How would i get Drupal to show a 3x3 grid of nodes of a certain content type.

I've tried using both Format:Grid and Format:Table. Also I used Show: Fields and Show: Teasers but it doesn't work out the way I want.

I am wondering if it's best to use 2 separate blocks of 3 nodes with an offset for the second block so that the 1st block shows nodes 1,2,3 and the 2nd block shows 4,5,6.

This is all related to 1 single content type with fields which include. 1 Image, and 1 URL.

    You can show your own view mode (like teaser, but a display format you have defined yourself) in Views, so you could try using Drupal's built-in capabilities or the Display Suite module to get a view mode that shows the nodes the way you like, and then use a grid or table to display that view mode.

  • I had a look at display suite but that looks really complicated. I was hoping there might just be something to add to the CSS to make it work Oct 5, 2017 at 15:42
  • You don't need Display Suite; you can use view modes without Display Suite and handle the display with a theme template. You could also probably do it just in CSS but pure CSS questions are better asked on Stack Overflow than here. Oct 5, 2017 at 16:26

Using format and pager settings this should be possible.

Add Format type of Grid

Format - Grid

Set the number of columns under the Format settings to "3"

Number of columns - 3

Set page to only show 9 items

Page - Display specific number - 9

Set the filter to only show nodes of a specific content type: Filter - Content Type

Now all you need to do is set the view fields, filter, sort, and other options to your liking. Hope this helps!
