I have a few thousand nodes with different dates as one of the fields. I am trying to create an exposed filter in views that allows the user to filter by day, month, or year.
For example, I would like someone to be able to enter "July" and get all the nodes associated with July, regardless of their day or year. I would also like users to be able to filter for "July 6" of any year or only "July 1973." Likewise, I would also like the user to have the ability of drilling right down to "July 6 1973" with the filter.
I have created a view with day granularity and an "equal to" operator. While this allows the user to select by day, month, and year ("July 6 1973"), any time only day, month, or year is put in, the form indicates that the other parts of the date need to be entered as well.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
