This is the scenario:
There are multiple products (paintings). Each one of these paintings has one author, which is defined with a content type.
There is a reference field form the product to its author.
The view picks the author image in the FIELDS section, a relationship had to be set for this. So far, so good. This displays all author pictures.
The contextual filter
This is where I'm having trouble. I choose ID (that is the product's ID), which is supposed to be in the URL and that way the filter would be applied but it does not.
As a matter of fact, there is no possibility to choose the product's ID as the contextual filter. Edit: The product ID is there, and the the View works now in Views UI, when testing. But it displays the wrong picture in the Product display.
And it is because of the URL, Pathauto generates this type of URL:
where 69 is the product ID.
Where does this
?v=79 come from?
If I navigate to the product's admin screen, the link will be correctly displayed on the bottom left part of the browser window, and if I only provide the URL:
mysite/product/product_id, the product gets correctly displayed, but the View does not take effect, meaning, it gets displayed, but the right picture has not been filtered out correctly.
Has someone an advice to put me in the right direction.
