I want to create a view with specific nodes. How can I tell views specific node ID's in a list to display?

So for example, I want an unformatted list with node id's 33, 30, and 15.

I tried using the Filter Criteria: Content:NodeID. The problem is that it only allows for numeric value evaluation. It works when i specify using ONE node id. If I add another, it doesn't display anything. If I add another filter using Content:NodeID and specify another node. It also doesn't do anything.

It allows for a regex, but I'm not sure that even with a regex it would allow me to drop in a list of NID's.

  • Provide node ids as argument to views. Its simple i think.

  • Yea I tried doing that in the filter criteria... but it didn't work because once you add ANOTHER Node ID. Nothing shows up. Aug 14, 2012 at 14:17
  • depending on what version of drupal you are running, drupal.org/project/viewsphpfilter provides what you are looking for.

  • Yea, Sorry I didn't specify. I'm running 7. Just changed the question to reflect that. Aug 14, 2012 at 14:32
  • @Jimajamma Do you know if there is an alternative like Views PHP Filter Or drupal.org/project/views_node_filter But for D7? Aug 14, 2012 at 15:20

If specific means fixed, you can use fixed value for context filter.

  1. Add contextual filter Content: Nid.
  2. Allow multiple values for this filter in More fieldset.
  3. Input your NIDs as a default value, where + means OR:

In some cases Nodequeue can be useful.
