Views comes with a default taxonomy view packaged with it.

I can see it over here and modify it:


Taxonomy term 
A view to emulate Drupal core's handling of taxonomy/term  

Now how do I actually "view" this view!

I want to clone it, modify it and experiment, but can't access it from front end...


The % symbol in the URL works a placeholder for a parameter. So if you access taxonomy/term/1 or taxonomy/term/2 note that the number is actually the term id, so that is the way you "view" (access) the view. You can see, edit, add, delete or modify those parameters if you click the advanced option in the view and you will see the option "Contextual filters".

Now, to clone it, you can access the up right button and then click the "duplicate" option, wich for this case will have a URL /admin/structure/views/view/taxonomy_term/duplicate. Note that this will clone all the view and its styles, in this case, will duplicate a view with two styles: the page view and the RSS view.

  • Ok, yes, this works, but the fields aren't displaying, do you know of any good tutorial on youtube or anywhere that could explain how that works? Thanks ;) – Bruno Vincent Oct 8 '17 at 3:37
  • I've changed from teaser to fields, played around with it, but can't seem to be able to display anything both on backend and front end – Bruno Vincent Oct 8 '17 at 3:37
