I am adding taxonomy terms to groups (using the group module) and want to use the terms to filter groups within a view. However, my exposed filters don't seem to work. There is no error, but the behavior of filters is not what I expect.

When I request the display of A-term groups and B-term groups (from two different vocabularies), the view displays nothing. It is not logic.

Question: is group module compatible with taxonomy core module? I mean: is it possible to add taxonomy terms directly to groups (and not group contents)?

Here is my view:

  • It is possible to add fields to groups. Taxonomy is also fine. Are you using one filter and selecting A-term and B-term? or is A-term selected in one filter and B-term selected in a second filter? – sonfd Jan 15 at 13:06
  • Here is my taxonomy structure: - vocabulary A : terms A1, A2, A3 - vocabulary B : terms B1, B2, B3 and my group structure: - group A1 : terms A1 - group A2 : terms A3 - group A3 : terms A3 - group B1 : terms B1 - group B2 : terms B2 - group B3 : terms B3 – Edeation Confluence Jan 15 at 13:13
  • So you're putting Term A as the value for one filter and Term B as the value for a second filter? (when you are filtering the view and getting your unexpected results) – sonfd Jan 15 at 13:19
  • as long as the fields are left empty the view is correct, but if I select a combination of fields I no longer have any results. Yet I put a OR in the filters – Edeation Confluence Jan 15 at 13:29

By default, all Filters get added to the same Filter Group (a filter group is just a group of filters that share a logical operator, e.g. AND or OR). The default behavior is to put all filters into the same group with the logical operator AND. This means that if you have Filter A, Filter B, and Filter C, the view will only produce results that have the value from each filter, Filter A, Filter B and Filter C.

You can review your filter operators and grouping by clicking the Dropdown Button for Filter Criteria and choosing the And/Or Rearrange option.

Views Filter Criteria And/Or Rearrange screen showing Filter A, Filter B, and Filter C in one filter group with logical operator AND

However, it sounds like you want Filter B and Filter C to use an OR Filter group, i.e. you want the view to show results where the content has the value from Filter B or has the value from Filter C.

To do this, you need to make sure that Filter B and Filter C are in their own Filter group and that group's logical operator is set to OR. If you only have the two filters, you can use the original grouping, but change the operator. However, if you have other filters, e.g. my example with 3 filters, you'll need to create a new group.

After you create a second filter group, you'll see that you can control the operator for each filter group and you can also control the operator between the filter groups.

In an example with Filters A, B, and C, if I want to display all results where content has the value from Filter A AND the content has the value from Filter B OR Filter C, I would create two filter groups:

  1. Group 1: with only Filter A
  2. Group 2: with Filter B and Filter C

I would then set the logical operators:

  • Group 1's logical operator would be set to AND (the default, there's only one filter here so it shouldn't matter).
  • Group 2's logical operator would be set to OR (as we want to get results where the content matches either of the Filter B or Filter C, it does not need to match both).
  • The operator between Group 1 and Group 2 would be set to AND

I do not think that there is a way to do that unless I do not understand the question correctly.

Group (Types) are meant to be used as content types and thus you can not attach taxonomy terms directly to them. Groups are meant to be used as nodes. If you want all the groups in a specific group type to belong to certain taxonomy term then you can maybe work something out with the default value of the reference field.

Now concerning your question specifically, i would first check if there is any mistake in the view's configuration. If I get this right, you wish to display groups that belong to terms A.term and B.term so your are probably using the combined filter. Could you share your view configuration, in order to further examine your issue?

  • My answers : 1) views is correctly set, I have no error nor warning, 2) The vocabulary are correctly set: Group types have a taxonomy type field whereas groups have taxonomy terms. There is a problem with exposed filters. Let me export my view – Edeation Confluence Jan 15 at 11:46
