I'm trying to display certain blocks in taxonomy term pages and the nodes associated based on the taxonomy term itself.

Let's say I have 3 taxonomy terms: Bologna, Milan and Rome.

When I'm in Bologna taxonomy-term page I would like to display a block that show the map of Bologna, when I'm in Milan taxonomy-term page the Milan map and so on.

Context module seems to work with node associated to a particular taxonomy term (for example, I'm able to display Milan map block in every node associated with Milan taxonomy term), but doesn't work for the taxonomy page itself.

I think the trick is in Panels. I've enabled the taxonomy-term page override but I do not know how to display blocks based on arguments.

I've used views and panels many times before but never faced this particular problem: It's a bit different that filtering with arguments particular nodes or content types.

Have you tried views contextual filters?

  1. Create a block view.
  2. Add a Contextual filters with Content: Has taxonomy term ID.
  3. defalt value: Taxonomy Term ID from URL
  4. Add the fields to display.
  5. Add the filters.


  • Thank you for the answer @deepak-ml This works when you have to display a particular content based on taxonomy term ID. But how to do that when you want to display particular blocks based on taxonomy term? Block_A in taxonomy_term_A page, Block_B in taxonomy_term_B page, and so on (using Panels).

  • how are the different blocks Block_A Block_B etc are related to the terms ?

  • This is exactly the problem :) How to relate blocks with the terms? There is a similar question here I wasn't able to find a solution using Context module The block_term module seems to be in alpha state and it doesn't mention integrations with views.

    With a content type eg. relative_block with fields image and taxonomy reference ( same vocabulary as actual content type ) and actual content type where you reference the term. The views block will display the image field associated with that term.

  • Yep, I was thinking at the same workaround: in my case, creating a content type called "Map" using the same vocabulary, create the content Map_A, Map_B and Map_C, then a views content pane wich displays only the body field, and then configure as usual Contextual filters and arguments in panels. Maybe we can write down a workaround :)
