In Drupal, I would like to display some user related nodes on their "My Account" page. I would like to do so by creating a View that i would add as a field on the user entity (through admin/config/people/accounts/display). I could use Computed Field in order to load and render the view but that is not very convenient as it requires me to write PHP code.

In short, is there a module that allows to add dummy fields containing a view in the "manage display" sections of entities?

Thanks for your help.

There is exactly such a module ViewField.

Viewfield provides a field that holds a reference to a View and renders it whenever the entity containing the field is displayed.

Features Author chooses a view and display from a list. View arguments are supplied through tokens. Administrators may restrict which views may be assigned. Administrators may supply a common value that will be used for all entities in a content type.

  • I tried this module and it adds a field during the entity creation/edition. Is there a way to avoid that (always use default view&arguments) ? Thx btw :-)
