using display suite's block field, which i chose a view block.. so when i have view page ('parent' view) it list many nodes. each node has a field for block view ('child' view).
how do i get child view to filter its results by the node id it is being displayed with in parent view? like a contextual filter, but not getting nid from url, but the node the block field is part of.
i like using display suite layouts, but need to rewrite the author field link. so i figure id make view to show the author and rewrite, then insert it into the node view mode as field. but i cant filter the child field how id like.
