I'm using Drupal 8. I created a new content type (title, body, image, date). The date is a timestamp field.

I used the devel module and the Realistic Dummy Content module to generate a test content for my view test.

I created my test view and chose the date as an exposed filter.

Here is my configuration: enter image description here

And this is my view: enter image description here

When I apply my filter, I want to say all contents having a date greater than my input:

If I test with 01/31/2018 - 02:54, nothing was changed!

But If I test with the unix value: 1538323253, my filter works well!

Any idea please to make the filter with human readable value?

  • What happens if you reproduce the same thing with a Date field? – 4k4 Jan 16 '19 at 10:19
  • The date filter is not working! When I apply it, the result still the same – A.Sana Jan 16 '19 at 10:29

    I'd expect it needs a UNIX timestamp as input... – leymannx Jan 16 '19 at 10:56

    @leymannx, yes thank you! if I test with a value as 1538323253 the filter works well, but it's not what I need! – A.Sana Jan 16 '19 at 11:16
  • Then, please, completely rephrase your whole question. – leymannx Jan 16 '19 at 11:19


This will add the native HTML 5 date popup widget to all date fields in views filters.

But this module won't work with timestamp fields.

    OP doesn't use a date field. OP uses a timestamp field. Does Date Popup work with timestamp fields as well? – leymannx Jan 16 '19 at 11:41
  • Oh! Yes, it won't work with timestamp fields. Updating my answer – ktrev Jan 16 '19 at 12:14
