I have created a Taxonomy Term view in Drupal 7, and list out all my terms through "Taxonomy term: Name" field.

Now, I wonder how to extract the link path of each term so that I can reconstruct and adding the passing value through the url.

A quick solution will be:

  1. Use "pathauto" to generate path for term pages (taxonomy/term/term_id => fruit/apple)

  2. Use "global redirect" to force default path to custom paths

  3. In your View build the URL like taxonomy/term/term_id?quantity=100 and should be translated at rendering time to fruit/apple?quantity=100

Thank you.

  • Thanks! It works! Actually without using "global redirect", the "taxonomy/term/[tid]?quantity=100" applied in View's field link path will still rendered to "fruit/apple?quantity=100" automatically. I guess the Pathauto do the magic. However, if I enable "global redirect", when typing the "taxonomy/term/1" in the url manually, it will automatically force default path to custom path "fruit/apple". Great thanks!
