Situation :

  1. I have added few more fields in user registration form using account settings->manage fields. The type of the field is cck address field.

  2. I created a new view as json document, and I added that field to the view as well, but the problem is its not expanding it as the way I wanted. What I mean is, I filled the user registration form address field as first name, last name, street etc etc. but I am either seeing the whole field in a single line under Address tag in json or just a tag like this {"nodes":[{"node":{"name":"admin","field_address":"1"}}]} but what I want is like this:


Any suggestions?


I also had the same issue with Addressfield module. There is a long discussion here regarding this issue. You can find two solution for it by the patch provided by some members.

  • This one works by field formatter modification.

If you apply this patch, add the address field to a view and then you will see in the Formatter drop down all the components of the address is listed. (where before it just said Default).

  • This one works by adding data by field_view_data.

If you apply this patch then you can add the addressfield component in the add field itself. You will have option to add by searching something like "Content:Address(COMPONENT MACHINE NAME)

  • @mad_programmer Please post a separate question for Location components. Let me see it.. – RajeevK Aug 18 '13 at 11:39

Current version of Addressfield (7.x-1.0-beta5) supports displaying address components in views as separate fields.
