I have a taxonomy field in the user registration form called location, I have a view listing all location terms (taxonomy terms).

I'm having trouble linking the terms to a view (containing the users info based on the location term), when the taxonomy term is clicked in a list of all terms, to display users that have the taxonomy term (with the same location). By default the taxonomy term view is set to display content and I'm having trouble changing that to display users.

  • How can we reproduce this issue? Please edit your question for clarification.

  • I've tried to explain further. What area don't you understand me? Apr 12, 2020 at 10:34
  • In View settings, under advanced, add a telationship of location to your View, that will give you access to add user fields, if that's what you're asking.

You can create a View or Views with pages to accomplish this. The presentation of nodes connected to a taxonomy term on its display page is baked into Drupal separately from Views, I think. I'm not positive about that; I never use it. I'm more likely to go around it for reasons similar to what you're describing.

One page can easily present a list of of your location taxonomy terms. I would use a field-based view, and show the name of the term from the list. Uncheck the box that has the field link to the term directly, and instead check the box for the field to function as a custom link (under "Rewrite Results"), put in some URL that will include the location name, e.g., /user-location/{{ term_name }}. Scroll further down and you'll see "Replacement Patterns". Use what seems appropriate there.

The other page may be field-based or entity-based dependent on your specific needs. It keys off users, and makes use of a contextual filter. That contextual filter is the location term name taken from the URL. The page URL will use the one you set in the first page. Thus this page will present user info filtered by the location term.

  • HI, Thanks for the response i think the issue is with creating the link so it should be user-view/{{ term_name }} exactly? Apr 13, 2020 at 0:02
  • You want use whatever the twig suggestion is for the field. You'll get a list of available information when you play with the settings. Everything should match between the link of the one page and the contextual filter of the other.
