With some design in mind, I have to display the some content of one node to another node. For ease of understanding, I have just put some drawing.

Suppose, I have,

Content type: Article which has -> Node/5 which has -> field_123 (Text type)

and I want to show that field content to another node,

Content type: Basic Page which has -> Node/6 which will be -> copy_field_123 (Text type)

Hence, in short I want to display content of one node to another node. I do not want entire node content to be transferred to another node as it is, but a specific fields which I choose.

enter image description here

Any suggestions, please?

  • and don't you want to use entity reference? – Codium Aug 12 '16 at 7:31
  • I am open to use any module, no restrictions. I have not used entity reference, I have assumption that it provides just link to that content. I will further check that module, if I can get it done with that. – CodeNext Aug 12 '16 at 7:36

    I think ER is the way to go. It has integration with node display settings, views etc. – Codium Aug 12 '16 at 7:37
  • It doesn't just link to other content. Entity Reference will let you build a view to show that node's content. The CSS can be done by adding the node type's id selector. – Niall Murphy Aug 12 '16 at 7:38

    Selecting the node is fine. When you create a view after, you can just select the fields you want. – Niall Murphy Aug 12 '16 at 11:09

I think after some research I found the solution. Again Thanks to @Niall Murphy and @drupality For their input.

I think for my purpose Field Reference will be the right module. As it not only allows to choose the particular node, but which field you want to choose from that particulate node.

Although any suggestion is appreciated.

  • Nice research :) – Codium Aug 16 '16 at 8:13
  • @drupality Haha...it is not a research, but I just found as I tried ER but it was fetching whole content, so I thought to check whether there are other reference modules are there or not, And found FR. So, automatically 'Research' word came to mind..funny..:) – CodeNext Aug 16 '16 at 10:54
  • You can always use custom display for your node and add there single field. IMHO you can do this by ER also. – Codium Aug 17 '16 at 7:24
