let's say I have 1000 image files on my server and I am paging the 10 newest (2 rows with 5 images each) on my frontpage in a views block, formatted as a 'grid'. The settings of my view are:

Format: Grid, Show: Fields, File: Rendered, and then filter by File: Type (= Image) and sort by File: Upload date

Instead of adding a "see more" link I would like to replace the 10th image with a "see more" button which has the same format as the images. Is there a way to only render a grid of 9 images and tell views which image to use as the 10th?

  • you can set paging to 9 newest and add footer with your custom image and link then style it with css – Aboodred1 Apr 17 '13 at 21:12
  • can i actually move it into the grid with css? well, optically? or will it stay below the grid? – deinqwertz Apr 17 '13 at 21:17
  • it will not be in the grid as HTML; the footer should be positioned in css to look as if it in the grid – Aboodred1 Apr 17 '13 at 21:22
  • I see what you're saying. Thank you, I will give it a try. But is there no way to actually get it into the grid in html from the Views UI? I will be using responsive designs and I don't wanna mess with CSS in each case individually. – deinqwertz Apr 18 '13 at 7:05

But is there no way to actually get it into the grid in html from the Views UI?

As I can see thare is no way for that in views UI.

But here are possible custom solutions:

Solution1

  1. Add "more link" in PAGER section. Than specify link in 'Link display' section under ADVANCED.
  2. Style your link with css

Solution2 Add new views row in [hook_views_pre_render][1]

Solution3 Add new views row in custon views template
