Hello i was hoping to create a block to attach to the taxonomy/term/* page but i am running into problems with the date arguement working with the term argument. I have just cloned the archive view and disabled the taxonomy view, added the arguments but to no avail.

Has anyone ever achieved this before with D^ and Views 3?


  • Sorry, your question doesn't make any sense. You say your problem is "the date argument", but it's unclear what that argument is supposed to be doing. You want to create a block that does what? – Letharion Nov 26 '12 at 15:30
  • hi Letharion. I was wanting to add a block to each taxonomy term page that lets me browse the term by date (just like the archive block.) Think Archive block but have it working on a term argument and only showing nodes belowing to the term. I dont think it is possible from what i can gather. – Reg Gordon Dec 2 '12 at 22:07
  • If your trying to expose a date in the url it's can be a tricky problem. If you can elaborate on how exactly with a couple sample urls in your question it would help others answer your question. taxonomy/[term]/[dd]-[mm]-[yyyy]/[nid] for example? Or it something else? Or is it problems with the date argument not being exposed or filtered properly in the view? – ransom bot Dec 2 '12 at 22:31

http://www.webbykat.com/2012/02/creating-monthly-archive-block-drupal-7-views While not taxonomy should work. Change the content type from node to taxonomy and as you create it it will be archived. You may need to ad a date entity to the taxonomy and have rules or trigger put in a creation date since I don't believe they are creation date stamped.

    sorry....and that block displays fine. Ive added the same arguments to my taxonomy/term/* page and it is accepting the arguments just fine too. The only problem i have now is to display all terms if the argument is not used.ie folks arrive in a tag term page and it shows all nodes in that term before they click the archive block. The problem seems to be what to do with the Created year and month when there is no argument. Currently i get a blank page as you can see here onlinebanter.com/forum/video-games – Reg Gordon Dec 2 '12 at 22:54
