I am using oembed to convert url to embedded content. I have enabled the oembed input filter in a text format. Now I want to create a block using views to only show the posts which have these links. How to do that?

Note: I want to use it on a custom form. Is there something which can detect embedded content in a view. By this I will be able to create a separate view/block containing the embedded content.

Just wanted to make sure you've tried this simple approach. Create a check-box field for the all posts (whatever content-type it is) you were referring to with options embedded or non-embedded and create a view with a filter to only display embedded content.

Edit: Have a checkbox for the content-type (responsible for posts) which asks anyone creating posts if they are using the oembed text filter, give a description to check "embedded content" if they are. Then create a view and pull all the posts by setting the filter- "CheckboxName (isOneOf) Embedded content".

  • I think I did not get you. As I have mentioned above, I am using text filter not field. Can you please elaborate?

  • What if I am not using a content type? Actually I am using statuses module which is not an entity.
