I am using the Date Repeat Entity module for generating a checklist for users. I am able to use Views to display the list in chronological order for tasks relevant for the current user using a Contextual Filter. Could I also use a Contextual Filter to only show the current nodes that have a date equal to the current date?

I would think this could be done by entering some PHP code as shown here: enter image description here

  • Instead of using contextual filter, have you tried using/adding regular FILTER (under FIELDS) ?

  • I'm not sure how a regular filter will be able to grab the current day.

Add your date field to the filter.

You will then see this screen

Click apply and continue

Click on select a date, and select relative date

Put today as your relative date.

  • I have no idea where you got that first screen. I have never seen it before. This is now my date filter looks: Imgur. Are you running an additional module? My data type is just a date. Anyway I got the Contextual Filter to work with this code: Imgur. I am just testing it now with various formats. I am really curious though about how you got this screen: i.stack.imgur.com/5qILi.jpg

    ah yes that was it. Enabling Date Views gave me the extra screen and your filter works! Thank you!
