I'm using the views module's built-in "Taxonomy term" view which overrides the way Drupal displays taxonomy by default and makes it accessible to views. However, this only works for content, not users.

I tried creating a new view that lists users but there is no contextual filter like "User: has taxonomy term", just "Content: has taxonomy term." In my case, however, some of the fields I want to display are term references stored on the user profile; they don't exist on any content.

Ideally, this is what I want: if a user visits the page taxonomy/term/oranges, it will show all users who have "oranges" in a taxonomy reference field. How can I do this?

  • I guess you'll have to use a Relationship in your View. If your user has the field, it will appear in the list.

  • I have already configured a relationship (Content: Author). However, though this makes the taxonomy term available under Fields, I am trying to show the users that have been "tagged" with the taxonomy term based on the term ID (The "Taxonomy Term" view shows all content that has been tagged with a term; I want to do the same for users.) Adding a relationship alone does not allow me to do this. Commented Mar 22, 2012 at 12:11

    There doesn't seem to be a direct way to do what you want, at my great surprise. This thread, though, contains some snippets which should do the job.

I ended up implementing this by overriding the taxonomy page with panels instead of views. I then made the old view taxonomy term override into a content pane. Then, to get the "User: has taxonomy term" effect, I made a view (content pane) for each vocabulary with a "Term ID" contextual filter (supplied as a panel argument) and a relationship of "Taxonomy term: User using MY TERM". I then added these views as content panes to the taxonomy override in panels.

I had to do this for each vocabulary, but it works.


I found a different solution by using EVA.

In my case, I have a dentistry website that has a taxonomy vocabulary named as "Expertise" and terms named as "Endodontics‎, Pedodontology‎" etc.

Dentist members can choose their area of expertises from this vocabulary on their profile2 pages ("Field: Expertise" as a term referenced field, profile2 is not neccessary at all).

I was trying to show term related dentists on taxonomy term archive pages. So I did this:

  1. I created a Profiles block View that displays fields (You can create Users block if you don't use Profile2)
  2. Added a Relationship -> Profile:Expertise
  3. Added a Contexual filter -> (term from field_expertise) Taxonomy term: Term ID
  4. Added an EVA Field
  5. Selected Entity Type: Taxonomy Term
  6. Selected Budles: Expertise
  7. Selected Arguments: id
  8. Set up EVA field "Visible" from "Expertise" vocabulary display (admin/structure/taxonomy/EXPERTISE/display
