Hi I have a bunch of items which occur on a given day of the week. So i have a text field called Day, and it's populated by the words 'Monday', 'Tuesday', 'Wednesday' etc. Is there a way to sort this in views that will list items in Weekday order. I can only find options for alphabetical order.
This could be working for example if you'd use a taxonomy term reference instead of a text field. Just create a taxonomy with your workdays as terms.
- use these tags on your content
- in views add a field to show the term your content is tagged with
- in the format options choose 'group by' and select your taxonomy field
Now the content should be grouped by the workdays. To achieve the correct sorting order you can either rely on the term-ID (which is created in chronological order) or just arrange your terms with drag and drop (in the terms dialog).
