I'm not going to use the real scenario here, just a very simple one that I think should be working.

I have a View. This view does access some Solr stuff.

I've added a new field to the view. It's a Global PHP field. My end goal of this is that I'd like to make this field sortable when you click the table heading.

In the "Value code":

return "asdfasdf";

In the "Output code"

  print $value;

This returns... nothing. No errors, no output. This is the simplest example I could think of. Am I missing something here?

"Output code" does display other things, even complex things if I ask it to. It just seems like "Value code" is being completely ignored.

It works for me. I put the information you said in a PHP field and it printed out as expected. I imagine it's a caching issue or something else about your site that is causing the issue.

  • Okay. Thanks! I have a feeling it's related to the view being generated using Solr data.
