I added a views exposed filter to block and I want to show the block multiple times on the dashboard page each can have different choices. Can it possible without adding any other display?

Or Can it be possible to change the make the id unique for each occurrences of same exposed filter?

My Actual Need is :

I am using Homebox module for creating a Dashboard for user. I created a view with block display so user can add it in their Dashboard multiple times. I added the Exposed filter of taxonomy terms and I entered the choices of user in my custom table. Now user can add same block with different choices. My questions is how to manage different choices with blocks,because exposed filter have same form id on each occurrences.

  • Hi ; I don't quite understand well. Can we say you need to filter several views by one unique exposed filter ? Commented Dec 11, 2012 at 22:18
  • No, I need to same view multiple times on a page having exposed filter. I added remember last choice in views expose filter. If I added it multiple times on my dashboard page, and select any choices then it changes in all block of same type. But I don't want to change in all block. Commented Dec 12, 2012 at 4:10

While adding a filter there is a dropdown at the top as 'For', by default 'All displays' are selected, by selecting the specific block that particular filter will be displayed on selected block only. Please try and let me know if it worked.

  • And also I am using only one display. So there is no need of that option as you said. Commented Dec 13, 2012 at 7:40
  • you are right, if the same block is being duplicated on the homebox. I am unsure about this doing using the frontend configurations. May be some php patches could do this for you based on the specific form ID.

  • Yeah but I didn't found any patches for it and I am not so expert to create a patch for views. Commented Dec 13, 2012 at 8:48
