I have 2 profiles that have two different taxonomy term fields that point to the same vocabulary (the reason that I created 2 different fields instead of one is that I want the users that handle the two profiles to be able to select different amount of vocabulary terms). If I try to create an exposed filter (select list) in views 3 I can only create 2 different exposed filters: one for profileA and one for profileB. I want to be able to merge them into one.
The "Global Combine Fields" option does not work since I want to expose a select list and not an input field. All the relationships that I tried to create are specific to one field or another (and not to the targeting vocabulary for example).
My question is: can I create an exposed filter based on the vocabulary (instead of the fields) that will filter the profiles based on whether the specific term(s) that were selected are in either the profileA's field and profileB's field?
I would like to know whether this is possible directly in views 3 with a method that I'm missing or if I could create a custom exposed filter programmatically. If the answer is the latter, I would really appreciate if you could point me to an article that shows how you can create such an exposed filter (or a similar) since I do not have any experience at all in the specific field.
