Easy table + views integration using the Data Module

Fri, 10/14/2011 - 22:04 -- btmash

I was recently tasked to import data from a deprecated database table (Q&A) into a Drupal 6 site. Regarding the data that was being imported in:

  • It is a one-time import.
  • It boiled down as one flat database file
  • No new content of this type will be added again. Ever.
  • It should not appear in search results
  • They need an easy way to go through all the data.
  • It would be great if it could be filtered through and made searchable.

Correcting views queries using views_query_alter

Letters representing tables linked to each other showing complex relationships.

I like problem solving. My good friend Oliver knows this and recently came to me with a Drupal problem that involved nodes related to other nodes and presenting them to the user in the correct order. For the Food Republic, he had galleries which contained story nodes which you could go through via a pager (showing the photo content one item at a time). Both an issue of views and *not* an issue of views, we needed to figure out a way to continue utilizing views while giving correct results.

Using the JQuery UI Date Picker for event navigation

The jQuery UI Datepicker is a fantastic way to browse through dates.

For a site I am currently creating in Drupal 7, I have a bunch of events and I need to show a view of the content in a non-traditional calendar way (Listing of events for a week, a pager to go back and forth in the week, and a calendar block which lets the user select the date (week) they want to see events occurring on).
