This answer explains the set up I currently have. I have cloned the Taxonomy Term view built into views, and added some extra filtering etc. To create a depth aware list of nodes for taxonomy terms as linked by pathauto (pattern
pub/by/[term:vocabulary]/[term:name]). So for example previously a link to
/pub/by/publisher/asian-development-bank would provide me with a list of nodes that had associated Asian Development Bank in a term reference field with the node.
This is site is bilingual, and the publisher vocabulary has an acronym field, and on the node creation form, I needed the autocomplete to return results for the name entered in either English or Japanese, or the acronym.(more detail in this question) Which required me to change the fields referencing the publisher vocabulary to be entity reference fields instead of term reference fields.
The problem is that now
/pub/by/publisher/asian-development-bank is an empty list. I'd like to override
/path/by/publisher/% links to use an entity reference relationship to search for the term rather than the means that the default Taxonomy Term view does. The issue is that the path in the Taxonomy Term view is
/taxonomy/term/% utilizing the value coming from the destination query variable.
How can I create a view that will still use those links generated by pathauto, but actually return results from the entity references?
Just to complicate things a little, each node has two entity reference fields to the publisher vocabulary:
