Drupal: merge two pages inside a view

These quick steps show how to merge two pages inside a view, one on the top and one on the bottom:

  • Create a view.
  • Create two pages inside the view.
  • Within each page there is an option to put something in the header and something in the footer.
  • Select the page that you want to be on top and click “add” in Footer.
  • Select “Global: View area”.
  • Select “This page (override) near to “For”, and apply (to apply the changes only on the current page).
  • Select the page you created in “View to insert”, and apply.

Extra: The page will be put as-is under the first page but the title of the second page won’t appear. If you want to put a text on top of the second page, do exactly as before to the second page but instead of “Global: View area” select “Global: Text area”.

This can be a workaround for those searching for how to merge views.

Drupal: show only upcoming events (Calendar module)

These steps allow you to hide past events and show only the upcoming events (if you don’t have the Calendar module yet, here’s an excellent video that gets you started) :

  • Go to the Events view.
  • In FILTER CRITERIA, click on “Add”.
  • Search for the event end-date e.g. “Content: Event date – start date .(field_date)”, and apply.
  • In “Configure extra settings for filter criterion…”, click on “Cancel”
  • Select the event’s end date (something like: Event date – end date), and apply.
  • In “Configure filter criterion…” window
    • Under Operator “Is equal to”.
    • Change “Select a date” option to to “Enter a relative date”
    • Under Relative date, write “now” (also read the note under the textbox for more options), and apply.
