When I create a view (block) and create an exposed filter I have the choice of a Filter type to expose between
- Single filter and
- Grouped filters
If I choose the Grouped filters I am presented with an option to chose the Widget type
- Radios or
But if I chose the default Filter type the form lacks the Widget type option.
I cannot think of any reason why the regular exposed filters shouldn't have this widget type option to chose from.
Can anyone tell me ...
- Is there a reason for this?
- Is there any patch that I didn't find until now that fixes this/add's the feature?
There is a hard coded switch in the Drupal core which automatically changes the widget type from checkboxes/radios to select based on the number of options regardless of the Widget type settings in the views form (1-4 options: radios, 5+: select). That issue is patched here: Grouped exposed filter with "Allow multiple selections" ignores widget setting
I don't want the alpha version of Better Exposed Filters module like suggested by some.
