This should be very easy, but I cannot figure out why this is not working?

  • I have 2 different content types: Type1 & Type2
  • I currently have a view which displays all nodes of content Type1.
  • I would then like to manually add specific occurrences of Type2.
  • So far, I have done this with a Taxonomy term reference field called TaxType (terms: Tax1 & Tax2)

I have set the view to filter by content Type1, which displays all fine. I then add filter for the Taxonomy Field with the operator of 'OR' but as soon as I add this, it stops showing content Type1?

I would expect this to happen if I left the operator as 'AND'. But with 'OR' it should keep showing Type1 or any occurrences of Tax2.

  • It would help if you post a screenshot of your filter setup. Dec 4, 2015 at 5:30
  • "I have set the view to filter by content Type1" then Content Type2 will never show up. You need to allow content type2 here aswell. Then you would need a relationship or a contextual filter, which would filter stuff so it only shows the specific occurrences of Type2

  • Can you clarify what are the specific occurrences of Type2? is it show only if they have a certain Tax term?

  • @NoSssweat - But they are set up as OR filters. So Type 1 OR Tax 2

I'm not sure if i can help you out with out a screenshot cause i'm also new to Drupal. But my guess is the filters work in a different way from what you think. It might be something like this...

Type1 AND (TAX2 OR xxx OR yyy .. etc.)

Hope this helps. Cheers!
