As part of a migration from drupal 7 to drupal 8, I currently have a rather original node display method that I'm trying to reproduce to Drupal 8, but without success. Currently on Drupal 7, this method is filled by a custom preprocess that I try to remove in favor of views / entity reference.
Here is the procedure: I have a node type that contains tags (field_tags), with for example the vocabulary 'news' from the 'Users terms' term. And basic content (title, body...). I would like, via an already existing block having a field tags and value 'news', recover all the nodes with the tag 'news'.
Recap of entities I have tried:
Node: - title - body - field_tags / value: 'news' (reference to "User terms")
Views name 'flow': - display: content - contextual filter: 'Content: Has taxonomy term ID' > 'Display all results for the specified field' & Content: Nid - relationsips: nothing, because I can't add a entity reference to a block
Block name 'block flow' : - title - field_tags / value: 'news' (reference to "User terms")
I would like when I create a block type 'block flow' with 'news' tags, get all node type that containing the 'news' tag.
I can't get it working because the views relationships don't allow me to reference the field 'field_tags' from my block (only content or taxonomy available). We have a theme preprocess who can do that but I would like to know if there is a workaround ou any contrib module doing that.
Why I don't create a block from the view? Because in our process, we don't give access to the views of our contributors.
