I'm surprised to not be able to find anything about this seemingly simple or routine request.
Suppose I have nodes that have long titles. They have menu items created the usual way, with short form titles.
I want to make a view of nodes that uses the menu item title of the nodes instead of the full title. However:
- There are no fields I can see that relate to the menu item,
- I can't see any available relationships that would access the menu item and make it available.
As a workaround I'm creating a custom field "subtitle" specifically for the views titles, but it's a bad workaround. Is there no way for Views to see the menu item of a node?
