I have two Content Types with the following fields:

  • Scenes

    1. Scene Name
    2. Starring (Actor's names)
    3. Streaming Link
  • Releases (DVD Releases)

    1. Title
    2. Description
    3. Starring (All actor's names from all Scenes referenced)
    4. Scenes (Entity references to the Scene Content Type)

My question

When displaying a Release node, how can I get Drupal to generate the list of Starring Actors by taking the names from the 'Starring' fields in the Scene nodes that have been referenced?

Two suggestions

First, the most common solution:

  1. Create a View
  2. Add a "relationship" from Release to Stars
  3. Add whatever fields you want to display, in this case, "Name", and make they "Use relationship Stars".

Second, what I would have done:

  1. Create a suitable Panels Page for Releases
  2. Create a mini-panel for Stars
  3. Add the Stars reference field to the releases page with "Panels reference formatter", choose the mini-panel as the formatter.
