The following seems simple to me but i can't get it done in views:
A taxonomy vocabulary has two relevant fields: Name and Image. In the nodetype associated with this vocabulary i use Name as the linking field (i can not set the field up to directly use the image) but in the node view i want to show Image instead of Name. In my case Panels handles the display of my nodes. I turned to views and tried two alternatives with a taxonomyterm view and a content pane display:
Add both vocabulary fields and rewrite the output from the Name field to use the Image field. If i put the Image field first i can see a replacement pattern that seems to match the Image field, but the result is crap. I think a real link between the node and the tax-terms is missing;
I added a contextual filter with Taxonomy Term: Name but get stuck because the value is not in the URL. Everything i tried in options like "Provide default value" and "Specify Validation Criteria" fails. Also, using the Argument Input option in Pane Settings, picking Name from the node list under "from context" seems to do nothing. When i enter a valid Name value in Views Preview it returns the corresponding Image, exactly like i want. But someway that value isn't read when the view is run for real.
Any clues? Thanx in advance!
Kind regards, Cas
