Using views, I'd like to display a grouping of content, something like the following:
(category name for 1-3) 1. FIRST TOP-LEVEL ITEM 2. OTHER TOP-LEVEL ITEM 3. OTHER TOP-LEVEL ITEM 3a. CHILD 1 of #3 ITEM 3b. CHILD 2 of #3 ITEM - CHILD 1 of #3b ITEM (category name for 4-5) 4. OTHER TOP-LEVEL ITEM 5. OTHER TOP-LEVEL ITEM (category name for 6) 6. OTHER TOP-LEVEL ITEM
Using the Views Tree module, I can at least get the heirarchical relationships to work. However, I lose the ability to 'group' all the parent (top-level) items by their category (a taxonomy term).
If I don't use Views Tree, I can categorize all the items and group them under their respective categories, but I can't display the items heirarchically (I define the parent items using node references (References module for D7)).
Has anyone encountered the need to sort a view like this, and if so, how?? I'm at my wit's end trying to do these two kinds of sorts with Views (I'm really stretching my programming abilities here).
