I'm looking to create a entity reference view that filters based upon a field I've placed on the user profile.
I have two content types (Speakers, and Blog Authors) (Speakers will also be blog authors) that I want to as an available list of authors on a Blog content type, so on creation, the speaker can choose the author profile to link the particular blog to, but filtered by only those listed on a particular user's user account.
I've placed an entity reference field on the user account that is a link from a specific user to a specific piece of content of either the Speakers or Blog authors content type (called blog_author_link).
I'm looking to create a view that filters the entity reference field on the blog content type based upon which field is selected in a users profile.
I have a view that successfully lists both content types, but when I attempted to add a relationship from that user account link (blog_author_link), and contextually filter based upon Content:nid and set it to pull from the logged in user's id, it doesnt seem to work. (Yes, There are users that have that attribute assigned, and I've passed those arguments and the filter results in no output). I tried to do a uid, but I dont think that is available on the entity reference view type. I'm a bit over my head.
EDIT: Ok, so It seems based upon when I start passing random arguments into the preview's contextual filter that it is looking doing exactly what I'm telling it to do, filter based upon the NID, when I need to filter based on the UID, but there is no contextual filter for the UID under Entity Reference Views type... Any one have any idea what I'm talking about?
