatter, which essentially is a theming function for fields.

  • Thanks, I also think this is permissions related but the point is there are no special permissions to display nodes via relationships I am aware of.

If you have the field_permissions module installed make sure you check the settings for your view field and that the "view any value for field x" is checked for Anonymous users.


Try dumping the node, and see if there are any fields that your anonymous users can't see.


The display suite extras module creates a lot of field specific permissions. If some fields are missing, maybe its because the ds permission was not properly set.

View Title on Node is a new permission, for example. In my installation it was not set for anonymous users.
