I have a pretty simple view in D7:

Fields

  • nid
  • title

Contextual Filters

  • nid
  • date (from date, monthly granularity)

Now I'd like to fetch some results for a specific node, but across multiple months. I was hoping to be able to pass in the contextual filter arguments via the url like so:

123/201302+201303

This isn't working for me though. Is this even possible with Date fields in Views ? I heard it was only possible with term ids right now.

Are there other techniques to accomplish this? Perhaps hook_views_query_alter() is in order here.

    did you try views_embed_view('viewname', 'display_name', array(123,'201302+201303'))?

  • Thanks for the suggestion about views_embed_view, I will give that a try next time. For now, I ended up just going with a hook_views_query_alter and modifying the where condition to span across both months. I did this because I am using Panels to place the view on the page, and didn't want to render the view via code. Feb 27, 2013 at 16:54

Try with the following method using views_embed_view():

views_embed_view('viewname', 'display_name', array(123,'201302+201303'));

Or by using a hook_views_query_alter and modifying the where condition to span across both months.
