I have a classic view with fields from classic nodes. I have made a custom form that reload the view with parameters :


But to display only the wanted data, my view use CONTEXTUAL FILTERS and need this format :


How can I filter my view from $_GET parameters.

  • what do you mean by classic? Does the form reload something with ajax or simply post to the view. What arguments are you passing to the view from the form? – Daniel Harper Nov 20 '13 at 14:50

Hope this will help you,

In Drupal 7 you can achive it by using views php module.

  • Add contextual filter

    enter image description here

  • Select the field using which you want to filter. I'm using Content NID as filter parameter

    enter image description here

  • Add the PHP code for filtering

    enter image description here

  • PHP code

        return $_GET['nid'];
  • Just add the param in the URL

    enter image description here

Note :

  • check the permission of views_php module
  • Make the changes as per your requirement.

Use "Global: PHP" field to get the required parameter value. If views_php is not installed, then use this link, views_php to install the module and give the permission using admin/people/permissions.

Go to your Views -> CONTEXTUAL FILTERS -> ADD -> Select "Global: PHP" then you can retrieve the parameter using $_SERVER[QUERY_STRING] and retrieve the value.

And also you can use $_GET['nid'] to get the value.
